Arquitectura Apartments

A contemporary wayfinding system that features an innovative approach to sign design for this Barcelona residential building

Arquitectura 2&4 is a residential building in Barcelona, with 60 apartments divided in 3 sections. Wayfinding was needed for new residents, visitors and deliveries to navigate through the long corridors connecting each section. One of the main features of the system is the variable width of signs. The wider the sign the further the destination is. The design also allows the sign to ‘flex up’ to elegantly show the difference between 'straight ahead' and 'take the stairs'.

The wider the sign, the longer the walking distance
