The commission was to refurbish the biggest classroom of Elisava Design School of Barcelona to convert it into an auditorium.

A big platform with a step section was created to compensate the space's exaggerated length while foam panels were placed to improve acoustical performance. The panels hid the lightning which was adaptable to different programmatic requirements. The design intentionally sought to create a chromatic and semantic contrast between the historical charm of the space, the old Commerce Chamber of Barcelona and its new function.
