Barcelona Style: La Ricarda

This place is one the most well kept secrets in Barcelona.

In 1949, the Gomis Bertrand family decided to contact the Catalan architect Antoni Bonet, who was living in Buenos Aires, to put him in charge of their summer and weekend home in an idyllic place next to the sea and surrounded by pines. Bonet was directing the works from a distance, that is what I have enjoyed a second time: a modular house that spreads out on the land, being part of the environment and under an incredible roof of catalan vault that seems to float among the pines.

The glass building enclosure mixed with the ceramic lattice creates spaces with plenty of natural light and one of the highlight when visiting is getting to see the original furniture, which was carefully thought by the architect, giving you the perfect 60s vibe.

The second Kinfolk gathering was done there (and that’s how I found out about this place) which I missed but La Ricarda (1949-63) is open for reserved groups, and who knows, I always might come up with an interesting event to organize myself..G, x

How about some extra inspiration?

  1. If you hold an event there Gudy, just make sure that you give me plenty of notice and I’ll hop on a plane. Love it, a beautiful piece of architecture.
