Barcelona-based mostly agency YLAB Arquitectos designed the interiors of this 1,four hundred-sq.-foot condominium within the coronary heart of Barcelona’s Gothic quarter. The younger proprietor requested a peaceable setting for private use, however one which could possibly be simply reworked right into a social gathering area. The inside is pared down, however heat, because of the slatted wooden paneling. It’s properly-designed, however very snug; undoubtedly not a brag-about showplace. It appears like a spot you’ll be able to actually stay in.
The ceiling and longitudinal wall of the kitchen and eating room, which begins within the entrance vestibule, are paneled with tinted pine wooden slats that have been assembled by hand.
The low kitchen items are completed, together with the eating desk, in bronze metallic panel. The pendant inside is completed in gold leaf and Swarovski crystals, and provides off a metallic reflection; an ideal distinction to the nice and cozy wooden. On the again, a division of darkish gray glass separates a small visitor bed room from the remainder of the area.
There’s a big lid alongside the counter permits for additional prep or serving area.
The lounge opens to a 215-sq.-foot terrace.
The lounge furnishings is modular and free-standing so it may be configured in response to the event. As for the structure, unique options are maintained, comparable to conventional Catalan ceilings with picket beams and vaulted arches, in addition to exterior carpentry with picket shutters.
An arched opening results in the bed room, which could be closed off with a pocket door.
The main bedroom is straightforward (love that headboard!). It opens out onto a balcony by way of French doorways with the shutters which might be so very European.
Since that is the one toilet, the doorways have been re-outlined in order that it could possibly be accessed from the hall by the bed room and the lounge. The bathtub is plopped in the midst of the room, with the cloudy glass wall of the bathe/rest room space as a backdrop. Love the tap which rises from the ground.
That’s an fascinating free standing sink; the oval form and tap echo these of the bathtub. The partitions are paneled solely in phenolic board with a excessive-gloss end. They conceal storage and perimeter led lighting.
