Vars House in Madrid, Spain by Aceboxalonso

Friday, August 10th, 2012

Article source: Aceboxalonso

It is located on a hill, dominating the sights – Madrid is 12 km. far (or close) but the nearest context is understood as “natural”. It was a big house, and we wanted to make as small effect on the landscape as we could, but at the same time the landscape had to add a strong effect on the interior. No colors, no synthetic or “artificial” materials; as low as possible; the “profile” of the house had to talk the language  of the place as one more of the lines in the horizon.

Ants’ House in Madrid, Spain by Espegel-fisac Arquitectos

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Article source: Espegel-fisac Arquitectos

The Ants’ House is formally conceived considering the surrounding environment and its location on a large plot in the Manzanares Park, immersed in the mountains near Madrid.

The house is meant to dominate the vast natural world which lies beyond its entrance. Its shape is designed by nature. Just like an outstretched hand, the house works its way through the almond trees reaching out from in between the branches, reaching towards different spaces and lights effects.

The ambitious plan by Madrid’s mayor Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón to submerge a section of the M30 ring motorway immediately adjacent to the old city centre within a tunnel was realised within a single term of office. The city undertook infrastructure measures over a total length of 43 kilometres, six of them along the banks of the River Manzanares, at a total cost of six billion Euro. West 8 together with a group of renowned architects from Madrid, united under the name MRIO arquitectos led by Ginés Garrido Colomero designed the master plan for Madrid RIO.

Fuencarral-Ei Pardo Police Station in Madrid, Spain by Voluar Arquitectura

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Article source: Voluar Arquitectura

The general design of the project answers mainly to the adequacy of its to the environment. The building is set back from the property line leaving a free space that works as a public urban development and allowing the pedestrian access. This gives continuity to the city in order to promote the rapprochement of the citizen to a public building, by tradition, used to be considered as closed and hermetic place.

SILEX – EMVS Foro Habitat Sostenible Competition in Madrid, Spain by Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Article source: Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos

Due to the situation and the characteristics of the plot, and taking advantage of the free ground floor to generate the access for the center instead of for an end, the project appears as a threshold of access to the Colonies of “Nuestra Señora de los Angeles”, a step between the urban environment and the green space that proposes the plan.

Social Services Center in Madrid, Spain by dosmasunoarquitectos

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

Article source: dosmasunoarquitectos

The programme of the new local Social Services Center in Móstoles is strongly conditioned by two facts: on the one hand, it hosts many identical spaces –single, unipersonal offices- and it is placed within a new, aseptic urban fabric –currently being developed- which features no constraints but the street network and the plot orientation. On the other hand, the building’s relationship with its close and distant surroundings is based upon environmental respect, achieved –in this case- by means of traditional procedures, instead of throughout advanced technological systems.

Casa Syntes in Pinto, Spain by dosmasunoarquitectos

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

Article source: dosmasunoarquitectos

A garden house. A house between courtyards.

The project had to face two preliminary constraints: a surrounding area burdened by the aesthetic and cultural tradition of the Spanish row-house concept and, on the other hand, the plot’s exposure to solar radiation during the hottest months of the year.

67 Dwellings in Colmenar Viejo, Madrid, Spain by dosmasunoarquitectos

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Article source: dosmasunoarquitectos

Flying across the Madrilenian mountains, we chose a hill to land on. Its slope enabled us to establish a visual relationship with the surroundings, gazing Colmenar Viejo, the mountains and Madrid’s metropolitan area in the horizon.

The local topographic and geologic conditions are preserved and used as the main leit-motivs of the intervention. Its rocky, naturally-pitched substratum suggested hovering on top of it instead of altering its original features.

The city is a focal point of relations in the territory, but within it are pockets of extreme privacy with maximum expression in the family home. We propose a privacy transition between the city public and more private garden where they have room for another series of spaces.
