The relocation of Sant Antoni Sunday Market needed a site located near the old Market, which is nowadays being refurbished by our office. Only hosting a sales area one morning a week, it was needed to put in place reversible solutions that do not alter the space in its weekly configuration.

Yotsuya Tenera in Tokyo, Japan by Key Operation Inc.

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Article source: Key Operation Inc.

The project site is in a five-minute walk from Yotsuya Station located in a quiet residential area right behind the Shinjuku Street. This area holds many temples, shrines and also fairly dense housing. Like a spreading network of space, those houses and complexes fill the blank spaces between the streets and alleys.

This housing complex was planned to be built on the site of a crank space with 10m of the frontage and 17m in depth. Due to the regulation for Shinjuku Ward studio apartments, 12 units of the housing complex was planned out including 9 units of less than 30m² of the floor area and 3 units of more than 30 m².

Article source: Josep Lluís Mateo

On various occasions, we were asked to intervene in the most public areas of a lovely building dating from the 1950s (the work of the architect FrancescMitjans).

The entrance hall had been disfigured by a series of interventions that had rendered it complex and disjointed; we set out to clarify its function and its urban role.
