Major remodelling of a 71 m2 apartment located in the heart of the Gothic quarter, Barcelona.
The challenge of this project was that it is a listed building, so apart from customer preferences, any modifications had to comply with the applicable town-hall regulations. We performed structural reinforcement of ceiling joists in order to modify internal layout of the flat and then proceeded to installing split-type air conditioning and heating systems. As for carpentry, the ceiling had original wood beams, which were in a deteriorated shape, so we had to reinforce them with timber before incorporating lighting into them.
Where possible, we always try to conserve the original construction elements, and if we find them in a deteriorated state, it is very important to use the adequate restoration technique. Such elements add cultural and historical value to the place, and it is vital that we conserve them.
In addition to electric wiring and plumbing, we also procured tailor-made furniture and installed home appliances of customer’s choice.
As for flooring, the original ceramic tiles were replaced with oak tree floor over a reinforced base.
As you can see, the common element of this home is wood. In the recent years, this material has become the king of interior design due to it being organic, aesthetically pleasing, easy to combine, very resistant, and also for its thermal qualities. In this project, we can see wood on the floors, on the ceiling, plus the furniture. Wood adds warmth to the space and helps to maintain style continuity throughout the house.
