It’s not often that we take a trip through the streets of Barcelona, Spain — a city filled to the brim with classic design, timeless character, and a story at every turn. While the Mediterranean town boasts a style all its own, it relies on the work of revered local architects to keep its legendary aesthetic in check. The Theatre House, by Barco’s own Cadaval & Solà-Morales, perfectly balances the city’s royal lineage alongside modern principles.

The Theatre House has a storied past — from its humble beginnings as a local venue for plays, a warehouse for bath tissue, and now, a modern living space that illustrates the duality of the live/work cycle. In the heart of Spain’s greatest city, the dwelling capitalizes on the theatre’s original open-ended design, transitioning harmoniously between labor and leisure through the utilization of three independent wings. Two opposing studios with large, road-facing windows offer a symbiotic relationship with the streets, buildings, and pedestrians just outside of the space. Inside, exposed brick and textured wood compliment the home’s loft-like design, providing a wide, all-encompassing area for socialization. At the dwelling’s front, dual-story, sliding metal doors provide access to the home — acting as an entry point for the denizens’ classic vehicles.
