Inclined elevator in Font d'en Fargues in Horta Guinardó district

La Davallada de Gallecs, in the district of Horta-Guinardó, has a great unevenness in very little development from its meeting with Trèvol street to its crowning in Alt de Pedrell street. Previously, this unevenness was solved by means of a staircase that occupied the entire street.

Re urbanize

The basic outline of the proposal is to take advantage of the width of the existing street to implement an inclined elevator on one side and redevelop the rest of the area to configure a new scale that bridges the slope and at the same time allows the creation of boarding areas at the elevator stops.

An inclined elevator with side access is proposed. The route has three stops, the low point, the high point, and approximately at mid-height (which will be canceled until its operation is required), in anticipation of possible access to the extension of the existing school.
