Old carpenter,s workshop

Poble Sec - Barcelona

When dealing with the refurbishment of this old carpenter’s workshop placed at Barcelona’s Poble Sec neighbourhood, the main goal of FFWD Arquitects was to set up this space for inhabitation while the main constructive components were mantained. They gave charm and singularity to the space.

The existing valuable components which we wanted to restore formed the upper shell of the project: walls and roof. Owing to that the floor would be the new constructed element in charge of the space configuration. It becomes a magma that fills the whole base of the space. It creates open areas that are organized with the levels and objects generated.

In some of the main areas generated, space is organized with the use of closed boxes. They contain the more private uses of the house, such as bathrooms - where you can find Javea washbasins - and dressing rooms. With its positioning, bedroom spaces are also generated, remaining separated from the daytime areas of the house.
