"The atmosphere is wonderful, very familiar, with children of the same ages as our daughters." The house has two floors. On the ground floor are the rooms of the social area - kitchen, living room and dining room - and in the first, the bedrooms with their bathrooms.

Partitions were thrown to get a large open space and the porch was integrated inside of the house, becoming the favorite corner of the whole family.

We chose the materials and the finishes, and the company Reformas Logos carried out the works ”.
