It’s important to us to convey the neighbourhood’s history in the interior design. The Rosic apartment is in one of the many labyrinths like streets from the Born neighbourhood in Barcelona.

In these streets strong contrasts exist between the building shadows and the bright sun light. The contrast continues at night with subtle lighting in the small streets and theatrical lighting in the plazas and larger avenues. Inside the flat we wanted to feel the same contrast, in the materials, lights and colours. We decided to change atmosphere while changing spaces, from corridors to the open space, from room to bathroom, going further into intimate and calm spaces, the light changes, the atmosphere transformations.

The perfect contrast between old & new materials, between dark & light, between colours & White. The new construction is functional with intelligent built in storage, modern elements were made to measure for this Project to contrast with the old bricks & stone walls and ancient wooden doors, which we rediscovered doing an almost archaeological excavation, scratching on walls and old paint, a meticulous work but definitely worth it.
