“Home in the Orchard” in Valencia, Spain by Ramon Esteve

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

Article source: Ramon Esteve

This Home in the Orchard is located in the village of Alboraya, in the border area between the urban grid and a great extension of a vegetable and tiger nut garden. It is a house between medians located on the corner of a residential block and therefore enjoys the convenience of urban housing and at the same time, it has its broad views over the orchard that fades into the horizon.

ZAMNESS | Office Space in Barcelona, Spain by nookarchitects

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Article source: nookarchitects

We had been trying for one, very long year to change our place of work and after visiting several apartments and establishments, we suddenly came across the opportunity of developing a project for a shared office with a closely known client.  On this occasion time was our main challenge- we had to finish an interior design project, obtain estimated costs, manage the construction works and move in just 3 months.  This is an extremely limited timescale for the city of Barcelona.

A Coruña for rent? in Spain by Egue y Seta

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Article source: Egue y Seta

Looking for a flat to rent? Read between the lines:

Spacious and bright = empty and painted in white.
Great potential = really needs to be renovated!
Charming = Old, really old!
Functional or cosy = small.
For couples: small
Singles: really small.
Ideal for students: barely habitable
Diaphanous Loft: You´ll sleep in the kitchen
Arrange a visit: Not even in photographs it looks ok
Parquet Flooring : The rest of the finishes is not worth commenting.

The Real state market for rental housing is highly competitive, full of vices and most of its advertisement pieces sound like siren calls. None of these, nevertheless, lack explanation: Property owners are bound to invest with caution, they need to hit the target of the particular taste of a potential but undetermined client, but most importantly they seem to be obliged to prescribe furniture and finishes tested against the most indolent of lifestyles.

VALDEMAQUEDA TOWN HALL in MADRID, Spain by PAREDES PEDROSA ARQUITECTOS

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Article source: PAREDES PEDROSA ARQUITECTOS  

The village is small and the building is of a small scale, with a correspondingly small budget and program that included formal configuration of this square, a transcendental feature of rural Spanish life that the village lacked.

Elite Equestrian Center in Navarra, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

Article source: Francisco Mangado

The plot is in the middle of one of the most humid valleys of northern Navarre. A valley of gentle but sturdy hills, where the green pasture and oak trees configure a landscape of strong character, whose color changes with the seasons. A valley dotted with a system of small and relatively closely-woven urban cores, configured in an apparently random way. The buildings are formed of large unitary and isolated volumes that seem to touch, but that in truth compete with one another to show their bold architectural character. A boldness that draws on the climate conditions, but also on the production system – stockbreeding –, which in past times forced to accommodate in one same house people and animals. A boldness that is particularly evident in the roof, whose role is to bring together all the different contents. Boldness, in the end, of ‘Navarre’s buildings’. This is the context for an elite equestrian center specialized in dressage and with boarding stalls for horses: one of the strongest and most sophisticated forces created by nature.

177 Social Dwellings in Valdebebas, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

Article source: Francisco Mangado

The project tries to reconcile the privacy of the dwellings with attention to goings-on outside the block, so in the floor plan, the units are arranged in such a way that on the south side, towards the area that will accommodate offices and the ‘City of Justice’, a public zone will offer cafés, restaurants, stores, etc.; a recreational hub that will also be representative and vital in terms of exchange of functions, and therefore urban and with economic potential.

Ekklesia in Valencia, Spain by Pink Intruder

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Article source: Pink Intruder

It is an installation made with cardboard tubes with a metallic appearance atop a mosaic made of 96,000 wooden pieces.

During the Fallas festival in Valencia held every year the ultimate goal of these installations is to be burned to celebrate the arrival of spring.  In this context we built a structure entirely of cardboard and wood joints. The purpose was to investigate to what extent we could carry up this type of structure, and also to place in a traditional context a contemporary image to provoke the debate between tradition and modernity.
