Spotted on Dezeen: Swiss architect Gus Wüstemann’s own apartment, located in a historic building in Barcelona. Wüstemann added modern elements to the old shell in a particularly striking way; he named the project “White Cross” for a cross-shaped addition at the back, which contains the new kitchen and bath. “It’s the feeling of not finishing, keeping it urban, and letting the process and time be visible that gives a feeling of freedom,” says Wüstemann. Interesting sidenote: Wüstemann was a professional snowboarder before he took up architecture.
