This block is in the Poble Nou district, a former industrial area of Barcelona. Poble Nou remained the urban geometry designed by Cerdà, but the blocks were occupied according to the industrial needs. At the start of the project, a building of brickwork (already adapted for school uses) and a very well-built imposing chimney, also in brick, kept in this block. The architect thought that these two buildings had the capacity to define the volume and the shape of the new constructions. The project creates two new buildings aligned to the plot's borders, which rebuilt the unity of the block and leave a courtyard around the chimney. The new buildings use the same construction order as the existing ones, face brick, sloping roofs, regular structure, bays repeated and patterned by the structure, but at the same time, the construction is lightened with aluminium or sun protections mobiles.
