Natural light and good layout take centre stage at this home fitted entirely with TRES tapware11/2020
This infill building home in Terrassa came with the typical problems of this type of construction: narrow space and insufficient entry of natural light. Atiko Houses undersigns this new single-family home and has used architecture to help solve these drawbacks.
The staircase is the epicentre of the home, above which a skylight has been built to spread light into all the rooms. The staircase is also designed to allow for the installation of a lift should the owners require one, demonstrating that architecture should anticipate all possible circumstances and be mindful of future needs.
A spacious kitchen designed to make the most of all its capabilities
The kitchen is integrated into the lounge, and the dining table is used to connect the two spaces. The wooden surface top contrasts with the white furnishings and combines perfectly with the brick wall. The dark sink brings out the chrome tapware, which in this case is a TRES kitchen tap with extensible spout, perfect for this project as the spout can extend by up to 70 cm, widening the work area and taking advantage of the capabilities of this large kitchen.
The tapware sets the mood in the bathrooms
This project is a clear example of how tapware can shape the decorating style. One of the bathrooms in the house has a wooden piece of furniture with a black iron frame which combines with two bowl-type washbasins. The addition of two concealed taps from the clasic-tres series, with handles separate from the spout and finished in old brass, converts an industrial-style context into a very cosy spot.
Concealed tapware has also been chosen for the shower, more specifically a Mono-Term shower kit by TRES, with a Ø 250 mm shower head and hand shower with five functions. The advantage of this model of single-lever mixer tap is that it is very practical, with capabilities similar to those of a thermostatic tap.
The study exclusive washbasin tap chosen to equip the second lavatory in the house is also concealed in the wall so that the washing area feels more spacious.
