Carles Enrich Studio, Historic Tower


It was to highlight the eroded footprint of a 12th-century castle that the Catalan architect Carles Enrich set about restoring the Merola Tower in Puigreig, a municipality of Barcelona province. The project was urgent, following the 2016 collapse of the top of the town wall, and thanks to it, the remains of the original construction were consolidated. Too, the old composition of volumes was recovered visually by means of a sculptural timber structure composed of square-sectioned profiles. These sustain a platform from which one can contemplate the surrounding Mediterranean landscape.
