Everything you need to know about living in an attic flat/ penthouse in Barcelona

What are the advantages of living in penthouses in Barcelona?

You need to bear in mind that living in a penthouse in Barcelona means living on the highest floor of the entire building. The first advantage is having a panoramic view of your surroundings, views will vary depending on the flat. The second major advantage is having the purest and freshest air of all of the flats in the block thanks to being further away from the pollution of vehicles and closer to fresher circulating air. The third advantage of living in a penthouse in Barcelona is being able to enjoy sunbathing. And having the possibility of being able to prepare a meal in the open air, such as a barbecue. It is also important to say that there is much less noise on the roof of a building than on the ground floor, so a penthouse in Barcelona will be less noisy than other flats in the city. So, if you are going to buy a flat at this height, enjoy it to the fullest.

What is the best solar orientation for a penthouse in Barcelona?

The best solar orientation for an attic flat in Barcelona is south or southeast because it will have sun in the mornings until mid-afternoon. Alternatively, a west facing orientation will give you sun in the afternoon and enable you to watch the sun setting. The worse orientation of all for sunlight for a penthouse in Barcelona is north.

Does the air in a penthouse in Barcelona have a lower level of pollution?

Mainly due to the actions of man, the natural proportions of gases found naturally in the atmosphere have been altered and other substances that are foreign to the composition of the atmosphere can be found. This results in polluted and degraded air quality, particularly at street level, which, on occasions, reaches levels that exceed what is tolerable for the health of human beings. Pollution levels on the roof of a penthouse in Barcelona are much lower than in flats on the ground floor.

Is it possible to create an urban garden in a penthouse in Barcelona?

The most suitable container for growing plants is a raised planting box. But don’t forget to use a lining to protect against humidity and insulating materials to prevent the roots from damaging the floor in future. Another system would be to use bought or homemade growing tables. A homemade growing table can, for example, consist of a plastic box supported on a table containing drainage holes to prevent rainwater from accumulating.

How much weight per square metre can a penthouse in Barcelona withstand?

The first thing to mention is that it is not necessary to have a special terrace or area in penthouse in Barcelona in order to turn it into a small urban garden. What is very important, however, is not to place too much weight on one point, which would overload the floor slab. In new-build flats, the weight of 950 kg per square metre should not be exceeded. In old buildings, the weights that the floor slabs can withstand are significantly lower than in new buildings, and should not exceed 700 kg per square metre.

How can a penthouse Barcelona be turned into a chill-out zone?

The first thing would be to carefully choose the terrace furniture to ensure that it fulfils the first commandment of the chill-out style: to provide tranquillity and guarantee comfort. The furniture can be made from different materials, but it is advisable to avoid luxurious finishes and to cover it with cushions or plaids. The colour white is the most suitable basic tone for decorating a chill-out terrace but should be combined with other colour elements to ensure a more pleasant and carefree atmosphere. It is advisable to combine warm tones and avoid aggressive shades. A combination of wood, the odd metal element, fabrics and cushions will ensure the creation of a striking chill-out space for penthouse in Barcelona.

Which surface is best for the floor in a penthouse in Barcelona?

The first thing to keep in mind is that the terrace of a penthouse Barcelona is an outdoor feature that needs to be well waterproofed to prevent leaks. After the waterproofing layer, a levelling plate with levelling mortar should be fitted. The finished flooring can then be installed, which, in most cases, is ceramic. If a warmer finish is desired, it would be necessary to install a wooden floor or artificial turf, which can be walked on barefoot without burning the feet.

How can a penthouse Barcelona be turned into a space for sunbathing?

The first thing would be to make sure that the area is comfortable to walk on barefoot, ideally with a wooden floor or artificial carpet. Secondly, it would be necessary to create a shower using one of the taps. The most economical way would be to fit a hose and portable aluminium shower head supported by a tripod, which can be positioned where necessary. Lastly, cushioned loungers can be arranged in the area for a relaxing sunbathe.
