Attitude for destruction

There is something absolutely exciting about renovating an apartment...the thrill of the first knock on the wall, bricks falling down, the occasional chunk of old plaster hitting the floor...Dust, old pipes, wood floor, tiles, old cabinets...The old stuff is gone.

Walls falling down give place to new rooms. It is not a living room next to a dining room next to a library way. Now we have this huge space, flooded with we can see the four french doors leading to this amazing garden...a classical building from the 40's, where the owners (a young couple) trustred us with the mission of converting the ground floor apartment into something new and really special.

Right now it is only destruction, but soon we will have a new kitchen, a big bathroom and THAT walking closet that you only see on films. And a garden for Olga, the black lab.


  1. Couldn´t face it! Apartment shopping at the time, here there and everywhere and the mere thought of having to pull down walls terrifies me! ha! I´ll have to trust you guys with the extreme make over. Possible going for old PH´s in Villa Crespo, Chacalermo or Abasto...

  2. Dear Charlotte, don't be tear down a few walls here and there make a huge difference!
    PH's are great...usually you need to renovate kitchen and bathroom...but definitely worth the hassle of construction.
