POLICE STATION in Seville, Spain by Paredes Pedrosa Arquitectos

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

Article source: Paredes Pedrosa Arquitectos

The new police station in Seville is a detached construction that leans on the southeast edge of the site and opens up towards a circular street. The building is shaped as an irregular four-pointed star, which determines the image of the building, inspired in a panoptical model. A landscaped strip then surrounds the construction. This natural belt is extended up to the exterior fence and it naturally embraces the wings of the building. This way, the proposed volume achieves an extensive facade length with a maximum number of rooms opening towards the outdoor spaces in between the wings.

University Hospital Cafeteria in Seville, Spain by Sol89

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

Article source: Sol89

Breaking, folding and inserting. The Hospital is a cluster of activity and subjected to continuous flow changes. The intervention takes the estrangement as a starting point: we decided to insert a single continuous element, bent and broken, which defines, as opposed to the perimeter of empty space available, the area of medical staff and a series of courtyards perched to become new objects for contemplation.
