Monochrome and white house
虽然该地区的大部分工厂和仓库已被改造成技术办公室和设计陈列室，但当地的建筑和室内设计工作室 Allaround Lab 已经将这个紧凑的工业空间变成了明亮通风的两居室住宅，采用了他们标志性的简约主义风格和 集成功能。
Once the centre of Barcelona’s industrial revolution, Poblenou has emerged as one of the city’s coolest neighbourhoods attracting start-ups, designers and hipsters in equal measure. While most of the area’s factories and warehouses have been converted into tech offices and design showrooms, local architecture and interior design studio Allaround Lab have turned this compact industrial space into a bright and airy two-bedroom residence by applying their signature style of crisp minimalism and integrated functionality.
Stripped down to its core, the space has been thoroughly renovated including the addition of a mezzanine level housing two bedrooms and a common bathroom. Having to contend with a narrow footprint and relatively few windows, the designers combined a monochrome palette of white and light grey hues with an open-plan living area in order to increase the flow of natural light and sense of spaciousness.
On the lower level, a double-height living room further enhances daylight distribution while the diagonal layout of the mezzanine level allows multiple views across the rooms.A paradigm of minimalist interior design, white painted brickwork, exposed concrete pillars and a lightweight metal staircase subtly attest to the property’s industrial past, while the precast concrete ceiling coffer units echo the design of traditional Catalan vaults.
Meticulously designed down to the smallest detail, the sparsely furnished spaces nevertheless provide all the amenities of modern living with custom-made furnishings cleverly combining multiple functionalities.Case in point, the built-in sofa which features integral shelving for books and objects, the kitchen island which doubles as a dining table, and the kitchen’s main storage unit which also functions as a partition shielding the living room from the street-facing windows in addition t providing additional workspace.
AZ 公寓 - 这是一个人的小公寓。适度的尺寸（41 平方米）和一组功能区，使我们创造了一个“盒子”概念，并成为我们开始设计过程的第一个任务。
AZ Flat - This is a small apartment for one person. Modest dimensions (41m2) and a set of functional zones, led us to create a box concept and became the first task with which we started the design process.
Functional zoning - we decided to divide the space of the apartment into three main zones: the living room zone, the kitchen area - the dining room and the sleeping area. To create an isolated place for sleeping, but at the same time to preserve the free space of the apartment with its air, we decided to integrate the sleeping unit directly into the center of the room, without protecting it by stationary walls or partitions. We have designed the Box like a furniture, which serves as an isolated sleeping module, as well as the main place for storage in the apartment. With the help of the box, we visually separated the entrance area from the general space, as well as the living room area from the dining room and kitchen.
In the end we got interpenetrating spaces that visually contact, but do not mix with each other. Thus, the box solved a number of functional and planning problems and became the visual accent of the entire apartment space.Materials and contrasts - to further emphasize the new, foreign volume of the box, we decided to make the internal and external facades of the box in natural rough wood. The rest of the surfaces (floor, ceiling, walls, built-in furniture) was made as laconic, smooth and light. This dialogue between the white, light background and the accented volume of the box, creates a contrast dialog between colors, textures and volumes, allowing to enhance the emotional perception of the interior and its basic materials.
Light - in this project, as in many others, we paid special attention to the light, both natural and artificial. With the help of a well thought-out lighting concept, it was possible to create a bright, airy and visually permeable space, illuminated by natural light. We also provided a lot of different scenarios of artificial lighting, which allows both to regulate the illumination of the premises, and easily create the right mood of the interior. Light and emotional perception are inextricably linked and our goal was with the help of light, to emphasize and supplement the restraint of the interior.Permeability - in a small space the main resource is air and volume to achieve a sense of permeability and freedom, we cut the windows into a box and into the bathroom. These windows allowed us to distribute natural light into everything, even the darkest corners of the apartment. The windows allow to illuminate the inner space of the box also the entrance area in the apartment. We decided to follow by the same principles for illumination.
in the bathroom. We cut through the portal between the kitchen and the bathroom, which allows to illuminate the bathroom with natural light and create an additional visual dialogue between these spaces. The window separating the kitchen and the bathroom is equipped with (smart glass) technology and allows, by pressing one button, to translate the transparent glass into a matte, opaque glass.The result - in this project we were striving to create an interesting, multifaceted and multifunctional space, to create a low-key, but at the same time expressive interior, filled with air and light.
Belgian Minimalist Home
er Vanrenterghem 的作品就是一个光辉的例子。该住宅位于城市边缘的科特赖克，专为一对年轻夫妇设计，他们渴望一个温暖、简单的家，让他们从现在到未来，并经得起时间的考验。
Belgian architecture is characterised by its serene minimalism, warmth and authenticity, and the work of Pieter Vanrenterghem is a shining example. Located in Kortrijk on the city fringe, the residence was designed for a young couple who desired a warm, simple home that would take them from the present through to the future, and stand the test of time.
分，并且是持续且有趣的部分。开发和设计直到最终完成，由此产生的家居展示了干净的线条，用纯净、诚实的材料软化，增添了人情味。使用经久不衰的材料是贯穿 Pieter 作品的一个元素。他说房子不是陈列室，它需要有人居住，而且他喜欢随着时间的推移而形成的自然光泽。
With an exacting approach, Pieter started by writing a clear program for the design. He describes this part of the process — listening to the clients and identifying their needs, wishes and habits — as the most important part, and one that is both continuous and interesting. Developing and designing until it is finally finished, the resulting home showcases clean lines softened with pure, honest materials that add a human touch.Using materials that age beautifully is an element that can be seen throughout Pieter’s work. He says a house is not a showroom, it needs to be lived in, and he loves the natural patina that develops over time.
对于 Residence VV，Pieter 选择了石灰华与 Hullebusch 的粗暴处理表面、拉丝木材和手工应用的 tadelakt 的混合物。后者是摩洛哥建筑中传统使用的耐用防水石膏表面，具有柔软、
起伏的特性。pastellone 地板是由 Odilon Creations 设计的。饰面的触觉组合，它们共同提供了一种自然的泥土色调，包括石头在颜色和运动方面的细微差别以及木材的温暖。选择了包括窗帘和地毯在内的纺织家具来衬托整体感觉。
For Residence VV, Pieter chose a mix of travertine with a brutal treated surface from Hullebusch, brushed wood and hand applied tadelakt. The latter, a durable waterproof plaster surface traditionally used in Moroccan architecture, has a soft, undulating character.The pastellone flooring is by Odilon Creations. A tactile combination of finishes, together they provide a natural earthy palette that includes the stone’s subtle nuances in colour and movement and the warmth of the wood. Textile furnishings including curtains and rugs were chosen to compliment the overall feel.
精心挑选的家具进一步增强了精致的室内美学，其中包括标志性设计的组合，例如 Carl Hansen - Son 的 CH24 Wishbone 椅子，以及 Valerie Objects 的 Muller Van Severen Duo Seat 等现代作品。
The refined interior aesthetics are further enhanced by a careful curation of furniture that includes a mix of iconic designs such as the CH24 Wishbone Chairs from Carl Hansen - Son, and contemporary pieces like the Muller Van Severen Duo Seat from Valerie Objects.
