Located in an old building from the historic neighborhood of Poble Nou in Barcelona, this narrow apartment practically begged for a renovation. The extremely narrow floor plan was definitely an inconvenience for both the clients and the architects that had to conduct the project. The loft had a surface of 100 square meters.The project was developed by YLAB arquitectos and the main concern was introducing more natural light into the apartment. Given its deep and narrow plan, managing to create an airy, spacious and bright look was a challenge.
In order to respond to this major request, the architects needed to remove a few partitions. The main living spaces are organized around a bathroom. The architects had to eliminate the unnecessary partitions, the goal being the creation of a new internal distribution that would only contain a bedroom suite, a guest bathroom, a second bedroom, a studio, a kitchen, a dining room and a living area.
