An architect incorporating small but important details, such as tiling or molding, within a designed space is like a stylist accessorizing an outfit. The touches ought to be tasteful and subtle, but powerful enough to elevate the original. For the interiors of Casa Reais, Concheiro de Montard chose three unique yet thematically cohesive touches to enhance the airiness of the newly renovated home in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. A Galician stone hearth frames the corner of a room, creating without the necessity of walls an intimate setting. A set of vertical wooden slates offset a gallery that faces the five glazed panels, through which sunlight casts a natural spotlight. Old tiling is transformed into a patterned mosaic that demarcates the kitchen space. Endearingly referred to as objects trouvés – found objects – these accents not only breathe life into a minimalist design but also preserve the essence of the original space.
