Steal This Look: A Custom Kitchen in a Barcelona Remodel

July 9, 2024

Architects Andrea Conti and Isa Cert of Barcelona-based firm Conti, Cert redesigned an upper floor apartment that was formerly dark and partitioned with low ceilings and cramped quarters. While recovering and restoring original details, the firm created a compact kitchen with two-tone cabinets, tiled floors, and muted tones. Here’s a closer look at the details with sources to match.
