  • Architects: Ctrl+Space Architectural
  • Project: MADRID Digital Arts Museum – IDEAS COMPETITION – Honorable Mention
  • Location: MADRID, Spain

Project by Polish team: Arch. Michał Sapko / Patrycja Stołtny / Brygida Zawadzka / Duong Vu Hong

The main concept bases on focusing on the principal features of digital art and transforming them into architecture. […] By using the digital screens, introducing the flexible areas – thanks to fractal structure and steel construction – as well as interactive expositions we want to show the importance of modern technology in contemporary museum design. Additionally, the work of the museum states in line with sustainable policy.
The building is divided into two parts: one solid, including the museum zones and the other – transparent, 5-storey open space, which is the extension of the nearby street. Newly created public space invites visitors to the museum and can be important according to the organization of city events, as well as a catalyst of culture in Madrid.

PLAY-TIME APARTMENTS in Madrid, Spain by Elena Orte y Guillermo Sevillano (SUMA)

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Article source: Elena Orte y Guillermo Sevillano (SUMA)

The PLAY- TIME apartments is a project of seven units for short term rental in Ciudad Lineal, Madrid. The developer chose the place because he was looking for an oasis in the city. As architects , we proposed to intensify that condition. The movement of the building gives each housing with its own terrace and the construction system provides its own garden in the perimeter. The units, two per floor , are independently assembled on a vertical core -with elevator and services- so they can be oriented freely, limited only by urban conditions and the spiral staircase that climbs around the perimeter, to which they turn their backs.

Apartment renovation in Madrid, Spain by Beriot, Bernardini Arquitectos

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: Beriot, Bernardini Arquitectos

The project plays with the idea of a landscape to distort the apartment’s small size. The request by the client for a “real” staircase to climb to the elevated bed allows for the construction of a “mountain” which also serves as delimitation between access and kitchen and as storage, entrance cupboard and workspace at its top. A small table grows out of a step, with two stools shadowing its form when they hide under it.

The kitchen’s contour is outlined precisely, framing it to define its limits and creating a new object for the landscape.

House # 1.130 in Madrid, Spain by estudio.entresitio

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: estudio.entresitio

This is a single-family house, but quite a large one, something over 5 hundred square meters, site is narrow and long and sloped towards south.

Two different schemes superimposed one on top the other; a longitudinal one, based on spatial forking, and the one underneath, based on a hand fingers like configuration. As a result, it is a fractured mass, ruled by the rhythm of the roof structure.

Medialab-Prado in Madrid, Spain by Langarita-Navarro Arquitectos

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Article source: María Langarita and Víctor Navarro

Perhaps more than anything else, it is the very strangeness of the diverging intentions found in the La Serrería Belga adaptation project for the Medialab-Prado that makes it possible for them to coexist, though not without a certain measure of irony.

The first of these caustic coexistences stems from a certain institutional schizophrenia. While the ‘Paseo del Arte’ was transformed into Madrid City Hall’s banner to attract international tourism, an architectural competition was simultaneously promoted in the same area, which would end up serving an institution that sponsored debates that were deeply critical of this model.

Mirador Building in Madrid, Spain by MVRDV

Sunday, June 29th, 2014

Article source: MVRDV

Sanchinarro is a residential suburb on the north east edge of Madrid. Surrounded by highways, with views towards the Guadarrama Mountains.

The building was developed as a reference point for the city extension and region at large, as a counterpoint against the massive uniformity of the surrounding blocks. The 22 level building acts as a frame for the distant landscape. The large lookout at 40 metres above the ground provides inhabitants and neighbours with a commu­nity garden and a space from where they can contemplate the skyline. The proposal opens domestic architecture to the new city environment and to its surrounding territories.

A well-known ‘Dame of the Theater’, single, 65 years of age, whose dream was to have a swimming pool at home, commissions us the refurbishment of a dark dwelling between party walls in the center of Madrid. The demands: satisfying her desire of having that pool, a loft with an elevator, and abundant natural light.
