Tipos de Espacios by Palma
Luis Diaz

Architects Palma and Hanghar have collaborated to create a thermal clay brick installation in a disused tobacco factory in Spain.


The project is located in the passage of the old tobacco factory of La Rioja, an urban space of narrow and elongated dimensions, filled by a monumental red brick chimney.

It was created as an installation for the Festival Internacional de Arquitectura y Diseño Concéntrico, and is a sequence of square rooms open to the sky that form a procession of corridors and spaces open to exploration.

Designed on a domestic scale far removed from the public space of the city, it transforms the occupant from visitor to inhabitant. The use of Spanish clay brick further lends new cultural meaning by turning it into both a constructive unit, as well as a visual and aesthetic one.


This project has been longlisted in the small building category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
