Following an international competition, Barozzi Veiga’s proposal for the PortziX Architecture Competition was selected as the winning design. Ideally located on the cliff, facing the Atlantic Ocean and overlooking the Goulet de Brest, the new building for Exail group is conceived as a compact and pragmatic project open towards the landscape. The expression of the architecture is concentrated in the slim shape of its volume, completed by some adjunct elements, influenced by a certain naval world. The design meets a series of demanding challenges, ranging from the adaptability and flexibility of the spaces, the minimization of the building’s environmental impact, as well as the cohesion and well-being of the employees desired for this site.

The design transforms an old watch shop located in the building Casa Mumbrú, an original construction from 1882 corresponding to Pere Puig Poch and reformed, between 1912 and 1919, by the modernist architects Juli Maria Fossas. In this context, the new store’s facade is defined as an element that gives continuity to what surrounds it and, at the same time, as a singular moment in the whole, an entrance. Familiar and alien at the same time, a simple dark metal door enigmatically appears between two of the columns of the building in which the store is located.

In an industrial area that has undergone recent significant transformation, the proposal creates an oasis that is both a place of quiet for artists and a space of encounter with the local community, highlighting the civic value of the institution.

The balance between intimacy and openness towards the neighbourhood is expressed by the apparently hermetic urban plinth, which allows a glimpse of the garden from the entry passage, and by the landscape of towers which serve variously as skylights, wind catchers, solar chimneys and water tanks, creating a highly efficient bioclimatic environment and expressing the importance of light and climate as elements of the project.
