Barcelona: A prestigious renovation by Bach Arquitectes

The Spanish firm Bach Arquitectes was involved in the renovation project of an apartment in the Ensanche district of Barcelona. With attention to small details, the architects have made ​​a sort of puzzle of prestigious and original features, satisfying new housing needs.

The house, dating from 1910, had never undergone any substantial changes. However, the state of the apartment was awful, except for the beautiful floors and ceilings, kept in a proper manner. Wanting to exalt these historical elements, the architects conducted a meticulous work of mending from room to room, in an effort to implement the new program without changing the pre-existence.

The woodwork has been so preserved in its original location or moved, always respecting the original position of the floors and openings facing the patio.

Thanks to the generous height of the apartment, ​​it was possible to raise the level of the bathroom floor of 60 cm, obtaining a lumber-room accesible from the hallway or the kitchen.

The long corridor, typical of traditional houses in Barcelona, ​​serves here as a protagonist. It does not act as a simple transit area but it presents shelves along its entire length becoming a library and place for storage. Some Ikea table lamps, unusually hanging from the ceiling, help to give the space a surreal character, creating a pleasant and familiar atmosphere!

I really like the results of this renovation…the house is very bright and its floors and ceilings are fantastic!
