The project located at Robregordo´s cemetery, in Madrid´s mountain range, satisfies the need of a new adition.
The access to the cemetery, since its last intervention, does not have any cover place to wait for the arrival of neither coffin or ashes. The preexisting access consists in three main elements: the gate of entrance, the perimetral wall made of irregular granite blocks as a limit between outside and inside, and two cypresses symmetrically placed at the entrance to the cemetery.

Moving their home to the outer limits of a small town in the province of Zaragoza is the wish of a newly married couple about to retire. Embodied in their decision lies the conviction that it is possible to both undergo a radical change and still enjoy the comforts of their previous life. To explore this dual situation a project has been designed which attempts to evade its usual position as a solution at the end of a process and to take positions as starting point or state previous to the development.

“It’s when I sleep that I can see clearly”, the poet said. However, all of us want to see clearly also when we are awake. When we receive a commission to redesign an optic centre, we imagine a clear, bright, intelligent and rational space. We leave out any confusion or ambiguity, being conscious of the functions that are to be developed through the activity that we undertake.

The first thing we did was to think about the people, about the future inhabitants. The building had to have more than one hundred rental houses with one or two bedrooms for the elderly.
We thought about how the elderly would contribute to the building’s characteristics. The key was to imagine how they would live in it. We could see them taking care of plants in ceramic pots, and how all these plants would hang down from the windows and railings like a green cascade. We could also see them sitting in the sun, enjoying the views and gathering together for a chat, talking to each other across the balconies… This is how we got the idea of having large south-facing terraces looking out onto the landscape. Moreover, having the terraces staggered –in a cascade, – would allow us to give a terrace to the highest number of homes.
