Juan’s Apartment | vora

5.0 03 Before our intervention, in this apartment overlapping stages could be appreciated. Several uses through time accumulated layer over layer. At a first glance one could feel a strange and blurred atmosphere. But beyond confusion we could appreciate the power of its original defining features: a sequence of linked spaces, separated by a powerful rhythm of bearing walls; the […]

The church of Tas, Sopuerta | Garmendia Cordero Arquitectos

4.6 07 Any change in the use of a space obviously requires a series of actions that adapt said place to the new needs that are presented beyond the implicit ones that the mere updating of it entails. On this occasion, the task of transformation was as motivating as it was exceptional: transforming an abandoned Renaissance church into a home. […]

Wayco Ruzafa | Jose Costa Arquitecto

5.0 02 Si en algo se diferencia de manera radical nuestro tiempo de todas las épocas anteriores, es el modo de relacionarnos y comunicarnos. El desarrollo digital ha transformado todos los procesos interactivos hasta establecerse éste como un “espacio” virtual; espacio, por cumplir, en gran medida, los preceptos de lo que ello implica. Lo curioso es observar cómo los caminos […]

Benidorm Station | HULOT arch. Studio

4.8 17 Architecture is directly linked and interrelated to the concept of routine. We cohabitate with and within it every day, every hour and from this coexistence appear attachments and detachments. Normally, we wake up in the same place, we go to work in one or several locations, and to complete this habitual circle we shelter ourselves at home. Routine […]

Librería Palas | Arquitectura a Contrapelo

5.0 01 Desde que se abriera al público en 1980, la librería Palas ya destacaba entre los establecimientos de su género, al apostar por una fachada muy abierta, de líneas sencillas, y un acceso central secuenciado. Pero el paso del tiempo ha dejado su huella en unos paramentos invadidos por canalizaciones, huecos, señales y otras interferencias. La acción propuesta persigue […]

La excusa de tomar el té | Piano Piano Studio

5.0 01 Todas las casas son ojos que resplandecen y acechan. Todas las casas son bocas que escupen, muerden y besan. Todas las casas son brazos que se empujan y se estrechan. A los intocables versos de Miguel Hernández en su Cancionero y Romancero de ausencias, yo añadiría que todas las casas son corazón que todo lo rige y nos […]

Refurbishment of a small attached house | Mendaro Arquitectos

5.0 01 Workspace, exhibition space (and hidden dwelling). The premise was to carry out the refurbishment of a row house built in the 20s, classified as “recognized poverty housing”. There was a limited budget and the place’s character had to be kept in the outside. It has a front and a back garden. The idea was to set up an […]

5.0 02 The relation between the built environment and the person is a dialogue where both take part. The architecture, through space, light, colour, materialness, temperature, etc., produces a series of physical and emotional sensations that the person perceives. At the same time, the movements and behaviours of the person, or the use of space and its comprehension, basically, how […]

PLACE´TA | Juan Moya arquitectura

5.0 03 Intervention is a reactive architecture faced to the hostility of urban conditions in the site and to the scheduled mechanicism proper of a lifestyle inherited from the 20th Century modernity. An impersonal crossway with high traffic volume is balanced through a biophilic interior for collective meeting. Being today demands the pass towards metamodernity. The presence of a human […]

Ático C47 | El Tejado Azul

5.0 01 Constantemente intento mirar la arquitectura desde fuera de la burbuja de su conocimiento. Desde ahí se ve un común dilema entre cómo quiere vivir la gente y cómo se quiere proyectar arquitectura. Y en ese debate, unos reprochan falta de interés general por la cultura arquitectura (la cultura que nos cobija); otros achacan tener que justificar cómo quieren […]

5.0 01 The basic conception of housing in architecture tends towards an ideal whose purpose is to provide shelter for one or more inhabitants in a temporal period that extends from the middle to the long term. However, what terms would architecture use when a dwelling must respond to several inhabitants in short periods of time? What tools are available […]

Carité Clinic. Wellness Space | Piano Piano Studio

5.0 01 La arquitectura es ante todo un proceso mental, una abstracción necesaria que bebe de contextos tangibles, y cuyo destino es de nuevo el espacio físico. Pero sin ese proceso, sin ese lugar del pensamiento que recoge, medita y proyecta, no es posible su existencia. Adelantarse a los acontecimientos, imaginar una forma de vida o de uso que aún […]

5.0 07 It’s interesting how architecture, the most normal and common examples of which, still have the ability to surprise us. Within their compactness, dark spaces are hidden and in the expanse of their walls; fragments of life. A mortar door is a renouncing and a creation, a layer of paint, a new intention; a buried pavement, a regret; an […]
