Desigual is the Catalan fashion brand and you can find a lot of stores of the brand in Barcelona. Urban designer Ricardo Bofill is designing the new headquarters for this brand. It will be built next to the W Barcelona Hotel which is a glass office building that faces the Mediterranean Sea.
The building is inspired by the Barceloneta area, with narrow streets that lead into a shady interior plaza.
The ground floor is triangular shaped and it connects with the lines of both the Paseo de Borbon and the Paseo Maritimo starting at the Forum, and the Rosa dels Vents square on the West, a green and mineral plaza that emerges to confront the sea horizon. It is a spectacular concontribution by Bofill to the new Barcelona urban design.
The number of staff of Desigual will increase with 2.000 employees this year and there will be 180 new stores of Desigual all over the world.
The project will be completed by the end of 2012.
