Located in Barcelona, Casa Burés is a modern architecture building in the chamfer of Ausiàs March and Girona streets. As a magnificent architectural building by Miquel Pascual and Francesc Berenguer, this captivating space was built between the years 1900 and 1905. Recently, Casa Burés has been designed by Vilablanch in partnership with TDB Arquitectura to feature a host of contemporary fixtures and modern furniture pieces with a unique design.
From the façade to the yard and also the interior stairs, all the Casa Burés’s modern design elements cataloged that compose the architectural building were preserved and renovated: a huge challenge that the architect Juan Trias de Bes and all the interior design team of Vilablanch studio faced with enthusiasm and creativity.
Known as specialists when we talk about high-standing houses restoration, Vilablanch studio has developed an architectonic and interior design project that could adapt to all the practical requirements, recovering to the maximum the creative elements of the contemporary design buildings.
The design studio has renovated all 26 apartments in Casa Burés, ranging from vast living quarters with frescoed ceilings to more pared-back, white-walled flats. According to Elina Vilá and Agnès Blanch from Vilablanch team: “We opted for an elegant and sophisticated interior design that recovers and enhances the valuable decorative elements that are part of the history of modernism. They’re accompanied with elements that are equally refined, but serene, less ornate and silent.”
Casa Burés is a founded building at the beginning of the 20th century by Spanish architect Francesc Berenguer i Mestres and has as own title the name from its first proprietor, Francesc Burés. Over the years, Casa Burés had been destroyed and fallen into a state of disrepair.
Inside the renovated and modern interior design space, the contemporary rooms are linked by lengthy corridors with stained-glass windows or frescoed rotundas with floor-to-ceiling gilded paneling. As you can see, there are an open-plan dining and sitting areas interrupted by iron columns. Inside the interior design project, there are concrete floors and exposed-brick surfaces run throughout, coupled with black-framed glass partitions walls.
Keeping the focus on the Casa Burés‘s opulent original features, this renovation was seen as an unparalleled residential project in Barcelona, which comprises 26 luxury livings from 120 to 500 meters squared.
