On the duplex’s first floor, we strived to achieve a living and dining room with all possible luxuries. Comfort, functionality and sober chromaticism were the requirements set by our client for one of the home’s busiest places. Also, in this same space we designed a module with modern bookcases for living and dining room.
The space has two large Minotti sofas upholstered by our team with fabric from Designers Guild and two comfortable armchairs that allow us to distribute the seating in a ‘U’ shape.
The living room library with interior melamine shelved modules and exterior with smooth matt lacquered DM doors, niches and backlit shelves custom-made by Molins Design presides over the space with sobriety and elegance.
The coffee table is a design of our team for this project, as a totally personalized and exclusive piece.
With this project, Molins Design has once again overcome a great challenge as far as interior design is concerned. With spectacular sea views, this duplex in Barcelona involved a comprehensive intervention of each and every one of its spaces.
With a two-level layout plan, this house has all the services and amenities that can be asked for in a home of these benefits. The entire house has a domotic system that allows controlling absolutely everything. From the light and appliances, to the piped music.
Our design goal in the interior of this magnificent home was to take advantage of every space and adapt it to the client’s comfort. Likewise, we also worked hard to make natural light one of the protagonists of the space.
For this project we worked on aspects such as the total refurbishment of the spaces, the unification of the kitchen and dining room in the same area, as well as the connection of the two floors of the attic creating a new staircase and redefining the entire perimeter of the terrace.
Originally, in this house, the living room, dining room and kitchen were separated by walls and by eliminating them we managed to design a more luminous, functional and efficient diaphanous environment.
As for the chromatic proposal, it is not a house that stands out for its great colorfulness. In this case, we wanted a sober and discreet chromaticism. Therefore, we opted for the chromatic range of grays. However, given its proximity to the sea, we also added slight blue touches.
For the dining room we custom designed a table with a transparent tempered glass top with two black lacquered iron legs to which we added lacquered chairs upholstered with Bross fabric.
The central isle of this kitchen is used as a work surface and office area, to which we added white stools from Magis.
Also, we created an area with an upholstered bench and decorative cushions made with Jim Thompson fabrics, under the window that protrudes from the facade, in the form of an angle.
The guest toilet is located next to the hall. It stands out for its geometric cladding, in black color by Harmony by Peronda on the suspended cabinet under the sink, with three drawers and lacquered in white, designed by Molins Design, as well as the vertical mirror backlit wall.
The washbasin is a design by The Bath Collection and the mixer tap is a model by Ritmonio.
The suite is a spacious and elegant bedroom with dressing room included, located on the main floor of this fabulous duplex penthouse in Barcelona.
The space available in this room helped us to create a very complete room. We installed a dressing table and different furniture according to the padded wall panels, entirely custom designed by our team of interior designers, in melamine interior and matt lacquered exterior, for the closets, the low console and the corner unit, while for the dressing room isle, equipped with drawers and niches, we chose a polished gloss finish.
Instead of the traditional family bathroom en suite, we decided to design two complete independent bathrooms for each of the couple members, one equipped with a bathtub and the other with a large shower.
The house has 4 bathrooms, one for each member of the household. For the renovation of each of them we worked with straight and simple lines, without major complications. The goal was to create elegant bathrooms, without great extravagance. For this, light tones were used, with pieces that mimic marble. But, also, mirrors were used to increase the feeling of space, as well as the entry of natural light through the windows.
Following this overview of the Cormar Duplex, we reach the house’s top floor.
Previously it was a poorly exploited area and was simply used as a sauna and a small gym. Currently, this second floor joins two elegant bedrooms, which could be considered designer suites. Both of them, located on the sides of the house, have a special lighting due to its location and its characteristic skylights.
The son’s bathroom is highlighted by an original hexagonal, three-dimensional wall covering by Natucer on the wall of the suspended bathroom cabinet with white countertop and single-lever faucet in satin black chrome finish by Ritmonio.
To design the bedroom of the owners’ daughter we chose the same chromatic range as the one applied in the rest of the house, in gray tones and blue details.
We designed a sofa and headboard with capitonné made with fabric from Les Créations de la Maison and we projected a piece of furniture with desk, drawers and niches custom-made by our studio.
Finally, we reveal the laundry area, also located on the second floor.
An extremely functional piece, for which we custom-designed all the furniture, including the ironing board and clotheslines. The pavement base reproduces the characteristic modernist hydraulic tiles, manufactured by Inalco, and the walls are covered with Equipe porcelain tiles.
