AN APARTMENT PERFECT FOR AN ART LOVER
We rescue one of our most praised renovations from the vault of projects! Remember that you can check all our most prominent works in the Projects page. Today we take a look into this exquisite renovation done by RARDO-Architects for and art enthusiast.
We were asked to carry out a full-scale renovation of an apartment located at an 1862-listed building in Sitges, Barcelona. Set in one of the most distinguished streets of the city, the floor had an out-dated interior architecture configuration. We had to create a metallic enclosure to allow us to demolish all its non-structural walls and elevate the floor of the property. This procedure was fundamental to meet modern standards and to satisfy our client’s requirements. We reconfigured all of the spaces to emphasize the division between daily common areas from the private ones. The inner walls were placed parallel to the outer and margin wall to optimize the use of every room. The structural walls remained intact, except for those facing south. We used a series of shorings to open the southern wall and bring natural light inside, while taking advantage of the views towards an inner plaza. Taking in consideration our client’s identity, we meticulously worked on its interior design. We selected existing objects and created custom furniture to bring functionality and character to every environment.
