The Piso Pereiv apartment was reformed with the idea of using it as a tourist apartment for short but vibrant stays. The project was designed and completed in 2016 by Barcelona-based MIEL Arquitectos.
Project description: First two double bedrooms, white and calm, have their own built-in wardrobe-desks made partly from the flat’s original doors and unfolding the middle brick wall creating the headboard-desk.
As second course the bathroom fixtures are separate, with a toilet in one space and the shower and the washbasin next to the kitchen, both joined by a burgundy technical floor encasing the wiring and pipes, but at the same time separated by a mirrored wall broken by two cosy doorways with a soft green fluorescent ambient.
And for dessert, the kitchen is center of this apartment wrapped with a bar which provides an inviting place to chat and have something to eat. The large mirrored wall offers many opportunities for playing with the multiple reflections.
The natural light reflects from the mirrors to the white painted brick walls and floods into the kitchen, which seems more like a raised DJ booth than Grandma’s cosy cooking corner. The resultant concave space brings together and multiplies this social temple illuminated by the colored PET Lamps of our inspiring friend Alvaro Catalán de Ocón.
