Name: Freixures Attic- Barcelona
Location: Barcelona
Year: 2010
Area 50 sq.m + terrace

Living-dining room, kitchenette, bathroom, main bedroom, secondary bedroom/study, laundry and terrace.

A 40-year-old attic, with a small living-dining room and three very small bedrooms, is the basis of this intervention to redesign the whole place. Making the attic an appropriate place for an adult couple, who will not use it as a permanent home, is the mission that motivates this project.

The elimination of two of the bedrooms, the integration of the kitchen into the living-dining room and the redesigning of the bathroom, which at this time will be fully partitioned to allow a multiple simultaneous use, are the decisions that have most notably marked the proposal. Likewise, focusing on the service area (kitchen / bathroom) has allowed us to connect the small study/bedroom to the daytime zone of the apartment. The kitchen cabinets and the bedroom closets, as well as the fixed furniture in general, of minimalist style, become part of the framework rather than the content.
