Contemporary Gothic Quarter Apartment, Barcelona
According to the architects: “The luxury Spanish apartment comes with a terrace and can be found right in the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, in a catalogued property located behind the City Hall.
The original area is composed of various of bright and spacious rooms connected by large arched openings, with balconies along the façade and an inner courtyard. Original features include such as traditional Catalan ceilings with wooden beams and vaulted arches, as well wooden shutters on the exterior.
“The contemporary Spanish property is based on a reinterpretation of the existing spatial structure of different rooms with differentiated uses and atmospheres, redefining the assigned uses and functions and creating new spatial and visual connections without allowing the traditional elements to predominate. The aim is to create a peaceful environment which allows its young owner privacy and a work place, while creating a social meeting place for meals and parties.”
