A Historic Spanish Apartment Gets a Suave All-Wood Interior

Architecture firm Carrascal-Blas has transformed this small house, tucked away in the small Spanish town of Bayona, with an immersive and lovingly crafted all-oak interior. While polished concrete, ceramic tile, and white marble are all in the mix, it's the wood that steals the show. The walls host multiple hidden niches, drawers, and cabinets. With these convenient features embedded into the building itself, the architects say they've upgraded this "small house" to a "big piece of furniture." The upper floors also feature skylights, hidden from the street, that reach upwards to frame skyward views. Called lumieiras, they're typical of historic architecture in Galicia, Spain, though we wouldn't mind exporting them to the U.S.
