Passatge Cantí

How to remodel a space and make it your perfect home:

Our client, a couple from the United Kingdom, was ideally looking for an old apartment, even in disrepair, but with character. The main objective was to create their own home from scratch.

They contact us and Passatge Cantí became one of our first projects. When we found the space, it was love at first sight. The apartment was part of an old building of the late nineteenth century, and had the charisma of traditional houses of the time. Very high ceilings, large wooden beams, a gallery full of light and a window that brought you closer to the life of the neighborhood. The flat, of 65m2, is located in a “passatge” (passage), characteristic and pleasant old alleys that exist, above all, in the traditional neighborhoods, such as Poblenou.

For this project, we partnered with Anna Alegre, a renowned architect. The intention was to get a better use of the space and create a new layout of the apartment. The process consisted in eliminating a room, the kitchen and the corridor. Currently the apartment has improved its circulation and distribution of light. In addition, it has a visually attractive division of the area and allows various hidden storage spaces. Functional and charming. The optimization of the space allowed us to play with the place give it back its life. The apartment has two rooms equipped with a private bathroom, as the clients wanted. Now, they can comfortably enjoy this vacation home together with their family and friends. Check it out:
