The Masters of Design and Innovation discovered the old part of Avilés in its historic quarter, porticoed houses, churches, gardens, etc., and they saw its most modern and industrial side, at the Global R+D centre of ArcelorMittal, with the modular architecture of the [Baragaño] studio.
The young creatives took on the challenge of identifying new market opportunities and applications for the modular architecture of [Baragaño] and the project developed along with ArcelorMittal: B Home. A modular home and office system based entirely on galvanised steel, built in a factory and transported to their final location.
