CAEaCLAVELES in Asturias, Spain by Longo + Roldán Arquitectos

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

Article source: Longo + Roldán Arquitectos

The peculiar topography of the site, its orientation and mountain views of Cuera are the starting points in the design of an artist´s residence/studio + countryside bed&breakfast in the Asturian population La Pereda, in the village of Llanes, Spain. The project takes advantage of a loophole in the law -which requires regional build-pitched roofs of curved ceramic tile- to propose a building that looks forward the integration into the natural beauty of the area more than in the built environment that surrounds it. To reach a level that will optimize the views of the mountains and the forest surrounding the plot, the action takes place in the northern part of the site. The existing hill there is removed to play with a single green roof that shelters the different uses, thereby diluting the boundaries between the natural and the built in a game between the tectonic and estereotomic that refers to the land-art interventions. A curved stone wall leads from the main road and back into the building and gains altitude to become the load bearing wall that supports the concrete deck, while separates the residence/studio area, for the artist private use, from the small b&b open to the public. This central wall, massive and forceful to ensure the privacy of both functions, contrast to the facades oriented to the north and south in the housing area and to the east in the b&b, much lighter and visually permeable, to enhance the views. The cover in continuity with the ground not only integrates the building into the environment and minimizes the height above the ground naturally, but also alows to maximize energy savings.

VITORIA-GASTEIZ CITY COUNCIL OFFICES in Bilbao, Spain by IDOM

Saturday, April 9th, 2016

Article source: IDOM 

One of the matters that most damages the perception that the citizens have of the local administration is the penitential itinerary, which forces them to go from one office to another in order for them to fulfil their obligations with the different municipal departments. This is exactly what the Vitoria-Gasteiz Council wanted to do away with by concentrating all the services that deal with citizens’ affair in one single building.

Thursday, April 7th, 2016

Article source: Carquero Arquitectura

This plot which faces north has a narrow front in comparison to the rear of the site, therefore the brief has placed the main priority on seeking natural light. It is located within the urban fabric of this18th century village. The blocks follow a 100×200 ft grid and are characterized by adapting to the abrupt topography and by the equitable internal distribution of the homes.

“J” House in Cádiz, Spain by Carquero Arquitectura

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016

Article source: Carquero Arquitectura

The locality of Algodonales is in a landscape enclave favoured in the skirt of the Líjar Mountain, in the province of Cadiz, being opened visually in fullness towards the Pinar Range. Its historical town-center obeys an organic tracing imposed by the abrupt topography of the area, typical of the medieval Arabic urbanism of the zone, where the system of streets, free spaces and organization hospitalizes of the framework they are interlacing almost at random in conformity with the slopes of the mountain.

In this context, in the perimeter of the historical core, it begins to develop in the last decades an expansion of the same town, adapting the studding to a more rational framework where it begins to emerging a more identical architecture to the current importance in agreement with the popular architecture that shapes the urban center.

BiblioTec exhibition in Barcelona, Spain by mamen domingo ¡! ernest ferré arquitectes

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016

Article source: mamen domingo ¡! ernest ferré arquitectes

The exhibition tells the public the history of one hundred years of the School of Library Science in Catalonia since the founding moment with Prat de la Riba and the conception of Eugeni d’Ors, his defining moment in the Commonwealth of Catalonia, their stages of continuity in both military dictatorships, to its positioning in the educational landscape of democracy. Nonetheless, its main idea is to convey the ability to renew of this profession and therefore their educational environment within the context of the University of Barcelona, being today a dynamic and future focused profession, linked to the many changes that occur around books and records management.

DES-QUADRADA HOUSE in Cádiz, Spain by Carquero Arquitectura

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016

Article source: Carquero Arquitectura

On this project, the shape of the plot itself gives form to the spaces, the volumes and the composition of the building.

The internal spaces go changing throughout the day, depending upon where the light reflects on the white surfaces.

By setting back the façade, an open space is created in front of the house containing the solarium and swimming pool, with a roofed terrace and a continuous glass wall highlighting the entrance and connecting the inside and outside of the home.

Consolidation of the Tower of Matrera Castle in Cádiz, Spain by Carquero Arquitectura

Sunday, April 3rd, 2016

Article source: Carquero Arquitectura

After the partial collapse that this medieval tower suffered, being a historical landmark for its strategic position in the latest “Nazari” border through the Valley of Guadalete, where it´s cut with Bética range, we project the consolidation of this landscape icon that lost part of its imposing volume, leaving at risk the stability of the rest popup, removing with it not only part from the architectural element, but also the landscape reference of a landmark very linked with the iconography and culture of the region.Being cultural modals and emblems of our own cities and territories, the crisis has done that they succumb in the abandon for the own economic disinterest that carries his maintenance.
