General Services Building of Cruces Hospital in Barakaldo, Spain by ACXT Arquitectos

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

Article source: ACXT Arquitectos

Due to its location, the new General Services Building of the Cruces Hospital takes a predominant position from the highway and acquires a strong importance in the surroundings. The building is provided with symbolic value and reflects its activity by means of the façade. The façade is generated by a pattern of proteins, as it might be the image associated to the medical vanguard and research.

Vegamar Selección Wine Shop, located on the main shopping street of town, is a space for wine tasting and sales.

The project aims to transmit the quality of the exposed products, as well as to maximize the feeling of amplitude inside the shop.

Dark, glossy panels are chosen for vertical surfaces. Due to their tone and reflections, they blur the spatial limits of the establishment, making it seem bigger than what it really is. The colour of this material also refers to the colour of the displayed wines. These vertical surfaces lodge storage space and allow for a regularization of the available geometry.

It settles down on the area of 260 sq.m., from them 130 sq.m – the residential zone, the second part – a recreation area. The house is intended for a young family which likes to have a rest outdoors. As well as in all my projects, here I follow style minimalism with emphasis on texture of materials.

The New Suresnes Museum in France by Encore Heureux and AAVP

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

Article source: Metropolis Communication

A coloured concrete monolith extends the existing station to host the MUS, the town’s museum of urban and social history. The extension forms the foundation for the station, with its smooth, slightly tilted façade unfolding and running up to the surrounding retaining walls. The station has been preserved in its original form, and the new foundation creates a space for a raised terrace which can be used for openings, educational events or outdoor exhibitions.
