contributed by Jose_Garcia

The project is sited at the Eixample district, which is characterised by the urban grid of Plan Cerdá and its uniformed square blocks. This project means a redefinition of a complex already existing through the recycling of a unused building to convert it into a library. The entrances to the buildings are rearranged by placing them in the corner, at the same time a new element, housing the fire escape, is set up into this place; these two operations emphasizes the importance of the chamfer in the Cerda's grid. The library building is based on two ideas; first, allowing the light penetrates in the library by transforming the walls into glass, a light aluminium mesh provides sun protection; the second idea is the removal of the central bay of the former building, this idea generates a three floor high patio that allows the reading of the building as a unique space.
