Antares: A Quirky Nod to Barcelona’s Culture

Property of the Week: Barcelona’s newest development has the most breathtaking views.

By Serina Tatham

Located in Barcelona, Antares is a new development crowning the skyline of one of Europe’s most culturally rich cities. Uniquely situated on the shoreline, the residences are all designed to make the most of this position.

And, as the highest residential tower in Barcelona, the views are spectacular. From the private terraces, the sea, the Montserrat mountains and the Catalan capital are just some of the sights visible. Rising 30 stories, world-renowned architect Odile Decq has designed something truly striking. The geometric curve of the outside is accented with deep red, creating a new landmark in a city known for its style.

This 4,156-sq-ft, four-bedroom apartment is open-plan and airy courtesy of high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. An eco-friendly option, bamboo wood flooring runs seamlessly through the interior living space onto the terrace – ideal for alfresco dining – blurring the boundary between the two zones and maximizing the views of Barcelona and the Mediterranean coast.

The master bedroom boasts a generous dressing room, bathroom and terrace, and the other three bedrooms are also ensuite. The interiors are modern and contemporary – in keeping with its locale in a city known for its quirkiness – and the curved interior walls reflect Antares’ curved skeleton, resulting in a unique floorplan.

Perhaps the biggest draw, however, is the shared amenities space. A nearly 11,000-sq-ft wellness area boasts a fitness center, indoor pool, yoga pod, steam rooms, sauna and spa treatment rooms. There is also a restaurant, cinema room, garden pavilion with a virtual golf simulator and a fully landscaped garden.

Green walls in these shared spaces, as well as being a striking feature, help purify the air and regulate Antares’ internal temperature. Crowning the building is a sky terrace and rooftop infinity pool, offering unobstructed panoramic views of Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea below.

While you sip a glass or two of Cava on your terrace, you can put your mind at rest that the utmost care has been taken to ensure Antares meets environmental standards. Outside, the glass façade is designed in such a way that minimizes exterior reflection and reduces cold losses and heat by conduction. Inside, the heating and cooling network used has led Antares to receive a Grade A energy performance certification as they actively participate in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
