The apartment had an open plan living room, a bathroom and three bedrooms (out of which two were stacked one above the other and the third was an elevated mezzanine level).
Remodelling the space
The architects had to rethink the whole space for a contemporary family and, in the same time, to make it blend with the medieval streets beyond. So they simply remodelled the space and removed the partition walls.
“The project demonstrates how an interior can be about the city in which it is situated. An homage to Barcelona,” David Kohn said.
The architects maximised the tight and acute floor plan. The tiled floor was made especially for this place (it is resembling the triangular public square nearby) and has 25 colours. The furniture is modern, wooden made with a few design pieces.
Best interior design award
Three years ago, this project was awarded the best interior design at the INSIDE: World Festival of Interiors, for its quality, for combining simplicity with a sense of space.
