Refurbishment of a 45 m2 apartment in Barcelona

This early 20th century apartment was composed of a series of dark, linked rooms that had accumulated elements and layers throughout the century. Underneath this historical confusion, we were able to find the defining original elements that enabled us to understand the past. The distribution of the original tiles indicated a hierarchy of use and an original fragmented distribution. Behind the late 20th century drywall ceilings we were able to retrieve the original geometries and rhythms of the Eixample brick vault and metal beam ceilings. We defined a strategy of transformation and recycling that would make the most of the existing historical elements, that would optimize natural light conditions and that would allow for flexible use of the domestic space.
