The road is made by walking…, as Antonio Machado said some decades ago. In this way, the Caro Hotel has been forging its own path for some time now, first with the completion of Alma del Temple Restaurant, recently connected to the hotel, and now the hotel itself. The building, a recognized Hotel Monument, is like a palimpsest on which each of its numerous residents have left their mark, the latest being our studio. Integrated elements and cultures that have been revealed slowly over time… featuring the noteworthy 12th-century Almohad wall standing 15 meters high, which runs lengthwise down the center of the building.

When dealing with the refurbishment of this old carpenter’s workshop placed at Barcelona’s Poble Sec neighbourhood, the main goal was to set up this space for inhabitation while the main constructive components were mantained. They gave charm and singularity to the space.

The work was about projecting a familiar dwelling of a conventional programming, destined to a couple with two children, in a typical residential area of the Madrid mountain range, an environment without qualification.
In this sense we decided to give a recognizable piece to this disorganized, or better said heterogeneous, area of suburbia without any architectural interest.
As Moreno Galván wrote: “Buildings are created with a particular purpose. But architecture is made from a situation, an understanding of things, an image of the world.”

The urban context of the new Museum, surrounded by high rise housing and a ring road, determined its compact character. The building is placed as a single bulk at one of the edges of the lot available, leaving the space remaining as facility for the city. The entrance is located at the end of this plaza, slightly elevated above the level of the nearby roads, becoming a public space for the city as well as an outdoor lobby for the museum. The existing palm garden aside was kept and extended in order to include it within the exhibition space. The Museum is meant to host an outstanding archaeological collection from sites in the Almeria area, formerly located in dispersed places.

Design for 2017.
Our proposal doesn’t start from architecture.
Our proposal doesn’t start with the design of an ephemeral pavilion.
Our proposal is not even a structure that can be reused.

The commission began in a private competition, in which our office was selected not by a particular project, but by the attitude showed to the clients to build a maximum house with a very small budget in a plot with a very sharp slope. And not least, the involvement and commitment, perhaps beyond any logical reason, to propose successive approximations to the project (up to five preliminary projects and a full executive project with its visa) before the final solution.

The brief was to transform this neglected, very badly distributed apartment into an attractive holiday home.
The property is located in an extremely central street, right between Plaza Catalunya y Plaza Universitat, on the sixth floor of an art nouveau building.
Nonetheless, this last floor was built in the ’60 and lacked of the charm of the rest of the building.

Roots are attached to tradition but trees are directions to the future.
The first full residential project of Marcel Wanders, the 850m2 residence embodies Marcels’ vision in each of its curved corners. The conversion and extension of the Mediterranean sixties villa, gave birth to a friendly meeting between old and new. The subtle mix of classical and modern references is visible through the entire villa, from the classic profiled wall lining the curved space to the newly custom designed cupboards in straight yet classic lines. A unique atmosphere emerges as space is turning into a playground for reliefs and surfaces. House of contrasts and love between past and present, Casa Son Vida is “unavoidably exuberant and unabashedly outrageous.”

A building raises all complexity from the idea above the look.
The lines, size or closeness to people that walk around.
It is impossible to notice the volume, magnitude and so seeing it like a symbol.
