To come back. Inhabiting the farm where he grew up. This action determines the intervention. The client inherited a stable and chose this spot to be his last home.

There is no decoration when we talk about designing for animals. Cows do not have aesthetic whims.

Restoration and redesign of the Grand-Palais des Champs-Élysées in Paris, France by by LAN Architecture

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

THE NEW GRAND PALAIS: AN EXAMPLE OF MODERNITY

To our contemporary eyes, the Grand Palais is both an idea and a symbol of modernity. It is a hybrid building in terms of its architecture, its usage and its history. Neither a museum nor a simple monument, its architecture has an identity all its own, centered around the notion of a “culture machine,” a spatial means for hosting a vast diversity of events and audiences that exponentially exalts the site’s “universal” and “republican” vocation. The restoration and restructuring of the entire monument affords us the chance to reinforce this aspiration.

In 1985, after 118 years of brewing along the San Antonio River, Pearl Brewery closed its doors. In 2002 planning work for the redevelopment of Pearl Brewery into a vibrant mixed-use district began.

Article source: Martin Lejarraga Architect

The city of Cartagena is full of scars that have marked its layers at varying depths (“the puff pastry city”, Carlos García Vázquez) throughout the city’s history.

And it is among these layers and between party walls where one must attempt to preserve the life of the city, through interventions involving the renovation, revitalization and regeneration of the residential urban weave, of the dwelling, which, in sum, is the use that maintains and accelerates the pace of the city.

The retaining wall to the rear that anchors the house to the hillside was extremely lovely. As well as expressing the effort of retaining the earth, it concentrated in one place the oven and the point of collection of the water that filters through it.
