The seggregation between day and night areas was clearly defined at all times.
However, the big handicap to overcome was in the day area, where the living room was concentrated in a very narrow area with very limited space.
To solve this problem, we decided to place the furniture with the greatest visual weight on one of the sides, while on the opposite side we opted for the exclusive design of a very light open bookcase, to prevent the space from looking too saturated.
The sofa is a design by Molins upholstered with red Güell Lamadrid fabric, the coffee tables are the Drop Tables model by White Label Living and the rug is a design by J&T Alfombras, in 100% natural jute.
Although its original state had many flaws, its current owners quickly fell in love with this penthouse with terrace, due to its great potential and location, compared to other homes in the area.
With our intervention we went on to refurbish a magnificent penthouse in the heart of the Sarrià neighbourhood (Barcelona), to create a new, much more familiar atmosphere.
One of the main objectives in this project was to obtain a more efficient interior design and space distribution.
We also worked consciously to make the most out of the generous presence of natural light that penetrated the main rooms, making it the absolute focal point of these spaces.
In the choice of materials for the transformation of the house, the selected flooring type was a turning point that determined the rest of the interior design.
Although the owners of this penthouse in Barcelona were great lovers of parquet, they finally decided to opt for a large porcelain floor tile from Living Ceramics.
Thanks to its installation, we were able to bring uniformity and visual amplitude to the whole house, both indoors and outdoors. In the same way, we avoided cuts or changes in the floor that would otherwise have appeared.
The dining table is a design by our interior design studio, with iron legs and an oak wood top, whilst the suspended lamps are the PH5 model in black by Louis Poulsen.
Dining space and kitchen sketch
Originally, the kitchen was a closed and independent space and due to the family’s love for cooking and friends gatherings at home, we decided to open it up to the living and dining room, using a bar as a separating element.
In this way we located a new natural corner for aperitifs and/or social interaction prior to any lunch or dinner.
The chosen colour for the design of the kitchen furniture, custom-made by Molins Design, in black gloss-lacquered finish, brings sophistication and personality to the whole day area of this Barcelona penthouse.
For the wooden bar area we chose Ann black stools by Ziru.
In the night area, the second largest room in the house was designed for the youngest member of the family.
To create this space, we custom-designed a children’s bed with a headboard in the shape of a house with a fireplace.
The rest of the pieces installed add a fun and functional touch to a space in which the sleeping area is shared with the playing and reading area.
