X House in Barcelona, Spain by Cadaval & Solà-Morales

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Article source: Cadaval & Solà-Morales

The Power of Form

The X House project aims to solve by the definition of a system, language, or even through a unique form, a number of inquiries that rise up when we read the specific given site: how to protect and give protagonism to an impressive pine, that is located on the top of the site, and that makes access and approximation to the house extremely complex from the street; how to avoid deciding between the views to the sea and those to the mountains, and allow both visions in opposite directions; how to neutralize through form the presence of the contiguous constructions, to build up a fake isolation that denies the neighbours; how to double the main views, permitting quality frontal views from the front and the rear of the house; how to resolve so many a priories with a simple movement that answers to all of the previous aims without prioritizing nor explicitly formulating a response to any of them. The form, a unique form, is the result of a long process of search of individual answers to each of those challenges; thus, the form is not an a priori, but an effort to give a unitary response that satisfies each of the questions rose up in the design process.

Article source: SUSANNA COTS INTERIOR DESIGN 

Talk of simplicity when we have to refer to mind is one of the most difficult challenges faced by humanity. The mind and feelings are part of this design, as well as the profession that develops within its walls. The design concept of this office works on the feeling of embrace, protection and wrapping.

Tyche Apartment in Barcelona, Spain by CaSA + Margherita Serboli

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Article source: CaSA + Margherita Serboli

The property occupies an art nouveau building of the Eixample district of Barcelona and was fully renovated by CaSA and Margherita Serboli to become the holiday apartment for an Italian family. The original layout wasted considerable space and was poorly orientated. Its longitudinal distribution, forced by the transversal bearing walls, resulted in many densely separated small spaces, spared along a long corridor that isolated the two ends of the apartment.

Article source: Pepe Gascón & Víctor Sala Bori

The main idea of this bar concept is that the customer can enjoy a gastronomic experience where drinking, eating and sharing are interlaced: a place where you really do not share a single table, but share most tables and bars, fostering socialization related to food and drink.

Torre del Baró refurbishment in Barcelona, Spain by Jordi Farrando architect

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Article source: Jordi Farrando architect 

A castle which is not a castle.

The Torre del Baró was built around 1904. It is located in one of the crest lines of the Collserola hills and, despite its residential origin, seems to be a fortification of historicist style. It is visible from much of the northeastern sector of Barcelona and has views over the city and the interior valleys of the metropolitan area.
