Why Casamona loves this apartment.
This apartment is located on the first floor of a narrow building between two other buildings. The building, conditioned by the characteristics of the plot, is clearly developed in the longitudinal axis, giving rise to housing with two clearly differentiated areas-corresponding to each facade-and intermediate spaces that rest on two inner courtyards. Built during the 1930s, the building consists of a total of nine floors (Ground Floor + 8). This height, above the usual in the Eixample district, is determined by the greater amplitude of the street Aragón. On this street, the main façade is projected, which despite being just over 4 meters wide, stands out for its formalization in overlapping semicircular galleries, culminating with a dome topped with a needle. Of Noucentiste style, the lines of forged with subtle moldings are remarked, and the windows are crowned in the form of a semicircular arch. Although the width of the building conditions the zone of the apartments, on the other hand it also allows knocking down the interior walls due to they have not structural function. The metallic beams that support the “Catalan Volt” rest directly on the party walls and in the stairwell, thus giving rise to infinity interior wall configurations. Taking into account the orientation in the southeast-northeast axis, as well as the existence of a terrace accessible to the interior of the block, it is proposed to distribute the house in two distinct halves: a large daytime area, facing the main façade, which contains living area, dining room and kitchen, and a night area reserved for the interior, looking for the tranquility of the courtyard and leaning on the inner courtyards of the building. A continuous wall of solid billet, transverse, across the whole house, relegates and gives continuity to both areas.
