House in Ontinyent, Valencia by Studio Borja Garcia.
Believe to be believed
This design gave a boundless make over to the structure of an existing 40-year old house, transforming it into a comfortable and modern accommodation. The designer successfully divided this two-storey house into a garage, a living room, a dining room, a garden, two guest rooms, two guest bathrooms, one helper suite, a master bedroom suite with a spacious walk in closet and a study room.
The highlight of this design is that it incorporates a sustainable green approach to reduce environmental impact.
The external walls of the house are rebuilt over an old fashion style house preserving the original structure. This not only helps save on building reconstruction cost, but it reduces waste to protect the environment.
Transforming an old fashioned style house into an urban-style home and yet maintaining the original construction without trace is something that deserves to be accredited. Now that environmental awareness or being socially responsible has become an increasing trend in society, bringing sustainability into homes is an alternate lifestyle for the new generation. The design adopted in this case breaks boundaries between interior and exterior space and establishes a green and conscious lifestyle, meeting the needs of a growing demand in society today.
