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.

Luisa is a cook and the matriarch of a very close-knit family.
Her semi detached four-storey house was a narrow, dark place. The stairs were claustrophobic and the space uncomfortable.
We removed all the existing elements to leave the place with a rough-and-ready feel. The boxed staircase disappeared to be replaced by a light, transparent hanging stairwell.
The kitchen needed to be the centrepiece, but at the same time it had to be tidy and clean since it was going to become the home’s entrance and main storage space. A mobile magic worktop in the kitchen was the solution!
The rest of the project is all about colour, light and wood.
