This project is a tribute to the use of Mediterranean light implemented by Antoni Gaudi in Casa Batlló in 1906.
While in Casa Batlló the eight-storey central patio captures the natural light and distributes it evenly to all the corners of the house, in the new project this vertical travel is done in the eight-storey enclosed space of the existing emergency stairs, using artificial light.
Creating a journey from the bright sky of the rooftop to the dark depths of the coal cellar on the basement. The new staircase concludes the outstanding experience of this World Heritage site.
