Case study of Omar, an immigrant who occupies a small house in Raval. He shares the apartment with three other people who are in a similar situation, with difficulties finding a job. Omar lives on what he can recycle and resell, which is why his house becomes a kind of warehouse and repair shop compounding the already existing problems of space in a house with poor lighting and ventilation. Its living space is, however, much wider. His house extends to the spaces it occupies during the day, the Rambla del Raval, the soup kitchen, the library, etc .; and that allows him to carry out the necessary activities that are impossible at his home. Omar lives on the street.
