Studio CaSA proposes white everywhere – The White Retreat, Sitges, Spain

Studio CaSA proposes white everywhere - The White Retreat, Sitges, Spain (1)

The renovation of this small apartment of 36 square meters, was realized exactly after the solution imagined by the customer. Located in Sitges, Spain, the apartment belongs to a French art historian, professor at the the Sorbonne University. He wanted a holiday apartment and turned to the architecture studio CaSA (Matteo Colombo and Andrea Serboli) in order to implement his ideas regarding the renovation of his property. The apartment – The White Retreat – located in a coastal city, very close to the beach, is completely introverted having view only to an interior yard. The lack of views is compensated by peace and light. The client imagined a quiet space, opened, furnished with a few carefully selected objects, works of contemporary art, several books and his records.

The White Retreat

The space is designed of three different blocks: the bathroom/kitchen block, the living/bedroom one and the third, external, the terrace. The last two are separated only by a large window, so that the interior and exterior are connected. The 11 square meters terrace is connected with the interior inclusively through a continuous white floor. The Quaderna table (Superstudio 1970), a piece our client desired to incorporate since the project started, inspired the tiles that clad bathroom/kitchen block. The white matt 3x3cm tiles reproduce the table’s grid and are the only texture allowed in the whole project. The owner wanted a completely white space. Inclusively the sink and taps have been selected to have the mat white color. A very low-budget has required simple and inexpensive solutions, resulting in a quiet place suitable for introspection and flooded with light. [Via Studio CaSA – photos by Roberto Ruiz]
