In celebration of batlleiroig‘s 40th anniversary, various media corporations such as TV3 and Catalunya Ràdio reported on the company’s long history over all these years of experience.

As the founding partners of the studio, Enric Batlle and Joan Roig, explain in the TV3 Noticies interview, this trajectory began in 1981 with the project for the metropolitan cemetery of Roques Blanques in El Papiol, with a design and concept that understood this space as a garden. Today the firm is still working on this project, after 40 years and with new challenges, taking into account social changes and adapting to new requirements through landscape and nature.

During his career Batlleiroig has added projects of great relevance such as the Camí del Bosc, the office building in Carrer Tànger or the landscape recovery of the Garraf landfill, projects that have been awarded and mentioned in various media, such as the Catalunya Ràdio programme Perspectiva.

Throughout this time the studio has positioned itself with the aim of merging city and nature, with strategies such as connecting different municipalities in the metropolitan area of Barcelona through the existing natural geographies.

Thanks to its experience and the combination of speciality and transversality between different disciplines such as urban planning, landscape and architecture, batlleiroig has managed to continue to achieve success.
