Can Llimona – Anteproyecto in Barcelona, Spain by MESURA

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

Article source: MESURA 

A construction with an architectural character and segregated in several parts with a large common garden, was what Lluís Clotet and José Antonio Martínez La Peña were looking for in the late eighties to live. The result of the search was to find a majestic “mansion” in Alella, which consists of an old Cottage from 1778 reformed and enlarged in a large Modernist house in 1909. After the discovery, the house was segregated by floors, causing each Tenant would have a floor.

Caledonian Somosaguas in Madrid, Spain by Studio MK27

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

Article source: Studio MK27 

Density or looseness?  Intensity or laid-backness?  Public or private? Urban or suburban?  The problem in creating new housing on the edge of the city is to somehow synthesise all of these seeming opposites – not to choose between them but to lift a little from them all to create a new cocktail of the familiar and the foreign, the everyday and the exotic.
