Opening The Kitchen To The Living Room Was An Essential Feature Of This Home Remodel

Goko Studio Architects has remodeled an apartment in Barcelona, Spain, that’s located within a building dating from the beginning of the twentieth century.

The highly compartmentalized interior was becoming less and less functional, and the kitchen had no natural light, as it was located away from the windows and in a different area of the home.

The updated apartment includes a living room by the windows and a black-framed glass wall that opens up to the combined dining room and kitchen. While just off the living room there is now a small home office.

The flexible kitchen and dining room has dark cabinets, which are contrasted by the light wood dining table.

The table rests against the island, leaving a lot of room for movement for the family of four that live in the home. When there are large family gatherings, the extended table can be turned ninety degrees and allows for space for up to fourteen people.

Sliding doors connect the various spaces to the hallways that lead to the bedrooms and bathrooms.
