The redesign is inspired by the neighborhood’s history. Outside, the labyrinth–like streets from the Born district experience contrast between the buildings’ shadows and Barcelona’s bright sun light. Inside the flat the same contrast has been applied to materials, lights and colors.
“The team at Bloomint Design did a great job of planning and executing a renovation that combines innovative design with respect for the history and essential character of an old city apartment. They were ‘hands-on’ enough to make things easy for us, being relatively unfamiliar with the city and the design process itself, but respectful enough of our creative input that we feel the space is truly our own.”
The perfect match between old and new, darkness and light, colors and white. Functional furniture and intelligent built-in storage was custom made to contrast with the uncovered old bricks, stonewalls and ancient wooden doors.
