In Marquina and Font’s living room, a pair of kilim-covered chairs by Philippe Xerri, a chest of drawers by Piet Hein Eek, and a handmade Tunisian rug provide bursts of color amidst the overall scheme of white, ecru, and cream.
The architects discreetly sunk a pool into the roof terrace of the old corral. In order to shade part of the terrace, the architects designed a freestanding sun shelter. So as not to damage the outer walls of the old building, a galvanized-steel frame is secured to the terrace floor. A bamboo-reed covering projects a soft, filtered light onto the outdoor living area below.
A Losanges rug by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, part of Marquina’s 2011 collection, anchors the master bedroom. The Básica Mínima bedside lamp is from Santa & Cole, and the kilim pillows, available online and in Marquina’s Barcelona shop, are by Philippe Xerri.
