Signage for Can Carol a new community centre located in a restored old farmhouse in the Vallcarca neighbourhood of Barcelona.
The area has a long tradition of counterculture, still visible through the squatted buildings and walls covered with tags and stenciled graffiti.
We borrowed the idea of stenciled lettering for the signage system. On the exterior, large letters cover the three visible facades so that the words Can Carol can be read from all angles. The result treats the building with the grandeur that it deserves while giving a nod to its location.
