In an elegant building of 1932 in the right Eixample of Barcelona we find Audrey, a spacious, bright and classy apartment that has just been renovated and dress up thanks to the signature Valgreen. In the hands of the architects Joaquín Antón and Esperanza Monleón, and of the interior designer Cotano de Diego, this apartment has that “je ne sais quoi” that can be found in spaces with history and personality with a totally original and modern twist inspired by Art Deco. With ceilings of three and a half meters high, this apartment show us the perfection of noble materials and corners full of charm. The wood, contrasts perfectly with the walls and the verrières, main element of this project, which were designed to endow with a unique elegance.
The elegant atmosphere that this apartment transmits is highlighted by the moldings on the walls and ceiling, subtle details that make this house a unique piece in the heart of Barcelona. The magnificent sliding door that leads to the balcony, the wide windows, and the outer columns print a classic and elegant air in accordance with the project focus. The Valgreen team has respected the original details, renewing them and making them look so spectacular. The elegance also stands out thanks to the contrast of wrought iron and Neolith®in large format in bathrooms and kitchen. The spaces were opened to let light in both the living room and the dining room making the rooms connect harmoniously with each other A great uniqueness of the design of this apartment is the new distribution, that contemplates the flexible use of the family room that can be added so much as part of the dining room, as of the main room.
Without a doubt, this apartment has a wonderful potential that the team of design has been able to increase. The secret of Audrey's interior design is having been able to change the textures, materials and colors maintaining their harmony. The functionality of each space depends on who lives in the apartment. Do you prefer a room to be or a majestic main room? Sliding doors make that you can take advantage of any corner and give way to a more social space open them or that a quiet place appears when closing them. For this project a contemporary interpretation of the style has been made neoclassical and art deco, very close to modernism, mixing them to Get the perfect cocktail.
And that special essence, is given by these verrières, designed with care in an attack of creativity and ingenuity especially for this flat. Most of they are placed in the main distributor, a step that guides the rest of the rooms, including the kitchen and the small office. For the realization of the verrières, glass and iron were used, taking as reference the light screens of Frank Lloyd Wright, master of architecture of the twentieth century.
Thought to the millimeter, in Audrey every corner is used to give a useful functionality and new to things always taking advantage of natural light and letting it pass thanks to the glass and the composition of the interior design.
