Reform of a House Between Walls by DATAAE
located in Sant Feliu de Llobregat, Barcelona, Spain. Reform of a House Between Walls is a minimalist interior design project located in Barcelona, Spain, designed by DATAAE. The intervention is based on the preservation of the original composition, volume, and structure of the home. Selective demolition of the interior partitions and the staircase made way for a new distribution of programs that suited the needs of the inhabitants, which sought to improve natural light and conservation of energy. The new distribution is characterized by being more diaphanous, built with light systems and with the predominant use of wood. The ground floor is settled into a unique environment that welcomes the living room, dining room, and kitchen. By demolishing a part of the floor, a double space is created to provide additional height and natural overhead lighting. The casting of this flooring has no effect on the structure since all of the original wooden beams were maintained.

Casa Sant Feliu (2004-2007) by dataAE located in Sant Feliu de Llobregat, Barcelona, Spain. The project is a single-family home and a two-story house in the old quarter of Sant Feliu de Llobregat. Paying attention to the northern orientation of the existing garden and the need to distribute the program on three floors, the organization of the program that is proposed offers a patio-terrace in the center of the plan that makes it possible to illuminate and ventilate the interior of the home correctly. All of the spaces are organized in lateral bands of services that concentrate the “servant spaces” with a distribution fixed in time in order to make it possible to free up the “served” spaces with an open and flexible distribution.
