The design of this family home involved the reconfiguration of an existing apartment on the 5th floor of a medium rise residential building. The concrete structure clad in red brick dates from the 1970s located in the El Fort Pienc neighbourhood which experienced a mini housing-boom during that period. The elements for a bright and airy apartment were all there in the found space but just needed to be slightly adjusted in order to provide the optimum layout for the current design for a contemporary city centre home.
A terracotta tile floor with grey grouting unifies the living areas, bathroom and kitchen. Full width sliding floor to ceiling doors from the living room access a generous balcony accommodated within a set back in the façade with panoramic views over some of Barcelona’s iconic attractions and green spaces. A sleek new kitchen, judicious planting and minimalist detailing with regards to lighting and ironmongery lend the finished space a timeless mid-century modern quality.
