Dwellings in Barcelona by Josep Lluís Mateo :

“In a little passage, in the city centre. The neighbours protected themselves from the exterior with thick walls and balconies.

We had to operate with lightweight elements, so we created the façade as a succession of layers: a single interior, of glass and stainless steel, and an additional exterior, close to it, of wood that opens and closes at will. It protects us from noise and inquisitive eyes, acts as a filter among inside and outdoors, and provides the building an urban image.

To accommodate domestic life in the dense central city, architecture has to veil and handle pure transparency.”
