Refurbishment of a lodge in Passeig de Gràcia

Integral remodeling of the acces of a housing building

The current project faces a refurbishment of a Lodge in a building placed in the Passeig de Gràcia of Barcelona, showcase of the most remarkable Modernist Architecture and main bourgeois residential center dating from the 19th century.

Lodges of buildings placed in this remarkable street are traditionally of a great nobility and incorporate classicist elements that confers them great personality.

The design focused on repairing and restoring the original space, respecting the historical structure. Both the restoration and repair of the existing is driven by the idea that the original structure should be emphasized in its spatial context and maintain the original materiality - the new reflects the lost without imitating it.

The original sequence of spaces was restored and enhanced through generating symmetries and proportions that were already intended in the existing. The different sections of the plans were given sense through the generation of series of portals, that organize and give continuity to the space.
