Nestled in the heart of Barcelona, Spain, the Girona St. Apartment is a masterclass in architectural reinvention by the talented team at Raúl Sánchez Architects. Housed in a grand 19th-century estate, this apartment cleverly harnesses the luminosity and ventilation of its dual-facing location.
This unique asset guided its remarkable 2023 redesign, manifesting in an extensive walnut façade that navigates the apartment’s 21 meters (68.9 feet) length. The interior is an intriguing blend of collective and private spaces, each imbued with their own distinct character and aesthetic. From the cozy zones bathed in light from the interior courtyard’s original blue-tinted windows to the personal rooms concealed behind the walnut facade, the Girona St. Apartment is a testament to thoughtful and innovative design.
Welcome to the Gallery House, a modern architectural marvel nestled in the heart of Spain’s wine country, La Pobla de Cérvoles, Lleida. This unique property, designed by the renowned Raúl Sánchez Architects in 2019, is more than just a house—it’s a fusion of a family home, a boutique hotel, and an art gallery.
Situated near the Mas Blanch i Jové winery, the Gallery House stands as a testament to the region’s rich artistic and viticultural heritage. The house’s design is a masterclass in modern architecture, featuring a clear division established by a cross in the plan and section, which opens four large windows on each facade, connecting the house with the picturesque landscape.
