Atelier Barcelona situate itself as a flexible work space that mediates the relationship between public to private and live to work. Within the city grid of Barcelona is a logic of division that provides internal passage while expanding the blocks facade to increase light and air. The atelier continues this division to maximize it's facade to serve the function of public/artist interface. Further division and an introduced push creates an occupiable space extending the passage from circulation to function. The private nature of the Atelier requires that these swollen internal passages not be fully accessible to the public and access is reserved for open galleries and events. The flexible permeability of the block as a whole is carried out on increasingly smaller scale as it facilitates the exterior and interior exhibition space as well as the work/live apartments.
