The project presents the renovation of a small apartment in a building of 1916 located in the old town of Barcelona. The two windows of the façade are the only ones able to use for ventilation and natural illumination.
We realized that the structure walls of the building are in the perimeter of the apartment, which enabled us demolish all the interior partitions resulting in a diaphanous space. The dwelling is then considered as a loft, we simplified the new distribution to obtain a large and open space being able to enjoy the light and ventilation of the two windows in the facade.
A big wooden wall can be fold creating a flexible limit that alows the user to separate the two main areas of the apartment.
Materiality of old and new elements is exposed, the different painting and texture combine to differentiate spaces annd give a warm and industrial atmosphere.
