A chromatic division – Spain

The Borrell apartment is located on the first floor of a building built in 1925 in the Nova Esquerra district, Barcelona. It has 4 doors per landing, thus transforming the typical typology of a sequenced house into half floors. The structure of the house is made up of load-bearing walls and is distributed around two patios, with partitions that leave a corridor on one side and small rooms on the other.
Reimagined by AMOO, the project intends to blur the hallway, trying to achieve a recognisable yet permeable plan. Also, multiple cross visuals that broaden the flat’s sense of depth.
A shoring is set out in the load-bearing wall, connecting the living room to the new kitchen, and the rest of the partitions are demolished. A new functional green stripe links the apartment from end to end: it begins as a piece of furniture in the hall, with counters and cabinets, it contains the two doors of access to the main room and the bathroom, and opens towards the kitchen, defined only by the area of the refrigerator, an upper shelf and the low volume of the bar, favouring the use of the corridor as a cooking space. Having exceeded the load-bearing wall, the green stripe chromatically divides the area between the living room and the dining room, containing installation elements and assuming pre-existing irregularities in the floor’s main structure. The gallery remains a free and integrated space, while it also incorporates the small balcony with a large six-leaf sliding balcony.
