Ibiza Brues in Spain by CMV Architects

The residential complex tries to emphasize the equality of the houses opening them towards the sea and avoiding the frontal views between the different parts of the same volume, managing to increase the sense of space. Therefore, a sinuous floor is designed directing the view of each unit towards different points of the bay. The building is made up of two volumes different in terms of uses, volumes and aesthetics. The main one is a ground floor with six plant floors above, whereas the secondary one rises in two heights assigned to be back-to-back duplex attached houses.

The High School building completes the group of classroom-buildings; therefore it resumes the usual typology of the existing buildings, a central open space and peripheral classrooms. It’s also chosen to use brick walls, the prevailing material in the school. The particular variation consists in developing a sinuous atrium with an internal garden. The exterior is defined by two closed sides facing the large green extensions, and by two glass facades with vertical sun shields where the classrooms operate.

City Centre in Nieuwegein, The Netherlands by Bureau B+B Urbanism and Landscape Architecture

In its earliest phase, at the start of the 1970s, construction activity in ‘new town’ Nieuwegein concentrated on its residential areas. Around when the city centre was about to have its turn, the economic climate offered little space for financing. The result was an introverted, cheap-looking shopping mall. Like many other ‘new towns’, Nieuwegein now faces the task of transforming the old shopping mall into a new vibrant heart. The structure inherited from the 1970s is to be subjected to a comprehensive revision.
