Utilizing the perfect amount of contemporary design elements without sacrificing the “homey” feeling we are looking to maintain, the Barcelona based design studio YLAB Arquitectos has recently completed a beautiful renovation on this single family apartment.
The dwelling is located in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, Spain, and features about 1,400 square feet of living space. As we previously mentioned the design team opted for a clean, contemporary route, but managed to do so without making the home feel like a museum maintaining all of the feelings we love about “home.”
“The project is based on a reinterpretation of the existing spatial structure of different rooms with differentiated uses and atmospheres, redefining the assigned uses and functions and creating new spatial and visual connections without allowing the traditional elements to predominate. The aim is to create a peaceful environment which allows its young owner privacy and a work place, while creating a social meeting place for meals and parties.”
