Located in the center of a town in Cádiz, this old house with two floors and brimming with light It had an added bonus: its huge roof terrace with splendid views. Without altering the distribution, fun but chaotic, his rehabilitation was entrusted to the architect Javier García-Quijada and the builder Paco Guerrero, whose objective was to improve the interior while respecting his original personality.

On the ground floor the common use environments were grouped in the same space: the kitchen, the dining room and the living area. This gained breadth and luminosity, thanks to the replacement of doors with openings and the change of location of the staircase that leads to the upper floors, which has gone from being next to the entrance of the house to the back area of ​​it. To unify the whole, the owner restored the pavement with hydraulic floor tiles.

The living room also gained some extra meters since the old storage room of the house was integrated. Next is the kitchen, with an office table attached to the wall, which can be moved to the center if the number of guests requires it. Shelves in the walls and hidden work vasares behind curtains compensate for the obvious absence of closets.

On the upper floors are the master bedroom and a guest room which was located on the roof. Both have a full tiled bathroom with traditional 10 x 10 cm white tiles. The furniture of the house, inherited in its entirety, has been recycled and now acquires new utilities. The only novelties are the lamps, the XL photos and some fabrics. For the floor a checkerboard tile was chosen on the ground floor that alternates with a smooth one, on the upper floors.
