This family house faces onto views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. The house explores a more environmentally sensitive form of design called ‘micro design’. Micro design utilises parametric modelling software which can respond to very small changes to design input criteria. The unique form is a response to the requirements to maintain view and solar corridors.

Both of them art graduates who have jobs in companies where they are able to demonstrate their artistic senses and creative skills. They dreamed of having a building like a “small art museum”.

Apartment Renovation in Eixample, Barcelona by EO arquitectura

Article source: EO arquitectura

The project presents the renovation of an apartment located in the ‘Eixample’, Barcelona. The building dating from 1930, has a surface of 70 sq2 with a main façade facing ‘Provença’ street and a service yard.

At first, the apartment had the typical distribution of the old dwellings in Barcelona, many subdivided rooms and different  layers of materials that had overlaid over the years. Regarding the limited budget available, we decided to maintain the location of the kitchen and bathroom, renewing them completely and therefore use more resources in the rest of the apartment.
