THE LIBRARY : an artist oasis in the center of Barcelona.

The Library’s owner loves the city for its dynamism, for its possibilities, for its energy, but at the same time he seeks-needs peace and tranquility.

This house is your oasis in the center of Barcelona.
A protected, spacious, quiet and bright place where you can read, get inspired and the most important, write. The perfect place that an artist, an intellectual needs to find those moments of intense work and inspiration.


This house is the union of 4 floors of an existing building to convert it into a single house. The challenge was to unify these spaces initially conceived as office floors, later in individual homes and finally in one.
We started from a previous intervention, in which part of the spaces had already been unified and we wanted to give it material continuity, but reordering the hierarchy of spaces, demolishing floors, opening triple spaces and in general giving it an interior dynamism that valued the real proportion of spaces, dimensions and perspectives.
