Worn interiors, small rooms and lack of light were ruining the potential of this 3,000 sq. ft. apartment on Barcelona’s Avenida Pau Casals in Spain. Due to its elongated shape, the biggest challenge designer Ana Engelhorn faced was bringing natural light into the middle section. By changing the apartment’s internal layout, they were able to create a large, bright apartment with three bedrooms. They increased the master bedroom size and designed a multi-purpose space that includes a bedroom, dressing room, lounge, yoga room and bathroom. Three small rooms were transformed into an airy open-plan kitchen that flows directly into the dining room.
When choosing furniture, fixtures and decor, they sourced quality pieces from across Europe. The overall appearance, however, has a decidedly English flair. They decorated each en-suite and the guest bathroom with Drummonds’ utilities and all the artwork is from Spanish artists in Madrid and Arco. The result is a bold, contemporary living space, full of drama and character.(Published with Bowerbird.io)
