Poet’s studio transformed into home with Decocer ceramics

In the historic centre of the small Spanish city of Mediterranean tradition, Castellón the studio-workshop of the poet and artist Bernat Artola has been renovated and transformed into a home for a creative couple. The Vitale studio was able to “rescue its roots and tell its story,” designers say, using small-size ceramic pieces from Decocer.

When the interior designers tackled the renovation of the house, it was in its original state, which reportedly allowed them to recover the essence of the original construction while providing an open look and adapted to the needs of modern life.

The result is said to highlight the warm and authentic soul of the space in search of a functional and inspiring home. The interior designers define this work as “Rescuing the poetry of space,” because from within these walls came the verses of the Valencian poet.

The project is said to reflect a commitment to the place, with sustainability and the use of traditional materials from a close proximity, such as Decocer’s small sizes tiles, which are used strategically in several places.

The master bedroom includes a modernist dresser and headboard, framed by a backlit volume clad in traditional small-scale olive green Decocer ceramics. In the bathrooms, the intermediate spaces and on the wall of an elevated outdoor patio, small-size ceramics from the same firm are used. These pieces feature a marked glaze inspired by “traditional and time-honoured” ceramics.

The design reportedly provides multifunctional spaces, minimises passage areas, optimises the available surface and allows natural light to enter. In addition, it is designed to provide calm and well-being to those who live there.

The house is developed around three large cores: the night area, the day area and the outdoor space. The floor plan is an elongated rectangle and has a usable area of almost 80sqm connected to an elevated patio of another 25sqm. Originally the house was subdivided into eight spaces, with only one bathroom and a small kitchen.

The old solid brick that was previously covered by a layer of plaster has been revealed, while the traditional ceilings have been restored to become a prominent element through indirect lighting.
All the doors, as well as the decorative window that separates the living room from the kitchen, are original elements that have been stripped and finished only with natural wax.

Decocer is characterised by its “delicate, elegant, exclusive and timeless ceramic pieces,” which are said to combine the essence and traditional values of traditional ceramics. The company says its products are full of intensity, colour, details, nuances, volumes, shine, textures, reliefs, graphics and unusual shapes.

It specialises in the design and development of small-size pieces, customised to the project and the needs of architecture and interior design professionals, which the company says makes it unique internationally. It also offers a range of sizes, geometries and finishes.

Decocer is present internationally in 20 countries around the world and around 75% of its sales are made to international markets. Its main markets are the USA, the UK, Italy, Belgium, Canada, Australia and Spain. The company says its mission is to continue growing in these markets by positioning itself as the most exclusive option for small-scale and high-end ceramic products.
