With great pleasure we give on a display another exquisite work of Barcelona-based architectural bureau, ARQUITECTURA-G .
Refurbishment of a flat on the Casanova Str. in Eixample district of Barcelona was carried out in 2105. The area of 70m² was transformed into a photographic studio assuring housing amenities as well. Since the client required a good capacity of storage spaces and zones with certain privacy, the architects of ARQUITECTURA-G filled the space with monolithic cube-shaped form containing all needed facilities. The aim, most of all, was to keep the space open. With the embodied convenient solution, the goal has been achieved with unrepeatable outlook.
The design consists of a compact volume including the bedroom and bathroom inside, while setting the kitchen on the outside of the form. The private areas were located on the platform, separating them from the room, at the same time ensuring the feeling of intimacy. To make an inside area more spacious, the designers designed a mirror wall as a back of the bedroom, opening to the bathroom. The platform also serves as a bench, where one can sit down to eat or place any object on it. „The raised bedroom is interconnected with the kitchen and the open area by steps and also its privacy can be regulated by a set of folding shutter doors,” the architects add. A feeling of freshness and stimulation in the whole area was achieved by use of gentle shade of mint and reflective surfaces.
