Arquitectura y Diseño · Girona 2 · June 2018
The magazine Arquitectura y Diseño publishes "Back and forth ", a report on the integral project of interior architecture that the vilablanch studio has carried out for the promoter Bonavista Development with the aim of transforming a cataloged modernist building, work of the architect Enric Sagnier from Barcelona, in a promotion of exclusive homes.
After receiving the order and analyzing it in detail, vilablanch was very clear that the building of Girona 2 had to be restored by bringing back the spirit of Sagnier to the fullest. Returning this emblematic modernist building from the heart of Barcelona's Eixample to the original essence of Enric Sagnier's project was a great challenge. For this reason, vilablanch recovered the original blueprints of the building that allowed him to understand the origin of the building, to project a distribution that gave back the spatiality portrayed by Sagnier in 1897, and to endow the houses with finishes that revived the original look & feel.
