Meet our construction team and architects!

We would like to introduce you to our construction team! Armando’s company CTTEAM and Cova, together with architect Albert from Postbook, will be executing the eco-renovation in the next few months.  

This is our floorplan!

This is our plan! 3 spacious apartments with “modernismo” floors and ceilings, typical “Eixample” balconies, and locally made furniture. Follow the #ecorenovation online and come and stay with us this summer!  

Careful with the antique tiles!

More wood floor per forest!

Here’s a wooden flooring that offers more floors per forest by respecting the trees’ natural curves. Bolefloor uses FSC certified wood and saves natural resources through its optimising technology. And it looks good! Thanks Dmass for the tip!  

VOC-free paints made in Europe

VOC-free paints of course! In Spain the leaders seem to be Livos and Keim… any other brands you recommend?

The R3project, an eco-renovation in Barcelona

The R3project is Petz’s renovation of her eco-flat in Barcelona in 2006. This project is what inspired and motivated her to create a hotel project a few years later, when she decided she did not want to create more things. As an […]

Hostal Empúries on the Costa Brava got it right: beauty, wellness and sustainability! We like it! They are the first LEED certified hotel in Spain. Right on the beach, surrounded by their own vegetable garden and solar panels, this project is right […]
