Sants, Barcelona | July 2018
These two twin apartments are located in the quiet neighborhood of Sants, 2 minutes from the Plaça de Sants metro and very close to the Parc de l’Espanya Industrial. The building is a regal building with a facade to Guadiana street and an interior block, both apartments are located on the second floor.
The apartment has been completely renovated, modifying its layout to give more light and more open spaces. Upon entering you will find a distributor from which you can access all the spaces in the house. There is a bathroom with a closet for the electric water heater and pre-installation for the washing machine. The rooms are opened to the outside by the courtyard block, so that they face the quieter side of the building, we find a double room with dressing room in the gallery and another suite room with dressing room and another private bathroom. The spacious living room-kitchen has a balcony overlooking the street Guadiana and the kitchen is distributed on one side ending with a bench that integrates the dining table, leaving all the rest of the space for the lounge.
Many of the original architectural elements have been preserved, such as the high ceramic vault ceilings, which can be seen in many areas of the apartment, or the brick walls. The beautiful existing hydraulic mosaics have also been preserved and polished in some areas. The rooms and the living room have been paved with parquet flooring to give more warmth. All the carpentries have been made new wood, with double glass and camera. The apartment is equipped with all new lighting, water and sanitation facilities and hot and cold air conditioning machines in all rooms. The kitchen has an electric oven, induction hob and integrated dishwasher and fridge-freezer.
