Building a new studio in the heart of Botánico.

The countdown to open the studio has started, so I hope the renovation work meets the deadline I've given to myself. You might think refurbishing an architect's studio by an architect should be a piece of cake for an architect (me), but things are not that straightforward in Valencia. Contractors somehow struggle to deliver on the promised date here.

My real excitement is what is on the drawing board so far—deciding colours to paint, designing funky storage, or doors that can fold more than 180 degrees and slide back to disappear behind the walls. I have endless ideas until the grand total in the Excel spreadsheet is automatically refreshed, and then I realise that they can be costly. You can view the final and affordable version once the studio is open.

Have a happy countdown, everyone! Friends, neighbours and blog subscription members are welcome to the Studio Opening. The date and time will be confirmed.

15 days to go.
