Portixol House: A Complete Renovation of A Traditional Rowhouse with Bright Interiors

Portixol House 26

Transformed by PMA Studio, Portixol House is a 2018 project situated on a very narrow plot in Portixol, Spain. This 110 m2 traditional rowhouse is renovated completely despite the property’s slender shape. The planning of the project ensures that the house interiors can still receive plenty of light, creating brighter interiors that take advantage of the most of natural light.

The proposed distribution for this house takes full advantage of the most of natural light. This way is done by putting the living room at the end of the ploy near the main house patio. The occupants also can expand their living space outdoors thanks to the large sliding door.

The generous entrance is located in the front area of the property with storage space and a sitting area. This area is flooded with natural light by the entrance door and a window to the patio. The main bedroom is located next to the entrance while the children’s bedroom occupies the area of the narrow space with a glass door opening and a skylight.
