Holiday Home in La Barceloneta, a Neighborhood of Barcelona, Spain.
By Magaly • May 30, 2017
Located in the easily recognizable city of Barcelona, more specifically in the neighborhood of La Barceloneta, in Spain, this small apartment has a total area of only 48 square meters, which—despite being relatively small—is sufficient space for a family of two, and more-so when it’s only used as a vacation home.
The renovation was undertaken by architectural firm Egue y Seta, who wanted to remove the walls of the old bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, and hallway spaces in order to create three separate spaces that are visually connected.
In it, the glass openings—at times, very luminous, and at others, very discreet—guarantee the fluid movement of the space itself, in a similar way to the selected coating, which allows a visual connection between the different spaces.
The pieces of furniture and the small gardened cornices have also been a definitive touch to reinforce the sensation of continuity, what with their presence in both spaces, maintaining its chromatic properties and materials on both ends, but modifying each’s purpose. The ceiling, on the other hand—neatly coated for the occasion—shows its beams, as well as the Catalonian-style vaulting of traditional clay blocks. Below this were placed the necessary installations to bathe the walls in light. Decorative lamps were placed over the bed and the dining room table.
