Often the great luxuries are more in the circumstances that surround us than in the strictly material. For this small apartment located in the attic of a building in Barcelona, waking up with views of the city, sitting down to enjoy a good reading on the sofa while it rains intensely outside, or having a sunbathe lying comfortably and cooling off with a good shower outdoors are moments of luxury whose achievement guided the interior design and production carried out by our team, Coblonal Interiorismo.
The apartment has a double room, a living-dining room with an open kitchen and a bathroom with three pieces that can be accessed from a small landing that distributes the whole. Regarding the distribution, we have arranged all the rooms, including the bathroom, with direct access to the outside. Windows that make the interior and the exterior interpenetrate continuously, being an open set with good weather and a shelter when bad weather requires it.
The living room is flooded by the exterior light of the large window that illuminates the set formed by the sofa, a set of coffee tables and a TV cabinet in black iron sheet of own design that integrates a bioethanol burner. The Tiptoe sofa of the Sancal house, three-seater and dark gray, is accompanied by a Studio Lamp by Handvark, under a painting by Jordi Alcaraz from the Miquel Alzueta Gallery in Barcelona. On a two-color carpet by Nani Marquina, three round tables with rounded shapes, model Galets de Habitat, are placed under a Faro Corfu model fan.
The kitchen is inserted into the same space, occupying the wall opposite the large exterior window. All appliances are integrated into a set of elegant furniture in black. The countertop and the back have been produced using the Storm model from Inalco, offering an organic look that spreads throughout the whole. In front of it, we find a high table designed by Coblonal Interiorismo with a black iron structure and an envelope of the same parquet wood that functions as a bar and extra work surface. It is illuminated by a pendant lamp Ikono L by Normann Copenhagen. The Dejà Vu metal stools from Magis combine with the handles of the kitchen furniture, the oven and the sink set, offering a chromatic balance of wood, metal and black peppered with the green of the Granny Smith apples used for the session.
The bedroom stands out for the simplicity of the shapes and the impact of the structure of the bed in black iron on the canopy. Its forms geometrize the space, in contrast to the white of the walls and the wardrobe located at your feet. Again, the low-height window works almost like a balcony that transmits the colors of the exterior to the interior. A pair of Muuto Leaf Table lamps alter the linearity of the set. The small one of them, on a beautiful table Yeah Wall of Menu of white color.
The bathroom, of minimum dimensions, enjoys light and external ventilation thanks to a window accessible from the shower. In this case, we have opted for gray and white tones to increase the sense of spaciousness. The furniture, with the porcelain sink inserted on a stainless steel base, is designed by Coblonal Interiorismo. On the toilet we placed an electric radiator model T20 of Antrax to give comfort and serve at the same time as towel rail.
On the outside, we have arranged an elegant transparent glass perimeter rail, only held by a few black iron supports. We thus minimize the visual impact of the railing and increase the external feeling, especially from inside the house. The outdoor furniture, designed by Coblonal Interiorismo and built from fruit collection pallets, offers ample space to sit, rest and gather friends to spend a beautiful evening outdoors. A chosen vegetation in large pots and a double shower installed on a panel of aged wood, complete a space that tries to make the most of its privileged location.
In this way, this small penthouse takes full advantage of its privileged location being a home full of small daily luxuries related to the outside.
