The project involves the refurbishment of an old, traditional Basque house to convert it into a two-family residence. The project’s main aim is to strip out the property internally and to adapt it to the new occupiers’ needs, always respecting the architectural characteristics of this superb historical dwelling.

The house dates from 1930, with a facade of 7m wide and a built depth of 10m. This town house survives the real estate pressure and the transformation of the neighborhood that has been replacing this typology with multi-family buildings of more than 4 floors as those that surround it.
We are commissioned to refurbish an apartment in the Eixample district of Barcelona. It is set within the chamfered façade of the block with fantastic views of Passeig Sant Joan, enjoying great visual depth to this avenue.
