    Refurbished Holiday Apartment by Colombo and Serboli Architecture // Barcelona.

    28th July

    Colombo and Serboli Architecture have transformed a neglected and previously poorly planned interior into an attractive holiday home.

Faced with a tight budget, clever solutions were required to create an attractive, contemporary holiday atmosphere.

    2nd July

    It’s always a tricky thing, negotiating a contemporary brief with an existing heritage space. While many designers might obsessively refashion a square peg for a round hole, revealing as little evidence of this process as possible, Spanish architect Francisco Javier Eguiluz takes the opposite approach. Instead, he expresses some of the incongruous quirks that result from this process. Dog legged floor finishes, new rooms that straddle over two existing rooms and the deliberate expression of demolished walls. This is a space that does not try to paper over its past.
