URBAN PROPOSAL FOR THE CITY- PORT INTERFACE
The Barcelona City-Port interface is under continue transformation. The limit between the urban port and the industrial logistic area is under movement and is being continually displaced south, opposite to urban positions, in search for areas where to minimize conflict between urban and port activities. At the same time, physically constrained the city of Barcelona is in search for space to provide houses to new comers.
This proposal link port and urban interest through the creation of a continue slab that facilities logistic activities under while permits urban activities above, provide space to enlarge today’s straitjacketed transport infrastructures and solve the link between the city and the bigger park in town, Montjuïc.

Renovation and extension of a traditional house.
Traditional patio is recovered, and the house is organized to enjoy favorable weather conditions of the Gran Canaria island. An extra floor is added to the original construction signifying the arrival of a new dweller after many years of the infrastructure abandonment.
The recovered patio aims to be the center of the activity of the house; rooms are widely open to it and spaces interconnected to expand the inside further out.
Architecture and construction solutions aim to enhance the use of traditional materials and techniques and provide new models to emphasize architecture values of the houses developed between the
30-s – 50´s in XX’s century.
This work is part of a broader urban strategy willing to foster the recovering of architecture values of La Isleta, the neighborhood developed along La Luz Port.
