Surely more than one must have wondered sometime: is it possible to join two adjoining houses? There are many cases in which you evaluate buying the next floor with the idea of being able to join them to get a bigger house. The truth is that to be able to do so, in addition to owning both houses, we must take into account a series of legal and technical issues. It’s not a matter of just pulling down a wall and that’s it. In this article we invite you to know the successful case of two contiguous dwellings together.
For make a comprehensive reform of such magnitude, in addition to having the approval of the municipality and all legal issues, it is important hire the services of an experienced company that is in charge of evaluating the technical part and, given the conditions, carry out the work. We loved this project of Synchro, a company in Barcelona specialized in not only reforms of all kinds, but also in interior design and decoration. It is two contiguous floors on the same floor, united. The result is an apartment of 72 m2, with enough space for a couple with a couple with a child.
Two adjoining houses joined: before and after
Before starting the tour, we find it interesting to show you the before and after this integral reform. The apartment is located in the Poblenou neighborhood, in Barcelona, after obtaining permission to work in the Barcelona City Council, the services of BySincro.com, and these two small apartments, ended up forming a single house much larger and more functional, which highlights not only the very good distribution of the spaces but also the excellent choice of furniture and all the decor in general.
Semi open kitchen to the living room
Some people prefer open kitchens, while others prefer them closed. In this case we find a very interesting solution: a semi-open kitchen. How did they do it? With a fairly wide sliding door, with two leaves. Then, depending on the need and each moment, it is possible to enjoy a closed kitchen or open to the room.
The kitchen is large enough to fit a small table that serves as a breakfast or casual dining room. The distribution of the kitchen furniture is the “L”, where you can appreciate the famous triangle working in the kitchen of which we have spoken in another article. And special mention deserves the ceramic floor that imitates the hydraulic tiles, which gives it a special touch, getting an interesting contrast of styles, between the modern white kitchen furniture and the vintage style floor.
A spacious dining room in the middle of the house
After the entrance, once entering this house, we can see a cozy dining room, where the white of the walls and the wooden floor abounds. As you can see, this stay is in the middle. All other dependencies are connected to this space. Perhaps this is the greatest achievement of two contiguous dwellings together, having achieved a common space so broad and luminous. We loved the detail of the small pictures we see on the TV area, made with pieces of the original hydraulic floor of the house.
