LAS ARENAS in Barcelona, Spain by Alonso Balaguer and Associated Architects

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Article source:  Alonso Balaguer and Associated Architects

In spite of the fact that the former bullring, in disuse since 1989 and with a neo-mudéjar style, didn’t actually have high architectural value, it was clear that, being poised in such an impressive location for more than a century, this site was really in the minds of every citizen, and its symbolic value lead to a suitable preservation. That’s why the architectural answer, already from the first outlines, was orientated towards its maintenance as a second skin of the new building. Nevertheless, such preservation met great technical complexity: first, an evident physical deterioration; second, a strange height, four meters above the nearby streets. The technical effort was worth it, in the end to present a strong, atypical cylindrical form.

HOTEL OHLA ***** in Via Laietana nº49, Barcelona, Spain by Alonso y Balaguer

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Article source: Alonso y Balaguer

The building of Heribert Salas’ (1926 – 2011) house in Via Laietana 49, Barcelona in 1926 could never be considered a finished project and the clash of what was then considered a modern building within the weave of Ciutat Vella left wounds that have taken over 80
years to heal.

VERTICAL PATIO HOUSE in Barcelona, Spain by ESTUDI NAO SCP

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Article source: ESTUDI NAO SCP

Usually in Catalonia, the plots in the old villages for detached housing are approximately 5 meters wide, adapted to the typical structural system: two parallel load-bearing walls that support regular beams to build a slab.  Sometimes, as it happens in our case, the resultant plot is really outstretched making really difficult the access of light and ventilation in all the rooms of the house.

CASA TOMÁS in Barcelona, Spain by LAB, Laboratory for Architecture in Barcelona

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

Article source: LAB, Laboratory for Architecture in Barcelona

Louis Kahn divided spaces into two types: served and servant (where ‘servant’ refers not to domestic staff but to spaces serving other spaces). Marcel Breuer structured a considerable number of his single-family homes into a bi-nuclear scheme. The pre-existing H-shape of the Tomás home already favoured its spatial organization into two living areas, as in Breuer’s plan: one part to be used for daytime activities – the social area – and the other for night-time functions – the private area. The connecting room was to be a servant space but also given its own character so that, rather than being relegated for use as a mere passageway, it could also function as a living area. The other two rooms would be served spaces.

HOUSE 1101 in Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona by H ARQUITECTES

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

Article source: H ARQUITECTES

Not so many jobs begin like this one, with an owners’ list of wishes and hopes for their new home. A list much closer to the principles and values architects usually work with, often secretly, than the ordinary expectations of those couples facing this unknown challenge. Lists always full of good intentions but often incomplete. This was the start, loaded with responsibility, yet an excellent start.

Subacute Hospital of Mollet in Barcelona, Spain by Mario Corea Arquitectura

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

Article source: Mario Corea Arquitectura 

The recently inaugurated Subacute Hospital in Mollet del Vallès is an example of how a hospital constructed in the 1950s and 60s, which had fallen into disuse, can be successfully recycled to meet the current and future challenges emerging in healthcare. The renovation project was based on simple and effective interventions that were practical as well as functional, resulting in a low-cost, energy-efficient hospital that re-assumes an active role in the day-to-day life of the city.

Residential building in Barcelona, Spain by MATEO ARQUITECTURA

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Article source: MATEO ARQUITECTURA

The neighbours protected themselves from the exterior with thick walls and balconies. We have to work with lightweight elements, so we designed the façade as a succession of layers: one interior, of glass and stainless steel, and another exterior, close to it, of wood that opens and closes at will. It protects us from noise and inquisitive eyes, acts as a filter between inside and outside, and gives the building an urban image.

To accommodate domestic life in the dense central city, architecture has to veil and control pure transparency.

CT House in Barcelona, Spain by MYCC Office Architecture

There is something in every project that comes from visiting the site and listening to clients. And there is also an interesting part at the beginning of every project that comes from the everyday training.

While the first is a very attractive translation job, the second has to do with the positive part of experience.
