JP House in Cuenca, Spain by MYCC Office Architecture

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

Article source: MYCC Office Architecture

In most developed countries´ small villages it is very difficult to find craftsmen who work in the traditional way. Somehow, a manner of making products can be given up for loss. The romantic idea of a really traditional construction method is just too naïve. What is usually built are just cheap copies of rural houses that usually does not have an origin in that specific place, but in some ideal villages from Lord of the Rings or Joan of Arc films. Everything out of this becomes either too expensive or simply impossible.

Article source: Concrete Architectural Associates

Hotel Castell D’emporda located in Girona, Spain offers a signature restaurant including a large terrace with great views over the surrounding landscape. Concrete designed, at the clients’ request, a roof or covering for this terrace with the possibility to create an enclosed space with full wind and rain protection. One of the design conditions was to create a covering that works in harmony with the historical and listed building. Additionally we wanted to maintain the terrace feeling while be seated under the covering.

NIARA in Valladolid, Spain by Amas4arquitectura

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

Article source: Amas4arquitectura

The Niara Sports Club needed a place of its own for its activities. After finding a suitable site in an easily accessible, outlying residential area with a low population density, the Schola Foundation decided to concentrate a large number of its activities into a single building, thus fulfilling a number of complex requirements that included an educational and recreational area for children at two different stages of development- “small” and “big” children; a separate area for parents’ meetings and activities, an area for offices, a residential area, and a block of independent services. All of the above were laid out around the chapel which, together with the sports complex, is the nucleus of the centre.

3D Fountain in Zaragoza, Spain by Lumiartecnia Internacional

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Article source: Lumiartecnia Internacional

The first three-dimensional fountain in the world. This state-of-the-art fountain behaves as a three-dimensional water sculpture continually evolving in an attractive and interactive way. This project is a breakthrough in the concept of architectural fountains.

Delicias Station square is defined by consistent lines with the aesthetics of the High Speed train station building, being the water the main protagonist of the proposal. A central space with a reflecting pool offers the possibility of becoming a temporary skating ice rink; water games arising below the pavement energize the space. Bodies of small grass fields rippled by the wind between almond trees and tamaryx bushes define stay spaces near the front of the station.

The existing Social Center expands with a third new volume located at the south area of the building complex. This new wing redefines two patios of distinct character: the first courtyard is an enclosure and has a cloister character, and the second one is more opened and dynamic.

16 Social Housing for Granollers Town Hall in Barcelona, Spain by ONL Arquitectura

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Article source:

The architectural strategy used has been to create a building whose exterior is defined by a language that seeks abstraction through colour, rhythm, and movement: a language that will contrast with the domestic private life of the residents inside. To combine these two concepts moveable panels have been mounted on the façades. By opening or closing them, residents can choose the level of light or privacy they want at any time throughout the year.

La Baldufa Municipal Kindergarten in Baix Llobregat, Barcelona by ONL Arquitectura

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Article source: ONL Arquitectura

As the site is small and triangular in shape, the project design has to focus on devoting as much exterior space as possible to the playground, in a single area oriented to the south. The simplicity of the exterior building envelope, in particular the roof which has a single slope, is only broken by two skylights which provide the natural light needed inside the classrooms in a uniform way.

Housing in Valdemorillo, Spain by Otto Medem Arquitectura

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Article source: Otto Medem Arquitectura

The project is commissioned by a couple of journalists who seek peace on the outskirts of the city. The house is broken into 3 volumes to suit the rugged topography of the land. The pieces are positioned to find the best views of the mountains and take in the serenity. Solar positioning was also considered with the placement of each room, depending on its designated use. The union of these 3 parts is established through the connection of their facades, with bands that cross and give expression to the project.

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.
