For the renovation of this old apartment in the traditional eixample neighbourhood of Barcelona we wanted to preserve the maximum of original elements of Catalan architecture. At the same time transform the space into a modern and renewed atmosphere. The main action taken was a selective ‘defoliation’ of all the overlapping layers to reach the traditional building elements. The distribution is simplified to obtain bigger spaces and more luminous.

The new materials included, though clearly contemporary, discuss harmoniously with the old to maintain the perception of unity and timeless.

We designed interior boundaries to create different spaces with large openings placed to diffuse the sense of confinement. Based on a sliding door system, we can transform the space to provide the necessary privacy, greater intimacy or, expand the space.

A single table in the apartment of 3.10 meters long gathers all the activities of the apartment, acting as a study table, dining table, place connected with certain tasks in the kitchen, etc. The bench of 5.20 meters along the wall, functions as seating, shelf and storage space.
