Located in the neighbourhood of Sant Gervasi – Galvany, the building is a reflection of this upper-class district. Today, it has conserved its original character, now completed by a lively nightlife and great variety of restaurants.
An exclusive building with only few owners was built in the 1930s, replacing the famous casa Llorach. Designed by Rubió i Tudurí, one of the most renowned Barcelona’s architects, it distinguishes with its rationalist style.
A part of former Isabel Llorach’s residence, the apartment is located on the 4thfloor, along with just one more flat. A small lobby, decorated with high-quality materials, forms common zone.Entering, you reach a vast foyer that gives access to different areas of the property. A long spacious corridor leads inside the apartment and can be adjusted to your personal needs. In the end of this corridor, there are two bedrooms and a bathroom between them, altogether forming one of the night zones.
In front of the entrance area, divided with a full-glass door, you find the heart of this property: the living and dining space, with an open-plan kitchen, all in Matimex, altogether occupying 50 m2. Large windows and two French doors provide the apartment with a great amount of natural light, since it is enclosed around a vast terrace that opens up to the Muntaner street. Going through a small pantry space, we reach another night zone – a large, spacious suite. The first area that belongs to it is a multifunctional space that can be adapted according to your plans – for example as an office or a library. The double door on the left leads to a large bathroom, fully equipped and decorated with high-quality materials and details. This suite of 26 m2 also has a walk-in closet. Entirely divided from the rest of the property, the spacious suite gives a sense of intimacy, while the French doors leading to the terrace provide it with natural light in the morning.
The apartment’s interior is not divided in a common way – the designer put the emphasize on the spatial fluidity. Bathed in bright colours and light, the spaces are accented with black furniture and other elements. This contrasting look is completed by use of materials such as marble and wood, giving the apartment a cosy sensation, but without diminishing its elegance and opulence.
Entirely rehabilitated, the property maintained its original, aristocratic character, but nowadays is adapted to modern necessities – it has been provided with central gas heating and air conditioning, as well as high-end equipment.
This intimate building has a great story. It was built in 1930s in the place of famous Llorach house, which was constructed in the beginning of 20thcentury according to Puig i Cadafalch’s project. The old house was demolished by Isabel Llorach, the heiress of Llorach’s fortune, known for her great influence on cultural and social life of Barcelona. It was her who ordered building of what we can see now – a rationalist-style house designed by Rubió i Tudurí, an architect responsible for projects of many Barcelona’s gardens and buildings, including the Montjuic gardens prepared for the World Exhibition in 1929. The simple rationalist style was a contrast to the luxurious and lavish houses of Sant Gervasi. It is also worth-mentioning that the only element left of the old Llorach house – the four modernist columns made of porphyry marble – are now located in the new building’s foyer.
This is an incredible opportunity to acquire a part of Barcelona’s history in form of designer’s apartment in exclusive neighbourhood.
