Housing Units in Santa Coloma 1, 2019

Nineteen Apartments in Santa Coloma. 2019-ongoing

Redevelopment of existing buildings and densification of housing is the most sustainable strategy that we can apply to our cities today. Old buildings are redeveloped and adapted to comply with new regulations and more efficient environmental criteria, reducing land use and preserving the natural environment surrounding our communities.

The site is located in Santa Coloma de Gramanet’s historical centre, in a narrow semi-pedestrianized street, with mixed-use activities on the ground floor. The project aims to salvage the existing façade with characteristic features of both Mediterranean and local architecture (sun shading, cross ventilation, etc.), providing the neighbourhood with a familiar presence.

The building has been conceived with 19 apartments of different typologies (2 and 3 bedrooms), mixed-use on the ground floor and an existing basement. The existing courtyards have been expanded, echoing the pattern of adjacent buildings. The proposed structural work is minimal, maximising courtyards and layout. The existing envelope is modified to comply with the new functional agenda and create new openings. Balconies are retained and terraces are restored. Each housing unit enjoys outdoor space, providing an area similar to an aboveground one-family dwelling with its own courtyard -a terrace with an exceptional relationship with the outside. Each apartment has its own external, private and intimate landscape.

Addressing these urban regeneration projects creates the possibility to give an area its own identity and sense of community. These spaces are not only a market opportunity but also a compromise with the local area, working towards sustainable growth and becoming an urban benchmark for a new era.
