EMBT arquitectes. Santa Caterina Market Housing. Barcelona

This very original intervention in a historic district is based on the complicated insertion of housing units into a development that revolves around the restoration of the market.
The programme of housing for the elderly adds population density to an already saturated fabric.

Since the housing units are of a reduced size, they save the extra space that exists in homes inhabited by one person. The volume which hosts the housing program retreats with modesty to one of the edges of the site, pushed by the spectacular ceramic roof. Being closer to the nearby constructions, some facades have thus suffered from this difficult location. The adaptation of each housing unit to such volumetric and structural complexity, however, is questionable.
