HOME IMPROVEMENT WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS OVER MÁLAGA

Spectacular renovation to a reasonable budget in Málaga Center

BEFORE
AFTER

Situation:  Near the heart of Malaga old town, a refurbishment in an older building in the center, 120 sq m, spectacular sea-and city views, but these were not taken advantage of. The kitchen was situated in the back of the home, missing valuable space and brightness. The narrow rooms & hall ways made the apartment look small, dark, and claustrophobic. Last century equipment: electricity, plumbing. Home-comfort does not exist due to the lack of heating and cooling. Non sealed aluminum windows, simple glazing, perfect for temperature exchanges. This all together means a low Energy Efficiency value = G

GOALS & PROJECT: 

Convert an 1975 old apartment into a spectacular modern home
