DescriptionThe project is located in the plot of the old Uriach Laboratories. The proposal consists of an open block with a sequence of new public spaces that enhance the value of the listed building, designed by the architect Manuel Ribas Piera 1958, one of the best examples of functionalist architecture of its time.
The structure consists of three main buildings that respond in turn to three levels and intervention criteria: the refurbishment and interior upgrading of housing and offices of the listed building, with special emphasis on the reconstruction of the exterior walls; the integral reform of the industrial building located in front of the street Ripollés, with a system of housing which provides a solution to the great depth of the building; and finally the construction of a new residential building in "U" that defines street alignments Muntanya and Dega Bahi and the new square Carme Monturiol.
