The renovation of this two-story apartment in Barcelona consists of the inversion of uses on each level to take better advantage of a roof terrace with panoramic views of the city. Originally, the lower floor contained the daytime spaces, and the upper floor a bedroom opening onto the terrace. The renovation transformed the upstairs bedroom into a living-dining room with kitchen, and the original downstairs living-dining room and kitchen into two bedrooms and an office. The vertical opening between the two floors was also enlarged so that a new, more comfortable stair could be installed, as was the sliding door opening between the living room and the roof terrace.
I’m responsible for the framing, electrical, drywall, and carpentry, and very grateful to the following professionals who were also involved:
Structural consultant: Carmela Torró Micó
Steel work: Miguel Vila
Masonry and plumbing: Ion “Juan” Veverita
