Case Study - Cumbres Del Rodeo
This was a great apartment in a beautiful spot with views of the Mediterranean Sea but there were two main problems:
- The clients wanted a third bedroom and
- to use the outdoor terrace all year round.
With their expert eye, the team at ProMas suggested enclosing the balcony with easy to open glass panels and knocking down the walls separating the balcony from the existing living room and bedroom, thus creating one big living space freeing up the small kitchen to become a third bedroom.
The team set to work knocking down walls, removing bathrooms and kitchens and preparing the apartment for the new glass panels which would provide the option of opening up the whole front of the apartment to maximise those lovely views in the warmer weather.
As with many builds, there are specific logistical problems getting materials and fixtures into the apartment. With this one, it was negotiating the single-story underground car park with its myriad of pillars in order to reach the entrance. It meant that lorry loads of materials and equipment had to be shuttled in smaller vans to the entrance. As always, Andy, the boss, is never discouraged by such obstacles, often designing bespoke and creative solutions to overcome such things.
Now this apartment has gained valuable floor space, makes better use of those wonderful views and offers an extra bedroom. It is cosy in the winter and when you want to bring the outside in, the sliding glass panels can be thrown open. We take great satisfaction from turning properties from tolerable into perfectly suited.
Testimonial: I have used ProMas 2 times to renovate my apartment in Puerto Banus. First time in 2012 and the last time in 2019. I have been working on renovating real estates for almost 30 years in Norway and Spain, and have used many craftsmen. ProMas is particularly professional in many areas; The creative and solution-oriented dialogue before the work; The unusually close follow-up during the project where I received weekly updates with pictures of work that had been done, and plans for the coming weeks; And finally a very positive handover and follow-up afterwards – where something always needs to be changed or arranged. On top of this, they are super friendly people and highly professional. I can safely recommend ProMas!
