Renovation of apartment

Bonsuccés is an apartment which has evolved from several parts of an 18th Century building. The apartment has two stairwells and three front doors, which needed to be adapted to suit the client’s requirements. A set of independent spaces were required, – to run a photography studio and editorial office, without losing any of its function as a family home. After some selective demolition and restructuring this was achieved, with its highlight the single volume living space, subdivided by vertical and horizontal piers pierced at different levels to create sightlines across the room. The crisp new construction and vibrant colour scheme contrasts well with the traditional Catalan ceiling, creating a monumental space with the feel of an intimate home.
