Renovation of single-family housing in Can Diumenge

This is a detached house spread over three floors plus a small area located below deck. It is an existing building with local stone cladding, about fifteen years old.

The main purpose of the reform is to adapt the existing building on behalf of the property: a house smaller, two stories high following a current aesthetic trends.

The idea of the project is to reduce tearing down the existing building second floor, deck and interior distributions of the ground and first floors.

In a total area of 756.15 m2, the area to reform is 475.14 m2. The four facades of stone ground and first not demolished, they adapt to the new volume and try to respect the holes in the new project window.

The result is a two-storey building with a new roof topping the group, thus a smaller volume that adapts to the new dimensions, to the neighboring buildings and the desire of the property.

Inside, the spaces on ground and first floors are very open. Both floors are connected spatially by the scale of the existing building that is demolished.

The interior of the housing reform affects two floors as follows: on the ground floor there are three bedrooms with garden access, bathroom, two garages and the technical.

And on the first floor there is a room, a suite, a bathroom, a laundry room, a kitchen and living room.
