Sometimes, the dream house can be found in unexpected places. In the case of Amy Uy, the perfect property for her and her family was her renovated childhood home. Located in a quiet and peaceful San Juan neighborhood, the dark and gloomy space has now been turned into a warm, comfortable haven.

Two walls completely made of glass now let sunlight in and open up the space. The glass is matched with white ceilings, walls and tiled floors for a clean and fresh look. The space is furnished with an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary pieces – from vintage tables to molded plastic chairs.
