Energetic and watertight refurbishment (165)
A really interesting refurbishment proposal for a 1959 office building from a well-known catalane architect, Francesc Mitjans.
The challenge was renovating the façade, improving its thermal and watertight performance, while being respectful with a relevant building of the catalane recent architecture history.
Notice in the axonometric view how the new cladding is supported over a steel frame structure so as not to add new loads over a scarce hollow brick inner wall, of only 4 cm thick over the windows!!
