Text description provided by the architects. Marlet 1 is a new engraving, the last one written over its previous traces. It is a palimpsest that gathers the history of the plot. The plot is located in the central area of Ciutat Vella, the Old Quarter in Barcelona. It is circumscribed by the first walls of the Roman city and the successive realities that are still visible throughout the building.
Marlet 1 is part of the history: it is archaeology, it is preservation, it is the care to preserve and make visible everything that once happened there. But at the same time, it is technology, innovation, sustainability and the freshness that will contain whatever happens tomorrow. It is a proposal to adjust today's lifestyle to a historical environment built in the past.
Marlet 1 is a multi-family high-end housing project. It is a unique and incomparable case in the city of Barcelona. A renovation project that exhibits the original and categorical condition of the building. While it safeguards its spaciousness, its high and precious woodwork ceilings, its large windows filtering the Mediterranean light, its majestic balconies and its attic terraces to enjoy Barcelona’s mild climate; it also proposes a new dynamic way of inhabiting, where design, technology and refinement coexist with the good things from the old days.
