The main objective of this new interior design project in Barcelona was to enlarge each and every room in the house. In order to achieve this, we consciously worked on the principles of open architecture, always taking into account the improvement of natural light penetrations in the house.
To design the living area, located next to the only entrance of natural light in this space, we created a complete custom-made unit which contains the television, a library and a base unit located behind the sofa and the window, in mate lacquered melamine finishes.
The sofa with built-in side table is a Molins Design upholstered in Güell Lamadrid fabric. The large rug by Papiol, which covers both the living room and dining room areas, plays a very important role in chromatic terms, as it provides a note of color that contrasts with the rest of the elements. The table lamp located in the extension of the sofa is a Brokis design and the lithographs are the work of Barcelona artist Joan Pere Viladecans.
Architecture and interior design project in a Barcelona apartment
How to extend a house without neglecting its architecture and interior design?
In this renovation project, our architects and decorators carried out a complete work in terms of interior architecture. We are talking about a very complex proposal, which includes the room design a 90 m2 flat in Mandri street in Barcelona.
In the briefing received from the owners, a young couple without children, we were asked to create an open-plan and 100% functional spaces, following the guidelines of the open space concept. For this reason, we decided to open up the kitchen to the rest of the living room area, as if it were a loft-style flat.
"The hallway unit has a double function: radiator cover and auxiliary storage".
To create the entrance hall, we designed a custom-made piece of furniture in white lacquered oak wood, which serves as a covering for the radiator and as a supporting storage piece.
The hanging lamp is a design by Bover and the stool was upholstered by our team with James Malone fabric.
All the kitchen furniture was designed entirely by our interior design studio, with the aim of achieving impeccable efficiency and functionality in a compressed open space.
The worktop, the splash back and the sink are also designed by Molins in Silestone’s Tao porcelain. The Prata Nero porcelain floor by Mutina was chosen as an element that adds originality to the whole.
For the courtesy toilet, which is accessed from the entrance hall, we decided to install a small piece of furniture that supports the bathroom sink in a circular shape, in a space characterized by the use of small-format tiles in gray tones.
With the aim of further expanding the spaces of this home, two small bedrooms located in the night area were also transformed to integrate them and turn them into spaces with a generous dressing room and a bathroom area adjacent to each bedroom.
The headboard in the master bedroom is a Molins design, upholstered in Güell Lamadrid fabric, as is the set of bedside tables and chest of drawers, located opposite the bed, made in a mate lacquered finish.
The suspended lamps that complement the space are the Jazz model by Vibia.
For the suite, we chose to create a bedroom design with bathroom and dressing room. The important thing about architecture and interior design, at this point, was the total use of space. In addition to extending it to the maximum, to make it much more functional.
In front of the dressing room, we find the bathroom that corresponds to the master bedroom, for which we custom designed a cabinet under the sink and mirror in mate lacquered finish.
The pavement is a large format porcelain by Bera & Beren. The cladding of the walls is the same model as the one chosen for the courtesy toilet, by the firm Cinza.
