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.
