Reformed from the top down, this beautiful house in Barcelona, Spain, spotted on Mi Casa, maintains its noble essence with dazzling interior design and architecture and great distribution of spaces. Interior designers Daniel Pérez & Felipe Araujo, from the studio Egue y Seta were in charge of the project, transforming the home completely while still preserving some of the historical features. They maintained the height of the ceiling, restored the wooden beams and chose a vintage flooring pattern. The decoration style of the home was a retro-modern and industrial infused together to create a perfect blend.

The original design of the home was articulated through a corridor, which now revolves around a large kitchen, occupying one third of the area on the ground floor. The new distribution contributes to creating more spaciousness and blurs the boundary between public and private spaces. The living room and bedrooms remain open to filter natural light throughout the home. Even the master bathroom, which is inside the bedroom, has a glass partition with plants inside to add privacy but enables light to penetrate the space.
