Past meets present in Barcelona

This apartment is located in the Eixample Esquerra district of Barcelona. One of the most interesting aspects of this projects is how the architects managed to preserve and integrate the previous structural elements (ceilings, floors and woodwork) into the new design. The result is an harmonious encounter between past and present in a space flooded by the warm Mediterranean light. 
In particular, how they restored and used the existing mosaico hidraulico, which is a characteristic floor invented in the South of France in the XIX and used in Barcelona until 1960s. In fact, in order to gain continuity, they arranged the tiles present in situ in long  stripes and combined them together to tied up the space.
