[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A poorly designed and neglected property, the owner wanted to gut it and start again.

Villa Refurbishment • Valtocado, Mijas Costa

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This neglected property, untouched for years, required total modernisation and internal redistribution of the layout to suit the new owners.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In need of a total exterior refurbishment after years of neglect, the facades needed considerable preparatory work to bring them back to as new condition. The client left the decision on paint colours to us and was delighted with the finished result. As the owner decided to start renting the villa, converting the empty basement to provide two additional bedrooms and living space was decided on to maximise the potential income. Ultimately the basement level had to feel connected to the main villa whilst being usable as a self-contained area if necessary.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][qodef_separator position="left" color="#dddddd" width="100%" thickness="1"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text css_animation="right-to-left"] PRINCIPAL WORK UNDERTAKEN   Exterior • Woodwork sanded, treated and re-stained • Walls refurbished and painted • Metalwork stripped, treated and painted • Collapsed patio rebuilt     Interior • All walls and ceilings decorated • Bedroom converted to ensuite bathroom • Kitchen floor tiled • New furniture and soft furnishings     Basement Area • New floor plan designed • New laundry room with kitchenette • Open plan TV lounge area created •...

Villa Refurbishment • Torrenueva

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Unrecognisable villa transformation   Our Norwegian clients asked us to redesign the entire floor layout of their new villa to create another bedroom and create an open plan living area with a luxury kitchen at its heart. The new design meant we had to virtually rebuild the interior of the villa. A 2.7M two sided fireplace divides the area. The concealed cupboards below the black granite hearth houses the Bose entertainment system which connects to the domotic system.   A previously unusable courtyard shrouded in shade was incorporated into the main house with a glazed ceiling ensuring plenty of light in the dining area.   The clients were specific about the kitchen it must be great for entertaining and have a real wow factor. The black glass wall compliments the specially constructed extractor unit. The huge breakfast bar topped in white glass, which was imported from Italy, reflects the glass extractor by Frecan. Built-in appliances are...
