Rocha Apartment is a holiday apartment designed by Colombo and Serboli Architecture, it covers an area of 170m² + 10m² of terrace and is located in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.
The brief was to transform this neglected, very badly distributed apartment into an attractive holiday home. The property is located in an extremely central street, right between Plaza Catalunya y Plaza Universitat, on the sixth floor of an art nouveau building.
Nonetheless, this last floor was built in the ’60 and lacked of the charm of the rest of the building.
In order to meet the brief, spaces had to be re-thought completely and all existing partition had to be demolished.
The budget was tight and clever solutions were required to complete the needs providing an attractive, contemporary holiday atmosphere.
