El abrazo in Madrid, Spain by estudio UNTERCIO

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Article source: estudio UNTERCIO

“El abrazo” bets on making compatible housing units quality and urban fabric. In order to improve the relation with the city, decision was made in reducing building scale, searching for a friendlier appearance. For achieving this, instead of the linear block (9 storey + recessed penthouse) proposed by planning, a lower and broken up building was designed. The benefits of this gesture with regard to the linear block is that this way the house faces more orientations achieving both better urban scale and, from the inner perspective, better air circulation and natural lighting.

VALLECAS 47 in Madrid, Spain by Estudio UNTERCIO

Friday, March 1st, 2013

Article source: Estudio UNTERCIO

We tried to imagine, all of us together, a dwelling in which we would like to live. Bright and open to meet with friends some of us said, intimate and in semidarkness, the laziest ones replied. A dwelling with a multiple personality. One that would be able to react to the changing seasons. One that would open itself to two different environments; on one side, a street belonging to a new urban development, but close to the urban life of Vallecas Village, and on the other side, a bounded and safe courtyard.

House of Would in Madrid, Spain by Elii

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

Article source: Elii

This house is located in a 1,316 m2 sloping plot of land in the district of Pedrezuela,45 km north of Madrid. There is little to no vegetation in the section closest to the street, which nevertheless provides a good viewpoint on the surrounding lush natural landscape.

The building is made up of seven wooden-structure modules symmetrically identical surrounding a central court. Each module is dedicated to a different domestic situation, according to its functional needs. The modular structure, as well as the scale of the rooms allows the alteration of this functional logic, serving as a support for possible future layouts.

The town of Viladecans is situated in the county of Baix Llobregat, in Barcelona province. Originally standing on the Barcelona road, now the C-245, running parallel to the coastline and communicating the towns on the left of the Llobregat delta with those along its edge, it followed a linear development until the 1950s, with the aim of connecting the town centre with those of nearby towns along the C-245.

ALV&NAT House in Madrid, Spain by ALT arquitectura

We are used to perform spectacular photographic reports retouched in photoshop to show a perfection, which is neither true, nor is attractive in my opinion. We focus on an architecture more intuitive and emotional than intellectual and rational, where raw sincerity of its construction. We try to generate emotions, derived from the configuration of space and form, use of materials, their textures, their relationship with nature and light.

W Barcelona Hotel in Barcelona, Spain by Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Article source: Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura

The sea is always an enormous challenge for an architect. The Mediterranean Sea is the most unusual site. The infrastructure works started with the opening of the new mouth that effectively divides theBarcelonaharbour into two areas: small and big ships. The urban mission of the project is to provide an extension at the south point to the city waterfront. The project includes a public plaza opening to the sea, a marina and a landmark hotel, a wonderful icon for a cosmopolitan city.

Silicon House in Madrid, Spain by Selgas Cano

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Article source: Selgas Cano

This is an allotment on a gentle slope covered by evergreen oak, elm, ash, acacia, prunus and plane trees, all seeded spontaneously by birds from the surrounding plots. All of these trees and their canopy perimeters were measured and drawn on to plan. Le Corbusier said he wanted the empty La Tourette courtyard to be populated naturally with vegetation, by birds and the wind. Le Corbusier left a void in his architecture to be populated by nature. We think this project has arisen in opposition to that idea.
