About The Flat Above the Boqueria Market

Interior Design and Architecture in Barcelona: A 52m2 Apartment in the Center of the City

This 52m2 (560 sq ft) apartment is situated in the heart of Barcelona, just next to the Rambla. On top of the iconic Mercat de la Boqueria food market, the flat enjoys spectacular views of the Collserola and Tibidabo hills.

Aesthetic Simplicity and Openness

After a series of alterations, the apartment has been transformed with the focus on achieving spacial simplicity and openness. The functional core of the flat includes the entrance, bathroom, kitchen and two large rooms, one facing the street and one facing the market. Both rooms have equal access to the core facilities.

Adaptable Space

The space can be adapted to different needs, with four sliding wall/doors creating distinct areas as required. The two large rooms can be used as one flat or two individual flats, and have the capacity to be subdivided into two separate spaces.

Embracing the Past

Original plaster and colors were uncovered during the renovation process, prompting the decision to restore them to achieve the desired unfinishing feeling. The exposed walls surfaces have become a reminder of the past, with the raw stone and plaster in contrast to the new sleek materials such as the contemporary bathroom, kitchen and micro cement flooring. The wooden double doors also enhance the original features.
