Dirk and the Chocolate Factory

Dirk and the Chocolate Factory

In La Bisbal, on a block from the late nineteenth century there is a former chocolate factory. It is a three-floor structure with a stone-bearing facade, each floor made using a different technique. The project adapts what was initially an industrial building to a studio and housing space for a family that values the character of the original building.The project therefore proposes a solution that allows for the enjoyment of the original diaphanous spaces, while introducing small modifications and solutions that grant sight of the three ceilings, despite the new space distribution that requires smaller spaces. The original staircase is preserved, and a new staircase is added. In this way, the owner’s different members of the family can enjoy a part of the house with a good level of privacy and autonomy. Taking into account the fantastic Mediterranean climate of the Empordà, the outdoor spaces are adapted to the new use, with a small pool in the center of the patio surrounded by the new leisure uses.
