Text description provided by the architects. The work of rehabilitation of the old houses in the Cervantes Street, transforms a building of four apartments in one home, with the rehabilitation of his facades and roofs, and making a new distribution of the interior spaces.

In this project we try to recover the old constructive elements that are hidden behind the coatings or suspended ceilings, putting in value all their properties that are emphasized by the contrast of the new elements or materials used.

We keep the stair in his old position to generate a service band, where you can find the stair-lift-and wc. This band assists to the open spaces of each floor, and they only have a wall of stone that divide the floor and let look the total set like an only space.

So in each floor of the building we have a part of the program of the house, namely, in the ground floor the garaje-laundry, in the mezzanine we have the guest room, in the first floor is the living-kitchen, in the second floor is the master room, and in the attic a read room connected to the roof.

We have worked in all the project with the same material for the floors and coating, the bateig, that is a natural stone of this area.
