The cool white interior of this penthouse apartment is highlighted with a playful bold black detailing. Offset by warm wooden floors and the sun splashed terracotta terrace walls and floors, the loft's ultramodern design, with its large, floating kitchen island in the center of the space, finds its contrast in the magnificence of the city scape and the surrounding warm colors.
Panoramic windows and its 3 terraces expand the sense of space and provide the full splendor of Barcelona with gracious 360º views of the city.
The terraces are perfect for children to play outdoors or splash around in the rooftop mini, ankle deep pool or for the family to lunch al fresco.
All terraces are completed with outdoor showers, lounge seaters and sun beds.
This 80 sq meter (861 sq feet) penthouse, located on the 8th floor, has two bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms equipped with a rain shower.
Cleverly designed with adaptability as a focal point, grand sliding walls enable one of the bedrooms to be easily transformed to a discreet space or opened to blend in with the general lounge/dining area.
Nestled high above the crossroads between two distinct neighbourhoods, the elegance of Eixample (and Gayxample) and the vibrant, colourful and fashionable Raval, the Urgell apartment reflects its unique location perfectly.

Looking for a more unusual place to stay, i came across this beautiful penthouse apartment. The location is excellent: in Eixample, just a couple of blocks from the Raval, 5 minutes walk from MACBA, but also just 50!metres from the Urgell Metro stop.
The flat itself is beautiful: floor-to ceiling glass sliding doors, lots of outdoor space both on the roof and on the sane level, white cooking kitchen island work space and free floating dining table, two bedrooms with en-suites, each with rain forest shower, quirky lighting, Bosch appliances invl. induction stove, excellently equipped for cooking with kitchen utensils, spices etc.
The main view is west-facing above the roof of most other houses in the block. That said, since the place is newly built on top of an older house ("sobre-atico"), the charming old elevator ends one floor below - which is not a problem at all.
