The owners of this Valencian apartment of 1930, a marriage lover of vintage, they were clear about the objective they wanted to achieve with the reform: "To recover the original character of the house, which had been transformed into an office and that had lost all the elements that characterized the construction of the beginning of the century of the expansion of the city of Valencia, like floors, moldings, doors ... ". This is explained by the architects Isabel Roger Sánchez and Daniel González López, from the DG Architect Valencia studio, who accepted the challenge. In addition, in the list of needs of the couple, there was also that of dividing the house into two zones: one in which they lived throughout the year and another in which their children could stay when they visited them, "without modifying their habitual way of life ", they point out.

The 150 square meters of the floor They were divided into multiple spaces, which the architects removed to redraw a new, more current, functional and open plan. Thus, the rooms located on the main facades, with the viewpoint, were used for the couple's uses: a living room with study area, the kitchen with breakfast office and its bedroom with dressing room and bathroom en suite. The two bedrooms of their children and a bathroom were located at the other end, creating a separate area from the first.

The interior design project revolved around "returning lost character to housing," explains the duo. "In each of the spaces, all the elements have been worked, from the design of the floors and the choice of the roof moldings, to the design of each of the doors and windows." For the decoration they had the good eye of the owners and their selection of pieces vintage that have mixed with more current designs, resulting in a timeless, functional and ready to receive visitors interior.
