A light filled flat

In the central Madrid neighbourhood of Las Letras is the new project of the interior designers Espejo y Goyanes.

It is a modern flat where they have attempted to make the most of the natural light, thanks in part to the small terrace it has at the end. The predominant colour is white and the materials of some old furniture and the ceiling beams have been respected.

For the kitchen, with an amazing central island, they have played with a greenish blue tone and the same marble finish. SVEN, which is placed between the asymmetries of the ceiling, lights up the entire round ceiling. It is made in plaster and blends in perfectly with the entire surroundings.

The bathroom also has Faro Barcelona lighting. It is a space with white laminate walls and NASE downlighters, which, thanks to their technical features, can light up humid spaces such as the bathroom or outdoor zones.

A luxury flat in Hungary

Architect Richárd Somogyi is behind this amazing renovation of a luxury flat in Hungary with the collaboration of Baselight.

It is a home of large spaces with wood as the main element, both in the furniture and on the walls and finishes. A staircase that counterposes the white colour is the clearest point in the entire home, which governs its chromatic scale in the tones of this noble material.

So it is no surprise that in the bedrooms it is the MOOD light fixture that accompanies the headboards. It is also made in light wood and projects an indirect light perfect for resting. Indeed, lighting plays a very important role in the displaying of the design. The round shaped BOARD lamp reflects indirect warm light in the main hallway, giving a leading role to the finish of the wall. It looks like a small eclipse that accompanies you to the bedrooms. The MINE light has been placed in triple format in the reception. Its modern, simple and sophisticated design enables the necessary combinations to be made for each space. As in this flat in Hungary, quiet an architectural luxury.

With view to the Giralda

We walk through the historic centre of Seville to enter the new remodelling project of the architects Jimenez & Linares.

In this incredible location there is a 150m2 apartment with views of the Giralda and the Patio de los Naranjos, which has small patios of light and a design ‘that pays homage to the facades of the civil architecture of the Sevillian baroque’.

To give contrast to this idea, clear and relaxed spaces such as the bedrooms have also been sought, where lighting the two sides of the beds has used the LINK wall lamp in a white finish. Thanks to its rotation, it is a perfect lamp as a bed assistant. In general, the Faro Barcelona wall lamps have been a good solution for architects, who have chosen the most elegant design of Nahtrang, SUAU, in gold finish for the bathrooms. It emits a warm light, also allows rotation and has a built-in switch in the base.

The Wall lamps are design and style solutions that “free” space and allow light to be fixed at a more exact point. They are integrated into the decoration and allow greater comfort in its use.

The modernism of Barcelona

Modernism marked a time of changes in the conception of Catalan design and today it still remains in homes, objects and artistic creations.

An example of this is the last project of the architect Jofre Roca in cooperation with UPO Luce: the remodelling of an old apartment in the central street of Carme de Barcelona, right next to the Ramblas, which was built in 1861 under this current.

Bright, with open spaces and three courtyards, it is a modern house that has exposed many original elements, such as an incredible hydraulic floor, the walls made with old billows, the ceilings of beams and drawings in ceramics, and wooden elements.

To give full prominence to this recovery, the rest of the design is simple and sophisticated, and plays with elements of light-coloured materials and walls. The LE VITA lamp camouflages perfectly in this union, illuminating the master bedroom with the hanging and wall version, which goes from the ceiling to the side of the bed. Photos: Adrià Goula

Estibaliz Martin’s favourites

The Basque interior designer Estibaliz Martin has been working on renovation, interior design and design projects for years. Furthermore, she has been at the helm of her own studio for over five years, creating customised comprehensive projects with meticulous attention to detail to satisfy her clients.

This is probably why she has used Faro Barcelona light fittings for some time. Knowing the people who will occupy the space well helps her to prioritise, to create modern, functional spaces and to choose the most appropriate lighting for each of those challenges.

For one of her latest projects, she chose the BERNI floor lamp to light the living room. It is a large space with a corner next to the sofa that needs a support light and that, thanks to its white finish, goes well with the modern, minimalist decor. Another favourite of Estibaliz is the LINK series, whose table lamp she has put in another space on both sides of the bed and supported on the headboard. In this case, it is important to be able to direct the light beam and that they act as reading lights. And if there is one complete collection that the interior designer has used in more than one corner of the house it is LINDA. She has used its pendant lamp to bathe the central zone of a dining room table, since it maintains a timeless, classic style in order to combine with any furniture finish, and the table lamp to light the entrance and break up the classic style of a rustic table.

Relaxing in Greece

In an amazing countryside setting near the sea is the Casita Casita Lindos Hotel in Greece.

Renovated by the architect Vana Pernari, it has small, but cosy rooms decorated in the purest Mediterranean style. From them all, a large pool can be enjoyed that merges with the landscape. It is an oasis of peace and quiet.

To make the visitor’s stay even more pleasant, the JUST FAN fan with wooden blades has been installed in the double rooms, which not only helps you sleep and cool down, but, thanks to its design, provides wellbeing and elegance. In the jewel in the crown, the two storey suite with dining room, Pernari has gone for the WINCH fan. With a more industrial style and incorporated light, it has been installed in a sloping roof. A brown fan perfect for a space as large as this one.

Each corner is designed for guests to put their problems to one side and relax the mind. The bathrooms facilities and the decorative elements are dark stones, and to accompany the mirrors, you will find MOY wall lights. Small, sophisticated—the interior designer chose the gold finish—and perfect for humid environments. Fotography: Stelios Kalisperis

The magic of the south

In Granada and Marbella are home to the last two renovations by Salto Proyectos, Andalusian architects with many years’ experience.

Seeking elegance and simplicity, they have designed two flats with a lot of personality that make the most of the abundant light in these lands and that mix modernity with open, functional spaces.

In Granada, where the ‘Chueca’ project can be found, the interior designers have centralised the space in a dining room of light tones, complemented with furniture and lighting. The DANKA pendant light presides over the table ‘unobtrusively’ with its subtle design, and the ceiling lights from the LINK collection give a warm welcome in the reception—with a window to the kitchen—breaking up the pale pink of the wall. Following this thread, at the ‘Tetuan’ project in Marbella, the MOY, PLAT, ERES and NIT lights are hung to illuminate some edgy finishes. The terracotta floor is the indisputable protagonist of the entire space, which has been combined with the classic white and a strong blue in the dining room. The ERES wall light is located in the entrance, gives depth to the contrasts and complements the lighting thanks to its double light beam.

PLAT has also been placed just above the table and perfectly enhances the bulb and the fine structure of the diffusor. Some soft, elegant details, such as MOY, which illuminates the master bedroom from the wall, and the NIT wall light placed next to the bed. NIT also has a tray that is perfect to be used as a bedside table. Photographs: Architectural Matter

Eating in style

Grupo Saona has a variety of restaurants spread out over the Valencian capital and coast. They offer home-style, healthy dishes made with top quality ingredients and their spaces perfectly reflect their philosophy: to convey wellbeing and bring us closer to a healthy life and an environment as warm as the beach in Formentera bearing its name.

So, the interior designers Tarruella Trenchs set about cooling down the dining areas with the matte nickel LANTAU fan with dark walnut wooden blades, a finish that blends in with all the spaces and goes unnoticed among wood, esparto grass, fabric and a lot of natural light.

In Madrid, Gandia or Jávea you can find top quality food, spaces with modern, elegant and, at the same time, very Mediterranean designs, and one of our star fans.

The young life

Madrid’s central Argüelles neighbourhood is home to one of Suave Interior Design’s latest projects.

It is a renovation of a narrow, dark flat in a light-filled, youthful style dwelling. To achieve this, the interior designers opened the layout to create large, shared spaces, managing to transport the natural light throughout the inside. The use of neutral materials like wood, light fabrics or wall tones have successfully conveyed the idea of coolness and openness. For the bedside lighting, they used the BOC and ORLEANS wall lights in black and white, respectively, which marry perfectly with the minimalist, soft style of the rooms and leave space for bedside tables.

Faro’s LAO floor lamp in black finish was also used. Designed by Nahtrang, it provides style, elegance and a perfect reading light.

A window to the sky

We go up to the top floor of a building in the modernist city of Reus in Tarragona to enter a new renovation project by LoCa Studio.

The apartment was the concierge’s old home — very typical in these types of buildings, — a small, dark space that the family who lives just below bought to convert into a common zone for relaxation and celebrations. The primary aim of the project was to make the most of the natural light that that floods in thanks to the building’s height, so the first thing they did was to connect the terraces with the building. The architects raised the floor, opened balcony doors and unified the materials of the different spaces and windows.

The result is a spacious flat that is minimalist in style and in which the use of wood and the terrace plays an important role. The layout is open, and it has a living-dining room, a bathroom and a small office. For lighting, the TEN wall lamps in matt nickel finish and the copper tabletop version stand out, perfect as a general light that goes unnoticed. The PLAT pendant lamp organizes the central space of the table and, thanks to the white finish, follows the discreet and modern line of the dwelling. Finally, we also find the PEPPER clip wall lamp in the study area, which with its beige colour accompanies the wood and gives it a touch of personality. Photography: Pol Viladoms
