The modernism of Barcelona

Modernism marked a time of changes in the conception of Catalan design and today it still remains in homes, objects and artistic creations.

An example of this is the last project of the architect Jofre Roca in cooperation with UPO Luce: the remodelling of an old apartment in the central street of Carme de Barcelona, right next to the Ramblas, which was built in 1861 under this current.

Bright, with open spaces and three courtyards, it is a modern house that has exposed many original elements, such as an incredible hydraulic floor, the walls made with old billows, the ceilings of beams and drawings in ceramics, and wooden elements.

To give full prominence to this recovery, the rest of the design is simple and sophisticated, and plays with elements of light-coloured materials and walls. The LE VITA lamp camouflages perfectly in this union, illuminating the master bedroom with the hanging and wall version, which goes from the ceiling to the side of the bed. Photos: Adrià Goula
