Why Casamona loves this apartment.
The apartment is located on the first floor of a narrow building betweentwo other buildings. The building, conditioned by the characteristics of theplot, is clearly developed in the longitudinal axis, giving rise to housingwith two clearly differentiated areas-corresponding to each facade-andintermediate 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, isdetermined 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 offorged with subtle moldings are remarked, and the windows arecrowned in the form of a semicircular arch. Although the width of thebuildingconditions the zoneof theapartments, on the other hand it alsoallowsknocking downthe interior wallsdue tothey have notstructuralfunction. The metallic beams that support the “Catalan Volt” rest directlyon 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, aswell as the existence of a terrace accessible to the interior of the block, it isproposed to distribute the house in two distinct halves: a large daytimearea, facing the main façade, which contains living area, dining room and kitchen, and a night area reserved for the interior, looking for thetranquility of the courtyard and leaning on the inner courtyards of thebuilding. A continuous wall of solid billet, transverse, across the wholehouse, relegates and gives continuity to both areas.
