We find a 1930's ground floor in the old town of sarrià, a neighborhood in the upper area of Barcelona. This place was known as it had sold goodies to the neighborhood for many years.
The clients, a couple of young entrepreneurs called us in case we could convert that space that was in a very bad state in a house. As we progressed in the study, we realized that the false ceiling concealed a Catalan vault made of precious ceramics which could give a lot of character to the final dwelling.
Access at street level is where we find the hall and the master suite room. Then there is the open kitchen and dining room with the vaulted ceiling and two rooms, one of them facing the backyard and the garden.
There is a gallery designed as a reading space before going out to the patio. A wooden step / staircase was made to bridge the gap between the house and the garden, which was at an upper level where there is a centennial mimosa.
Natural oak wood is combined with geometric mosaics. The doors made of pine give the character of warmth we were looking for.
