Coll-Leclerc Arquitectos. Housing and civic facilities Londres-Villaroel. Barcelona

This project is located in the densest of those analysed and is an intervention whose goal is to clear a saturated residential fabric.

The incorporation of a hybrid programme on this block, such as subsidised housing for young people, a primary school and sports fields, allows a reinterpretation of the typological possibilities of this block in the urban development by Cerdà with a direct relationship between inside and outside and a break in the buildings that does not impede the view of the original urban elements. However, the facade of the buildings creates a proportion and space rhythm whose relationship with its actual surroundings is open to discussion.

Regarding the advantages that this type of programme contributes to the context, not only are the community facilities very much worth noting, but the revitalisation of the population of 19th century bourgeois urban developments with a type of user that is becoming scarcer and scarcer.
