Built by a housing cooperative in the 60s, this house is located in the upper side of Barcelona neighborhood. It is designed with bearing walls on its structure. There is also a difficulty of the aluminosis pathology in its structure, adding more challenges for the architect to do the refurbishment project in this house.
