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.

Rota House in Travesía de Conde Duque, Madrid, Spain by Manuel Ocaña

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Article source: Manuel Ocaña 

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.

MUSEO ARQUEOLÓGICO NACIONAL in Madrid, Spain by Frade Arquitectos

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

Article source: Frade Arquitectos 

Two months ago, on March 31st, the opening ceremony of the new Museo Arqueológico Nacional took place. There is no doubt that it was an event that had been long waited for. A clear example of this, is the large amount of visitors that it has attracted during the first couple of weeks. A figure over 5000 visitors per day. Even though the museum has only been closed down for two and a half years out of the six that the construction lasted, it was clear to see that the re-opening generated a lot of expectation.

Bikini 32 residence and office, Madrid in Spain by hollegha arquitectos

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Article source: hollegha arquitectos 

To make a building of 4.75m width and 13m length not look narrow might be impossible. Nevertheless, interiors were supposed to be spacious and generous. Time to rethink traditional systems! So we developed a façade concept that occupies only 18cm and offers perfect insulation for both cold and heat. Columns are visible in the interior.

The relation between in and out is very much perceptible in the whole building. Due to its proportions, you may see the sun rise and set without leaving the room.

Single family house in Madrid, Spain by hollegha arquitectos

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Article source: hollegha arquitectos

Being used to the spacial restrictions typical for a city with high density like Madrid, a 1 800m2 (19 370 sqft) plot almost makes you feel lost when you first enter it. We found it extremely important to create a home that integrates the outdoor space and makes it liveable. The climate is very dry and hot in summer, on the other hand you can use terraces all over the year if they are a little protected against sun, wind and rain.

House of wood in Chamartin, Madrid, Spain by Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Article source: Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos

The decision to build a new house in a 1950’s neighbourhood of single family dwellings had to confront the by-laws which not only prohibited the demolition of a previously existing building lacking any architectural value, but also explicitly protected the original construction materials as well as its volume, covered by a hipped roof. Our proposal produces an in-depth transformation of the building on the basis of just two architectural operations: a new wood envelope around the existing volume of the old house, and a central spine that runs through the full height of the interior spaces.
