Anna and Eugeni Bach refurbished this apartment in Barcelona and installed a mezzanine level with a hanging desk. Before the renovation, the apartment was divided into many small rooms separated with narrow corridors. In order to bring more natural light and to create an open-plan space, architects removed the partition walls between the kitchen, dining and living room. They rearranged this space and created a new living and dining room, a kitchen and a work space. In the main living area, the walls are painted white, and the floor is covered with rectangular and hexagonal shaped clay tiles. The kitchen is installed in a white wooden cube which is located at the back of the property. On top of it, there’s a work space with a wooden desk fixed to the ceiling with white metal wires. Since the flat is small but has high ceilings, architects wanted to use the free space as much as possible, so they came up with the idea of the white cube with a kitchen inside and a workspace on top of it.
