Architectural restoration by MINIM interior designers

Beautiful interiors in a former cloister were brought to life by Elina Vilá and Agnès Blanch from MINIM interior design studio. The 500 years old building is located in historical part of Barcelona and was restored and partially rebuild by the great Antoni Gaudí in 1901-1904.
The main aim of MINIM studio was to maintain all the original architectural details and designing a functional family apartment within the existing structure. The light, minimalistic style of the interiors, inspired by Scandinavian aesthetics emphasizes the historical atmosphere of the building.

  1. Taki dom to moje marzenie. Zaaranżowane nowocześnie i "po mojemu" z wyraźnymi śladami przeszłości. Cudowny.
