About Bright Apartment in Barcelona
The Barcelona Project: Oleg Klodt and Anna Agapova Restore Casa Jasinta Ruix
Built in 1904 by architect Ramon Viniolas, Casa Jasinta Ruix was the focus of a restoration project headed by Oleg Klodt and Anna Agapova. The current owners of the building were eager to maintain the property’s original characteristics while also interpreting its historic heritage.
The Interior Design: Meandering Corridors, Lofty Ceilings, and a Beautiful Mosaic
The meandering corridors and lofty ceilings of Casa Jasinta Ruix became the center of attention for the interior design. A mosaic was chosen to accent the ceilings, creating an abundance of light. During the restoration process, an original Monier ceiling was discovered – inspiring the team to restore other antique and vintage features such as the locks and door handles of the building.
The Result: A Spanish-Inspired Apartment That’s Both Classical and Modern
The combination of classical features, the beauty of the mosaic, and the minimalist touches resulted in a very Spanish-inspired, yet modern apartment – a touching homage to Barcelona and its heritage.
