SILEX – EMVS Foro Habitat Sostenible Competition in Madrid, Spain by Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Due to the situation and the characteristics of the plot, and taking advantage of the free ground floor to generate the access for the center instead of for an end, the project appears as a threshold of access to the Colonies of “Nuestra Señora de los Angeles”, a step between the urban environment and the green space that proposes the plan.

Footbridge over the River Segre in Lleida, Spain by Ravetllat Ribas Arquitectos

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Ravetllat Ribas Arquitectos

The footbridge seeks only to be a link between the two banks of the river Segre where it crosses the city of Lleida. Understood more as an itinerary than as a place in which to remain, the new footbridge at no time pretends to erase the perception of being suspended at a great height over the riverbed. This thought has led to an adjusted dimensioning that make compatible pedestrian and bicycle traffic with that of service vehicles. In this way, the crossing of the entire width of the river is solved with two single pillars and no other support.

A House in Pamplona, Spain by Vaillo & Irigaray + Beguiristain

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Vaillo & Irigaray + Beguiristain

The renovation of this home suggests a consideration on the consequences to be derived from the implementation of a new -almost palatial- scale.

A strategy has been planned: to shape a sole plan by means of large board pavement – 15m length x 30cm width.

This concept is emphasized by the employment of a theatrical iconography: curtains covering the whole space, disfiguring backgrounds, blurring space continuity and generating some thrilling chambers.

Article source: Ravetllat-Ribas

The relocation of Sant Antoni Sunday Market needed a site located near the old Market, which is nowadays being refurbished by our office. Only hosting a sales area one morning a week, it was needed to put in place reversible solutions that do not alter the space in its weekly configuration.

Remodelling of Banc Sabadell in Barcelona, Spain by Josep Lluís Mateo

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Article source: Josep Lluís Mateo

On various occasions, we were asked to intervene in the most public areas of a lovely building dating from the 1950s (the work of the architect FrancescMitjans).

The entrance hall had been disfigured by a series of interventions that had rendered it complex and disjointed; we set out to clarify its function and its urban role.

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.
