A flat as classic as modern

A flat as classic as modern

The EspaiRoux study has made past and present coexist in an apartment located in Barcelona's Eixample. They, like their owners, had fallen in love with the traditional elements of the houses that were built in this area in the early twentieth century, such as high ceilings, hydraulic floors or glazed gallery, but the distribution was not adapted to the needs of the large family that I now saw from ceiling to floor that allow dividing or merging rooms at the whim of the residents. But this revolution was made with care, recovering original elements and respecting the stately air of the floor.

The decoration is also the result of respect for the past and its combination with the present. Some of the furniture in this residence was already owned by the owners. The interior designers reupholstered them by conversing the classic style and sought their counterpoint with current designs and seasoned the combination with the owner's works of art, achieving a mixture as traditional as today that is timeless, warm and, above all, very functional.
