Text description provided by the architects. Our projects always begin with a detailed study of some preliminary premises:

The space, in this case is an old townhouse with almost a hundred years of history located in one of the towns near Valencia, with a small backyard, and the needs of the clients, a young couple with three year old daughter.

The new layout of the house comes out as a result of introducing these premises into de project, preserving the essence of the original housing, and opening the main spaces to the backyard.

The original structure of the house, of wooden beams and beam fills, turns into an important part of the new layout as well as the old wooden doors that, althoug being in a new position, are all restored and reused to delimit the new spaces.
