The apartment provides a Barcelona base for Laia and Biel Huguet, owners of Mallorcan tile brand Huguet, in the city’s Gracia district. Its 65-square-metre interior is arranged across three consecutive rooms, with a view onto the street at one end of the apartment, and a view onto a central courtyard at the other.TEd’A founders Irene Pérez and Jaume Mayol aimed to open up the interior of the property, so that light could penetrate the darker central space.
Value the small, the tiny, the almost imperceptible. Observe and attend to architecture closely, from very close. Pursue and be persecuted for the last detail, with no option to stop before. To reach, in certain case, to the aggregate with which the joint between two tiles will be executed, to make the project depend on it, and to know that the project depends on it.
The intervention consists of the interior refurbishment of an old flat located in the Gracia district of Barcelona. It is a passing apartment, with one facade on the street and the other on the inside of the block. The apartment is made up of three bays, two of which have a facade and the central one is completely interior. Photographer: José Hevia;
