Retaining old tiles is on trend in Barcelona! I can tell just from the tiles if an apartment is located in this city. There are not many left with the entire flooring in good shape, I am very lucky to live in one of those where I have different tiles in all rooms.
Spanish architects Nook have been have renovating a small apartment in Barcelona’s gothic quarter, leaving original decorative floor tiles.
The project called ROC3 is the last out of three they have been working on, all different apartments on a single building in Barcelona.
They have followed the same conceptual design in all three projects, enhancing the original structure, with a special focus in the floors and tiles being able now to follow the first room distribution.
