Energetic and watertight refurbishment (165)
A really interesting refurbishment proposal for a 1959 office building by a well-known Catalan architect, Francesc Mitjans.
The challenge was renovating the façade, improving its water-tightness and thermal performance, while remaining respectful to a significant building from recent Catalan architectural history.
Notice in the axonometric view how the new cladding is supported on a steel frame structure so as not to add new loads to the thin hollow brick inner wall, only 4 cm thick above the windows!!
