Absolute respect for existing elements
Interior design and restoration project that transforms the main floor of Casa Burés - which had been the residence of the Burés family - in two impressive 500m2 residences, where the originals elements have been recovered and enhanced.
vilablanch studio has made the interior design and restoration project of a group of high standing dwellings in the interior of Casa Burés. It’s an unprecedented residential project in Barcelona, which involves 26 luxury dwellings from 120 to 500 meters squared, whose architectonic restoration has the firm of Juan Trias de Bes studio- TDB Arquitectura.
The project includes the definition of the interior design and restoration project of four typologies of houses (loft, residences, flat and penthouses), specifically though for the public objective which they are addressed. Here, we present you the interior design and restoration project made for the residences.
The interior design and restoration project that the team of the vilablanch has made in Casa Burés includes the projection of two unique floors in Barcelona, located in the principal floor of the modernist building. Two jewels of huge patrimonial value, with palatial spaces of proportions and unique finishes in Barcelona that have precious architectonic and decorative elements: magnificent frescos on the wall and ceilings with landscapes and bucolic scenes, ceilings and walls with unique moldings art decó style, leaded glass with unique polychrome and woodworks rich in moldings and details.
The livings, from 450 to 500 meters squared, have an independent entrance from the lobby, which has access from the majestic stone stairs. Both principals have a big hall, an impressive living room, a closed kitchen, a magnificent dining room, a bedroom suite with bathroom and a walk in closet, 2 or 3 secondary bedrooms with their respective bathrooms and courtesy bathroom.
The challenge that vilablanch studio had to face while developing the project consisted in turning a noble, aristocratic and majestic space in a house for an actual, sophisticated and enlightened family that wants to live in a unique place in Barcelona. This was achievable thanks to elegance and sophistication in the interior design that recovered and enhanced the valuable architectonic and decorative elements that were part of the history of modernism, and that are accompanied by pieces of furniture and objects equally refined, but serene, not too ornamented and simple; light pieces, that flow through the space and nearly touch.
The kitchen is conceived has a functional and technological element, made with innovative materials from bulthaup, as aluminum and steel, but in different elegant shades. The bathrooms are designed with contemporary elements with soft shapes, rounded and novel materials, which respect the spirit of the space.
