The minimalistic style of the redevelopment invokes the austerity of past times. There is a dialogue between the new work and the old medieval house that seeks to marry past and present. The entry of natural light gives form to the volumes, and the fluidity of the spaces is accentuated.

Particularly noteworthy is her work with the cultural area of COAC, the Catalan architectural association, in Girona in the late 90s. Today she continues her professional work from her studio, working on a range of different-sized projects.
