Vil·la Uránia Barcelona Carl Stahl Architektur Fassadensicherung




Barcelona is one of the most family-friendly cities in Europe. The city administration always takes this social orientation into account with special construction and renovation projects. The Villa Urània is one such project. Formerly the home of the renowned astronomer Josep Comas i Solà, it has now become a place for families with children. The existing building was expanded by a top modern building complex. People can look down from every floor to enjoy the natural courtyards. To ensure the highest level of safety here, a lot was secured with the X-TEND stainless steel cable network.

Green building materials such as the X-TEND stainless steel cable

In addition to safety, the X-TEND stainless steel cable network from CARL STAHL ARCHITEKTUR offers another plus for the builders and the residents. Almost all of the materials that make up the Villa Urània today have been selected and installed due to their low environmental impact. Here, the X-TEND stainless steel cable network blends seamlessly into environmental and resource conservation. The X-TEND stainless steel cable network was selected for the construction of the Villa Urània, as it is constructed from 100% recyclable stainless steel. This fact and the many other great features of the house have led to Villa Urània being awarded the Green Solutions Award 2017.

Villa Urània as one of the most beautiful architectural highlights

The city of Barcelona operates the Villa Urània in the Sarrià-Sant Gervasi district. In addition to the family room for parents with their children, a children's home and a community center are integrated here. In addition to this building designed by the architectural firm Sumo Arquitectes, the capital of Catalonia is home to such wonderful building treasures as…

  • the Gran Teatre del Liceu,
  • the Parc Güell,
  • the Casa Batlló
  • the Sagrada Familia
  • or also the Catedral Basilica Metropolitana de Barcelona.

In addition to the X-TEND stainless steel cable net, the building from the 19th century also gives the Lunawood thermowood terraces a modern visual look. The facade of the building can even be closed with large panels.
