FLAT IN THE EIXAMPLE
Refurbishment of a flat in Barcelona
The premise for this flat was to move away from stereotypes and create an austere and cosmopolitan space for a contemporary dandy.
The structure of corridors organizes the space in strips of program that cross diagonally towards the views to the block garden oriented to the west. It is sought that the light crosses all the space, for that reason a single support is made of a stainless-steel pillar and a marble striated column, present next to the light at the moment of entering.
The project questions the traditional functioning of the Eixample housing model challenging local regulations. Thus, new formulas are sought to colonize the space, in this case: the gallery. It is occupied by the kitchen: a monolith in steel of futuristic aspect, and at the same time a control centre where all the technology of the house is concentrated. At sunset, a motorized fabric blind filters the sunlight, colouring the interior in orange. The nostalgic atmosphere places us in a future that has not yet arrived.
