Nook Architects transformed this narrow 16-foot Barcelona row house into an open home. The bottom floor combines the kitchen, dining area, and living room within a single open floor plan. With the exception of the bathroom, located behind the stairwell, natural light reaches the entire room. Much of the furniture, including the green arm chair and side tables, came from a Swedish antique dealer.
In the living room of the renovated Barcelona apartment designer Elina Vila D’Acosta-Calheiros shares with her husband, Ginés Gorriz, Arne Jacobsen Swan chairs join a sofa by Piero Lissoni for Living Divani. The cabinet is from Cappellini, as is the Marcel Wanders Big Shadow lamp.
Barcelona-based architect Adrian Elizalde embarked on this renovation project for his family’s 1930s apartment. His strategy was to inject some Scandinavian cool on a limited budget, using custom wood pieces and a sparse aesthetic to open things up. Lamps sourced from secondhand stores and a set of Belloch chairs by Santa & Cole are arrayed across the space.
Historic mosaic tiles inspired this modern Barcelona renovation by Anna and Eugeni Bach. A glazed veranda on the flat’s west side offers a cozy spot to enjoy an espresso. The utilitarian table and chairs were purchased second-hand, while the lamp was custom designed.
This 19th-century building in Barcelona was reimagined with luminous, open living spaces, in anticipation of a future remodel. Preserving the spirit of the original building, new wooden window frames were crafted.
