The Rocha Apartment located in the center of Barcelona, Spain was recently refurbished by the Colombo and Serboli Architecture practice (or CaSA) to reorganize the layout in a more efficient manner and bring the interior up to contemporary standards.
The apartment is on the sixth floor of an art nouveau building and the last floor was built in the 1960s so the designers recreated the spaces by removing the existing partitions. The client wanted four bedrooms and four new bathrooms were created, while the kitchen was moved to be integrated into the living area, thus leaving room for an additional bedroom.
The color palette combines micro-cement light grey on the floor, natural timber and several color shades in each bathroom, while the rest of the space is white. The terrace was closed two years ago and it has a roof and window frames made of aluminum which allow it to offer an overview of the surroundings, so it was considered as an extension of the living area in which the indoor space was treated as outdoors.
