This refurbished apartment located in Gracia, near Barcelona has been created from old laundry space. The architect Carles Enrich turned old ugly basement into modern family friendly apartment.
To create more floor area some part of middle floor was depth to from study and nursery room. Above this is a mezzanine with bedroom. Steps up to bedroom are suspended from beams using black metal elements. On the ground floor is the dining, kitchen and seating area. An old storage room at the back of the plot was converted into a satellite studio that operates independently from the main space. Such design solution makes the patio an intermediate space that can be used as an outdoor room most part of the year. Additionaly owners can get to terrace from patio. Original masonry walls and the small ceramic ceiling vaults between wooden beams were retained and exposed where possible. Brick and plasterwork have been painted white on most other walls.
