“The House in Cassà project is a detached single-family house built in a new neighborhood in Cassà de la Selva (Girona). The house is situated in a plot with a small slope facing the south which is divided in two different levels. The upper level hosts the main rooms and swimming pool whereas the lower level accommodates the garden and the parking. The main rooms are distributed along a single floor divided in two concrete blocks –“night and day areas”– , with a double-height living room and a mezzanine creating a transparent space connecting both blocks. The two blocks offer the needed degree of privacy to each space while taking into consideration the private views, the street, the forest and the solar orientation. The northern backyard provides a pedestrian access in contact with the forest. The south porch-terrace faces the swimming pool.”

The result is an open plan sunny architecture, flooded with light. An architecture that is sensitive to the history of objects and recover their memory in a new home.

This property is located in the midst of a forest of oak trees and therefore it wasn’t possible to free some of the land for landscaping. This matter conditioned the position of the house and how it linked to the exterior. Big windows like picture frames connected the interior to the exterior and viewing terraces were built on the upper floor. The staircase distributes the areas and exaggerates the different levels which characterize this plot of land.

Previously, this health facility complex consisted in a main building, and two auxiliary buildings apart from the first.
The proposal links both auxiliary pre-existing buildings maintaining its use as a workshop in the ground floor and adding rooms in the first floor. Thus, a single L-shaped geometry dialogues with the main building. Between both shapes a patio is defined as a relation space and the main outdoor space of the complex.

Torres Blancas is an emblematic building by Spanish architect Javier Sáenz deOiza (1918-2000), located in Madrid. This 91 m2 apartment is situated in one of the top floors of the building. It is a result of the subdivision of the original plans by Sáenz de Oiza, who contemplated 400m2 houses. In this space, the intervention of restructuring by architect Héctor Ruiz Velazquez seeks to recover the original organic essence of this building of great architectural quality in the interior of the apartment.

Our building is located in a plot at the entrance of the town, bordering the landscape of the mountains in the north of the province of Seville and a great visual presence from all areas due to the elevated streets that climb the hill in the southwest area. In this terrain, with a topographic ascension to the north, were gardens with plenty of plants and trees. The proposed organization meets these topographic conditions, the characteristic landscape of the surrounding mountains, the need to maintain the image of the gardens, and the best east-west orientation to the longitudinal axis of the main pool.

ENVIRONMENT AND SHAPE
The building is located in an intermediate location between and industrial and a residential area, adjoining the old prison in Palma, nowadays abandoned. The plot is trapezoidal, and the building adapts to it using the maximum surface area allowed, as it was required by the client. Its volumetric architecture is a constant dialogue with the environment, blending the architecture of ‘International Style’ and traditional rural buildings in Mallorca.

This is a building for Maritime Station in the port of Baiona, for lines of passenger ships operating in this area of Rias Baixas, located on a dam in the center of the port, between the village and sea. It is a construction that protects, that wrap, but allowing the user direct relationship with the outside without isolation of a privileged environment. The building is treated as a longitudinal street that runs through the entire building and their main entrances on the headwalls, but accessible by several points, allowing the user to move freely, at all time, and allowing a clear view of the berthing areas. The wood box, works as a large lattice and sun protection of the building, so allows a nice integration with the environment in which it is situated, setting up part of the landscape from a distance, on the approach from the sea.

With just one bow movement, a violin virtuoso is able to produce a sixty seconds continuous sound. In this lapse of time, the musical note flows constantly without sound alterations. The notes will be tied together by means of the legato which indicates that musical notes are played or sung smoothly and connected with no interruptions at all.
