The new building blends two programs that historically has been combined but that in the last decades has been separated. The rehabilitation of an century old colonial building is hosting a restaurant that opens up to a residential courtyard while the residence make use of the restaurant kitchen for its own purposes. A family room at the restaurant is used to host relatives and friends services but also works as an extension of the house to bring the owner ́s children closer to their parents work space. A hidden private stair connects the kitchen restaurant with the residential living room but also to the residential roof garden that could also host restaurant private events.

COLUMNAS CRISTALIZADAS BARCELONA, SPAIN CLIENT: Fundacion Mies van der Rohe PROGRAM: Public Space AREA: N/A PROJECT COST: 15.000 euros STATUS: Competition 2016
The Mies foundation aims to recreate the jonic columns by Puig i Cadafalch for the Pavilion ́s 30th anniversary. A no literal restoration is requested. Referencing Mies ́s open structures work we found that nature plays an important role in his architecture whom actively participates in the architecture ́s composition dissolving the boundaries of architecture and exterior. The Barcelona Pavilion did not have a natural environment to open up to so Mies creates its own within the Pavilion. We took this project ́s opportunity to also bring nature to it ́s surroundings by planting 8 season changing Populus Alba at the exact same location the columns once stood.
