Apartment in the Sant Antoni Neighbourhood (Barcelona)
The original layout of the apartment in a 1980’s building was sub-divided into many small rooms and corridors to access them.
The client wanted a space that was open, bright and textured where he could cook and entertain whilst enjoying the view through the balcony doors towards the mountain.
All interior walls were demolished and three free-standing cupboards that house wardrobes, storage and the kitchen cupboards and appliances were strategically placed to organise the apartment.
Doors of the same material slide to close off the spaces when necessary, but are hidden within the cupboards when open.
The materials used are recycled timber cladding for cupboards and floors, external walls and ceilings are stripped of old plaster as far as the structural fabric which is then painted with many layers of white paint to soften the surfaces. Large format black slate clads the surfaces of the walk-in shower. Black granite is used for the kitchen work surfaces.
