A modernist apartment in a building from 1880
The apartment is one the 'primera planta' of the building, which is really the second floor. The building itself is typical of those in Barcelona's Eixample, built around the end of the century, when city planers started to expand Barcelona in what was called the 'Ensanche' or city 'widening', and the inner city walls were removed. Due to the date it was built and its characteristics, the building has been catalogued in the Conservation Sector of Eixample, and is also catalogued as level 1 in the 'Ayuntamiento de Barcelona', which will further ensure its upkeep and maintenance.
The building has six floors, with a commercial main floor and five residential floors above. The communal staircase, made of marble, connects the buildings 10 apartments. The facade spans across roughly 34 meters. It has a classical, well-organised composition, with vertically aligned openings with even spaces between them. The first floor features a number of large windows, and the rest of the floors all have balconies. All the higher openings and balconies on the buildings facade come with traditional Eixample shutters.
Constructively, the building complies with works of the nineteenth century architectural canon, featuring many of its typical characteristics such as Catalan vault ceilings.
The buildings location, on the corner of two major streets, means it receives plenty of natural light from noon until the late afternoon, which floods into the apartments living room, dining room, and main bedroom. The flat also receives natural light from the interior courtyard, illuminating the bathroom, laundry room, study and other large bedroom in the back of the house.
