Renovation of a flat in the Fort Pienc neighbourhood, it is an old house located in a singular site, a building with a large interior garden, very unusual in Eixample buildings.

Originally, the house had a segmented distribution and poor light entry. For this project, we committed to a very minimal intervention but with great results, rearranging the space and thus optimizing its functionality and the entry of natural light.

A radical change is generated in the way of understanding the space. The existing kitchen is relocated turning it into a central space, characteristic of the contemporary lifestyle, sharing the same environment with the dining room and the living room.

All the rooms are naturally illuminated from the outside and are related to each other by an L-shaped corridor, allowing a diaphanous path full of light, which enters in various directions thanks to the different openings and windows.

The project pays special attention to the selection of materials in order to complement the original materials in an organic and respectful way. The existing textures are enhanced in their maximum rawness, by striking walls and leaving the ceiling completely visible.

A thermoclay partition will guide the main corridor to the center of the house, vertically differentiating the space between the existing and the new construction. Also, its repetitive texture is juxtaposed with the brutalist texture of original ceilings and walls. Wooden slats run through this corridor merging with the parquet floor, providing warmth to the space.

To add color to the house, the original walls are stripped, revealing a singular texture and mixture of colors. These walls will maintain a constant dialogue with the yellow ceramics that will cover the bathrooms and kitchen. Integrating itself in the global design of the house and emphasizing the coexistence between the old and the new, white and color.
