In the old part of Amstelveen, stemming from the thirties, an office building and a pavilion together form the Bella Donna. The original buildings were designed in the sixties by the architect Webbers. They are situated on an island, surrounded by greenery and water and reachable via a bridge. The client was looking for a new office for his organization, when he came across the Bella Donna. Charmed by the green park-like setting he decided to settle in the pavilion, while the main building was re-designed to rent to others. This major renovation and expansion was the starting point to create a high-quality office near the Stadshart Amstelveen. The Bella Donna now has an exclusive look at a clearing in a woody area.

The site for this project is an existing 1960’s modern house with a 1980’s complementary addition. The Pool existed at the outset as well.
We were asked to design a new pool enclosure fence and Car Port that would be more consistent with the architecture of the house than the English trellis and dovecotes that existed when we began. All of this pre-dated the current owner.

The project anticipates the rearrangement of an already existent construction annexed to a small house, in a refuge pavilion with 50 m².
The implanting of the new building follows the limits of this existent construction in the west side, recycling small stone. The opposite side is rebuilt, realigned and, reusing the granite header from the best walls, is created an uncovered yard that serves as entrance and, at the same time, decompresses the proximity with the neighbouring house. This reconstructed element melts itself with the new construction interlinking the granite wall with horizontal slate plates of 3 cm in thickness placed in small stone cubes making a continuous grate that draws the building.

Orchid House Gateway Pavilion into Simpson Park Hammock. The structure is part of the first phase of a public-private partnership to revitalize the historic park and return it to the community. The pavilion embodies a symbiotic relationship between nature and architecture as the structure embraces and becomes interwoven within the diverse indigenous canopy of the hammock while minimizing ecological site impact.

The Head in the Clouds Pavilion on New York City’s Governors Island comes out of the desire to create a ‘place to dream in the city of dreams’. Made from 53,780 recycled plastic bottles – the amount, thrown away in New York City in 1 hour – it is a space where visitors can enter into and contemplate the light and color filtering through the ‘cloud’ from the inside, out.

The San Lucas Pavilion is, fundamentally, a reinforced concrete structure, barely 15 cm wide, which is arranged based on screens and one-meter edge beams, constraining an 11×11 meter square ground plan, in the limit between a lush pine forest and a very clean and carefully kept prairie.

The medicine Faculty completes the facilities on the Arrixaca Hospital grounds. The nature of the site and the brief give it a degree of independence from the rest of the precinct in both its use and character, eschewing the peculiar hospital image.
The project is understood as a neutral, compact, petrous box with four and two heights. Inwardly ‘projected void’ are used to tense the box and generate spaces in diverse scales and qualities. The vestibule space thus arises from the confrontation between two voids of a different nature, one measuring 15 x 15 x 15 m (interior) and the other 9 x 9 x 6 m (exterior) which compress and tense it vertically. The transition between the successive episodes: void (entrance space), vertical vestibule space and void (central patio), each one with its own properties, sets the main time and spatial theme of the project.
