A family and eclectic apartment

A family and eclectic apartment

The success of this project was such that it resulted in a new housing concept, riding between style trendy of a city like Barcelona and the weight of the traditional elements that treasure floors with a hearth. So much so that the person responsible for the reform, the architect Kika Estarellas, of Bonba Studio, He opted for the transformation of a house with numerous micro rooms in larger and more united spaces. The result: brighter environments that still retain their Beautiful original structure.

Are all architectural solutions that stand out for their ingenuity and originality; An example of this is the creation of a single common area, which houses a very different living area, directly connected to the kitchen and dining room. A valuable solution that bets on the conception of the three spaces as one by using the coverings: an exclusive flooring -restored old hydraulic tiles-, as well as identical paint on the walls. The fusion of vintage pieces with works of art and certain recycled furniture, some designed by Bonba Studio, and others of the purest design, generates an atmosphere of unique character and great personality.

The two bedrooms resulting after the works are very spacious and with their own bathroom; the one of the children adjoining the corridor and the master suite. It is in this last space that we find again brilliant ideas that solve the complicated distribution, such as the opaque blind that makes the bathroom independent and allows the passage of natural light and total intimacy.

The living area

The beautiful floors of hydraulic tile wanted to be kept exposed and heated in winter with large carpets brought from some trips. As an essential complement to the room, an original bookstore that keeps order at bay was custom made.

Dining room in the kitchen

Since the kitchen had more space than the living area, it was decided to locate the main dining room inside it. A success that lightens the room and enriches this area.

A kitchen open to the living room

The kitchen and living room communicate by means of a large opening without a door and, in addition, the choice of furniture and decorative pieces in tune act as a common thread between the two environments. The kitchen also has a hidden laundry area.

Avant-garde deco

To include a detail or even an abstract work of art it is not necessary to live in a house of radical design; nothing is further from reality, bet on the mix and you will enrich the environment.

The children's bedroom

In the children's room, it was a good idea to opt for a beautiful bunk bed, instead of two twin beds, since this way there is much more space to locate study tables and even
A free zone in the center to play.

A vintage touch in the nursery

The well-integrated retro air pieces set a trend for another season. Why not include any in the children's room? A desk or a chair from those before will put a lovely note.

Color in the children's room

Forget the coordinated ones in the children's room; If they are already older, they will prefer colors away from pastel tones and cushions of fun and varied prints.

The main room

The original structure of the bedroom welcomes such unique details as the treated photographs that decorate the area
of the headboard or the hanging lamps that illuminate the bedside tables. A spectacular contrast.

Accessories that decorate

Details are very important as a final complement to a space. In this bedroom, for example, a recycled closet door, painted and converted into a mirror, puts a very special and personal touch at the foot of the bed.

Windows that enhance the light

The beautiful windows of glass and painted wood quarters were preserved although improved, with acid crystals at the bottom that guarantee the privacy of the bathroom. Even so, several white blinds were installed that, in addition to blurring the light, update the space.

An integrated bathroom

The old terrace of the house is integrated into the bedroom after the reform. This new space is ideal for locating a complete bathroom with a large opening instead of a door - equipped with an opaque blind - that allows the passage of light.
