It is a second floor apartment with openings to both sides of the building; on one side you have the street, and this provides the space with plenty of morning sun, and on the other side there is a peaceful interior courtyard, which fills the space with sunlight at midday and in the afternoons.
It has a total surface area of 130m2.
The interior has been totally reformed, with the reform combining the buildings beautiful original modernist elements, with practical and modern additions. The space consists of an entrance hall, two bedrooms with wardrobes and en-suit bathrooms, a balcony overlooking the street, another bedroom/office space, another separate bathroom, a living room dining room, a kitchen with island, a gallery space and a terrace. Classic features such as its mosaic floors, its interior woodwork and windows, and its coffered ceilings remain intact.
Traditional apartment covering the whole floor
This regal apartment can be found in a classic Eixample building in Barcelona. It is an attached building, built in 1910, which has been designed to have just one apartment per floor. The building has a total of six floors, including a commercial floor on ground level and five residential floors above. The building, due to its age, state of preservation and location, has been catalogued in the ' Patrimonio Arquitectonico del Ayuntamiento de Barcelona', the special conservation sector of the Ensanche (as a level B) and also as a level C in the 'Conjunto Especial del Ensanche ', and all of this will further secure its preservation and heritage.
The buildings facade has a simply organized design, with continuity in it impressive vertical lines. All the openings are balconies which have been vertically aligned, with a larger balcony surface area on the lower floors, gradually getting smaller as you go up the building. All of these balconies feature their original forged iron railings and sit strong into the buildings facade, with beautiful decorative corbels surrounding them.
Organizationally speaking, the interiors of each floor have been clearly determined by the supporting walls, which leave each flat with a width of around 7 meters and a length which succeeds 20. This means they have been designed with the main rooms at each end, at each of the buildings openings. In terms of its actual construction characteristics, the load bearing walls are all solid brick with the ceilings being supported by wooden beams - this gives the apartments their traditional 'Catalan Vault' ceilings. These beams have been well preserved and re-treated with a colourless protective varnish, and in the other rooms there are brand new plasterboard ceilings. The space has also maintained many of its beautiful mosaic floor tiles.
The reform was undertaken with the intention of keeping the basic interior layout of the apartment the same, leaving the bedrooms nearer to the buildings main facade where they can benefit from the morning sun, and a large living area and kitchen on the inside of the apartment, so they can benefit from the afternoon light provided by the peaceful interior courtyard. The number of bathrooms has been increased from one to three, leaving two on-suit bathrooms and one main bathroom for the living area. The gallery space has also been opened up, leaving a second balcony for the day time area.
