Dwellings in Barcelona by Josep Lluís Mateo :

“In a little passage, in the city centre. The neighbours protected themselves from the exterior with thick walls and balconies.

We had to perform with lightweight factors, so we designed the façade as a succession of layers: 1 interior, of glass and stainless steel, and one more exterior, near to it, of wood that opens and closes at will. It protects us from noise and inquisitive eyes, acts as a filter in between inside and outside, and provides the creating an urban picture.

To accommodate domestic existence in the dense central city, architecture has to veil and management pure transparency.”
