AJ100 practice ORMS has lodged plans for its first scheme in Spain – 700 new homes in Barcelona
The proposed new homes along the Avinguda Meridiana, one of Barcelona’s main thoroughfares, will house both students and first time renters.
Plans for the 30,000m² scheme on an infill site also include a pool, cafes, a bike shop, workspaces, and a series of ’inter-locking social spaces’ orientated around a central courtyward.
Richard Warwick, director at ORMS, said the scheme would mark both the practice’s Spanish debut and also its first student-led residential building.
If the plans are approved, the project is scheduled for completion in 2019.
