Although its architecture and exteriors resemble the purest British style, This house is located in a privileged area of Barcelona.
The small balustrades, the columns and the doors with semicircular arches frame the entrance to the house, which has a cozy access patio; This, which acts as a garden, changes its traditional rear location, more typical in a large number of buildings. After crossing this threshold of marked classic flavor, it surprises an avant-garde interior, with surprising architectural solutions. The person responsible for the reform is the architect Joan Sandoval Amat which focused on the breadth of spaces and the search for natural light.
The house has three floors and a loft which are accessed through a unique iron staircase. This design, which is the protagonist just after crossing the threshold, occupies part of the hall and has a large open vertical opening, which allows you to see all three heights. On the ground floor we find the living room, a toilet and the kitchen, independent of the hall by a large sliding glass door that goes unnoticed. In its decoration, eclecticism prevails, full of surprising mixtures that work perfectly. The two upper floors are intended for rest areas and their corresponding bathrooms; one of them organized exclusively for parents and the other for children's rooms.
In the attic a magnificent space for games was created, with access to a small terrace worthy of mention for the spectacular views it offers over Barcelona.
