Radiant attic apartment transformed in Spain

This stunning attic apartment spotted on Nuevo Estilo is located in the old city of Bilbao, Spain, rehabilitated by interior designer Mikel Larrinaga. The home is situated in a neoclassical building with an incredible terrace oasis with views, a luxury in the center of the city. Although the interior left much to be desired, with its compartmentalized spaces, obsolete finishes and old installations, Mikel had a great vision of the future that the home offered. One of the fundamental objectives was to orient the home out towards the terrace, creating a nice aesthetic. After applying an in-depth rehabilitation, the old floor has become an apartment filled with light, updated interiors and plenty of comfort.

During the reformation, the designer discovered an element of surprise while demolishing the false ceiling and revealing a double height, taking advantage of the space and turning it into a loft. He retained part of the structure and created a network of iron and wood on which rests the bedroom. Some of the constructive elements were left exposed, such as a brick wall and wood beams. The interiors were painted white to create brightness and oak flooring was used throughout except for the bathroom. The home is a mix of flea market and vintage finds merging with chairs of industrial origin and hints of design, with the dressing of personal details, souvenirs and artworks.
