Penthouse in Eixample by Veronica Mimoun Studio
Penthouse in Eixample is a modernist apartment located in Barcelona, Spain, redesigned in 2022 by Veronica Mimoun Studio.
Penthouse located in the Eixample Barcelones in a modenist building. It highlights a 50m2 square terrace with south orientation, original recovered mosaic pavements and uncovered ceilings recovering the original constructive element of the “Volta Catalana”.
The program consists of 4 bedrooms, one of them en suite, a family room, three bathrooms, living room, dining room and kitchen. In addition to two very enjoyable terraces.
Throughout the house, the carpentry is all solid wood, maintains the original design, although it has been replaced and made all over again, as well as windows and balconies on the second floor.
On the second floor, both balconies and windows have been made of aluminum with the highest performance.
A large mirror covers the entire wall to get that feeling of infinity since it is strategically placed to reflect the entire corridor and the balcony in the back.
A lacquered cabinet with two drawers serves as a space to “empty the pockets” and a coat rack of the firm Menu on the wall.
Guess Bedroom 1
It highlights a fantastic paper where the headboard stands, Wolsey Stars from Cole&Son.
Custom made bed and headboard with Crevin fabric.
Decorative cushions with Roy Orbison fabric by Zeconzeta.
Bedside table by Kartell model Max Beam in blue to match the headboard.
At the foot of the bed, natural linen plaid with dark blue beading to match the headboard.
Decorative lamp Bolita from Marset brings a touch of warmth and allows you to enjoy its relaxing lighting.
In it we highlight a wonderful mirror by &Tradition made of brass and placed in front of the staircase that leads to the duplex.
The Pyramid bench by Hay, allows the foyer to be uncluttered and is crowned by Flos IC F1 floor lamp in brass, designed by Michael Anastassiades.
In the design of this bathroom we weighed the need of storage capacity. On one side there is a cabinet with pull-out drawers for dirty clothes and all lacquered.
The bathroom furniture was made of natural oak wood with a matte varnish and top in Corian material. The washbasin is from Bathco and a Rovira faucet. A backlit mirror gives the bathroom a more sophisticated ambience.
In considering the tiling of the walls, two different sized pieces of Rice Natural Lux by Marazzi were chosen.

Guest Bedroom 2
Bringing an air of drama, in the center of the bedroom a Foscarini chandelier, Spokes 3 in black.
In this bedroom we placed a washable Vescom wallpaper on the main wall.
A modern sleeper sofa allows this bedroom to be used as both a study space and a guest bedroom.
The design of the closet doors offers a fun perspective from any point in the bedroom with its panel combining vertical and horizontal stripes.
As it could not be missing in a room to study, we find the George Desk by Skagerak with drawer and the Harbour Side dining chair by Menu. On the study table, I.Cono lamp by Vibia in white.
Next we find the family room.
Taking advantage of the wonderful colors in pink, lilac and green of the hydraulic pavement, we matched a Roche Bobois sofa in violet tones and a vintage desk that we completed with the Gas chair by Stua.
As a coffee table, the Androgyne lounge table by Menu with dark stained oak base and top in Kunis Bresccia Stone.
This space leads to a third guest bedroom and the Master Bedroom.
Guest Bedroom 3
On the main wall of this bedroom we installed a wallpaper in blue tones to evoke the sky of Barcelona and its stamp on this duplex.
It is crowned by the fabulous Dome lamp by Bover. To one side, a rattan chair from Sika.
The Hay nightstands add a touch of elegance in their burgundy red color and on them rest the iconic Flowerpot V3 from &Tradition in stone blue, creating an elegant ensemble.

We lined the wall of the headboard with the wonderful Phillip Jeffries Gold Coast Silk wallpaper in sunset Orange, which brings an incomparable warmth to the bedroom.
On the front wall, three antique mirrors bought in Paris antique shops, Louis XIV style.
On the sides of the bed, C Ball lamps by Blux in gold match perfectly with the bedside tables in walnut finish.
Wool rug with burgundy trim and cushions with Mamounia fabric from Güell Lamadrid and Eric Clapton fabric from Zeconzeta like the one used in the plaid.
In the bathroom we installed a bathtub and covered the entire wall with the Signs piece from 41zero42.
As for the lighting, we used Flos Easy Kap spotlights and placed perimeter lighting that bathes the walls and achieves a stimulating effect.
Custom-made backlit mirror.
Through the stairs covered in Solidfloor Eiffel oak parket we access the upper level where we find the living room, dining room, kitchen, guest bathroom and two terraces, one in the kitchen area and the other with access from the living room.
We uncovered the ceiling of the living room to recover the Catalan vault and this work was also done in the dining room and kitchen.
We conceived the living room as a large meeting space for family and friends so we made a sofa with custom poufs designed by Veronica Mimoun Studio in Crevin’s Twin fabric, on a restored original antique carpet from Turkey.
Coffee tables and side tables by Roche Bobois as well as the TV cabinet.
Two Utrecht armchairs by Cassina and a Champagne pouf designed by Nor11 complete the space where long conversations will take place.
Track lighting by Flos and Atollo decorative lamp by Oluce.
Through the living room we access the dining room.
In it we have made a custom bench in natural oak backlit with storage and shelves also with LED lighting. The mattress with Güell Lamadrid fabric in green tones evokes a return to nature.
On the wall, spectacular Zellige wallpaper by Martyn Lawrence Bullard for Cole&Son.
Table by Ethnicraft, chairs by Menu and Speers lamps in copper by Blux complete a dining room in which we opened the existing opening so that it would have direct communication with the kitchen and benefit from the light that enters through the kitchen terrace.
Already in the kitchen, the space is nourished by an island of considerable dimensions with a large storage capacity.
The materials used for the countertops, both Corian and porcelain of the firm Inalco.
Koki stools by Desalto, Gaggenau wine cooler and Blanco faucets.
For lighting, Easy Kap spotlights by Flos and Birdie decorative lamp by Ingo Maurer.
We enlarged the opening of the balcony to the terrace where breakfast is taken on the Palissade Cone table by Hay and Enea chairs by Triconfort.
On the opposite side and facing the sea, we find the large terrace that serves as a lounge and summer dining room.
With furniture by Kettal, the Vimini and Bitta collections take on a special role and invite you to enjoy a terrace bathed by an impeccable architecture and incredible views of Barcelona, from the sea and its old quartier to the catedral Santa Maria del Mar.
The tones, all pastel to create a space of sweetness and elegance that invites to long gatherings under an inimitable sunset.
Comfort is an essential requirement and it is through this natural aesthetic that we achieve a harmony between the interior and exterior of the house, without forgetting the beauty of its elements.
