This 250 square meters loft is located in the Borne area of Barcelona, next to the Picasso Museum, Santa María del Mar, el Parque de la Ciudadela, and less than ten minutes walk to Barceloneta's beach or las Ramblas. Carrer Tantarantana is a one way / semi-peatonal street which was given this name because the Pope's representant used to live there and the drumbs played “Tan Taran Tan, Tan Taran Tan,...” every time he entered or left the Convent. The building used to house first monks and after “monjas” that serviced the Convent of Sant Agustí in front of it (bedroom windows) and holds a plate stating that the “Venerable Madrona Clarisa y Colomer was born, lived and died in it from 1688 to 17XX”. The whole building was completely redone in year 2.000.

The loft occupies the attic of the building which had been traditionally used as the place to extend and dry clothes (ceiling is 5 meters high). The architecture project was developed by the Archikubik studio with a very flexible program in mind. It has been published in Spanish and French architecture magazines and at the reference book “miniLofts” (Loft Publications, 2002). (note: actual furniture may no be exactly that shown in photos). It has three double bedrooms with a full bathroom each allowing perfect comfort for six. The kitchen is new and well equipped for cooking. Heating is central and integrated in the floor.There is as well a +200 square meters terrace at your own disposal, equiped with a BBQ for sunny days. TV and adsl connections are provided. Parking at the same building is as well provided. Neighbours are young couples (round their 40s) and really nice people.
