Article source: Barbosa & Guimaraes Architects

Gouveia, door for entry to the Serra da Estrela, is going to be served by new Law Courts.

The land set aside for construction is located between the public gardens, at the end of the Rampa do Monte do Calvário, replacing an existing building. The project takes advantage of the demolition of the existing building, which occupied the whole of the plot, to design a new Plaza, with a scale and dignity to receive the Law Courts.

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

Since the end of the Francisco Franco era, when government spending was drastically cut in Spain, the demand for social housing has steadily continued to rise. Taking into consideration eighty percent of Spain’s population are homeowners and the citizens’ strong candid views towards rental housing – the availability of affordable public housing has slowly dwindled. For the past 25 years, Empresa Municipal de la Vivienda y el Suelo de Madrid (EMVS), the state-run housing association, has been spearheading architectural innovation throughout Madrid. By inviting internationally renowned foreign architects to team-up with local firms – the EMVS is rethinking the notion of modern-day social housing in Spain.

The location of the planned construction is part of the central city area where transformation of the existing building structure is in process. Thanks to its position, next to the railway line, by the beginning of the last century this area was selected for construction of different industrial complexes, warehouses, and public services. During the last ten years, this transformation has intensified, with the tendency of replacing industrial and public service facilities with pronouncedly high-rise structures, built in corresponding standards.
