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.

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.

This project forms part of the urbanization that is taking place in one of the lots left over after the construction of the Ronda de Barcelona, a bypass road, in 1992. A sports centre, a residential development and an old people’s home will all share the same space, creating a public area that will stretch from the street to a square giving access into the different facilities.

Barceló Raval Hotel in Barcelona, Spain by CMV Architects

Saturday, October 20th, 2012

Article source: CMV Architects

The Barceló Raval hotel wants to hide a big party behind a quiet icon. It is not in competition with the history of the place where it has been building neither with the existing facades. But the hotel wants to take part of that atmosphere and that story. So the stainless steel metal mesh that surrounds the hotel gives it a contemporary and mysterious air at the same time, because hide an atmosphere that blow up in the interior. The hotel goes on with the chosen recipe for the future combining leisure, business, evasion and game. The building with elliptical floor designed by CMV Architects summarizes a new proposal for the neighborhood: expressive contention for a future away from the old brothels. However, the new hotel exudes a cosmopolitan atmosphere that revives the old port district.

Catalonia’s International Centre For High Performance In Sailing in Barcelona, Spain by Mestura Arquitectes

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Article source: Mestura Arquitectes

The objective of this intervention is to include under the large pergola Photovoltaic in the Forum Park of Barcelona, a program of the International Center for High Performance Sailing.

The uniqueness of the spaces to be treated, starting considerations requires both the environment and the possible actions in outer space, as the configuration of existing architectural elements, which determine many of the decisions of the project. We therefore propose a treatment in the facades that seek not to contrast with the gigantic scale of the element. The south facade is delayed until the first bay of the current structure to avoid contact of the new facilities with existing structural elements, while on the north side openings are covered with a curtain overlapping continuous acts wooden slats as a unitary element and neutral.
