A 90m² apartment full of light

A 90m² apartment full of light

Located in a Centennial building of Barcelona's Ensanche, the reform of this house of 90 m2 bears the imprint of the Interior designers Mario Calavera and Dunia Garriga. Their owners, a couple with two children, were clear What they wanted: gain breadth. Therefore, suppressing corridors and demolishing partitions to optimize space was the priority objective. In addition, the work was conditioned by the irregular house floor, since it makes chamfer. A particularity that was solved without any problem.

The new floor of the house was thought so that the service area - bathrooms and kitchen - was distributed around the inner courtyard of the building, to solve the issue of downspouts, ventilation and smoke outlet. Where originally there was a narrow corridor with a tiny toilet, a small room without light that led to another room and a triangle-shaped bathroom, now there is a distributor that gives way to an independent area, with a bathroom and the children's bedroom . The rooms facing the exterior façade were modified by throwing several partitions; The new distribution includes study, living room and master bedroom with integrated bathroom. The kitchen was extended at the expense of the old hall, and adopted an original triangular shape due to the irregularity of the house.

The intelligent choice of furniture, both in the living room and in the bedrooms, which includes only the essential elements, and the installation of sliding doors and fitted wardrobes they put their grain of sand at the time of gaining space. As for the pavement, the problems of vibrations and the beams in poor condition of the structure forced to replace the original cladding, which was a hydraulic mosaic, by industrial type parquet, of oak.
