Diagonal Avenue Apartment in Barcelona by YLAB Arquitectos

Discover the Diagonal Avenue apartment by YLAB Arquitectos, located in the traditional Barcelona Ensanche area. The design is mixture of  typical traditional aspects with the modern and industrial design.

The design looks for the contrast and tension between the traditional elements, predominantly light, and the contemporary elements, dark and powerful, that seem to be inserted in the original space. The deliberately sharp combination of contemporary design and the old structure creates a very individual space full of contrasts and tensions. The apartment tells the tale of two different periods and samples of craftsmanship combined in the same space. – from the architects
