Minotti London presents: The Barcelona Project
Barcelona has a rich history of artists and architects and stunning properties to match. Having called this hub of European culture home for many years, Minotti London Director Anke Summerhill invites you take a tour of her first interior design project in the city’s historic Gothic Quarter.
“The flat was very dark with a lot of small rooms and false ceilings; I think this is the reason it was not sold as it did not look appealing inside at all. I, however, could imagine it with a lot of walls taken out and exposing the original ceiling. The space is really transformed; you would not think it was the same place.” – AS
With more than three decades of experience in the design industry, Anke Summerhill has an encyclopaedic knowledge of furniture and lighting. In the first of her interiors projects, and working alongside the Minotti London team, Anke has transformed an unloved but charming apartment in the heart of Barcelona into a bright family home brimming with personality.
“I loved the place as I wanted to buy something in the Gothic Quarter, but most properties there are in narrow roads/alleyways and so often quite dark. This property is on a square overlooking the side of the town hall and so very light. In fact each room has natural light, which is not often the case in that neighbourhood. It has a great roof terrace that we will also work on at some point.” says Anke.
