Exploring the nomadic lifestyle of the 21st century, Spanish architecture studio Miel Arquitectos and Studio P10 recently completed an apartment in Barcelona creating two equally balanced spaces pivoted by a central communal area.
Focusing on the basic requirements of Sleep, Work, Relaxation & Hygiene the architects created two independent units each housing four internal zones. Each units in the Salva46 apartment block share access to the central common space which contains the kitchen, dining and social functions.
Ecology, restoration and up-cycling are all central to the theme, with the recovery and replacement of the original hydraulic mosaic tiles. The kitchen, which had a past life near Sitges, was adapted and re-used, complementing the rich patchwork of mosaic carpet. Relaxed furniture pieces complete the space, combining a balance of timber, stone, metal and structural elements.
