Project consisting of the reform of the common areas of an old country estate in the Eixample neighborhood of Barcelona, and the conversion of the former caretaker's dwelling into a penthouse.

On the stairs of the property it is presented the restoration of the slab vaults with curved shapes that are linked between landings and where the lighting is set. On the other hand the wall overlooking the patio is opened and an elevator is placed. The staircase is covered with a skylight that enables the ventilation of the space.

The renovation of the penthouse is planned in only two areas, separated and served by a linear cabinet that runs along the house. The roof is proposed as a large skylight, seeking to increase the spacious feeling by adding an overhead visual, and with structural slats placed from east to west in order to protect the daylight entrance and avoid the greenhouse effect.
