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.

Welcome to The Barcelona Project: A stunning apartment in the heart of the Spanish city, created by Director of Minotti London, Anke Summerhill.

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.” – Anke Summerhill

Join Anke as she takes you through this stunning design:

With more than three decades of experience in the design industry, Anke Summerhill has an encyclopaedic knowledge of furniture and lighting which she brings to this, The Barcelona Project.

In the first of her interior design projects, Anke has transformed an unloved but charming apartment in the heart of Barcelona into a bright family home brimming with personality.

Having opened up the rooms, Anke used Minotti furniture to create inviting, elegant spaces for relaxing and entertaining.

All this was achieved while still fitting into the aesthetic of the apartment’s origins.

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.

Minotti designs featured in this project include Aston chairs, Andersen sofas, a Lane console, Cesar side tables and more. See more photography of the apartment below.

Anke also extended the elegance created by the Minotti furniture into the bathroom design. Highlights in gold provide an accent to the clean white finish of the tiles. This contrasts with the matte wood of the floor and sink supports.
