Cadaval Estudio has the designed the recovery of El Teatro in Barcelona, Spain.

This project aims to recover and capitalise on the spatial and constructive values ​​of the old theatre in Barcelona by exposing its tectonic essences and exploit the amplitude that gives the great height of its large diaphanous central space.

El Teatro (the name that has maintained the building despite the change in its uses) is located in the geographical heart of Barcelona at the buoyant tech district 22 @ in the Poblenou neighbourhood.

The access area is divided through a small hall into three independent areas: two studios – one on each side – and in the middle, the main access to the house. The studios are illuminated by two large windows that establish a direct relationship with the street and recover the original facade of the theatre.

This project has been longlisted in the residential rebirth project category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
