Finding a bright and spacious apartment in El Born is not an easy task. We came upon a neglected 120m2 corner apartment on Calle Canvis Vells, on the 3rd floor of a building without elevator, but with loads of potential. We knew once we changed the exisiting layout and opened up the space, the large living room with 3 windows and 2 balconies with stunning views of the Santa Maria del Mar cathedral would be the focal point.
We chose to make two double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms, office space, and a spacious living room/dining room with open kitchen and island. We completely changed the layout, creating two bedrooms both facing the interior patio, for more tranquility and privacy, and taking full advantage of the abundance of natural light in the exterior part of the apartment, which used to be divided into 4 small rooms, to make a spacious living/dining room with open kitchen as the heart of the house and a perfect spot to gaze upon the Santa Maria del Mar cathedral.
