Recently opened to the public "Escaleras y Mirador Vela" is the new project of the architecture firm External Reference, led by architect Carmelo Zappulla, which for the first time generates a connection between the Passeig del Mare Nostrum and the Plaça de la Rosa dels Vents, on the beachfront of La Barceloneta.
最近对外开放的“Escaleras y Mirador Vela”是外部参考建筑公司的新项目,由建筑师Carmelo Zappulla领导,它首次在Passeig del Mare Nostrum和Plaça de la Rosa dels Vents之间建立联系,位于巴塞罗那的海滨。

The project interprets a special port context: the connection develops a new relationship with the W Hotel, where the strong tides of the sea coexists with a unique concentration of people and users who carry out all kinds of outdoor and leisure activities on a daily basis.

According to the requirements of Nova Bocana, the commissioner of the project, it was necessary to design a solution that eliminated the existing cul de sac and connect the two existing different levels using the existing seawall as support. This provided an opportunity to generate a new façade for the Passeig del Mare Nostrum.
根据该项目负责人Nova Bocana的要求,设计师必须消除现有的死胡同,并利用现有的海堤作为支撑,将现有的两个不同的楼层连接起来。这为Passeig del Mare Nostrum提供了一个建造新的立面的机会。

"This project on one hand is inevitable, and on the other, very representative. The
culmination of Passeig del Mare Nostrum with a walkable façade is proposed as a
fundamental element that reconfigures the city's relationship with the sea." – says architect
Carmelo Zappulla, founder of External Reference.
Passeig del Mare Nostrum的顶点与一个可步行的立面被提议作为一个
重新配置城市与海洋关系的基本要素。“ -Carmelo Zappulla, External Reference创始人

The design was conceived as a tectonic element that derives its morphology from the formations of the salt crystals that grow in the small Mediterranean water reservoirs, captured by the irregularities and accidents of the marine rocks. Based on this phenomenon, the staircase "crystallizes" in the existing nook at the intersection of the promenade of the Barcelona coastline with the monumental seawall that protects it from the rush of the Mediterranean tides.

From a compositional point of view, Escaleras y Mirador Vela is developed as a sculpture between two walls, the existing seawall and the new façade that opens up to the promenade, inviting the public to experience a new urban space that projects towards the sea and generates a balcony overlooking the Mediterranean and the city.
从组合的角度来看,Escaleras y Mirador Vela被开发为两堵墙之间的雕塑,现有的海堤和向长廊开放的新立面,邀请公众体验一个面向大海的新城市空间,并生成一个俯瞰地中海和城市的阳台。

The new promenade is composed by a staircase and elevated walkway of a prefabricated concrete structure. The new façade it creates toward the seafront promenade is cladded with triangular concrete bio-receptive panels that incorporates the use of low-maintenance vegetation and a lighting system.

The panels were optimised utilizing parametric strategies and designed in a way that encourages the surface growth of native plants (Lobularia Maritima, Lampranthus Spectabilis and Drosanthemum Floribundum). In addition, it integrates a fiber optic lighting system that makes its surface vibrate at sunset.

"We have designed a unique place for the city, a space where you can not only appreciate
looking towards the horizon of the sea but where you can discover new viewpoints from the
sea to Barcelona, the great protagonist of this project. We believe that the path will act as a
catalyst that transforms the dynamics between the square and the promenade which,
although they are adjacent spaces, until now had separate activities. Now, they are dialogic
parts of a chain of discoveries and experiences that pass through Escaleras y Mirador Vela"
Zappulla explains.
“我们为城市设计了一个独特的地方,在这个空间里,你不仅可以欣赏大海的地平线,还可以发现从大海到巴塞罗那的新视野,巴塞罗那是这个项目的伟大主角。我们相信,这条路径将作为一种催化剂,改变广场和长廊之间的动态关系,尽管它们是相邻的空间,但到目前为止,它们有独立的活动。现在,它们是贯穿Escaleras和Mirador Vela的发现和体验链的对话部分。”Zappulla解释道。

The project consists of a reinforced concrete stairway of 48 steps that bridge a difference in height of 8.50 meters along a linear route of 48.45 meters. The elevated walkway is also made of reinforced concrete and is located at a height of +9.30 meters and a length of 42.70 meters.
In the development of the project, External Reference has collaborated with Pigra engineering for structural calculations and project management.

The entire building is accessible and walkable underneath, having access through a sliding door that allows easy access to maintenance.
