In refurbishing an apartment in Toledo, Spain—comprised of 6 small rooms and dark corridors—Romero Vallejo Architects sought to create a more seamless, light-infused space without changing the apartment’s essential layout. Carpeting, it turned out became a central device.

Custom carpeting, in a range of decorative patterns that resemble Moorish tile, was used throughout the apartment, its carefully planned ornamental color scheme offsetting the linear white furnishings and overall neutral tones of the renovation. The different patterns also presented the opportunity to make visual delineations across both closed and open spaces, while simultaneously integrating the separate areas into a harmonious whole.

Says, the architect, “Whilst the size, type and color of the decorative floor tiles correspond to the scale and identity of each room, the layout works as both a sequence of individual units as well as a singular, continuous space.”
