El Gornal Housing

Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura as Architects

The project consists of two clusters of buildings: the first, three towers consisting of ground floor and 12 above, linked by an underground car park and with direct access to the dwellings by means of lifts; the second, a linear building with ground floor and 5 above. All the elements have been rationalised to the maximum with a view to obtaining simple, functional buildings while maintaining pure, well-defined lines. The white metal and glass finish endow the façades with a constant rhythm.


Program Complex of 176 rent-controlled dwellings.


Client Institut Català del Sòl. Total surface area 22,258 m2
