Catalan Design Details In A Modern Barcelona Apartment
Borrowing the name of its location, the Gothic Quarter Apartment designed by YLAB Architects is located in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, Spain. Surprising the watcher with an intense usage of contemporary materials and modern furniture things, the interiors of this 130 square meter apartment in the heart of the city were as of late renovated. The transformation can be clearly found in all the details, however there are a few components that maintain the recollections of another era. Some key components were kept, similar to the traditional Catalan ceilings showing off wooden beams and vaulted arches, and the exterior wooden shades. Arched openings make the association between the progression of splendid, liberal spaces that shape the apartment’s floor plan.
Spaces were reconstructed to offer the young inhabitants private, social and work spaces: starting with the entrance hall and going through the kitchen and living room, the bedroom suite and bathroom can be reached. Hand-assembled tinted pine wood slats give the ceiling and walls a unique look, while the simple geometry of the furniture integrates perfectly in the new space. Maybe the warm wood finishes is the reason to love these interiors, or maybe it’s the ivory white concrete floors – all I know is all of you will have a good reason to consider this particular apartment – located behind Barcelona’s City Hall – a fabulous living space.
