Sgraffito is a wall decor technique produced by applying two superposed layers of plaster tinted in contrasting colours to a moistened surface. After scratching the second layer so as to reveal parts of the underlying layer, another colour appears in its surface.

The challenge of research in this facade is recovering the textures from an analysis of the motifs and colours of the most significant sgraffito eighteenth century facades in Barcelona, evoking the characteristic sgraffito facades. In this research a new technique of sgraffito is developed whose result is the use of reliefs, colors and textures in precast concrete panels.
