construction of social housing. The first phase has already established a public area around the main factory building and the chimney, connecting two empty spaces and eliminating traffic along Ferriol Street. Furthermore, it inverts the main access to the civic center in the building, placing it in the new plaza. The factory and the chimney were the only listed elements. For this reason the buildings affected by the new street have been partially demolished. In developing the project, however, the most valuable heritage elements have been recovered and will be integrated into the urban surroundings. The creation of an urban porch in the remaining part of the main building, the steam pavilion and the façade of another one of the warehouses emphasize the value of this industrial complex that comprised several pavilions for the different stages of the textile manufacturing process. The new arrangement of the public open spaces is organized by a concrete plinth connecting new Brotad Street with the preserved elements of the factory, generating a richer and more complex space paved with bands of quartzite stone combined with cast concrete slabs.
