Marfa Architects is a Barcelona based collective whose primary area of research is sustainable, compact living within densely populated areas. We understand the built substance that forms a city as a living organism that is adapted and changed by its inhabitants and creative private initiatives, rather than large building contractors working within parameters of rigid building codes and inflexible zoning plans. Compact living is about small spaces held within larger spaces, and how they overlap or interact with each other. Minimal space offers us the ideal framework for investigation of concepts such as flexibility, diffuse limits, the acoustics of the domestic space, function merging and reduction, as well as the relationship between the varying scales of the spaces within which we live. Our focus is directed to grassroots projects that respond to local climate, culture and habit, but the ideas inherent within them have capacity for export elsewhere.
Malina Lambrache is an architectural practice based in Barcelona, Spagna.
