Medical and Research Centres are complex and sensitive subjects, simply because they not only represent an induction of prevailing and current thought processes but more also feature an attempt to peer into the looking glass that is the future. They should also reflect levels of knowledge and sensitivity that culminate in excellence of patient care, in terms of both the body and the mind, whilst incorporating technologies and approaches to diagnosis, treatment planning and therapy that are currently relevant, but are capable of change and expansion in the future.
An integral refurbishment of an existing villa at Puerto de Andratx, Mallorca. Spain, designed by the team JAIME SALVÁ, Architecture & Interior Design.

The project occupies the specific setting of a corner block that, in particular, provides it with an unobstructed view over urban Paris to the south as well as allowing it to complete the urban system established by Christian Devillers. There are two types of housing typologies: 16 individual townhouses and a building containing 54 collective housing units. The houses are laid out along green spaces and passageways that organize views over the rest of the block. The collective building has an “indented” form that allows each housing unit to profit from favorable views and generously proportioned exterior spaces.
After years living in China and Switzerland, the owners of this home decided to settle in Londrina. This Brazilian and Portuguese / Swiss couple wanted to provide a quiet, tranquil home, in which to raise their two children, away from busy urban centers. With this in mind and after much searching, they chose a house close to both quality schools and other important community services.
Unfortunately, the house didn’t meet the family’s expectations so they decided to do a major renovation to both the internal and exterior areas of the home.

A children’s museum in essence should be a space that encourages children’s mind and produce a sense of discovery by playing. That’s why the concept of Labyrinth of Crete arises as the starting point for the Children’s Museum – Iztapalapa.
The city of Jacou’s wedding hall and municipal room project needed to be rethought at the crossroads of several axes and scales. The aim was to change the use of an existing building located in the town center. In order to fully integrate these new functions and to establish a strong link between the city hall and the marriage hall, a consistency of materiality has been set up in this project. The interventions on the ground and the facades have been proportionate to the respect of an harmonious work, focussing on the balance between heritage and contemporary creation. Thus, this new program is associated with a generous public space accessible to everyone.
The house is located in a privileged area of ground in terms of views, orientation, etc.. so the shape of the house adapts to the existing, respecting the existence of a large rock cliff and a number of native trees. Both the shape of the house as its program does not serve the purpose of intervening the natural landscape. that is why the house is composed of two volumes connected by a bridge way around the rock and adapt to the position of the trees.
The main floor sits at garden level. It contains the common spaces, beginning with a view balcony at the front of the house that extends from the living room, back to a large, kitchen/dining area that opens to rear, outdoor living spaces.
