Construction project of new housing on a protected building in Barcelona.

The main difficulty raised was to integrate a current house in a building of more than 100 years old, as well as to manage all the procedures for the approval of the project by the City Council as it is a protected building.

As it is an old roof, it was preferred not to support the house on the existing floor, but to create a sub-structure that would rest on the supporting walls of the building. Thus, the original slopes of the roof were respected for the drainage, leaving the house “floating” on it.
