Dewan Architects + Engineers

Refurbishment of a hospital into a residential apartment building, located in the center of the Eixample district in Barcelona, an area full of architecturally diverse buildings. The number 41 in Ausias March dates from 1895. The apartments’ sizes are between 64 square meters and 232 square meters, and they allocate 1 to 3 bedrooms. The building has a great display of communal areas on offer, ranging from a spa to a gym on the ground floor.

The interior design preserves and restores traditional architectural elements such as the Catalan vault in the ceilings and custom tiles on the floors, as well as opening up the spaces to make the most of the brightness and the pleasant weather of Barcelona. The overall white palette is broken by Le Corbusier ‘s colour palette up with interesting features like bespoke shelved walls which divide the spaces without closing them up.
