Light and clarity in a reform in Sarriá

The architect Elisabet Guasch and the Estudi Nou studio have renovated a small house in the Sarrià district of Barcelona for a family of four.

The main refurbishment consisted in widening the entrance hall and unifying it with the living room and kitchen in order to make the most of the space and natural light. The result is an open space with a minimalist and very Mediterranean decoration in colours and details.

As natural light is important in this home, artificial light must fulfil the same function when the sun goes down, and that is why we find Faro Barcelona lights all over the house. Two KOMBO hanging lamps in beige finish dress the wooden kitchen worktop and some LED strips do it under the furniture. In the bedrooms, ORA and BEL wall lights, both in a white finish, are installed next to the beds to provide reading light. At the entrance we find the KAMEN wall lamp in beige and in the children’s room, apart from the wall lights mentioned, we also find the MARGOT hanging lamp. The small interior patio is also one of the spaces where the lighting of Faro Barcelona is present with the TASA ceiling lights and the dark grey FOC spotlight. The list is completed by the ALO fans in the double room and the living room, which, although they are not luminaires, provide comfort and wellbeing throughout the year and manage to maintain the warm style of the entire floor.
