House 1016 is a minimalist residence located in Barcelona, Spain, designed by Raúl Sánchez. The proposal is for a small budget intervention in which demolition is minimized to make the most of existing features, aimed at combining a second home with seasonal rentals. However, the home’s current floor plan is outdated and does not meet the new functional requirements and needs. With a few changes, the idea is to change the way the house is lived in. On the ground floor, the kitchen is small and has little relation to the other spaces; although the new kitchen project maintains its current location to take advantage of the existing plumbing and drain systems, it now opens up to the living room through an opening in the wall that separates these two spaces, which is a load-bearing wall and thus requires reinforcing.
