Top trends in building renovations in Ciutat Vella 

Ciutat Vella is Barcelona's district number 1. In fact, it is the Old Town and historic centre of Barcelona. Therefore, it is not surprising that a series of renovations on derelict buildings is currently taking place in this district. This is a project that has resulted in the possibility of owning latest-generation homes in one of the most symbolic areas of Ciudad Condal. 

What are the Main Trends When Renovating Buildings in Ciutat Vella? 

The first task is to check the state of the structure and its exterior. Regarding the latter, the objective is to always preserve the original features of the building as much as possible. In an area like this, it is normal to find buildings that are of artistic and architectural value. 

In addition, the energy efficiency of the building is also important. To do this, one must replace the windows and doors with insulated materials that are environmentally friendly. The purpose is to achieve zero emission levels.

Of course, the interior of properties is also clearly affected. In fact, it must be completely re-constructed again. This offers the possibility of bringing the property up to date with the latest technological advances and standards. These usually include air conditioning systems by conduits, insulation inside the walls, thermal and acoustic soundproofing doors, etc. 

The aim is to be able to create a fully renovated property within a building that was constructed decades ago.
