The stunningly beautiful home ‘in which the mental space is what matters’

An awe-inspiring melding of studios, galleries and living spaces – sometimes all in the same room – the residence of the Catalonian sculptor Xavier Corberó in suburban Barcelona is nothing less than a manifestation of his ceaselessly inventive imagination. As Corberó seeks to create ‘a place in which the mental space – not the real one – is what matters’, he finds himself surprised again and again when reality diverges from what he initially imagined.
