Casa Baladrar in Benissa, Alicante by Langarita-Navarro Arquitectos

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Article source: Langarita-Navarro Arquitectos

The scattered and trans-European city that the mountainous coast of Alicante has become, houses a heterogeneous population that is drawn to the sun, the sea, the temperate climate, the convenient public services and the leafy greenery. The promise of relaxing and hedonistic experiences captivates both seasonal tourists and long-term residents who see their expectations fulfilled amongst jasmine and bougainvilleas. The project draws from this context and is designed to meet the demands of multiple families in the summertime and as a haven for retirees the rest of the year.

Vivienda Teresa in Elche, Alicante by Rocamora Arquitectura

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Article source: Rocamora  Arquitectura

The owners’ urban calling is behind site’s location. A quiet street in Elche’s San Jose area with almost no traffic.

The plot dimensions are 7m x 10.5m, in a street that measures 4m wide.

A tripartite collaboration: Maite (owner), Angel and Javier (project authors, one is also an owner). The first decision is to build “the sideways look”: the facade is drilled with the minimum space, necessary to meet the building legislation.

We like the virtue of architecture which makes possible constructing a house on air, walking on water…

An abrupt plot of land overlooking the sea, where what is best is to do nothing. It invites to stay.

A piece that respects the land’s natural contour is set in it.

The project responds to the surrounding landscape defined by two different topographies: one horizontal plane oriolana garden, where it supports the building, and on the other the ubiquitous mountain in the north facing the delimitation. The volume of the building reflects this duality fragmenting the different volumes that comprise this mechanism to recognize the profile of the mountains to the opening. The building consists of two classrooms of children, four primary classrooms, a gym and a dining room for one hundred students in two shifts, plus all associated teaching spaces.

The entrance to the site is in the lower and smaller side of the triangle having the other two facing the Golf Course and therefore the views

House on Cliffside in Alicante, Spain by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

Article source: Fran Silvestre Arquitectos

We like the virtue of architecture which makes possible constructing a house on air, walking on water…

An abrupt plot of land overlooking the sea, where what is best is to do nothing. It invites to stay. A piece that respects the land’s natural contour is set in it. Above, a shadow, the house itself, looking calmly at the Mediterranean. Under the sun, the swimming-pool brings us closer to the sea, it becomes a quiet cove.

Kiss Bridge in Alicante, Spain by Joaquin Alvado Bañon

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Article source: Joaquin Alvado Baño

The project has been thought to establish a relationship between two different parts of the town, divided by a rainwater channel. Each side of the channel causes a different way to cross, a new shape to define a border. The connection is a kiss, a softy touch of structures. The bridge is a new way to understand the city.

The beams have been structurally designed as the Japanese art of paper folding called “origami”. The material we have used is white concrete plate instead of paper. The two geometrically different parts have different structural behavior. The first part has a large cantilever beam 16 m length, while the second has a Y plan geometry comprising the main path itself and a Venetian stairs. The length of the main path of both structures is over 60 m.

Variation Guggenheim 3 in Alicante, Spain by Joaquín Alvado Bañón

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Article source: Joaquín Alvado Bañón

After the collapsed of one of the six-headed palm tree in the center of town in Daya Vieja, Spain, we have designed “El Mirador de la Palmera” with the excuse of a structural support for the tree.

We wanted to connect the town center with the orchards in the surroundings to show the visitors the change of landscape atmospheres along the different seasons. We have created a lookout tower with a spiraling promenade that culminates in a spectacular narrow overpass that juts out and over a major town thoroughfare. El Mirador de la Palmera offers stunning views of the Vega Baja, Rojales and La Marina.
