Barcelona is a city that enjoys privileged weather conditions for a large part of the year, which is why we opted for the creation of different atmospheres on this fabulous 70 m2 terrace: a swimming pool, a lounge and outdoor dining room and a kitchen, which provides exclusive service to this outdoor area.
Exterior design of a terrace in the Eixample district of Barcelona
Having a 70 m2 terrace in the heart of Barcelona’s Eixample district is a real privilege that deserves a great intervention.
To achieve this, the owner couple contacted Molins Design, so that we could design a well-used outdoor space, with all the comforts and features they required.
After analysing the available surface area and its particular morphology, we proposed a space in which to install a swimming pool, a kitchen and an outdoor living-dining room, the perfect place to enjoy with family and friends on an extraordinary terrace, with priceless views of the city.
Choosing top quality materials and structural elements became one of the main challenges of this project.
First of all, for the pavement of the entire terrace we chose a synthetic resin exterior flooring that we had made to measure with steps and access benches to the pool area.
Secondly, we also designed the metal structures for the placement of the three pergolas that provide the necessary shade in the three main areas of the space. In addition, the veranda awnings are roller shutters and are motorized with the Somfy system.
Finally, the perimeter fence that provides privacy and security to the terrace is made of double braided vegetable resin.
Outdoor living area
To create the fabulous outdoor lounge we chose furniture from the prestigious Alicante-based outdoor furniture company Point.
The three-seater sofa is the Long Island model, while the armchairs, the coffee table and the circular side table are part of the Weave collection, made of aluminium and rope, an aesthetic that combines design, comfort and warmth in a single concept.
In order to enjoy this space even during the coldest months of the year, we decided to install Pure radiant heaters by Hetscope.
We placed the outdoor dining area next to the summer lounge, under the pergola, and chose to design it with a dining table from the Summer collection with a white porcelain top and a cream-coloured structure, together with a set of chairs from the Weave collection by Point.
Instead of the traditional lamp suspended over the dining table, we decided to add a floor lamp from Kettal.
The planters selected for this project are our own design, some in in stainless steel and others in black cement.
Outdoor kitchen sketch
Thanks to the kitchen on this terrace, the property can enjoy a more functional space near the outdoor dining area. To achieve this, we designed a set of outdoor furniture with modules made of compact anthracite gray with aluminum doors and a worktop in bush-hammered Moon Gris porcelain by Inalco.
This area is complemented with a special size barbecue in painted stainless steel by Artkat.
