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.
