A contemporary design floor

A contemporary design floor

Cosmopolitan and avant-garde. This floor is pure design. A reform that takes advantage of the space, a shared common area, perfect work solutions and an interior design of ten. Impossible not to fall in love with this house with views over Barcelona and with the sea in the background.

On the occasion of Barcelona Design Week 2015, the architecture and interior design studio YLAB Arquitectos Barcelona He presented this contemporary style project.

The study sought the redistribution of space (113 m2 + 20 m2 terrace), granting prominence to the common spaces - living room, dining room and kitchen - and directing them outwards, through the window through which the floor communicates with the terrace. The longitudinal window is precisely a screen where the views of the city are projected. The kitchen is another of the pillars of the house with a clean, warm and office design. It also highlights the series of built-in appliances, from Miele.

The spaces that require greater privacy - bedroom and bathroom - are moved inside, so that long corridors are eliminated and the distribution areas are more integrated.

In interior design they stand out design pieces and works by the American sculptor Frank Plant, the photographer Ciro Frank Schiappa and the graphic communication studio Oi Comunicació. In addition, in the reform the home automation It occupies a preferred place. Through the system Myhome, of Bticino, the ignition, the intensity of the illumination or the position of the curtains are controlled by means of elegant tactile screens, of the series Axolute

On a whim and in detail! This apartment is a must.

Framed in Barcelona Design Week 2015, this project was opened to the public in an exceptional way
