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

Mont-Àgora in Barcelona, Spain by Pere Puig arquitecte, SLP

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: Pere Puig arquitecte, SLP

Santa Margarida de Montbui was a small municipality that the great immigration wave of the nineteen fifties and sixties turned into a dormitory town on the industrial outskirts of Barcelona.

In recent decades it has gradually acquired the basic services that it severely lacked: urbanisation of streets, health care facilities, schools, etc. Still missing though is a cultural centre capable of housing a library, conference room, auditorium and classrooms. In some way, this building represents the end of a trajectory from slum to city.

A Scaffolding System for a Temporary Facility in Barcelona, Spain by peris+toral.arquitectes

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

Article source: peris+toral.arquitectes

In response to both the temporality of the facility and the context where is located, Peris+Toral stands up for a detachable and reusable construction that minimizes the trace on the territory: a scaffolding system as structure and formal solution of the project.

This temporary facility built a year ago by the Catalan practice Peris+Toral, is part of the provisional urbanization of the Glòries Square in Barcelona. With this project, the studio reasserts a new way of working and enhances its search for new solutions and constructive processes.

House Of Mirrors in Barcelona, Spain by nook architects

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Article source: nook architects 

The projects we have done so far have had very centric locations within the city of Barcelona:  Ciutat Vella, Eixample, Gràcia, Poble Nou… This time, however, it was at the centre of it all. Located in Plaça Catalunya, the first thing we did was to look out from the generous balcony doors to the urban sights outside, from a very privileged location on one of the building’s top floors. It was then that we knew that the day zones were to be located towards these valuable openings to the city’s frenetic rhythm.

La Olivia in Barcelona, Spain by RÄS studio

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

Article source: RÄS studio 

We are an architecture studio from Barcelona that grew among the floods –and the delusions– from another generation. We closely walk with our projects, questioning assumed models and redrawing possible relationships between the architect, the space and who inhabits it. The result is a thoughtful and efficient architecture, sensitive but bold, and as affordable as shocking. Here we present three of our projects.

TERESIANAS in Barcelona, Spain by Picharchitects

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

Article source: Picharchitects

It is the extension of the Teresianas School of the c/ Ganduxer.

Because of its heritage value, the passage of time and the various education reforms, the school has been left without enough classroom space and recreational covered areas.

The new extension re-locates all grades and provides the school with new covered sports space with the necessary infrastructure to provide a service to the school and extracurricular activities.
