Small spaces are already tough. But a small space shared over two floors is even trickier. Take this Barcelona apartment — which is less than 600 square feet in total — that features two levels. But it's that very feature that actually makes the home so stunning.
With a renovation overseen by the team at Rifé Studio, a striking wrought-iron spiral staircase defines the space. On the upper level, natural light pours in from the terrace. The downstairs is sectioned into a living room, dining room, open kitchen area, and bedroom. The firm also made reference to the apartment's past by using pine wood for the floors and some furniture — a uniting touch.
The apartment, which is now more cozy than cramped, offers a tranquil getaway from the bustling Malasaña neighborhood.
