Perimetro is the title of the space created by the young team of architects ZOOCO. A real home in a space of 36 m2.
The project is an open space with a clear and concise geometry, which is transformed into a living space by the compression and the expansion of bands that run around the perimeter. These elements provide it with spatial tension, configurig the necessary circles to accommodate a house in its minimum expression. The scheme is very clear, “full” in the perimeter as a server space and “empty” in the center, as an habitable space. Each wall has a goal and a function by creating one central stay where life carries out. The surface of each wall show outgoing and incoming stays getting the different scenes of daily use. In a panoramic 360 ° from left to right we found: rest area, formed by a wall that connects the sleeping area and the rest area; the bathroom, with a wall of an urban environment; the kitchen and the dining area, where you will find everything you need to use; and finally, a green area with aromatic herbs that allows to disconnect from everyday life and enjoy of an exceptional area.
A family is looking for a new home able to represent their trips around the globe, their desire to live in a garden and to embody the cinematic diversity of domestic life. The result is the design of two different houses on the same plot.
Underground club atmosphere, glamor of the 30s and live music. This is Tatel, a restaurant full of rhythm, with an unique identity. Located at number 36 Paseo de la Castellana, it will become a reference in the restoration of the capital, because of its innovative staging and its menu.
The project is a full refurbishment of a duplex in Madrid’s city center that will host a family expecting its third child and whose needs will change drastically along the next years. For that reason, the house is designed as an unfinished space, which will be modified and adapted to respond to the life changes of its inhabitants.
A prism shaped structure stands on the remaining grounds of an old corrala* from the 1950s. The space is composed of two blocks that run the length of the plot, which allows all homes to have no less than two outer façades and cross-ventilation.
Between blocks there is a wide courtyard, crossed by three translucent elevated walkways that can be used to access the homes at the northern end.
The Olimpia Theatre occupies the site of the former Olimpia Hall, a triangular shaped block in the city centre. This block -of great urban presence- presides the Lavapiés square: a priority area within the Municipal Renovation Plan for the Madrid Central District with a dense urban fabric.
The house is located on a sloping plot with a landscape of distant horizon none other than Madrid’s western mountain range viewed from Camarines. At ground level it doesn’t appear to be anything special, but as we go up we feast our eyes on a panoramic view of the urban landscape of the east of Madrid. From the four towers to the left to the Madrid tower to the right. Beautiful, and curious also. Logically the more public parts of the house will be at the upper levels to frame and enjoy the stunning views.
The relationship between parents and children is in flux for the coming years: from total dependency to independency. Then, how do you organize a house and its different rooms if the relationships between family members are constantly shifting?According, the house organizes itself ambiguously between one family nucleus and two independent areas expressed to the exterior by a diagonal cut that divides the cubical mass into two sub-masses.
