CAMPER STORE PASSEIG DE GRÀCIA
This Camper shop in Barcelona faces the Plaza Catalonia. In this project, they renewed the space with vaulted ceramic plates which were used as the form-work of floor slabs.
This was a revolutionary method of construction developed in Catalonia as previously, floors had been supported by wooden beams. The ground-breaking concept of this Catalan vault was a great inspiration to Gaudi throughout his works.
Here, the Catalan vault functions as the basic unit of the furniture, from shelves, to benches, and counters for the shoes, giving a warm and friendly atmosphere which reflects the culture of Catalonia.
