The project involves obtaining a suitable façade to accompany Antoni Gaudí’s work. The starting point of the project is the search for materials with powerful tectonics capable of coexisting with the presence of the historical building.
A combination of brick and wooden construction was determined to be the best option, framed within a screen of steel sections. The resulting texture combines the materiality of the old early 20th-century factories, the structural order befitting technical rationality, and the necessary homeliness for a building of housing units. Also of importance is the proposal of a deep façade with a gallery-balcony that generates an intermediate space, interesting from both the climatic point of view and for the play of space that it creates, generating a gradient between public and private space.
