This apartment is a random active weekend residence in the Barcelona city. The owner is living outside of the metropolis and comes few times a month, alone or with her husband, to spend a weekend in the city. The goal of the project is to make most of the small 22 m sq. apartment according to the client’s needs. The main complaint was the lack of light and a lack of positive feeling about the space, especially kitchen. The budget was restricted.

The design is driven by the location and the use of the apartment. It is enhanced by common warm Catalan colors and vocational feel ambiance typical for Barcelona city. The terrace was extended as a living area by the opening of a long window above the kitchen working area. Wood decking and planted climber plants behind the perimeter bench-storage make terrace a beloved place to stay during the long outdoor season in Barcelona. Cooking activity is now accompanied by the view on the terrace. Now it can be a dining room, that allows maintaining a contact with guests, who came to have a dinner on a terrace. For the other days, the movable bar table by the cooking area allows enjoying the meal by your own of for two people.
The niche in the complete wall furniture running through the apartment is a right place to read with your coffee facing the terrace when the weather is not suitable for staying outside.
