Carles Rahola State Public Library in Girona, Spain by Mario Corea, Lluís Moran, Sebastián Guerrico

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Article source: Mario Corea, Lluís Moran, Sebastián Guerrico

The new library is located on a large rectangular plot in the center of Girona. Bounded on the north by busy Avenue Emili Grahit, the site is embedded in a dense and compact neighborhood of tall residential blocks. These urban conditions – plus the fact that this is the largest library in the network of public libraries in Catalunya – contributed to the development of a design strategy based on two main considerations.

JUNCAL & RODNEY HOME in Begur, Girona, España by Pepe Gascon Arquitectura

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Article source: Pepe Gascon Arquitectura

Some houses close in on themselves when connection with their surroundings is not desirable. However, others open up to their setting when it is clear that it endows them with qualities and provides their raison d’être and hence must become an intrinsic part of the project. This is the case of the Juncal y Rodney home since it is built on a plot of land located on the Begur massif (Girona) in one of the most sublime settings of the Costa Brava. The longitudinal volume of the north-south-facing building of two storeys – the upper one with three bedrooms and the lower one with the shared spaces – is thus open to the Mediterranean and the series of mountains and coves that are glimpsed on the horizon.

TERRACED HOUSE in Casavells, Baix Empordà, ( Girona ), Spain by 05 AM arquitectura

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

Article source: 05 AM arquitectura

This terraced house is located in a long and narrow plot situated on the edge of a small village.

The house has a contrast with both open sides, to the north the old village with narrow streets of stone. And to the south the garden, the pool, the sun and the landscape.

Access is possible through the two facades at different levels, but is usually done with the car through the south facade.

The aim of this project was the conversion of the existing building into a cultural and social centre, which would provide it with institutional representation. The outset was a dark, half-buried building that lacked quality spaces, placed at the interior of a block in Girona. The vast remodelling program included a 180-seat auditorium, an exhibition room, a computer room and an administrative area, among other spaces.

Montfullà House in Montfullà, Girona, Spain by Hidalgo Hartmann

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Article source: Hidalgo Hartmann

We find ourselves on a horizontal ground, a corner plot raised on two large slopes like a vantage point from which to enjoy superb views towards the agricultural plain that stretches at his feet until reaching Salt and the city of Girona. It is thus an exceptional setting that claims for an intervention that recognizes the attributes of the site and put them in value. We placed a silent, hermetic volume that emerges from the site and adopts the original profile of the hill, like a fortress that visually dominate the landscape. The volume encloses itself from the outside and is protected from the mediocre constructions that surround it by using the broken geometry of two thick walls.

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

Article source: Concrete Architectural Associates

Hotel Castell D’emporda located in Girona, Spain offers a signature restaurant including a large terrace with great views over the surrounding landscape. Concrete designed, at the clients’ request, a roof or covering for this terrace with the possibility to create an enclosed space with full wind and rain protection. One of the design conditions was to create a covering that works in harmony with the historical and listed building. Additionally we wanted to maintain the terrace feeling while be seated under the covering.
