Co-working and Co-Living can’t be described as a trend anymore, but these concepts are today’s reality not only in urban areas, however, few projects named as Co-Living With Luxury have been published so far.
A few years back, Casa Decor took place at Casa Burés and it was by far one of the most memorable exhibitions in town. I remember being in awe by the interior architecture and splendor of that building. Shortly after, the building, which is one of Barcelona’s most significant listed Modernism gems got closed.
Today the interior design project by Estudio Vilablanch and TDB Arquitectura not only preserves the building’s structure but also respects light, space, habitability, adding high-quality materials.
Constructed between 1900 and 1905, Casa Burés takes its name from its first owner, Francesc Burés, owner of Industrias Burés, one of Spain’s most successful textile companies. The idea of rehabilitating historical buildings through a conscious (and luxurious) communitarian lifestyle is a well-studied niche concept. 16 apartments count with common areas and include a swimming pool, spa, gym, wine cellar, and event space.
