This 18 storey office building is located within “Campus Audiovisual”, a part of the regenerated 19th century industrial area of Poblenou, fronting a southern section of the Diagonal Avenue and close to the boundary of the Eixample and Sant Martí areas of the city. The project occupies approximately one half of an urban block within Ildelfons Cerda’s masterplan. Simple and bold sculptural forms have been carved out of the given project boundaries.
I joined this project in the earlier stages as a team member and head of the interior design in coordination with David Chipperfield office in London. After some slow phases I made my way up to lead the whole project. I was in charge for the whole site work, task would include coordination with DCA in London, drawing and designing in Barcelona, service engineers, structure engineers, consultants and client, over viewing budgets and work along constructor and craftsmen.
Budget was really tight so it was a challenge to redesign many issues to match the client requirements and make a fine DCA office building.
The building raises 72 metres height over the ground and it’s divided in 18 levels, plus 3 basements, completing a total gross floor area of 24387 square metres.
Location: Barcelona (Spain)
