MERCEDES HOUSE IN GARDEN CITY, A CORUÑA, Spain by CREUSeCARRASCOarquitectos

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

Article source: CREUSeCARRASCOarquitectos

The plot, like all those of the same alignment, has the particularity of being limited at the back by another much higher level which situates the dwellings on the base of a high floor through which the access occurs. With its front facing north, the solution of the housing is also conditioned by the two lateral setbacks that fix the plan and by the minimum width dimensions of the plot. The interior layout is organized into two areas that occupy the northern and southern extremities of the construction; between them appear the elements of communication and a patio facing the interior space through large panes of glass.

Remodelling of Riera la Salut in Barcelona, Spain by Pol Femenias Arquitectes

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Article source: Pol Femenias Arquitectes

The intervention takes place in the middle of one of the densest neighborhoods in SantFeliu de Llobregat, near Barcelona. A working-class neighborhood, grown around the old textile factories, wall to wall, with humble dwellings of the workers themselves. The demolition of one of the last factories still standing was used to build underground parking to supply the district of La Salut , leaving in the place where the factory was a large gap in the form of concrete cover for this parking.

New Headquarters of the Territorial Support Center of the Geological Institute of Catalonia in Lleida, Spain by Oikosvia Arquitectura s.c.c.l

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Article source: Oikosvia Arquitectura s.c.c.l

The facility is conceived as an abstraction of an “iron monolith”, compact and of pure shape, which represents in one of its sides a “balma” (in catalan, a type of small cave in the base of a rocky formation) which guides us to the inside.

It is formed by means of an exterior skin, the façade, formed by Weathering Steel plates perforated with little holes of different diameter. The plates reproduce a monochrome version of the geological map of the region.

Cultural Centre Casal Balaguer in Palma de Mallorca, Spain by Flores Prats Arquitectos & Duch-Pizá, Palma

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Article source: Flores Prats Arquitectos & Duch-Pizá, Palma

Casal Balaguer is a palace of the historic center of Palma, a flood over the centuries family home, starting in 1300, then in 1500 and finally in 1700, which now loses its household to be a public building, a cultural center for the entire city. To value the times contained in the building, without taking physical distance with the historical stages that have shaped its qualities, allows us to act without departing from him: if observation do not distinguish times, the action must not have distances.
