Renovation of a penthouse in Barcelona. The project changes only the situation of the kitchen, near the entrance before and joined to the dinning/living room now. With this simple movement, all the day-area is near the terrace, with nice views over the city. Moreover, this change improves relationship between family members, so many different activities can be developped in the same room at the same time.
We have used one material, pine wood, for windows, door frames, handles and shelves. An oak parquet flooring is used in all the appartment except for bathrooms, where we have reused hundred-year-old decorative tiles salvaged from different appartments, creating a pattern with 3 different pieces.
Energy saving and the use of natural materials has been key of this project.We have isolated all existing facades, most of them an only 15cm. wall.
