This project is located on the seafront of Barcelona, in relation with the surrounding buildings.
The pioneering biomedical research centre, with an eye-catching shape that is integrated into its surroundings, is a highly complex building. The brief called for a large volume in a compact building. The resulting truncated cone-shape in Barcelona’s seafront rises from the sea towards the city, while adapting to the neighbouring buildings. The natural wood façade gives the building an air of lightness.
The interior is emptied out to create an independent reality that offers views of the sea and regulates the sunlight.
