On the east side of the city of Barcelona and close to the sea, the « Antares » tower is a rehabilitation project as well as a change of function for an existing building. Through elevation and façade treatment, the building is transformed into a high-end residential tower.
From the existing concrete structure, large balconies are added at all levels to provide the apartments with an outdoors space and to protect the full glass facades from direct sunlight. The top elevation includes a relaxation area and a swimming pool. At the foot of the tower a spa is laid out, a restaurant, and a garden with accompanying services.
