An architect-designed, cutting-edge penthouse overlooking the heart of Barcelona's thriving Sant Antoni district.

If you've travelled to Barcelona, yet you've never visited Sant Antoni, then let us tell you right now: you're missing a trick.  

The lively yet laid-back district is fast earning a reputation as a seriously hip hangout due to its buzzing market, bodegas on every corner, and authentic tapas haunts that add a delicious vibrancy to casual catch-ups. Better still, Sant Antoni's central location allows easy proximity to Barcelona's most talked-about hotspots.

You'll find Urgell Apartment right in the middle of all the Sant Antoni action, located by Urgell Metro Station, famously one of the oldest metro stations in the city.  

To complete the modish picture, this spectacular penthouse apartment comes complete with authentic Spanish design pedigree. Created by renowned architect Lluis Corbella, interiors have been supplied by up-and-coming design consultancy Stil - making for the absolute slickest of surroundings.

Located on the eighth floor and boasting spectacular views, you'll be greeted by cool white interiors and bold black detailing inside your 80 sqm apartment, offset by warm wooden floors and terracotta terrace walls that represent a firm nod to the best of trademark Spanish style.

There's plenty of razor-sharp contemporary flair to be found here too, from the floating kitchen island in the centre, to sliding walls, floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows, and three spacious terraces that gift you with 360º views of Barcelona's trademark splendour.

Head up to the rooftop mini plunge-pool and let the kids splash around, while you enjoy a traditional Spanish al fresco lunch, or get lost between the pages of a good book from the comfort of your lazy sun bed. Freshening up is made easy too, as the terraces each come equipped with their own outdoor shower.

Two deluxe, siesta-ready bedrooms each boast an en-suite bathroom equipped with a rainfall shower, while the sociably open living space is perfect for communal catch-ups over Rioja and snacks.  

Meanwhile, you can expect the highest standard of appliances in the well-equipped kitchen, including an induction hob, coffee maker and a juicer, and there are luxury toiletries to be found in the bathrooms - along with a ready supply of soft, fluffy towels.

Head outside, and within just a few steps you'll feel the beating heart of this flourishing area, in which you'll find there's no shortage of lively restaurants to try, including Ferran Adria's latest culinary venture, Tickets. Also close by is culture hotspot El Raval, with its array of quirky shops and contemporary museums, and the lively delights of Eixample and Gayxample.

For a real scenic treat, head to the former Arenas bullfighting ring - now converted into a shopping centre - and enjoy a drink from the upper deck terrace, where on balmy summer evenings you can witness the spectacular Magic Fountains on Montjuïc.

Put simply, if you want to be part of the hip crowd this year then take our advice: telling the world you've stayed in an architect-designed penthouse in the coolest part of Barcelona is a great way to start.
