The project “Black & White Twins” experiments with the spatial and visual integration of compact collective housing solutions in the new exclusive urban development of Blaricummermeent, which is mainly formed by single-family houses and villas. The twin buildings provide affordable apartments within small-scale housing blocks, four levels high, minimizing the footprint of the intervention, the volume of the buildings and therefore their physical impact in the residential area.

The building is part of a set of trapezoidal shape that creates a courtyard. The building is divided into two volumes, a linear and rectangular block disposed along the street Sas, and another L-shaped block resting on the road. The elevation of the street facade is formed by the articulation of the two volumes that define a gap.

A landmark project completed as part of a waterside revitalization project – our three-part structure, comprising apartments, offices and artists’ studios, woven through, around and over the arched bays of a disused railway viaduct. Our buildings interact playfully with the viaduct, creating new exterior spaces and vistas.
As part of an initiative undertaken by the City of Vienna to revitalize the Wiener Guertel, a neglected urban hinterland which traditionally marked the ‘dividing line’ between indigenous Viennese and immigrant communities, we designed and constructed the Spittelau Viaducts Housing Project.

In a privileged place, at the end of a green meadow on the top of a hill and with the Avilés estuary on the horizon, two small metallic objects stand still upon a concrete basement and stare at the spectacle before their eyes. Dressed in a tailored suit which covers their head and torso, they protect themselves from the unpleasant rain and see the time going by.

The Urban Planning for ‘Plaça de l’Església’ in Granollers intends to regain the role of this square within the old part of town.
Our plot is the key factor for the consolidation of this centrality, due to it occupies the space that gives continuity to Barcelona Street and connects with ‘Plaça de la Porxada’.
The three facades of the building become a single skin that, thank to the continuous use of the stone even in the shutters, unifies the volume and consolidates the characteristic predominance of the massive-wall facades in the old quarter.

Atelier Kempe Thill has recently won an invited competition for 55 apartments, a dentist’s surgery, a mother child centre and a parking garage at the 18th arrondissement in Paris. The program is organized in two compact urban villas connected by a collective bamboo garden and the semi-underground garage. All apartments have flexible floor plans and glazed façade with sliding doors. A private winter garden is wrapped all along the façade functioning as an additional outside space and a climate buffer of the apartments.

This project was developed in Gandía, a town with a population of 75,000 to the south of Valencia. The aim was to develop a hybrid project that would function essentially as a student residence while meeting the requirements of social housing, with the corresponding standards and characteristics. The proposed program includes 102 apartments for young people, 40 apartments for senior citizens, and a civic and social centre for the town council.

What if we join forces?
– I am studying another semester in college, but this time there is a real problem to be solved and the project is built. Students
– I am still working during weekends to improve my neighborhood, but this time there are people who advise us and give us a hand to solve problems. Community
– I am still teaching architecture, but this time I am a consultant for a real project. Teachers
– I am still training professionals, but this time with social commitment. University
NOT extra work, NOT extra effort, but individual efforts together. This little change makes a big difference and multiplies the benefits for those involved.

Despite the guidelines drawn on the plots, places need to express their own personality, to arise naturally, to construct themselves. And concretely this one is aligned against a green area, against the concatenation of public spaces that link the old Carabanchel district with its forest through the new neighbourhood. In response to these conditions, the dwellings are compressed onto one edge, onto a single linear piece, in search for the genus loci of the place, views and an optimal orientation in which east and west share the south, generating the limit of the activity, soothing the interior and defining the exterior
