OPENING WINDOWS

OPENING WINDOWS

Carmel is a neighbourhood made of narrow streets and buildings that are often too high for them. That’s why sometimes is delightful to discover a gap left between party walls, displaying a view to the city below.
Inspired in by the neighbourhood appearance, this project proposes the construction of urban balconies by setting specific instructions and placing light floating platforms on those empty plots.
Those new public spaces could be combined with new social housing and small facilities, attending to the surrounding scale. The operation configures a set of small squares that act as open windows to different parts of Barcelona.
