The flat is on the first floor of a historic building located 500 meters from the Cathedral of Barcelona in the Born district, very close to the Santa Catarina market.
The home consists of two apartments of 120 m2 unified into a single space. Previously it was used as the offices of a publishing company.
The client entrusted us with a total refurb which was carried out in phases. It should be noted that the building is on a corner and has natural light on two sides as well as an interior patio on the other side of the building where natural light also enters.
The client wanted to combine the original elements of the building such as the wooden beams, “Catalan vaulted ceilings” and wrought iron in the windows with a minimalist aesthetic and modern functionality. The natural wood floors are Kahrs, the aluminium thermal sealed windows have locks incorporated as requested by the client, a gray interior and brown exterior to comply with City of Barcelona regulations.
The end result is a custom-made home in the heart of old Barcelona. The renovation gave an added value to the home of more than 100% of its initial purchase price.
