Poble Sec – An Area on the Rise!
Poble Sec is an up-and-coming area in high demand. In the city centre but next to the sea and the green space of Montjuïc, it has great residential appeal. The rising desirability of the neighborhood as a place to live and invest in is supported by its easy accessibility from main road routes and excellent public transport links.
Poble Sec is also becoming known as one of the gastromic hubs of Barcelona. There are 5 restaurants from the famous Adriá brothers, all of which have been awarded a Michelin star. Trendy Ikibana is also in this area with its tempting fusion of Japanese and Brazilian cuisine. Away from these dizzy heights we also have a wealth of smaller restuarants and bars offering the very best in local and international flavours. Whatever your favourite food may be you will not be disappointed in Poble Sec.
The Building – A Blend of Past and Present
The building is located on a quiet residential street in the higher part of Poble Sec. It is a modernist building, constructed in 1936. It will be restored and renovated to create luxury apartments that integrate the best of the old with the latest smart-home technology. Expert architects and craftsmen will preserve and highlight the building’s original features while creating modern living environments that are cozy, fresh and functional.
The Philosophy Behind the Preservation
We were lucky to be able to hear the views of the Rem Koolhaas, an architect whose specialty, among others, is the preservation of beatiful buildings.”What we [architects] offer the present is memory.” He tells us. “The beautiful thing about preservation is you begin with something that already exists and therefore is already local. By definition, a preservation project is an homage to earlier cultures and mentalities to which you can add a new dimension, a new function, a new beauty or appeal.”
Luxury Apartments That Fit Your Lifestyle
These adaptable apartments are made to meet your needs. The property will include a range of options to provide you with everything from a city pied-à-terre to a full-time home.
At this time clients are able to select a 1 or 2 bedroom layout in a 45sqm apartment, or a 2 or 3 bedroom layout in a 90sqm apartment, customized by the architects for the ideal format.
The renovation will focus on many different aspects of the building including the restoration of the façade with new exterior carpentry. There will be extensive work to expose the original brickwork and restore the Catalan vaulted ceilings to their former glory. Each apartment has it’s own balcony.
