Casa Cuartel in Oropesa Del Mar, Spain by Espegel Fisac Arquitectos

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Article source: Espegel Fisac Arquitectos

The building is organized in two pieces, shaping an L that defines the access square opened to Plana Avenue, being the natural way to the roads that are approaching from the urban center. The access from the square is common to the official buildings and housing, setting up one only entry point. The square is paved and gardened with palm trees.

EL “B” in Cartagena, Spain by SelgasCano Arquitectos

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Article source: SelgasCano Arquitectos

El “B” is this long construction, a body, that feeds on the heritage -the continuity- of a site’s treatment: THE Cartagena harbour, which is nothing but a harbour in Cartagena, borderline of the city from the sea. Everything here belongs to it, belongs to the port, any port we should say: the immaculate straightness of the pier edge (straight), the invariably calm sea (flat), the artificially horizontal plane of the dock (flat), the sky as the variable background for this plane (plane on a plane?), all based on an artifice to represent the simplest -and by virtue of its simplicity, the most natural, the most immensely artificial- plane that equates to the most natural.

Deck over a roman site in Cartagena, Spain by Amann-Canovas-Mauri

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Article source: Amann-Canovas-Mauri

The building is essentially a cover protecting the remains of a Roman assembly (thermal baths, forum and domus) in the archaeological site of Molinete Park in Cartagena, Spain.

This cover is certainly another piece in the historic area of Cartagena whose main architectural challenge is to reconcile very different architectures; from the roman time, passing through baroque to nowadays, making all the interventions vibrate together in the neighborhood. It is a transition element, between very diverse urban conditions: in size, material and structure; from the dense city centre to the sloping park.

H1 House in León, Spain by Santiago F. Carnerero

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Article source: Santiago F. Carnerero

The location of housing has been decisive in the genesis and  development of the project, first of all we find a neighborhood of single  family housing developments with a conventional architectural language  and the other hand a steep slope of land with beautiful views over the  banks of Bernesga river. The choice of a single material such as concrete  facilitates the resolution of structural problems associated with  establishing in this difficult location and stresses in sharp contrast with  its surroundings a commitment with contemporary architectural  language.

Chromatic Play in Mallorca, Spain by Juana Canet Arquitectos

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: Juana Canet Arquitectos

The project responds to the idea of extending the school with a multipurpose room in an adjacent plot which should be connected internally and have an independent entrance from the street.

The plot is rectangular in a 4:1 proportion and the aim is to have a whole 7 meter span open space with natural light and crossed ventilation. In order to achieve that the façade will have to provide as much light as possible and skylights will need to be incorporated in the roofing and on top of the internal staircase. The multipurpose room will be connected in two different levels with the school, at ground level through an ascendant staircase and at roofing level through a descending ramp.

Wine Museum ‘Vinseum’ in Barcelona, Spain by SVArquitectura

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: SVArquitectura

The proposal aims to preserve and rehabilitate the old medieval Royal Palace and the chapel of San Pellegrino and to transform them into a part of the new museum. The building in between them has to be demolished and replaced by a new one which forms the keystone of the entire ensemble. The void left by the demolition of the building ‘Cal Pa i Figues’ will be partially occupied by the construction of this new volume, attached to the Gothic palace and of the same height as its tower. The unoccupied part of the void allows defining a passage along the chapel of San Pellegrino which gives access to the new main entrance. This solution reminds to corresponding situations in the neighborhood.

E8 Building in Vitoria, Spain by Coll-Barreu Arquitectos

Friday, June 8th, 2012

Article source: Coll-Barreu Arquitectos

The E8 building is the result of a design competition called with the intention of highlight an ambitious expansion of Alava Technology Park, an institutional commitment to research whose validity and future should be represented by the building. The Park will rent or sell the full building by plants or by modules. The design should incorporate this uncertainty in use, which was taken as a positive requirement. The architecture must allow modify programs and adapt to uses, be transformable, such as the old buildings. Paradoxically, the building then gains in stability, in possibilities: we can say that the building wins time.
