Large windows, high ceilings, open spaces ... the origin of this Barcelona loft It is an old alcohol distillery, formed by several buildings that were declared of architectural interest. The rehabilitation, carried out by the company Passatge del Sucre, and the decoration project, carried out by the Coco-Mat signature, gave the best of the fruits: the creation of a modern and functional housing. A dream for everyone who seeks full freedom of movement, multifunctional environments and visual depth, something difficult in a conventional home, with different rooms separated by partitions and doors. In this rehabilitation, it can be said that the materials are the mainstays of the project.
It started by reinforce the original dark ceramic vault cover and for conserving one of the brick walls seen; but it was decided to change lyou others by white walls, to propagate natural light and install a Oak flooring with extra long lamas to gain warmth. With a steel ladder and the metal ducts in sight for the air conditioning system, the industrial aesthetic was completed. The decoration is also decisive to achieve unique environments. In all the ground floor, where the common areas are located, the furniture is the protagonist, first because of its large dimensions, proportional to the space and the huge windows; Then, by design. The L-shaped sofa, which seems almost endless, grabs all the attention in the living room, and in the dining room, two equal oak tables that, together, add more than 4 m in length, take over.
The choice of these tables gives maximum flexibility to the space. One of them is used daily for meals and the second, for work; but the latter, you can always accommodate more guests. Already on the top floor, the bedroom with a separate bathroom was located. In the rest area, true to the philosophy of the Coco-Mat brand, the undisputed star is a big bed, pure comfort, wrapped by a headboard, pillows, cushions and a romantic canopy.

Two large wooden tables occupy a good part of the ground floor. Its dimensions, proportional to space, are due to a particularity of the lofts: the creation of multifunctional spaces.

Of the brick walls seen, only one pillar was preserved in the bedroom, located on the upper floor; White was chosen to easily propagate natural light and thus prevent the ceramic vault ceiling from obscuring this space.

Here, the visual depth is achieved by reducing one of the walls to a wall. Furniture and textiles, from Coco-Mat.Sober bath
