Eixample is an area in Barcelona constructed in 19th and early 20th century. Some pioneering architects, including Antonio Gaudi, contributed for Eixample to have its characteristic appearance. One of them, Josep Domènech i Estapà, was the architect of this property with a delicate facade in 1908. Although the building listed as a heritage site, it was not utilised for some time.

Loox and DS Arquitectes tried to reconstruct the house, though having in mind the history of it. The furniture and the decorative elements are modern though fit smoothly with the overall classic space. They preserved the floors, a great mosaic hard to find nowadays, adding up to the already elegant apartment. Lastly, they created a fitted library in a whole wall somewhat a dream of mine for some time. Enjoy the rest of the pictures.
