Jofre Roca Arquitectes: Honorable Mention of International Residential Architecture Awards 2020. The refurbishment is in one of the main floor apartments, which has access to three patios. They are filled with plants and have received a landscape treatment with the aim of creating a space of disconnection despite the crazy cosmopolitan rhythm.
The intervention consists in renovating a dwelling using a contemporary program that keeps in mind the existing architecture and prioritizes the maintenance and recovery of primary building elements such as carpentry, shutters and hydraulic flooring. These elements, with their wounds and wrinkles, are the ones providing a clear added value.
