Encants Barcelona in Spain by b720 Fermin Vazquez Arquitectos

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Article source: b720 Fermin Vazquez Arquitectos

PREVIOUS STATE
Els Encants is a centenarian marketplace set outdoors in an informal way. Its former location was close to the market’s new grounds both at Glories Square.

A flee-market dedicated to auctions and the sale of second hand objects, furniture, clothing and all sorts of curious and bric-à-brac. Its origin goes back to the 14th Century. It began its activity at Glories in 1929 occupying a public site of nearly 17.000 m2 in an improvised way, and developed under a temporary basis, becoming a much loved, unique space in the city. The new market is the first step of an important City project: the reform of Glories Square, Cerda’s central square at the junction of the three main avenues of his Plan.

Pool and spa area for an Hotel in Mallorca, Spain by A2arquitectos

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Article source: A2arquitectos

In 1967, a small hotel, Hotel Castell dels Hams, was established on the island of Majorca amid the Mediterranean vegetation. Over time, and through subtle improvements and extensions, it has become one of the most distinctive hotels on the eastern part of the island.

PROMENADE 1 K. Street and Square in Alicante, Spain by Joaquín Alvado Bañón

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Article source: Joaquín Alvado Bañón

The shape of the main street and the square in “Pilar de la Horadada“ were very irregular, with a lot of sharecropping walls, patched parking and twisted lines of trees. We thought about a walk besides the sea, a pedestrian path between sand, palms and coconuts.

Restoration and Adaptation of a 16th century Chapel in Guadalajara, Spain by Adam Bresnick · architects

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

Article source: Adam Bresnick · architects

The chapel rehabilitation is for a new typology –a multi-purpose space for events—ranging from a formal wedding to the mellow ambiance of a yoga retreat. The reconstruction involved resolving the complex pathologies suffered by the original structure since being abandoned in 1969.

Santa Marta de Tormes Town Hall in Salamanca, Spain by Sanchez Gil Arquitectos

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

Article source: Sanchez Gil Arquitectos

We begin with an unstructured space with multiple conditions that required specific answers, exposed party walls, immovable telephone substation, a messy urban fabric with uneven heights, streets leading to the site …

We seek a single design capable of solving all the urban problems.

CASTILLO DE LA LUZ MUSEUM in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain by Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Article source: Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos

The first governor of the Canary Islands ordered the construction of a tower at the end of the fifteenth century, and when it was extended a few years later, the space located between the tower and the new perimeter walls was filled with earth to increase the building’s strength and resistance. That purely defensive need would become the structuring argument of our architectural proposal for the Castillo de La Luz. Located in La Isleta, the isthmus at which the Castilian ships protecting the city arrived, it concealed those primitive walls originally beaten by the sea.

Barajas Social Building Block in Madrid, Spain by Miralles Tagliabue EMBT

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Article source: Miralles Tagliabue EMBT

The apartment building, located in Barajas in the group of blocks under the management of the new extension of Barajas, was generated mainly at first to catch the light, wind and outdoor life.

Based on the urban zoning for this block, the building is conceived as a game where the apartments act as blocks on top of five floor slabs creating interspersed terraces and open spaces.

FUNERAL PARLOR in Granada, Spain by Muñoz Miranda Architects

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Article source: Muñoz Miranda Architects

A lot that does not exist. A pine forest along the hillside at the top of Murtas. An existing retaining wall constructed in an Alpujarra´s vernacular way, using local rough stones. The program seeks a room to hold a wake over. A large stone lintel beam supported by a large HEB creates an access space threshold. Once inside, you think of a concave space (cavus-cave) that connects earth with sky. Two concave rooms, one public and one more private.

CASA TOMÁS in Barcelona, Spain by LAB, Laboratory for Architecture in Barcelona

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

Article source: LAB, Laboratory for Architecture in Barcelona

Louis Kahn divided spaces into two types: served and servant (where ‘servant’ refers not to domestic staff but to spaces serving other spaces). Marcel Breuer structured a considerable number of his single-family homes into a bi-nuclear scheme. The pre-existing H-shape of the Tomás home already favoured its spatial organization into two living areas, as in Breuer’s plan: one part to be used for daytime activities – the social area – and the other for night-time functions – the private area. The connecting room was to be a servant space but also given its own character so that, rather than being relegated for use as a mere passageway, it could also function as a living area. The other two rooms would be served spaces.
