The Poblenou neighbourhood is located a few metres from the Barcelona coast. A formerly working class district with a large capacity of people who are increasingly suffering from problems of gentrification. This is characterized by buildings of considerable height called Túpolev, which were built in the mid-twentieth century to accommodate humble families. The main problem with these buildings is that they border between the beach and the neighborhood and tourism is driving rents up exponentially. This is why this project aims to rebuild social housing at low cost.
Rainscreen facade with wooden suporting structure, waterproof sheet and thermally modified timber cladding.This housing building is located in Barcelona, a city know for its warm and humid clima. The main facade of the building is mainly facing south, which means that it gets a lot of sun radiation. That is why a rainscreen facade is chosen for this proyect.
