Apartment renewal

COMA Arquitectura as Architects

The complete renewal of a small apartment in the top floor of an old 60’s building in Barcelona’s city center.. The apartment is surrounded by small opened terraces and it has also a  top floor with a big solarium facing south.

The main idea about the renovation is to locate a floating big piece of furniture that acts as a Kitchen but also as a central dining table. Around this space, life and light is everywhere. There is a direct acces to small terrace and a big opening facing south. This big opening allows to have great views over Montjuich mountain and a local inner Typical Eixample Patio.

In the terraces we placed a big canopy in order to avoid the sun in the outer dining zone and there is a metallic staircase that leads to the upper solarium.

All the materials used in the renewal were plain terracotta tiles, wood floor pavement and white plaster on the walls. The atmosphere is clean and we placed spot lighting in almost every surface.

All the bath zones and terraces are finished with the same red terracotta typical catalan tile and the water zones were built with  custom made inox washbasins. In this renewal all the doors are hidden sliding doors and we’ve taken care of all the details in order to  comply with a high standard finishes.

The result is a rejuvenated apartment, with no interventions out of tune, only with the aim to highlight the original qualities and the location of the house. The apartment can be used and enjoyed comfortably for the next decades with impressive views over the city.
