A very current duplex on the coast

A very current duplex on the coast

This house breaks all the schemes. Located in an urbanization of Tarragona, just five minutes from the beach, it is a Second home acquired to enjoy on vacation. However, nothing in it reminds us that we are in the typical coastal building. The furniture, with current furniture, design pieces and vintage touches, reflects the interest of its owners in the care environments. In fact, they entrusted interior design to decorator Daria Cenotto, a collaborator of the Moscow APK Studio. The proposal was tempting: a new building, divided into two floors and with large windows open to the outside.

The modern distribution of the building facilitated the decoration. The ground floor consisted of a large living room -which communicated through sliding doors with a large kitchen-, a bathroom and a single bedroom. The first floor was reserved for double bedrooms and bathrooms. Even the staircase that joins both floors, with steel tensioners
instead of railing, it offered a marked architectural design that contributed to raising the decorative level of the whole.

The breadth of the house and the natural light that entered through the windows allowed Daria Cenotto to plan a Eclectic decoration, with different style pieces that capture the attention in each environment. Like the ceiling lamps on the dining table or the geometric print dresser in the guest bedroom.

The bathroom was designed so that two people could use the sink area at the same time.

The towel rail, located at a higher height than usual, solves the problem of the lack of space between the sink and the wall.
