Sunday, December 22nd, 2013

Article source: Fran Silvestre Arquitectos 

A consolidated landscape surrounded by gardens with big trees within the metropolis of Madrid is the fortunate starting point of this house.

The piece, of metallic and horizontal nature, produces the effect of having just one storey. With its proportions and materiality it both contrasts and blends with the tall trees of its environment.

Memory, memories, even bad memory always twist and fly when we work on architectural past, … yes, make a story, choose the tone, cadence, rhythm, accents, a story that naturally coexist with collective memory of the old slaughterhouse of Madrid, with another early report of new application dedicated to the movies while curled up with the forgetfulness of their own recurrent obsessions…

Didomestic in Madrid, Spain by Elii

Sunday, December 22nd, 2013

Article source: Elii

The scope of the project covers from the development of a customised functional proposal for a user that is turning a new leaf to the rehabilitation of the structure, the insulation, the facilities and the modernisation of the existing construction systems.

The selected approach removes all obstacles from the floor to provide the greatest possible flexibility. Two basic elements are used: firstly, the central core, comprising the staircase, some shelves and the larder. The core is at the centre of the main space under the mansard roof. It connects the access floor and the space under the roof and allows the natural lighting coming through the roof into the living room. Secondly, there are two side strips for the functional elements (kitchen, bathroom, storage space and domestic appliances).

The Florida’s housing is one of the most representative project in our office.

At the project’s beginnings we saw that one of the most important determinant thing, it was its own situation.

The lot was really close to the A6 highway, a very important road in Madrid, so the constant  noise it was very uncomfortable in spite of the location: a quiet  place with lots of vegetation.

A newly-created industrial zone in a peripheral area with no identity, references or language; major road links which cross, divide and model the contemporary landscape; a narrow, long plot between partition walls. Only the distant views on this landscape offer any interesting prospect of a relationship with the outside.

More than just a gardening pavilion, what we have truly wanted to build is a home for gardeners. The project, perceived as a unique system of pavilions, enables the repetition and serialisation for providing unity to the image of the woodland facility, mainly dealing with the topography and the interior distribution according to the needs of every district, which are not always the same.
