This 55 m² flat is a sign that finding a nice house to rent is possible. When Egue and Seta received this challenge they did not hesitate: it was possible! Convert a flat into a home that suits the tastes of future tenants, those who appreciate day-to-day functionality but also decoration and design.
It was about reforming a flat without making a very high investment and decorating it with basic pieces that adapted to each story. It could be called low cost reform, although with finishes and a style that can be presumed.
A Coruña for RentIt is the result of this study, which has created an urban and youth apartment, with a controlled investment for the owners (the Pérez family).
It is located on the ground floor of a building, despite which it has a lot of light (miraculous?). The house is directly accessible to the day area, a common space (thanks to the demolition of partitions) for the living room, The kitchen and the dining room. It is the coverings and furniture that visually delimit the environments. And from here you can access the rest area and the bathroom of the house.
