The City of North Vancouver’s 38,000 sq. ft. renovation project expanded the existing 1970’s modern heritage building into a recently vacated library structure, with a new bridging atrium. The design team’s goal was to create a very public building; about the community and for the community. The design is open and transparent. The main link between all departments and the public is found in the 67 metre (220 foot) long atrium space. The design creates a flexible, productive working environment for the diverse services offered to the public in the building, and reinforces the city’s aspirations to showcase their new sustainable city mandate.

The project of CASA ARGUMOSA consists of the integral reform of an old flat in the area of ​​Lavapiés.

The original housing consisted of four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room, all of tiny dimensions. The structure was complex: it consisted of three facades on three different streets, and the angles between them generated three different axes, which left their mark on the partition and structure. The reform has as an idea to take advantage of the three facades of the house, which flood the house with light during all hours of the day, while adapting the housing program to the needs of the new client, a young man living alone: ​​a bedroom, A living room, a work area and a kitchen connected in an open concept. The solution provided consists of the design of a large piece of lacquered wood that contains a working area and that articulates and nourishes the other spaces. This piece of wood can be closed, containing a guest bedroom with bathroom and storage area, or open, converted into work, to the living area. The piece is exempt, so that the spaces are connected and, most importantly, allow the light to pour into the living area from morning to night.
