As we have discussed before there is a thin line between living as an art and art-gallery space for living. The luminous spaciousness of this loft offers the perfect ambiance for the owner’s and designer’s art compilations without denying the modern lifestyle ambiance suitable for a home.
The designers from The Room Studio sought to create a space with preserved industrial features that can still hold comfortable living arrangements as well as to offer a dynamic space for exhibitions related to the art word. An intriguing and dynamic combination that can be found only in the heart of challenging and artistic city as Barcelona, Spain.
Preserving some of the original features of the spacious loft configuration, underlining the rough, organic and industrial materials palette and adding a sparkle of color and artistic shapes the design team created a unique and entreating modern space. Each corner of the interior arrangement has a distinctive color, feature, or an art detailed. An eclectic mixture of retro, industrial, fine art and modern shapes composes the vital decor of this modern home.
Exposed brick walls entwine with thin metal frames, industrial-style open piping, concrete and terrazzo give a trendy, dynamic nuance to the decor. The shine of the metal structures (especially in the food preparation zone) is juxtaposed to warm wooden and textural elements, and the intriguing shapes and colors combine into one unique and entreating ambiance. The loft space configuration offers an open- plan connection between the modernistic and industrial kitchen arrangement (with many playful and artistic details) and the more organic, even somewhat vernacular (apart from the futuristic bright red chairs) dining area.
The same playful juxtaposition can be observed in the main sitting zone: art-sculpture like the kidney-shaped white couch is pair up with slouchy, rich and welcoming modular sofa with trendy, yet very cozy and inviting dove-gray presence. Throughout the place, art elements and iconic furniture pieces, with the status of art elements, entwine in one colorful and dynamic decor.
A party inviting bar with a music zone completes the social zone configuration, which is spaciously arranged beneath the unique ceiling structure with its metal constructs and skylight openings, which, by the way, cleverly secure enough light for the artistic decor composition. The bedroom is located on the second level of the loft, in a more secluded, organic, and cozy ambiance. The bathroom is connected in a trendy open-plan configuration with the bedroom area. Well, everything in this modern urban dwelling deserves careful exploration and attention, so take your time.
