This early XX century patio-apartment presents the opportunity to reformulate the dwelling’s conditions, adapted to Mediterranean climate, in the urban density of Gracia’s district.
We are an architectural and urban development studio located in Barcelona directed by Carles Enrich Giménez, architect graduate of ETSAB and professor at the Reus School of Architecture. We combine professional practice with teaching and research.
Our work covers all the habitable fields: from domestic to urban, emphasizing where they crossover.
We work on the basis of pre-existing conditions, and memory, introducing new parameters of interaction between people and their surroundings. We reformulate questions to achieve the best answer for the real needs of both the space and its users. We propose living spaces and situations which optimize material while respecting the conditions of natural and urban habitats.
