This project showcases the renovation of a residence located in the Sant Antoni neighborhood of Barcelona. The apartment is on the ground floor and has only one facade with natural light; the rest of the spaces are dark and poorly ventilated.
The entire project revolves around the concept of ensuring that the apartment enjoys the lighting and ventilation from the main facade.
The layout design was created in the form of a funnel. In the area closest to the facade, we placed a large room with the kitchen, dining area, and living room that captures all the natural light. The rest of the rooms are set back, allowing the light to filter to the end of the apartment.
The rooms and the bathroom have different types of glass to allow natural light to enter with varying degrees of privacy. Additionally, a large sliding door closes the funnel to divide the apartment into two, depending on the needs of the moment.
The herringbone pattern on the floor reflects our intention to emphasize the direction of light, as if it were waves moving toward the shore.
