hope you’re all enjoying a fun summer time! it’s getting crazy hot again in philadelphia… anyway, today I have one more post for the Spanish week, a beautiful apartment designed by barcelona-based architecture studio BAAS.
in case you don’t know why i am hosting a spanish week: this is a event inspired by the FIFA world cup team, spain!
BC House, Barcelona | Montserrat de Casanovas 105 – 08032 Barcelona
Here’s the description from BAAS:
” Turó Park is one of Barcelona’s few remaining green lungs in the wake of the city’s construction boom during the second half of the 20th century. This haven goes almost unnoticed hidden amongst the built-up city landscape, yet still retains the charm and elegance of the great park it once was. ”
” … Just next to the water-lily pond, the redevelopment takes place in one of the first three buildings the renowned architect Francesc Mitjans designed within the Eduard Marquina gardens. Back then, the park encompassed his proposal and the residences basked in the midday sun, with bedrooms occupying what is now the open space. Population growth and property speculation have meant that later constructions stand very close to the daytime areas of the original buildings, giving the sensation that the latter have turned their backs on the park.”
