On the beachfront there is no small house, but this apartment also has a delicious decoration designed so that the whole family and their guests are happy
1. A TERRACE FOR CAMPING
In the heart of the Costa Brava and surrounded by pine trees, this apartment of only 50 square meters has several aces up its sleeve: a superb renovation by the architect Xavier Claravall and the interior designer Sonia Badia (from the Xmasarquitectura studio), it is on the beachfront and it has this terrace where dinners last until dawn.
2. PRIME LOCATION
Reforming this original property from the 70s was not easy: “We talked for hours with the clients and we understood that for them the most important thing was the light and the views of the sea, which is why we gave them priority: from the terrace to the bed in the master bedroom you can see the water”, the interior designer tells us.
3. THE SEA SNEAKS INTO THE HOUSE
Lined with wood and with an almost complete kitchen (laundry room included!), the terrace flows with the living room: when the French doors are open, only the gauze curtains show us where one begins and the other ends.
4. VISUAL CLEANLINESS
In the living room, nothing obstructs the views of the sea, and the Mediterranean character has been enhanced with white walls, details in blue and turquoise, and lots of natural fiber furniture.

5. VERSATILE FURNITURE
The assistants in the living room also have a function on the terrace if necessary. Made of materials typical of outdoor furniture, the armchair and the coffee table can be taken outside in case of visitors.
6. CUSTOMIZED SOLUTIONS
Interior designer Sonia Badia designed most of the home’s furnishings, including the ingenious oak bench and chest of drawers in the dining room, which doubles as seating and storage, as well as steps for the new staircase.
7. CUSTOMIZED SOLUTIONS
But without a doubt our favorite solution is the staircase in the living room, which begins as an oak bench (which is used to sit in the dining room) and continues in white painted iron. “It doesn’t go all the way down because we wanted it to take up as little space as possible,” explains interior designer Sonia Badia. The staircase was necessary because they added a new room for children on the mezzanine.
8. VIEWS ARE EVERYTHING
The interior designer and the architect created this iron and glass partition that separates the living room from the kitchen, but allows whoever is cooking to continue seeing the sea.
SEA VIEWS, AND SEMI-OPEN CONCEPT
But the glass door not only has the power to let the views pass, it also differentiates the spaces without completely separating them, creating a kitchen open to the living room and, consequently, to the terrace and the impressive views.
10. MEDITERRANEAN DIET
“In the kitchen, we put a DM box around the extractor hood, which has its own active filters because there is no smoke outlet, but hey, in a beach house you don’t cook much either and with so many windows it’s easy to ventilate,” the interior designer continues.
