LEBOND House, located in Barcelona and fully designed by the LEBOND design team, is the headquarters of LEBOND Watches, an exclusive watch editor that creates unique watch editions designed by prestigious architects and inspired by their architectural style. The aim of the LEBOND House project was to create a warm, serene, and inspiring workplace for the team.
The brutalist building is divided into two floors. The lower floor has open spaces for group interactions and to facilitate creativity. In contrast, the upper floor has separate rooms to perform individual tasks that require a high degree of concentration.
The building's main openings, all facing south, seek to optimise the sunlight and to provide charming views of the natural surroundings. Two site-cast concrete porches added to the main volume protect the openings of the south facade from rain and direct summer solar radiation.
The most characteristic architectural element of the project is the exposed ceiling made of Revoltón Catalán. This construction technique is typical of traditional Catalan Architecture and is present in both interior and exterior spaces to emphasise indoor-outdoor connections.
