Arquitectura Apartments

Flexible wayfinding design features adapting to a Barcelona apartment building

Arquitectura 2&4 is a residential building in Barcelona, with 60 apartments divided in 3 sections. Wayfinding was needed for newcomers 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'.
