Accustomed to living in an apartment, Marcela Salzberg I saw the possibility of improving every meter of this PH in Paternal, which was in terrible condition, but had a good location, a terrace and spaces that could be used. She moved in with her husband, Fernando Judzon, when they were still dating and, at that time, they only did some cosmetic work that did not last long. With enthusiasm intact, faced a new reform in which they rethought the distribution of the ground floor, added two rooms on the first floor and, higher up, the terrace.

After the birth of their first two children (Ciro, 7, and Fausto, 3), the new structure was too small for them, but when the move seemed inexorable, the opportunity arose to buy the apartment in front and project the spacious and bright house they always wanted without leaving their beloved PH. So, they embarked on a third work, much deeper, in charge of the architect Luciana Casin, with whom they had already worked. The result was a success thanks to the mutual trust, realistic budget planning and perseverance of the couple so as not to deviate from her dream, where Mila, who was born during the reform, also takes place today.

Between dining room and the living, the skylight solves the lack of light so common in townhouses and is one of the attractions of the new house. The concrete column, the skylight and the rods, an attractive way of marking the transition between sectors.

“The rodded volume surrounds the toilet and separates the playroom with a desk on the other side. It is functional and marks the warm and modern style that we were looking for”

The cupboard and the undercounter were those of the kitchen original. They only changed the melamine for the lacquer. They exposed the beam and column that they made as bracing during construction, added wood studs, and incorporated the structure as a sculptural divider.

“We took advantage of the meters gained so that the patio was the core of the house and brought as much light as possible into the interior”

“What I value about each reform we did was having chosen how we wanted the house and verifying that each square meter has its potential: it is a matter of putting desire and creativity into it.”

In a nod to the houses of the past, iron windows with blue glass guards (Herrería Marcelo) were placed to close off the quincho.

By expanding the Terrace, some sectors were exposed or at the same height as the neighboring houses. They resolved the situation with original resources, like this little solarium with split stone, plants and lounge chairs.

what was done

• With the union of two departments, the PH went from 70 to 200m2. During the work, the walls that divided the units were maintained almost to the end.

• They designed a central patio that guarantees light and functions as a lung for the three floors.

• On the ground floor, they created a large integrated environment that contains a kitchen, living room, dining room, playroom and office.

• The wood-clad volume surrounds the toilette and separates the living room from the playroom.

• On the upper floor, they modified Mila’s bedroom and added a patio where the skylight that illuminates the living room is located.

• They kept the main bedroom, which now belongs to the boys, and the bathroom in that sector.

• They built the new master bedroom with dressing room and bathroom en suite.

• On the terrace they built a barbecue area that serves as a studio and workshop for Fernando, who works at home.
