Penthouse in Aribau Street

The entire house is automated with the highest level of sophistication.

A triplex with a swimming pool in the best area of Barcelona, however with some extremely conflictive neighbours in the building. The project intends to situate the “daytime zone” on the top floor to enjoy the magnificent terraces set at the same level as an extension of the interior space, with the top floor penthouse containing a gym, sundeck and a small up-current swimming pool. The top floor can be used throughout the year as it has a moving glass roof which can be opened or closed at will. The bedrooms are tucked below on the lower level, and accessed from here. A translucent onyx wall is used to separate the served and serving spaces. The staircase wrapping around a panoramic glass elevator is the crowning piece in the space.
