THE REHABILITATION OF A TRADITIONAL HOUSING IN SANT NARCÍS.
In 2018 we drew up the project to rehabilitate a home in the Sant Narcís neighborhood. Summer 2020 can be shown already in its finished state.
It is one of the historic buildings of the architect Ignasi Bosh Reig built in the 50s in the neighborhood of St. Narcissus, one of the clearest examples of application of the postulates of the English idea of garden city in our country.
It is a multi-family building of 4 storeys that stands out visually over the rest of the neighborhood of a lower height. It is characterized by the use of the traditional construction technique of the 4-point ceramic vault, also called handkerchief vault.
In our intervention we wanted to recover these ceramic vaults in the ceiling, making a pickle and leaving them in sight. In the rest of the action has opted for a minimal intervention that facilitates the entry of light into the home and eliminating unnecessary closures and gaining new open and bright spaces for daily life.
