Before Born became one of the most happening neighborhoods in Barcelona, it was a Gothic quarter filled with 17th century buildings. In order to transform it into a present-day masterpiece, a Spanish family of architects and interior designers bought a flat and turned it into a hyper-modern apartment. 

Inspired by the interiors of sailboats and cruise ships, they designed the 70sqm (753sqft) space into a series of different boxes. It starts off with the master bedroom that closes to become a wooden cube, a second sleeping space attached to another wooden panel, and a floating vertical garden that connects the two rooms. The living and kitchen areas have been left open to maximize space, but you have the option to close the cooking corner into a glass-enclosed space, too. However, the most spectacular part of the home is the floating bathroom cube that is an all-glass, all-in-one shower plus toilet that comes with rolling blinds for privacy.
