Minimalist penthouse with terrace in a century-old building without elevator in Eixample.
The interior spaces are divided into two rectangles, practically identical. The front space consists of an open kitchen and living room with direct access to an outdoor terrace, the rear space houses a double bedroom, a dressing room and a full bathroom.
The outdoor space consists of four different areas, the main terrace, the shower area, the barbecue area and a side space that is used as a laundry room. The main terrace is delimited by a fence that is intended to be used as a support for the vertical garden, with ivy or vines.
The orientation of the terrace and the living room and kitchen of the house is southwest, so the solar incidence is direct and therefore the luminosity of the property is extraordinary.
The coatings and the type of materials used attract a lot of attention. Phenolic wood boards have been used to cover the walls of the living room, ceramic tiles typical of Barcelona's rooftops for the floor covering of the same space and continuous white cladding in the room.
The light entry elements stand out, such as the front closing of the sliding doors of the main façade or the circular skylight in the room. The air conditioning system is through air conditioning ducts and the appliances are Smeg brand.
The project is designed by Thomas Raynaud Architects.
The property is located very close to the Plaza de las Glorias, just 15 minutes from the beach and within walking distance of the Sagrada Familia and the Poblenou district. It is the perfect place for a single person or young sports couple, since you need to be in shape to climb the staircase that leads to this spectacular space.
