San Sebastian is a lively city. It is the city of fusions. Its landscape is at the same time stony and marine, and its light is the white light of the haze and the bright light of Southern Europe. The Comb of the Winds by Chillida and the beautiful classical composure of the city express equally ambivalence.

The refurbished flat is situated in Sarria-Sant Gervasi. As a starting point few important decisions were taken. On one hand to rethink the out-dated overall organization, unifying the entrance and the living room, as well as the office and the kitchen. This helped a general spatial integration, generating bigger spaces that flow easily into each other, and reduced the number of doors and partitions. On the other hand to revamp all the electrical, plumbing, cooling and heating systems to updated technologies. Refurbishing completely kitchens and bathrooms.

The building responds to the social demand of the city of Torrelavega of an independent space to accommodate adult school Caligrama, which until now lacked its own headquarters. Located in a deteriorated urban area, the new centre intends to be a connection with the rest of the city, serving as an integration element. A new iconic building that embodies a claim of the city is created as a reference for the future of the region.

A castle which is not a castle.
The Torre del Baró was built around 1904. It is located in one of the crest lines of the Collserola hills and, despite its residential origin, seems to be a fortification of historicist style. It is visible from much of the northeastern sector of Barcelona and has views over the city and the interior valleys of the metropolitan area.

A-cero presents one of his last works in single family house. It is a residence of 1250 sqm built on a plot of 1,700 sqm.
Access from the street is produced by an entrance for vehicles and people but with separate application. All the limit of the plot is enclosed with a fence designed by A-cero made in the stone itself housing and black galvanized steel. The plot has a manicured garden noted for its practicality and consistency with the architecture of the house. The facade is made of limestone and black glass. In this case, Joaquín Torres and Rafael Llamazares project a more orthogonal design following the clients preferences, although the essence of the A-cero style. Are remarkable volumes in stone overhangs and large glass panels in black.

‘’It is not a project of some parents for their children, but a work of our society for the future’’
The current centre, granted by Madrid City Hall, is housed in a building from 1950 attached to a development of mainly single storey houses. It is located beside the disused military barracks near the Extremadura highway. Renovated in 1995, it shows inadequate conditions as a school and residence for children who suffer CP. Due to the increasing demand for places and the fact that it was the only specialized residence in La Comunidad de Madrid, an extension with the very best conditions was necessary and addressed the following shortcomings:
– Insufficient space; up to four children per room.
– Inadequate connection between buildings; with access from outdoors, exposing the children to significant temperature changes.
– The fact that there was only one multipurpose hall which did not meet requirements to carry out all the activities.
– Insufficient evacuation routes and emergency systems; when the lift was out of order, the rooms were inaccessible.
