H Arquitectes - Cristalleries Planell 1015 Civic Center, Barcelona 2017. Located in the partial remains of the turn of a century and heritage-listed glass factory, it houses an adult education center, hotel, and language education facilities. The infill is set back from the protected historic facade, creating ideal lighting conditions as well as an acoustic and thermal barrier. Three massive solar chimneys aid in air displacement and natural ventilation to naturally cool the building in the summer months. Via HIC, photos © Adrià Goula.
