The project site is located inside the green area called Rhike Park, in Tbilisi, Georgia. The building consists of two different soft shaped elements that are connected as a unique body at the retaining wall. Every elements has his own function: The Musical Theatre and the Exhibition Hall. The north part of the building contains the Musical Theatre Hall (566 seats), the foyer and several facilities, together with technical spaces for theatre machinery and various storages. The Exhibition Hall opens his great entrance with a ramp that brings visitors from the street level. The Music Theatre Hall, on the contrary, soars from the ground and allows the users staying in the foyer and in the cafeteria to have a view to the river and the skyline of the city. It is a periscope to the city and looks towards the river framing the historic core of the Old Tbilisi.
The facility includes a Chelation Clinic, Integrated Dental Domes, a Healing Clinic and individual Bungalows for patient’s private residence. Overlooking Al Ain Lake and the oasis surroundings, the tower rests to the ground on pilotis which minimizes impacts on coast line. Likewise, offshore bungalows frees the littoral from construction.

A linking structure on the Boulevard Périphérique between Paris and Aubervilliers, the Claude Bernard overpass, which bears the distinctive stamp of the DVVD architecture, design and engineering agency, has been in service since 2nd October 2015. Sympathetic to its environment, this sculpted structure, formed entirely of curves, is a strong landmark in the changing panorama of the capital.
Gorraiz, on the outskirts of Pamplona, is a recently developed upscale residential area whose architectures draw inspiration mainly from those of the past. Rare here are the houses with an autonomous and contemporary design. The only peculiarity of the plot where this house rises is its elevated position, affording views onto the golf courses of the lower part of the housing development. The design scheme starts from an abstract interpretation of the urban codes, by which at least 60% of the roof must have at least a 35% slope. Understood in strictly geometric and abstract terms, the codes define a section where exactly 60% of its linear progress must have a 35% slope, the remaining 40% of the roof being almost flat. With this initial section, the project attempts to make the most of the features of the resulting volume. The higher level contains the living areas, whereas the bedrooms and indoor swimming pool are beneath the flat part of the roof. A series of incisions articulate the different areas of the house and bring natural light into those that are farther apart from the perimeter, the largest of which is a courtyard that goes all the way down to the basement.
EDAA´s most recent Project is YÁCATAS 475, a building that creates a design experience throughout the entire development process (design, management, construction, sales) narrowing the bridge between Architecture and Real State.
Second and third floor spaces of the Clinical Research Center for Medical Equipment Development (CRCMeD) at Kyoto University Hospital. These two floors, occupied by Canon Inc. and Kyoto University, will become the future site for projects developed in collaboration between people lending their expertise to research initiatives and a great number of supporters. The thoughts of each of these people working in various fields will come together in this space, bringing together a convergence of knowledge and skills that will create new possibilities. The design expresses the invisible “threads” that connect each of these different thoughts to one another, just like how threads are spun together to create a strong, supple fabric. Specifically, ito (Japanese for “thread”) is used as a motif that would bridge the second and third floors of this research center, designing a space that came together in a single, massive flow. Just like how new possibilities emerge out of encounters between people, a spectrum of different colors appear at the junctions between threads, creating chromatic combinations that resemble landscapes: field green, sky blue, light cherry pink, snow white, dusky orange, and white horizons.

The project is located at a small village in the North area of the municipality of Lorca (Murcia), inhabited by some 150 people, and belongs to a plan developed by the city council to promote the permanence of young people at their hometowns. Designing a project with this purpose made us think, in the first place, about the idea of belonging to a roughly defined group- in this particular case the young people from Las Terreras- but expressing, in the second place, the individuality of each of its members.

Benelong Crescent apartments are inspired by the sinuous forms of Erich Mendelsohn’s Einstein Tower in Potsdam, completed in the 1920’s. The apartments cascade down the hill to follow the contours and the curved terraced balconies are shaped by the irregular boundaries of the site, rounded off by the prevailing winds.
The 19th century building rests on a hill in Crucoli, a small Italian hilltown above the Ionic Sea. The old quarry stone house is squeezed into the organic urban structure and sits right on the steep edge of the hill. This specific situation provides the house with a terrific view into the Sila mountains and defines the spatial layout. So technical improvements went together with the reorganzation of rooms.
