La Baldufa Municipal Kindergarten in Baix Llobregat, Barcelona by ONL Arquitectura

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Article source: ONL Arquitectura

As the site is small and triangular in shape, the project design has to focus on devoting as much exterior space as possible to the playground, in a single area oriented to the south. The simplicity of the exterior building envelope, in particular the roof which has a single slope, is only broken by two skylights which provide the natural light needed inside the classrooms in a uniform way.

The town of Viladecans is situated in the county of Baix Llobregat, in Barcelona province. Originally standing on the Barcelona road, now the C-245, running parallel to the coastline and communicating the towns on the left of the Llobregat delta with those along its edge, it followed a linear development until the 1950s, with the aim of connecting the town centre with those of nearby towns along the C-245.

W Barcelona Hotel in Barcelona, Spain by Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura

Article source: Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura

The sea is always an enormous challenge for an architect. The Mediterranean Sea is the most unusual site. The infrastructure works started with the opening of the new mouth that effectively divides theBarcelonaharbour into two areas: small and big ships. The urban mission of the project is to provide an extension at the south point to the city waterfront. The project includes a public plaza opening to the sea, a marina and a landmark hotel, a wonderful icon for a cosmopolitan city.

Can Bisa House in Barcelona, Spain by Batlle i Roig Arquitectes

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Article source: Batlle i Roig Arquitectes

Can Bisa is a late-19th century mansion now owned by Vilassar de Mar Council. Situated on the Riera de Cabrils watercourse, it occupies part of a street block that used to include a factory, now demolished. Its historic and heritage value and the strategic position it occupies in the town as a whole led the Council to consider it the ideal venue for a cultural facility, completing the complex with a social housing block.

Can Font Cultural Center in Barcelona, Spain by Taller 9s Arquitectes

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Article source: Taller 9s Arquitectes

Can Font is a “Masia”, an architectural traditional catalan typology that represents the important rural heritage of the village of Les Franqueses, sited near Barcelona. Some years ago it was an isolated building, surrounded by fields of cultures, but nowadays it is placed in the middle of an urbanized area, remaining ‘corseted’ between new buildings. The new planning for the area that abolished the open space existing in front of the main facade, converted the lateral façade facing the new square, without architectonical interest, as main facade.

Sensacions Catering in Barcelona, Spain by Denys & von Arend

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Article source: Denys & von Arend

The table is set!

Whenever you try to create a brand from scratch, to corporatize, beautify or modernize a concept traditionally associated to low costs and immediacy, as it is the case with  take away food retail, there´s always the latent risk of snatching at the same time the personal aura, the crafty feeling and the accessible appeal this type of commercial establishments usually have. Therefore, the operation of transforming a former basement garage, in downtown Sabadell, into a catwalk for “Haute Cuisine Pret-a- Porter” was evidently raised from the very beginning as a major challenge that needed to harmonize all contradictions that such merger of concepts arose, while space distribution and overall branding needed to fulfill the needs of two quite distinct activities, address two different audiences, and promote, simultaneously, two ways of consuming high-class catering and low cost gourmet dinners.

60 Dwellings Appartment Block for Fira 2000 in Barcelona, Spain

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Article source: ONL Arquitectura

This project arose in answer to the requirements of the basic guidelines established in a specific modification to the local development framework. The brief was to replace the homes which had been expropriated to enlarge the Trade Fair Area (Pavilions 5 and 7). The new homes will be located facing Ciencias Street, and the objective is to create an internal space which will be protected by the new pavilions and the multifamily apartment block.

Font Del Roure Nursery And Primary School In Barcelona, Spain

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Article source: ONL Arquitectura

In this case there were several prefabricated modules already on the site, which helped determine the location of the school. In contrast to other Nurseries and Primary Schools we did in the past, we had to make this design more compact, replacing the large central patio for a regular series of patios to enlarge the visual perception of the ground floor passages, and to create a place where the two different age groups could come together.
