Metàfora is located in an old factory complex, one of the hidden gems in Barcelona, a privilege for any art student with imagination and flair for cracks and unpolished details. It is close to the centre but placed in one of Barcelona’s authentic, non-touristic areas.

The premises count three ample outdoor patios: The small courtyard with a greenhouse space for project work, the large courtyard with the turtle pond and several seating arrangements, the back entrance with its lovely atmosphere of a forgotten Barcelona.

In addition to large areas with personal studios, Metàfora houses several workshops (welding, woodwork), a kiln, class rooms and project spaces. For specific projects like painting on grand scale, installation building, photo shoots or video projection, students can book additional space to work in.
