111 HOMES in Larrein Salburua, Spain by Roberto Ercilla Architecture

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Article source: Roberto Ercilla Architecture

A U-shaped volumetry is planned for the initial layout.

Three excavations are to be done on corners. As they will break down the initial volume, they will allow more sunlight and comfort for the patio.

The south-facing garden area presides as the community centre.

Spanish Pavilion for Expo 2008 in Zaragoza, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Francisco Mangado

The desire to reproduce the space of a forest, or of a group of bamboos on a layer of water, has formed the subconscious basis of the project. On the one hand there is the creation of a… building mechanism? able to generate extraordinary possibilities from the point of view of energy logic and environmental awareness, an essential and symbolic aspect for the future Spanish Pavilion at the International Exposition of Zaragoza. But on the other hand, and this is very important, one of the most attractive spaces one may encounter, both in terms of matter and light, is transferred to the field of architecture. Changing spaces, full of hints and nuances, in which concepts such as verticality and depth play an essential role.

219 Social Housing in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

Article source: Francisco Mangado

The proposal aims at rationalizing as much as possible the urban occupation as well as the resulting schemes. This project elevates the principle of efficiency to architectural category, a principle that is considered essential when it comes to dealing with subsidized and social housing projects, because it affects not only those decisions regarding layout or typology, but also the architectural projection and design.

MUNICIPAL AUDITORIUM in Teulada, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

Article source: Francisco Mangado

Teulada-Moraira is an unusual urban center. Although it is divided into two separate physical units, Teulada and Moraira, these belong to a single administrative entity. Located in Alicante, in a valley that descends from the mountains to the sea, the city takes full advantage of the two realities, earth and sea, which define its environment and serve as visual references.

To provide the small rural sites of the area with sports facilities, the Provincial Government ofLa Coruñalaunched a series of architecture competitions, by which swimming pools and gymnasiums have been built in consecutive phases starting from a series of prototypes that each City Council could choose. Thought out as a generic solution for an area with no distinct features, the prototype selected by the municipalities of Oleiros, Melide, Fene and Pobra do Caramiñal indirectly points at the rain as the common aspect of the Galician landscape. A convex roof shaped as a large gutter is thereby proposed as the identifying feature of the project which, on the other hand, is marked by its compactness and capacity to adjust to different urban characteristics.

Cuña house in Lorquí, Spain by AQSO arquitectos office

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Article source: AQSO arquitectos office

This house occupies a narrow plot located in a new residential area. The slender shape and the sloping roof stand out in the landscape as a wedge ascending against the slight slope of the land.

The residence is located in Lorquí, a small town in Southern Spain surrounded by a landscape shaped by eroded hills known as ‘Montes Blancos’. The ascending shape of the house outlines a triangular elevation standing over the terrain, capturing views towards the Segura River´s meadow.

New Technologies Training Center in Santiago de Compostela, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Article source: Francisco Mangado

The proposal for the Center for New Technologies of Santiago de Compostela is based on two essential ideas. The first one springs from the conception of the place and its process of topographic adaptation, and the second entails a sense of efficiency. Efficiency having to do in this case both with the speed in which the project must be executed and with the fact, strictly functional, that the resulting building may need to undergo variations in program over the years.

Usually in Catalonia, the plots in the old villages for detached housing are approximately 5 meters wide, adapted to the typical structural system: two parallel load-bearing walls that support regular beams to build a slab.  Sometimes, as it happens in our case, the resultant plot is really outstretched making really difficult the access of light and ventilation in all the rooms of the house.

Article source: Vila Segui arquitectos

The refurbishment of the apartment was driven by the need for a gut renovation due to the poor state of the existing condition, which had been abandoned for several years. The renovation had explicit economic restrictions.

We understand that the city is not the sum of individual buildings , but it is the practice of the people that run that, enrich and keep evolving, people mobilized by the architecture in terms of its use and location. Whether for obvious economic and functional reasons, finally opting for the complete demolition of the existing building (apart from the historical value of it, it was only linked to emotional and age old aspects, and not like others of architectural quality and condition ), taking into account the strong link with the history of the municipality of the existing building, and the sensitivity of many people who grew up with the urban image of this, the first city Council of Benidorm.
