Single House Re-Using a Former Water Cistern in Madrid, Spain by Valdivieso Arquitectos

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

Article source: Valdivieso Arquitectos 

Building a single-occupancy home over a former water cistern was the starting point of the project. The site, subsequently altered over time, reached its final configuration circa 1955. It has two levels, facing south, and has remained unaltered since then. The site is part of a low-density suburban environment, which belongs to a development model distinctive of peripheral areas, characteristic of the first third of the 20th century as the summer stays residential areas in the mountain range of Madrid. The site contains typical scrubland vegetation, increased with non-native but suitable species, conditioned by the region´s dry continental climate (very warm summers and very cold winters).

Renovation for The New Headquarters in Málaga, Spain by GANA Arquitectura

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

Article source: GANA Arquitectura 

Anytime you have to design a place to work, able to communicate its company philosophy and foster its activity development, it is an atractive and difficult challenge; but if this office is going to be your new headquarters, this challenge gets huge and powerful.

For us, this project for GANA’s new headquarters emerged full of ideas and illusion, based on a place with great location and possibilities. Features as the traditional flooring tiles from the 30’s, views to Santiago’s church, or the access from Alcazabilla street, make of this project a valuable opportunity. Thus, the key of this design is to empower the existing elements, as an oposition to the contemporary elements required for the activity itself.

Interior Design in the Parrote Car Park in Galicia, Spain by Díaz y Díaz Arquitectos

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

Article source: Díaz y Díaz Arquitectos

The Parrote car park is already a reality eleven years after the works had been awarded and after four years stoped, between 2008 and 2012, during this time it was necessary to adapt the project to the archaeological remains that were found in the area.   The car park has two entrances. You can access both by Puerta Real and by the San Anton Castle. In the case of the first, this is a temporary entry while the tunnel in construction to connect the underground of the Marina is not ended, which will connect with the Parrote, the entrance will be located underground. The car park has 610 spaces.

The Cement Factory in Sant Just Desvern, Spain by Ricardo Bofill Taller De Arquitectura

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Article source: Ricardo Bofill Taller De Arquitectura 

I found enormous silos, a tall smokestack, four kilometres of underground tunnels, and machine rooms in good shape. This was twenty five years ago and it was my first encounter with the Cement Factory.

I already imagined future spaces and noticed that the different aesthetic and plastic tendencies that had developed since World War 1 were present in this factory.

The Hidden Pavilion in Madrid, Spain by Penelas Architects

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Article source: Penelas Architects 

The Project fulfills the desire to Build a space for meditation and retreat, a place to Inhabit and to Think. The pavilion is built in a glade of the forest, the only clearing without a tree. It is wrapped up in Nature, hidden in it, in a way that it is only slightly perceptible. Suspended over a small waterfall, the pavilion protects it. The pavilion interacts directly with the growing of trees, allowing them to pass through its terraces and cantilevers by gaps built for them.

Social housing in Palma, Spain by studio RIPOLLTIZON

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Article source: studio RIPOLLTIZON

The project is located in ‘Pere Garau’ neighbourhood. The area was formerly characterized by blocks of single family houses with inner courtyards that followed a typical grid plan. Once the district became central in the city, amendments to the urban planning increased the building volumes significantly and changed the typology to collective housing. The project takes part of this transformation by redefining a corner plot, resulting from the addition of two former houses, into a new public housing building.
