Cometa Architects embraces the movement of industrial modernism in the curation of this top-floor apartment in Barcelona. The space is completely reconfigured to house contemporary sensibilities. From the minimalist aesthetic to the cleverly divided layout, the home surely raises attention and interest from design-minded individuals.

Aside from the chic and elegant qualities of industrial modernism, Cometa Architects also took design cues from something more immediate. The creatives looked to the city's nearby Olympic Marina for inspiration, extracting relevant and stylish elements and transcribing them to the home environment.

When surveying the Barcelonean apartment, one is surely intrigued by the "huge wooden volume" that presents a subtle analogy to a "ship's cabin." The piece is intended to be used as a toilet, a laundry room, and storage space, giving a clever functionality to an aesthetically pleasing element of design.
