An urban loft respecting its unique history in Barcelona

Renovated-Loft-Interior-01- 1 Kindesign

Inherited from the grandparents of the current owners, a family of four embarked on a journey to transform this 120 year old loft space into a modernized structure with historical references. Located in Horta, a district of Barcelona, Spain, the owners, who are in the fashion and design industry, took on the project themselves. The rehabilitation including tearing out the existing flooring and replacing it with new oak flooring throughout most of the interiors. Removing the ceilings to reveal their original vaulted brick and revealing ductwork to add to the aesthetic of the loft. The layout of the two levels remained intact, where the lower level features the public zones and the upper the more private spaces. Part of the transformation encompassed an open plan kitchen, dining and family room. Across the hall is the living room with a cozy fireplace. After the rehabilitation was complete, the decorative piece of the project was carried out by the furnishings store Luzio. The design team furnished the spaces to adapt to the unique personality of the owners and the pieces were mainly of an eclectic styling, with some vintage. Material finishes included leather, wood and ethnic fabrics in a neutral color palette.
