Carrer Avinyo

Carrer Avinyo 34 is the refurbishment project by David Kohn Architects of a former piano nobile apartment in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter. Located at a major crossroads within the city, the apartment was stripped of its internal partitions to reveal the junction and connect living within the apartment to the streets beyond. The apartment is owned by two brothers that currently live in London and Hong Kong. The brief for David Kohn Architects was to design a holiday home for the brothers in the city they grew up in.

The city beyond the apartment walls is mirrored within through the individual rooms inside large pieces of furniture that appear to be small buildings. The new mosaic floor of the apartment is decorated with a triangular pattern that matches the geometry of the plan. The tile pattern is graded in colour from green at one end of the apartment to red at the other to differentiate the brother's private spaces. The tiles were made by Mosaics Marti who also supplied the products for Gaudi's projects in the city.
