This apartment is located on the upper floor of a typical building in Ciutat Vella, of great architectural beauty that is manifested both in its facade and in its common areas and inside the house itself. The traditional composition of the facade with balconies, jambs, lintels and stone cornices, wrought iron railings and an unpretentious aesthetic, with a lot of class, stands out. In addition, the building has a façade width wide enough to be able to place a complete housing distribution program inside and narrow enough to be able to have a unidirectional slab structure of very solid wooden beams that makes it possible to dispense with any other structural element, in addition to its dividing walls.
The building has only 5 apartments, one per floor. The non-existence of the elevator is supplemented by an original staircase through which time has not passed, in which the original details are kept almost intact. The apartment is accessed practically from the center of the building, dividing it into two parts, a rear part where there are two rooms that ventilate towards the rear facade of the building, an intermediate area that is used as a dining room and kitchen and a bathroom that serves as a courtesy toilet and as a bathroom of the two bedrooms described. The front part of the house, with two balconies from which you can enjoy so many other facades of great beauty, houses the main living room of the house and a third room with another bathroom located at the beginning of the access to this area. In fact, the apartment allows its clear division into two spaces.
In the house, the luminosity, the free height of the ceilings, the feeling of spaciousness and above all the care for detail and the shabby chic decoration that can be appreciated in the recovery of original elements of the house such as doors, frames, beams, furniture, fabrics and paintings that decorate the environment.
The neighborhood is the oldest in the city and offers all sort of museums, theaters and places where you can appreciate the culture and character of the city. The street is wide compared to most of the winding streets of Ciutat Vella and this allows a direct entry of light into the house. As it is the city center, transport services, gastronomic offer and commerce are guaranteed. It stands out the proximity to some of the most important attractions of the city such as the Rambla, the Boquería Market, the Liceo Theater, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Old Hospital de la Santa Cruz and countless bucolic spaces that give the character of this very authentic neighborhood.
