Marta and Jordi were delighted to live in Sarrià, a neighborhood so quiet that it looks like a town within Barcelona, ​​with streets and small squares, many green areas and modernist buildings. That is why, when they wanted to find a house in which to settle permanently with their two daughters, the idea of ​​looking outside it did not occur to them. Among the properties they visited, one especially caught their attention, but it caused them the great doubt of knowing if they could live there. The property in question was a commercial premises of 150 square meters that had been a candy store and was in quite bad condition.

To clarify their ideas they decided to go to the GDR study and ask them about the viability of the project. These experts in reforms made such a good proposal that they immediately bought the place to get to work. To adapt it to them, the first thing they did was tear down everything that could be demolished. In this process, upon removing the roof of the hurdle, they discovered beautiful vaults that had remained hidden and that they wanted, not only to integrate, but to become protagonists of the result.

Both furniture and finishes are simple and natural. They emphasize (from sobriety) the wood, the white color and the straight lines of the pieces made to measure or of Nordic style. The new spaces are open and fluid, connected by means of sliding barn-style doors. On the outside, the wood also makes an appearance, forming a patio at several heights that saves the great existing slope. Seeing the result, nobody would say that this house was not like this before.

    I had a similar situation. I soared for a long time over how to get out of the water dry. A friend said one decision, only something I rushed so abruptly to change everything that was acquired by back-breaking labor. Decided to be patient for now, to take a closer look? how it turns. What can I say? water wears away the stone. That's really, really so. I advise the author not to be sad. How is it in the song? "whole life ahead".
