CLT

The building is very correct, discreet. The system was very innovative at that moment and for this place. Let us just mention something that, being obvious, always attracts our attention in this type of construction: the succession of technical fabrics that accompany an apparently simple construction. The issue is that building with brick brings benefits that we are not aware of until we lose them: the material is inert, the mechanism of union between pieces guarantees the sealing of the joints. Losing performances in the main façade layer means entrusting them to added elements.

COSTELLES/ RIBBONS (C.002)

The "Ribbons" project was created as a response to Poblenou and the people who are living in the neighborhood. Co-Housing is the idea that joins the intervention, social housing to strengthen community ties, avoiding thinking from the individuality of the buildings. The shape of the structure is a direct translation of pre-existing factories that fit with the complicated orientation of the Tupolev buildings that are on the seafront.The scale of the structure, on the other hand, responds more to the city than the houses it will take in.
