Barcelona, Spain

Text description provided by the architects. In a small passage, in the city centre. The neighbours protected themselves from the exterior with thick walls and balconies. We have to work with lightweight elements, so we designed the façade as a succession of layers: one interior, of glass and stainless steel, and another exterior, close to it, of wood that opens and closes at will. It protects us from noise and inquisitive eyes, acts as a filter between inside and outside, and gives the building an urban image.

To accommodate domestic life in the dense central city, architecture has to veil and control pure transparency.
