An attic overlooking the sky

An attic overlooking the sky

An attic next to Barcelona's port, with views and lots of light, but with everything to do, since its state and distribution were outdated. The owners, a young couple, newly married, without children and with a lot of social life, knew that it could become the house of their dreams, provided they were successful with the reform. Therefore, they entrusted the project and the decoration to the Pia Capdevila Interiorismo & Eventos studio. The first thing: demolition of partitions to achieve a new, very current distribution, with two areas, common and private, well defined.

In the center of the attic and to the left from the entrance, the kitchen was located, open and connected to the living room, an environment that extends into a terrace, recovered taking advantage of the reform. The private area, to the right of the entrance, is accessed through a corridor that leads to two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Other radical changes: the colors and textures of the coatings, and the sheet metal duct installation on the roof so characteristic of the loft. All this recreates the industrial style on the floor. The interior designer combined smooth walls with exposed brick and gave maximum prominence to a front, lined with natural stone slabs. This large irregular surface enriches with its chromatic mix and its reliefs the decoration of the kitchen in white, black and steel.

The continuous pavement, made of gray epoxy resin paint, serves as a conductive thread between the environments, gives cohesion to the project and contributes, together with natural light, to create feeling of more spaciousness in the house. To highlight the interior design, the designs made by the Pia Capdevila studio, from the headboard with tables that "straighten" the bedroom wall, to the low furniture that runs through the entire window of the living room.

Plane and ideas

- The feeling of spaciousness is achieved by removing several partitions and creating a single common area with different environments: kitchen and living room, where natural light finds no obstacles. A beam in the ceiling - which could not be removed or hidden, and also reduces the height of the ceiling - and a sideboard behind the sofa are the dividing elements.
