Vivienda en Sant Joan is a private apartment designed by Egue y Seta and is located in Passeig de Sant Joan, Barcelona, Spain.
Can the layout of a house be improved by eliminating unnecessary partitions while maintaining the original number of rooms?
Can you spatially communicate contiguous (public and private) spaces without affecting the privacy of the tenants?
Can you justapose various textures and finishes while maintaining a “light” visual atmosphere. One such that would work as blank canvas ready to receive the decorative contributions of future inhabitants of the space?
The renovation project of the housing unit in Sant Joan gives a convincing answer to all the above questions. And its result, comparable to an endless number of examples due to its typology and similar dimensions, confirms that design and the experience of the interior architects, are not at all incompatible with tight budgets or smaller homes.
