Creativity Studio in Alicante, Spain by ggarchitects

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

Article source: ggarchitects

The project is born out of chef Quique Dacosta’s will to open to clients the creativity studio of his 3 Michelin stars restaurant, allowing people to have a gastronomic experience in the studio itself.

Because of Dacosta’s creativity and unconformity, what once started as a chef’s table ended up influencing the entire space. The influence was global, and all the knowledge, tools and techniques developed created new paths, new potential in two areas.

House Between The Pine Forest in Paterna, Spain by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

Article source: Fran Silvestre Arquitectos 

Twenty-one plateaus and seven volumes tell the story of this house.

The aim of the project is to give a new and even identity to a house belonging to the same family for several generations. The original house formed by the aggregation of different interventions at different times, with different construction systems. Each of the rooms in the house describes a moment in life of this family story. Thus it was essential to maintain the structure, spaces, uses, garden and memories, presenting them in a new way.

REFURBISHMENT SIMÓN BUILDING in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain by Equipo Olivares architects

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

Article source: Equipo Olivares architects

This project intervened in a site resulting from gutting the interior of two historic (listed) buildings. We conceived the new building from the conservation of the historic façades, whose stability was assured by buttressing them with a metallic structure. Taking these façades as our starting point, we worked out a strategy to erect one building where two stood previously. We then set out to consolidate the height of the new slabs. To bridge the gap in preexisting elevations, we placed the open staircase-patio on the front of the building at no. 33, setting back the new volumen. In this way, the slabs would not face old gaps.
