Raval Hideout

architect Eva Cotman
project Apartment renovation, Barcelona, Spain


Narrow winding streets, small squares and tall narrow houses densely packed in the urban tissue of the old part of Barcelona provide the environment to this project of reconstruction and interior apartment decoration. Raval neighbourhood, once famous for its nightlife and not particularly safe, has significantly changed in the last decade and transformed into an important tourist location. Many galleries, museums of contemporary art, cafés and restaurants are situated there today and make the neighbourhood very popular among the young.
