Twelve Houses in Fernando Poo Street – Barcelona

Located in the old fabric of Poble Nou, at a transitional point between the historic axis of María Agulló, the Rambla de Poble Nou, and the approaches to the beach, the project responds to this dual condition. On the one hand, Calle Fernando Poo reasserts the traditional typology of the house, two-story housing that makes no secret of its individuality to the street. On the other, the corner, empty but with well-defined arrises that stand out against the sky, looks out at the city of Barcelona with its animated flux of inhabitants and visitors who flow beachwards.
