Ikea who? (C.006)

This façade's goal is not to create a traditional static architectural image for the city, but to design a technological solution that responds to the inhabitant's complexity through their life course there.Therefore, we have developed prefabricated façade-ceiling-roof components, gathered in a catalogue.

The façade solution for the Institut de Recerca of the Hospital de Sant Pau makes evident the collaboration of Pich-Aguilera Arquitectes with a formalization very similar to that of the Leitat building. On the one hand, the naked image of the thermal and watertight envelope would hardly allow to distinguish between them. On the other hand, both are covered with a ceramic lattice that partially hides the inner closure from the sun.

Pich Aguilera studio is one of those non-conservative teams that always attract our attention, not only due to the global formalization of their buildings, but also for the technological strategies being adopted.
