La Olga Apartment in Barcelona / RÄS Studio

La Olga Apartment in Barcelona RÄS Studio (1)

The Spanish studio RÄS has recently completed La Olga, an apartment in Barcelona.

Project description: We found La Olga apartment with way too many partitions regarding its dimensions and its availability of natural light and ventilation. We decided to pull as much as possible the living area towards the back of the building, so that the bedrooms could absorb part of the light that is filtered through the main façade.

In La Olga we worked on contrasts to break the volume up into planes, gesture that makes the spatial lecture have some complexity, less global.
