This outstanding building of the Mediterranean architecture is distributed on two floors and has two clearly distinct areas: the day area and the night area.
On both floors, completely open to the outside and with straight access to the garden, we can enjoy the breathtaking views, thanks to the installation of large windows.
Dream Mediterranean architecture in Maresme
With strong traits of a contemporary Mediterranean architecture, and coherent with its location on the coast of Maresme, this could be the dreamed house in front of the sea. At Molins we have designed and decorated this wonderful detached house in what would end up being our project “Équer”.
We worked to create unique and designer spaces, playing with the straight and simple but neat lines, typical of today’s Mediterranean houses.
Without a doubt, this renovation project was built on a concept in which, both the outside and the inside, were conceived with a particular purpose in mind, both designs were forged with the same intention; to provide the fantastic views of the sea and the illuminated swimming pool of the house.
The entrance hall is the axis from which you access to the different areas of the house. On the right, you reach the bedrooms, while in front and on the left, you can find the day zones.
Art in the hall
The entrance to the home exudes contemporaneity and art, thanks to the placement of a large-format painting from the Meninas collection by the artist Alfonso Alzamora, born in Barcelona in 1951.
The view we receive from the entrance door is spectacular. Spacious and very luminous, in keeping with Mediterranean architecture.
Likewise, the double height of the space provides us with grandeur and elegance. Factors that are repeated throughout the entire route.
Sketch of the hall
From the hall, we access directly to the large living room, the main room of the day area at this house.
For this space we designed two environments: a larger living area, in which we designed a custom-made library furniture, in matt lacquered dm with settings for the TV and the fireplace in iron frames; And niches plated in black lacquered iron, as design containers for decorative objects.
The second living area occupies the area next to the windows, with direct access to the large garden.
Decorative and functional resources
The use of paneled elements that hide cabinets is one of the great resources that we usually use in our projects.
In this way we manage to add storage capacity to the space, in a subtle and elegant way, without breaking the harmony that we create in rooms of these characteristics, especially in contemporary style environments.
From the living room itself we access directly to the dining room, for which we designed a large square oak table and a suspended sideboard with drawers, made of the same material.
Oak wood is the material that unifies all the house’s furniture. In addition, we chose a neutral chromatic range, with white and toasted colors as main shades and some pieces of furniture -such as the chairs-, and decorative accessories in black to accentuate the space.
A spacious and functional isle
The kitchen’s large central isle, designed by our team in gloss white laminate, becomes one of the main elements of this space, for its size and functionality.
In it we added the cooking area, with induction hob and “Gaggenau Teppan Yaki” griddle, in addition to the secondary single-basin sink -the main sink is installed on the side front-, to easily access the water, without needing to move around, when cooking.
We managed to make this kitchen isle a particularly useful element thanks to the large compartmentalized drawers, in which you can comfortably store everyday crockery and cutlery and cooking utensils.
With this specific configuration, to which we add the oak-front paneled cabinets and the rest of the side-front modules, we design a kitchen in which it is possible to maintain a perfect organization, an indispensable factor for a space of these characteristics.
Next to the kitchen, in the corridor that connects this space with the hall, we created a large cabinet with glass and oak doors, to store all the crockery and glassware, as a showcase element.
This format, decorative and functional in equal parts, is light and elegant, avoiding visual space saturation.
"The large mirror that occupies the entire front wall of this guest toilet multiplies the depth and breadth of this minimal space."
To create the courtesy toilet in the day area, which is accessed from the hall, we made an exercise of impeccable simplicity, installing only a Duravit backpack toilet and a circular standing washbasin from Alape, to which we added a chromed steel faucet, in conjunction with the toilet roll holder designed by our team.
The placing of a large mirror that occupies this bathroom’s entire front wall, multiplies this minimal space’s depth and breadth.
An example of simplicity for the courtesy toilet
Suite with dressing room and integrated bathroom
For the bedrooms we played with toasted, grayish and earth tones. Thanks to this chromatic combination and the play of warm textures that we applied to the fabrics -cotton and rustic silks-, they provide the comfort the property was looking for.
Undoubtedly, a Mediterranean architectural style that combines perfectly with the home’s design and interior decoration.
"The combination of mirrors covering the sink and bathtub walls serves to reflect, and thus enjoy the outside views, from any corner."
The bathroom, which belongs to the master suite of this house located in a privileged residential area of Maresme, has been custom-made by Molins Design and has been conceived in a continuous and open way to the rest of the rooms of the suite, such as the bedroom and the dressing room, so that you can enjoy the fantastic views of the outdoor garden and the sea this house offers.
With this objective in mind, our team wanted to intentionally play with the combination of mirrors that cover the walls of the area where the washbasin and bathtub are located, in order to reflect and thus enjoy the views from any corner.
Elegance and style in the bathroom
A mirror framed bathtub
A large freestanding oval bathtub presides over this spectacular bathroom, which also has a large shower.
The bathroom sink unit, with two independent recessed basins, has been custom-designed by our team of interior designers in matt lacquered MDF. For the bathtub and bathroom sink area flooring, we chose a three-layer Austrian oak parquet.
For the upper floor, an open-plan space with spectacular views, we designed a multifunctional level with a cinema room and reading area.
A large sofa, custom designed by our team, presides over the home cinema area, while in the reading area we created a large bookcase, accompanied by two comfortable chaise longues, upholstered in black and white striped fabric.
All the furniture in this space is made of oak, as is the case in the rest of the house, and the floor was meticulously chosen.
This floor also has a guest toilet, where the color white is the main protagonist.
The impeccable image of this space provides a greater sensation of spaciousness, thanks also to the chosen pieces, among which the original cubic standing bathroom sink stands out, with straight and refined lines.
We end the project’s tour of this spectacular home right where we began, in the exterior, which has a surface area of more than 1,100 m2 and priceless views. To create this marvellous garden, we chose the furniture for the pool area, the porch and the outdoor dining room.
The contemporary nature of the house and the surroundings led us to choose light pieces, with simple lines and clean design.
