MCSM Apartment, Barcelona, Spain | Cadaval and Sola-Morales
Located in a typical chamfer-corner of the Barcelona’s Cerdà urban block, the apartment has spectacular views to the Sagrada Familia, the sea and the new Barcelona’s towers, and great orientation. The original apartment responded to the characteristic chamfered layout, with several rooms located in the front façade and a few linear smaller spaces next to an interior patio. The project aims to transform the previous layout by opening to the light, and therefore clearing up the space in the façade. By creating a double ring of public spaces parallel to the front area, and clarifying the organization of rooms and services next to the patio by rethinking the corridor, the light, views and clearness become the major protagonist of the apartment. The services are all organized on a solid blackboard object that operates as the node between the public and private spaces.
