Last June, Barcelona Design Week 2018 was abuzz with art exhibitions, lectures, and events that centered on the modern excellence of the architecture and design. Among the displays of architectural innovation: a Barcelona apartment, remodeled by Spanish-German architectural firm YLAB Arquitectos. The project, which was open to the public, was a remodel of a dark six-room apartment in Barcelona's picturesque Vila de Gràcia district. The original design was a mess of partitions, so YLAB opted to change the structure, opening it up to connect with an inner courtyard.
The new L-shaped layout, measuring 960-square-feet, consists of various zones that allow for maximum flexibility. For instance, a kitchen-dining area can be transformed into a washing zone, a breakfast zone, or a wine zone (oh the luxury) depending on how the cabinets are used.
