Old apartment redesign and renovation with changing color floor tiles
Creative Barcelona apartment ideas by London studio David Kohn Architects turned an apartment renovation project into an artwork with unusual triangular-shaped floor tiles, unique architectural designs and space saving solutions. This apartment redesign and renovation project has been named the World Interior of the Year at the Inside Festival in Singapore.
The floor of the Carrer Avinyo apartment is covered in colorful triangular floor tiles that gradually change their color from green to red across the space. The architects designed the apartment as a holiday home for two brothers who live in London and Hong Kong. They removed the internal partitions and created a large living space with a kitchen and a home library.
The amazing apartment ideas include restoring the original ceiling moldings and adding gorgeous color contrasts to home interiors. The triangular floor tiles are adorned with triangular decoration patterns, and the elements gradually change color from green to red, adding a striking effect to apartment decorating. Located in the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona, the apartment is designed as a vacation place for people who grew up in this city.
Modern interior design with triangular floor tiles
Most of the apartment’s internal partitions were stripped away, creating an open-plan living space that makes the most of the high ceilings, huge windows and ornate moldings. 25 different floor tile designs add unique character to this interior design.
Unusual and very decorative floor tiles add a splash of color to the open space. Their gradual change in color softly defines functional zones. The green floor tiles surround two bedrooms, and the red floor tiles frame a kitchen with book shelves and a bedroom above.
Indoor balconies form a corridor between the two first-floor bedrooms and their en suite bathrooms. A custom-made wooden dining table is positioned diagonally, providing a large family dining area at the spot where the green and red floor tiles are most mixed.
