Canodròm, Creative Research Park in Barcelona, Spain by Dear Design studio

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

Article source: Dear Design studio 

The new Creative Research Park of Barcelona is located in the Canòdrom, an emblematic rationalist building designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Bonet i Castellana in 1961, that used to work as a greyhound track.

After the building refurbishment in 2016, Dear Design Studio won the competition for the building’s interior design, and also proposed the corporate identity and signage design, to give the project greater coherence. The challenge was to adapt the facilities of the former greyhound stadium to its new function as a flexible and dynamic space for startups and technology companies in the creative and cultural industries. At the same time, Dear Design proposed to stimulate the neighbourhood by including technological interventions that reflect the processes developed in the building.

Refurbishment of a country house in Barcelona, Spain by ARQUITECTURA-G

Sunday, April 16th, 2017

Article source: ARQUITECTURA-G 

The land where we intervene is a flat and elongated plot of 7.000m2 in the outskirts of Santa Margarida de Montbui. The plot initially had a building for agricultural use in a state of ruin that we were asked to transform into a single-family housing. The building regulations, according to which the pre-existing construction was considered as a farmhouse despite of being just a hut with fibrocement rooftop, didn´t allow any modification in terms of volumetrics and façade openings.

Urban beach home in Barcelona, Spain by Egue y Seta

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

Article source: Egue y Seta 

Whether you like it or not, Barcelona, for many non-locals, is also, a beach. A beach bathing the shores of an open-air museum, a coast line bursting with tapas bars and the seafront of a real city with its very own customs and history. But always, even more so during the summer, a beach. A beach that attracts real estate investors who want to turn the whole into a touristic resort, but also a spot that catches the eye and stills the heart of young couples in love that, in the antipodes of the above, try to capture the very essence of the Barcelonian´s way of life in a few square meters with a view to turn them into their own summer private retreat. This was the case of Jacques and Hannes and their cozy little flat in the heart of the traditional fisherman´s neighborhood of La Barceloneta.

Sensory order in Barcelona, Spain by Susanna Cots

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Article source: Susanna Cots

In her new project, Sensory order, Susanna Cots breaks the taboos to create a space far from the conventional: a metaphor that goes from disorder to order through design, materials and a white and organic palette, the latter being the interior designer’s distinctive signature.

Minimally invasive design for a dental clinic

Interior designer Susanna Cots has been able to create an atmosphere of calm in a dental clinic by projecting a space in which the volumes, the sturdiness of solid wood and the unexpected presence of Nature in the form of vertical gardens, welcome patients to a world far from the traditional dentist.

Campus Motor in Barcelona, Spain by Pere Puig Arquitecte

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

Article source: Pere Puig Arquitecte 

The building is connected to a racetrack located in Barcelona, and is actively used as a training site for professional motor racing.  Several companies involved in the industry have set up permanent offices in this building.

A flexible design was needed for the building so that it could accommodate several companies of varying sizes.  For this reason, the building is divided between several 35 square meter subdivisions or sectors.  Each is independent from the other, and all mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) utilities were installed below each sector, allowing for an unobstructed view, optimal energy efficiency, and minimized energy consumption.

Beates in Barcelona, Spain by Nook Architects with Byn Studio

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Article source: Nook Architects 

The architectural refurbishment of this commercial ground floor space was conditioned for the needs of its new use, a design studio and concept store in what had been for the past few decades an archive and educational space.

The commercial space is located on the ground floor of a residential building built in the year 1900 in Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella, the Old Quarter.  The building’s entry and central staircase, which is ventilated through an adjacent patio, is accessed directly from a square.  This results in a U-shaped ground floor that wraps around the patio and central staircase.

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Josep Ferrando Architecture 

The architect Josep Ferrando resolves the complex urban conditions of the context and the site in which the house is located – less than 5 meters wide and with a particular topography that constrains the parcel between two streets situated at different heights – starting the conception of the project from the shaping of the volume.
