Refugi temporal / Clara Torrelles

Clara Torrelles / ESDAP Catalunya / Campus Ondara

Refugi temporal (Temporary shelter) is a hostel for the seasonal workers who come to Lleida province each summer to harvest fruit in the fields. The hostel is in Vilanova del Segrià, a town with a lot of farmland for both fruit and cereals.

This project proposes creating a place to stay and thus to solve the problem of housing for seasonal workers. Its main objective is to establish locally an easy-to-make, economical space in respectable condition. The project therefore involves interior design with recovered, recycled, and locally sourced materials to reduce expenditure on mobility and to generate a profit for the area’s producers.
