Modern apartment with a mix of mosaic flooring and exposed wooden ceiling beams
Casa Roc is a modern apartment located in Barcelona which wa designed by Nook Architects. It has a striking interior, mostly because of the size and décor. The kitchen is very large and has a modern design with an industrial feel. It’s an impression given by the fact that the furniture is made of steel and has a metallic look and there are also exposed beams in the ceilings that have painted white. The walls are white the floor features the original mosaic that really adds pattern and color to the whole décor.
The internal structure of the apartment wasn’t exactly what its owners wanted. However, despite their efforts, the wall from the center of the residence couldn’t be removed so, instead, the architects decided to just wrap the kitchen and bathrooms around it and use as a central axis. The kitchen is part of a large open plan living area that also includes the dining room. The private areas such as the bedrooms are located on the other side of the apartment.
The master bedroom has sliding doors that hide the washroom and the toilet and allows only one of them to be enclosed at a time. The rest of the apartment is simple and has a rather eclectic décor. Even after it has been renovated, it still boosts some of the original elements such as the mosaic floors or the beams from the ceiling. The restoration was a project by nook architects and they managed to bring this apartment back to life and turn it into a modern home.
