Casa Burés, listed since 1979, was built between 1900 and 1905 by Catalan architect Francesc Berenguer i Mestres. After three years of careful restoration work, Casa Burés has emerged as one of the most representative Modernist-style buildings in Barcelona. In its 7.700 sqm, distributed over 6 floors, the architectural and rich interior original elements were respected and restored to host 26 exclusive residences.
The team defined three interior design concepts. While three lofts and the basement common areas recovered their original industrial character, on the main floor two 500 sqm palatial residences were carefully restored respecting the existing modernist heritage, including mosaics and marquetry in pavements, stained-glass windows, frescoed walls and ceilings, wooden decorative elements, ceilings with reliefs.
In the upper floors 16 flats and 5 attics combine strong original modernist spaces with more contemporary dècor, incorporating new materials that allow the contrast between old and new: white color and oak wood were chosen in order not to compete, but to highlight and contrast the original decoration.
The new materials and furniture pieces were equally refined but silent, not very ornate, light and with colors in silent integration within the overall space. A lot of renowed design brands stand out as suppliers, such as Living Divani, Cassina, Bulthaup, Antoniolupi, Zanotta, Davide Groppi, Molteni&C., Poltrona Frau.
