BARCELONA - SPAIN
The challenge of this Barcelona apartment renovation resides in finding the balance between the existing and the new. It is essential to recover and reevaluate the features of the original apartment, while getting rid of any element that distracts the vision and compresses the perception of space. The space must be spacious and clear.
The project diffuses the central corridor, a typical Eixample feature with abundant doors and hallways, in order to merge the space around a new central piece of furniture. Such central element is used as a divider between public and private areas and develops along the length of the apartment. Simultaneously, it hosts the storage needs of the apartment while organizing and distributing the floor in three different areas.
