Before and after: a house in an old blanket factory in Segovia

Casa Alejandra is the name of this housing that has been built on the remains of an old blanket factory from a town in Segovia. In the reform its structure has been enhanced, its wonderful stone walls have been cleaned and shown and the majesty of its spaciousness has been respected to turn the space into a comfortable place to live.

Wood and stone have a great role throughout the house. The stone mainly in the floor and in the walls, the wood in the columns and in the beams of the ceilings, many of them totally renewed, but always respecting the original form and style of the building.

The choice of furniture for a home of these characteristics is complicated in all rooms but in particular it is in the kitchen. In this case the kitchen has been made by the company Ceisa Segovia with Neff, AEG and Siemens appliances. Within such a unique structure, getting the furniture style right is essential. After shuffling the possible options, we finally opted for a contemporary style with very simple lines that contrasts with the strength of walls and ceilings.

The preparation area has been divided into two islands, one dedicated to cooking and another to washing and food preparation. In this way work flows and several people can work at the same time in comfort. The column area integrates the appliances and an additional pantry area. The furniture doors are in one piece, very functional and with a very pure and clean aesthetic.

The steel countertops They have a strong professional character and are perfect for a kitchen that is designed for foodies who enjoy cooking. In the search for simplicity and aesthetic cleanliness eliminate unnecessary items, such as door handles, for example.

The color white furniture fronts contrasts with the darkness of the stone and the naturalness of the wood, but between the three tones a good aesthetic balance is achieved. The stone brings majesty, the white reflects the light of the space and the wood makes it more friendly and warm, different materials and colors that complement each other.

The space in which the kitchen is located is open as we can see in the images of this article. The stairs to access the upper floor of the house act, in a way, as space separators on this floor where the common spaces are located. There is room for everything, to cook, to eat, to rest or to work, any activity can find a place in a space as wide as this.

On the same floor as the kitchen is also the living room. For the living room the choice of colors is radically different that of the kitchen, here we have opted for the dark tones that instead of contrasting with the stone almost camouflaged with it. Only some touches in intense tones such as red, stand out on the gray background.

Natural light has great importance in the whole of this house, the stone is dark, but the absence of partitions and glass railings on the stairs They help the natural light that enters through the windows and from the top, circulates freely and is reflected throughout the house.

To those of us accustomed to living in small urban apartments With painted or wallpaper walls, it can make us a little strange to see a house like this. It is really different from what is understood by a conventional house, although it is now very well equipped in its environments, its structure and its distribution of wide and open spaces is really unique.

When designers no longer know that inventing sometimes gives them a taste of strange things, lately for example it is usual to mix styles in the same piece of furniture, and sometimes it is not bad, but other times the result is quite ugly, as in the case of This chair, at least for my taste, is called Dichotomy Chair and is a design by Jean-Damien Lury.

You will like them more or less, you could find them a place in your house or not, but it is impossible that these furniture with Acrila smileys, do not start a smile. I do not know exactly when the smileys or emoticons entered our lives, I remember the first I think in the late eighties in some sheets that we used as ornaments in our clothes, but something I do know and they have arrived to stay.
