An elegant apartment in the splendid location of the capital of Andalusia, Seville. We had the details of the renovation told by A. Manuel Lopez, technical architect of the Egion Studio.

Our services go beyond the simple work of renovation, we believe in the ability of the architecture to spread feelings, this is why we are specialized in the implementation of single design project of houses and commercial spaces, full of style. Our technical training and belief in design have separated us from the reformist competition, we have chosen a path that today leads us to realize projects where residential and commercial interior design must be a distinction element that leads to success. Aware of this, we feel like participating beyond our work, completely involving: the personalized service we give to our customers, mixed together with proposal of complicity and involvement during construction process, it allows us to feel each design project as ours.
2. Let’s talk about the Vivienda LM project
This complete renovation project located in the Barrio de Nervión, in the city of Seville, transforms an old apartment of just over 140 square meters into a new home. The previous distribution based on small and splitted spaces on both sides of a central hallway, is replaced by a new way of inhabiting the space. The common area is seen as a single room that brings together the lobby, the living room and the kitchen. An open and continuous space that, due to its shape, allows a separation of environments between kitchen and living room.In addition, the new home incorporates a new terrace in the kitchen area, which, together with the existing one in the living room, allows to increase visual spaces of the apartment and connect it more directly with the outside. On the other hand, the private rooms, such as the main bedroom and the two secondary bedrooms, are distributed more generously.
3. What were the design needs for this residential project?
Customer’s needs concerned renovation of the house about the distribution of the spaces and a more contemporary enviroments and materials selection. A large room for living room and integrated kitchen, a master bedroom suite, and two more bedrooms with work area. The goal was to create a space where the serenity and warmth of the materials were the main characters of the environment.
