Archways appear throughout Penthouse in Barcelona by PMAA

Partitions punctuated with arched openings divide the living spaces inside this Barcelona apartment, which has been overhauled by architecture studio PMAA.

Situated on the top floor of a residential building in Barcelona's Raval neighbourhood, Penthouse has been updated by locally-based PMAA to feature fresh white surfaces and a sequence of vaulted partitions.

Although decor has largely been kept to a minimum, the studio decided to preserve existing patterned tiles in the kitchen, which is finished with steel storage elements and dining table.

A porthole has also been punctuated in one of the apartment's peripheral walls and covered with coloured acrylic to emit a faint orange glow.

"It creates a distorted version of external reality, and an unreal light inside that's reminiscent of an autumn afternoon," the studio explained to Dezeen.

PMAA is one of several studios to implement arches into its projects –New York-based Raad Studio used an arched wall to unite two formerly separate properties in Lower Manhattan, forming one huge apartment.

Israeli practice Pitsou Kedem also added vaulted doorways to a Jaffa apartment, mimicking its domed ceiling.
