Text description provided by the architects. The site, a desolate land, where landscape and industry are juxtaposed, but not closely related, coexisting without tension. There was no shelter between the Ebro and the typography or between the industry and the urban settlement. The need to ancor this place was strong and we began by dusting off the grid. From the exterior to the interior, accidental spaces are made with subtracting matter, and by altering the grid.

The type on this site had lost purity, but now it emanates a sense of belonging with intertwined abstraction and specificity. On the exterior the use of steel creates a dense, heavy, cold and rough sense. The use of poly carbonate on the interior creates the opposite effect, with a light, soft space.
