Architects Carolina Cunill, of The Hall Studio, and Manu Pagés have completely refurbished a 115m2 home in Barcelona's Gracia district.
To do so, they have created a large open-plan space that houses the kitchen, dining room and study area. The latter, in turn, is separated by sliding doors. The original structure of the house, which has an interior courtyard, has helped to divide the spaces to make the most of natural light and ventilation.
With the aim of creating a pleasant and warm space, organic and natural materials have been used and the original ones, such as the brick of some of the walls and wooden elements, have been left exposed. The warmth of the materials, which create a pleasant atmosphere and turn the house into a peaceful family home, has been reinforced by the Faro Barcelona MINI MALLORCA fans installed in the large dining room, kitchen and children's room. Ceiling fans help to create comfortable spaces and regulate the temperature in the hottest seasons. A great solution to combine with natural ventilation that is perfectly integrated into the design. Faro Barcelona has also used OSLO wall lamps in the corridors, which are made of plaster and provide light from above and below. They allow a more homogeneous illumination of the passageway area of this refurbished house, also with energy efficiency in mind.
