Penthouse in Passeig Sant Joan

Transparency and diagonal views allow for greater spatial fluidity.

Comprehensive renovation of an apartment situated in a chamfer of the Extension of Barcelona, where we change the distribution, and design especially the whole furniture. The owner, our clients, a couple of friends with no sons living with them, allows us to eliminate several rooms and extend the Master bedroom and the living room. We look for the transparency and views in diagonal to gain more spatial fluidity. Reason why we propose in transparent glass the upper part of the walls between the kitchen and dining room, bedrooms and corridors. Huge sliding doors speak about the convertibility of the different spaces into others. The new intervention must allow enjoying even more the privileged situation of the apartment.
