Welcome to our gallery focusing on the startling Curuna Flat, a home designed by A-cero.
This project was the complete renovation of a historic apartment in northern Spain, in a building that’s an architectural landmark.
The 140 square meter property kept the essence of its original layout with some modern updates and adaptations.
The first thing people see when approaching is the traditional exterior wood joinery, helping maintain the classical facade of the house as it appears among its similarly styled neighbors. The existing granite and wood floors were also meticulously restored.
The home is entered via a large hall, introducing a bold sense of spaciousness and distributing space toward the various areas that comprise the home. This area opens directly into the living and dining room, with a four way intersection leading to the bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchen, and more.
The large living and dining room area sits in an open plan design, with neutral whites and grey tones combining for a coherent, modern look. Custom sofas, tea tables, curtains, and area rug help tie everything together.
Retro styled circular wall lamps in alabaster stone were custom designed by A-cero as well. The dining area fits a generously sized table for 8 in lacquered black and white wood, surrounded by Klee chairs, also by A-cero.
The practically minded kitchen was designed to be connected with the rest of the home, emphasizing space and ambient light for a warm, inviting effect. The lamp here is a custom design made exclusively for this space, with its attendant sculptural forms and LED lighting.
The master bedroom is spacious and includes a relaxing sitting area. The bed forms part of a joint design that composes a structure, wrapping the roof and integrated nightstands. It’s all custom designed by A-cero, including the magma headboard, painted by Joaquín Torres and Rafael Llamazares.
The entire home exudes a sense of thoughtful luxury with timeless appeal.

Here we see the vast open plan living and dining room, with sleek whites and greys warmed by subtle touches of vanilla. Sharp angles and high contrast design informs the look of the home.
The home design makes use of sharply defined features, sleek surfaces, and high contrast colors to evoke a striking mood. The neutral whites and beige tones help unify the disparate elements.
The kitchen brings a sense of warmth and timelessness with its sleek natural wood paneling, a great contrast to the cool look seen elsewhere in the home. Large format granite tile flooring anchors the space in luxurious elegance.
Pristine white is used here as both backsplash and countertop, to bold effect. This creates a casual brightness in the kitchen, further defining it against the rest of the home.
The master bedroom features one of the most striking elements in the home, with a massive feature wall that curves into bedside tables as well as the ceiling above. This frames the bed in glossy, bold whites in direct contrast to the dark wood flooring.
On the glossy feature wall, we see the large painting by Joaquín Torres and Rafael Llamazares. Subtle artwork like this brings a sense of lived-in history to modern designs.
On the opposite side of the massive bedroom, we see the sitting area. Comprising a pair of angular chaise lounges, this space also boasts a futuristic vanity and triangular mirror.
Here’s a look at a childrens’ bedroom in the home, differentiated from the master bedroom by the bold use of rainbow colors. A writing desk is built-in to the wall in angular grey tones, with a similarly shaped natural wood floating shelf above.
Here’s a guest bedroom in the home, splitting the color difference between the previously featured rooms with a splash of subtle coloring, courtesy of accent pillows and artwork on the wall.
This bathroom features a floating vanity in beige and white, with a simple frameless mirror positioned along the pristine white wall above.
Here’s a look at the large entry hall, which introduces the dominant colors of the home as well as opening up to the most important social areas directly.
