Barcelona Industrial Loft

This spectacular loft apartment is a refurbishment of an old carpenter’s workshop located in Barcelona’s Poble Sec neighbourhood. Designed by Spanish architectural studio FFWD, the team defined that the main goal was to set up the space for habitation while preserving the existing structural components, and its charm and singularity. They restored the building´s brick and stone walls, the wooden beams in the ceiling, and covered the floor with a concrete lining. The property has multiple light openings, and the inner patio is connected to the main spaces of the house. The singularity of the house lies in the combination of materials and styles, with exposed bricks beautifully complemented with concrete finishes and wooden furniture.
