Extraordinary apartment in a noble building with 2 double bedrooms with bathroom en suite each, with large hall and living room with open kitchen along the main facade and a guest bathroom. Undoubtedly, this apartment could accommodate a third double room with great ease in the dining room area, with the simple placement of a dividing sliding door that could give double use to the space: room and office.
The 138 m² of floor allow all spaces to be generous. It is a very elegant apartment, both for the enclave and the farm and for the materials chosen when the rehabilitation project was executed. The warmth of the environment is achieved through its vaulted ceilings and indirect light in all environments. The kitchen is also very comfortable and spacious since it is fully integrated with the dining room that ventilates the facade of the building through arched openings.
This apartment belongs to a housing development completed in 2016 with spectacular apartments located in a privileged place, next to the old Born Market, one of the most important and emblematic cultural centers of the city of Barcelona. The building is located in the most extensive pedestrian zone of Born and a few meters from Parc de la Ciutadella and Passeig Picasso.
It is a corner farm with two facades, one facade to Ribera street and the other to Commerce street.
The apartment has excellent views of the architecture of Ribera Street and its southeast orientation allows the entry of lots of natural light.
Built in 1888, the estate is cataloged and is part of the historical complex of the Fontseré portals. The facade is completely rehabilitated and restored with traditional stucco and glaze systems. It is a majestic building and that imposes itself elegantly as an exceptional complex surrounding the entire market.
The building has an elevator and has a basement, ground floor, mezzanine, 1st, 2nd, 3rd floors and attic floor on the roof. The ceilings and stucco paintings on the interior walls of the estate have been recovered. In fact, the execution of the project was done with some delay due to the requirement of the Heritage Department of the Barcelona City Council.
In the lobby, the recovery of the original stucco stands out, the lighting system, the wooden mailboxes, the white marble floor, the cabinets of the installations with striated wood finishes and the restoration of the doors and the beautiful elevator box.
In the staircase, the original stuccos have been recovered both on vertical surfaces, topper and upper strip, as well as on horizontal or inclined surfaces, such as the roofs of the landings and the vaults of the staircase. The lighting is permanent in the elevator and in the emergency circuit. Likewise, the pavements, the wooden handrail, the windows and the metal enclosures that protect the elevator shaft have been restored. The access doors to the floors were also conditioned according to the Department of Heritage.
On the roof all existing roofs were repaired: general level of the building, those of the attic floor and that of the existing usable tiles, as well as the perimeter and tiled walls, and the existing buildings in the attic floor. The restoration of the inner courtyards has also been carried out by means of the lining and recovery surfaces of the original materials used in the farm, as well as the reconstruction of facilities and the elimination of obsolete facilities. Note the updating of telecommunications facilities throughout the building. Gas installation review and study of the most appropriate route. Installation of connection tubes for boilers and kitchen extractions. Installation of smoke extraction pipes of the premises of the backyards. Replacement of all existing downspouts.
