El local destinado a Clínica Dental está situado en la transitada Avenida Primo de Rivera de la ciudad de A Coruña. Nos encontramos con un local de unos 170 m2 en planta baja con una forma en "L" trapezoidal y con una única fachada abierta a la calle.

El programa se distribuye a lo largo de un pasillo formado por unas geometrías curvas y transparentes para conseguir sensaciones de amplitud, confort y obtener el máximo de luz natural en el interior de la clínica. Este eje longitudinal articula la parte pública de la clínica, donde los pacientes tendrán acceso, formada por la sala de espera, la recepción y los boxes  con el área privada destinada al trabajo personal de los odontólogos y también al descanso de los trabajadores.

La sala de espera se ubica en el acceso desde la calle y cerca de la recepción. Se diseña como un espacio de transición. Se utiliza un pavimento hidráulico y en las paredes se colocan lamas de madera para contrarrestar con calidez. También se ubica una lámina de agua a modo de fuente para conseguir una adecuada atmosfera.

Los tres boxes se plantean con materiales sanitarios que faciliten la perfecta higiene para los tratamientos de odontología o cirugía que se requieran. Las divisiones están formadas por vidrios para obtener el máximo de luz natural y unas cortinas correderas que  facilitan el grado de privacidad necesario.

A medida que caminamos a lo largo del local se distribuye el área privada que gestiona el despacho principal, áreas de descanso, el trabajo de taller y almacén.  Esta área se aleja de la entrada y salida de pacientes, para buscar la tranquilidad y comodidad de sus trabajadores, ya sea para descansar o para buscar la concentración en su trabajo.

El local destinado a Clínica Dental está situado en la transitada Calle Juan Flórez de la ciudad de A Coruña. Nos encontramos con un local de unos 150 m2 muy estrecho y alargado, con dos fachadas al exterior únicamente; una de ellas abierta a la calle, y la posterior a un patio interior común.

Nos planteamos la idea de distribuir el local en dos áreas: la pública, donde los pacientes tendrán acceso a todas las áreas destinadas a odontología y cirugía; por otro lado, el área privada destinada al trabajo personal de los odontólogos y también al descanso de los trabajadores. Por lo tanto, el mostrador de recepción es el encargado de distribuir el área pública, siendo capaz de organizar el hall de entrada junto con la sala de espera, así como dos box y la zona de esterilización. Todo ello iluminado con luz natural sin dejar de lado las vistas de la Calle Juan Flórez. A medida que caminamos a lo largo del local, y vinculado a la fachada trasera, se distribuye la área privada que gestiona el despacho principal, áreas de descanso y el trabajo de taller. Este área se aleja de la entrada y salida de pacientes, para buscar la tranquilidad y comodidad de sus trabajadores, ya sea para descansar o para buscar la concentración en su trabajo.

Debido a las condiciones del local caracterizado por longitud, su estrechez y su poca iluminación natural, uno de los principales materiales utilizado es vidrio. Mediante su uso como elemento de distribución, nos permite aprovechar la luz natural al máximo, pero sin evitar la privacidad en determinados espacios que este tipo de locales requiere.

Toda la distribución de la clínica gira en torno a la idea de elementos verticales, ya sea para el revestimiento o la decoración de paramentos. Determinados espacios de la clínica están revestidos con listones de madera manteniendo la idea de verticalidad, que además incorporan iluminación en su parte trasera, lo que proporciona una iluminación muy agradable y característica. Así como el mostrador de entrada, considerado un elemento distribuidor del espacio de entrada, está revestido con listones de las mismas características. Por otro lado, para garantizar la privacidad en las consultas, los elementos divisorios de vidrio disponen de una serie de listones serigrafiados, garantizando cierta opacidad pero permitiendo al mismo tiempo la iluminación de los espacios.

LOCATION: Redes, La Coruña. Galicia.

BUILDER: GRUPO DESARROLLA WORKS S.L.P.

BUDGET: ______

BUILT SURFACE: 500 m2

Redes is a small fishing village of the early twentieth century, situated on the northern edge of the estuary of Ares located in the Galician Rias Altas. This town was awarded by the College of Architects in the International Day of Architecture 2009 for preserving the original design in the planning. The town is also known as the "Galician Venice" because of the proximity of the buildings to the sea.

On the street called Rua Nova, included in a town extension of the forties, are located two houses, numbers 42 and 44 which currently include the functions of a habitat and architectural firm.

The project involves the rehabilitation and extension of two existing houses which didn´t preserve the traditional urban configuration of Redes, due to rehabilitation suffered in the 80's. To recover the traditional architecture of the fishing village by a contemporary method, the project was based on a reinterpretation, using materials such as Iroko wood, laminated wood beams, tiles or white mortar.

The houses are arranged symmetrically on the original stone-built wall. These are divided into three levels, the first level accessed from the seafront facade at the Rua Nova into the main hall, two rooms and a bathroom. On the first floor, a dining room and kitchen linked to a back garden and with a gallery overlooking the estuary. On the second floor two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The stairs are located in the midle of the house and are designed as a sculpture, changing from the ground floor to the second. On the ground floor they are made of solid oak with a large closet on the inside, and on the first floor they are metal, very light and painted white allowing transparency.

Taking the steps across the Rua Nova, you come across a low wall of granite called Porto Radeiro, partly the property of the houses. Pulling a rope you can reach a Dorna, a Galician traditional vessel, which is the main transport system through the estuarys.

Furnishing includes the fireplace designed by Miguel Mila for DAE, the bathroom suites which are a selection of David Chipperfield for Roca, Menorquine orange canvas chairs and lounge sofas designed by Diaz y Diaz Architects, arranged in several modules to create a central table or a large bed, and a living space around the chimney.

The building that now a days deals Caixa Galicia Foundation was rehabilitated in 2002, being previously the military government.

This rehabilitation kept the building´s structure, providing the building with the installations required for the new use.

It is a 5-storey building with an average area per floor of 500m2.

After analyzing of the routes and the spaces, we realized that the rooms that were not for exhibition were not used at all.

This project aims to activate those spaces and give the building a more attractive offer to the public.

The project includes a library, a bar and a net area.

The place where the project it's located is essential to develop the abstract form of the project.

On the parcel are located the ruins of a small chapel. The client wanted to transform the space between walls in a large open space attached to a server space consists on a small dining room and several bedrooms, keeping the existing chapel.

We proposed a space formed by a large grid bounded by a series of geometric points that were essential for us.

This grid is extended for the most open areas of the site forming a large diaphanous space.

The public could view the performances inside and outside the building.

The project comprises the ground floor and mezzanine, with the planned creation of three premises without specific use (functions dependant on the license granted) and three duplex apartments with direct access to the inner courtyard of the block, five floors with six dwellings per landing and two basement floors for parking.

As the building is located very near the Sagrada Familia within the 'Ensanche' district of Barcelona, the Calle Napols façade will aim to be a modern interpretation of the conditions inherent in the "Ensanche typology" projecting the dictates of the strict rules that are required in this area.

The façade achieves the regulatory requirements, such as a flat and symmetrical treatment, through the creation of vertical wooden slats with holes in the timber, reminiscent of "bar codes', all reaffirming the desired vertical composition.

The flatness of the facade, in this case and in line with what the local council allows, is justified since the split of the reference plane of the block (natural stone) with another plane at 45 cm (aluminium and glass flying plane). The differential treatment of the two planes reinforces the concept of dual flatness.

These metal panels have a horizontal opening system and are pierced with patterns designed to interact with the sun and create transparency.

The external cladding will feature fine materials such as pale grey quartzite to harmonise and reference the neighbouring typologies.

The project comprises the ground floor and mezzanine, with the planned creation of three premises without specific use (functions dependant on the license granted) and five offices with direct access to the inner courtyard of the block, five floors with six dwellings per landing and two basement floors for parking.

The ground floor contains vehicular access to the car park, three premises, and the main entrance with pedestrian access to the car park, the vertical core to access the apartments and the access to the five offices that open out on to the interior patio.

Six apartments are planned on each of the next five floors of the building with three at the front and three at the rear, two one-bedroom flats and four two-bedroom flats. The flats that overlook the interior courtyard have balconies.

As the building is located very near the Sagrada Familia within the 'Ensanche' district of Barcelona, the Calle Mallorca façade will aim to be a modern interpretation of the conditions inherent in the "Ensanche typology" projecting the dictates of the strict rules that are required in this area.

The differential treatment of the two planes reinforces the concept of dual flatness.

Windows are protected by a series of moving slats, which personalises the building, provides protection from the sun and allows beautiful views of Sagrada Familia.

SPONSOR: GESINMO 99 S.L.

BUILDER: DRAGADOS, S.A.

BUDGET: -----

BUILT SURFACE: 400 m2

The first request put forward by the owner regarding the interior design project for the construction of the new restaurant LOIDI, with head chef Martin Berasategui, was the dual function the space needed to fulfill: for the first part of the day it needs to act as the buffet-restaurant for the hotel "Comtes de Barcelona", while the rest of the day, it needs to transform itself into a restaurant open to the public.

The need for a double purpose for the space led to the emergence of a second access, linked directly to the hotel, as well as the presence of a large multifunctional curved wood cabinet which ends up becoming the main protagonist of the space, taking on different forms depending on the needs of each moment and bringing together the breakfast buffet, reception, the bar and office, whilst also serving as a visual barrier to the entrance of the kitchen.

The space has been divided into three parts, which the artist Ruth Zaragoza has sequenced from three personal creations inspired by the leisurely ceremony a good meal, the third of which consists of a double glass wall filled with coffee filters, which serves to define the area for smoking customers.

Pictorial creations are supported by pale wooden furniture, which serve a dual role: host the set of cupboards, drawers and shelves necessary for the proper functioning of the dining room and hide the presence of a series of concrete pillars that are required for the structural join of the building.

The project has sought at all times to take full advantage of the presence of natural light that comes both from the large stained glass window that looks out on Calle Mallorca and through a skylight at the rear of the premises and that in turn allows you to contemplate the rear facade of the hotel located above the restaurant.

This residential project develop units A4 and A5, B2 under the guidelines of the Modificación puntual del P.G.M. en el sector "Bon Salvador"

The arrangement and volumetry are determined by the current planning legislation.

The resultant plan is for two rectangular prisms with a lower section (PB +5) situated on the south side of the site. Unit A5 stands on a ground floor that occupies the entire site and will be given over to commercial use. The entire project has three basement floors for parking and storage, in order to comply with the minimum number of parking spaces required by the guideline and to be cost effective.

The project should have a uniform approach to volumetry, facade treatment, typologies and treatment of community spaces.

Regarding the typologies :

Each unit has a staircase with two lifts serving four apartments per floor in each stairway, with a functional distribution of two, three and four bedrooms, living/dining area, kitchen, terrace and two bathrooms, except for the two-bedroom units which only have one bathroom.

The south facing facades are open and permeable enough to take advantage of the sun, the views, the terraces and the private gardens, as each apartment features the living and dining rooms on this side. Filters such as shutters, louvers, awnings etc can control the exposure to sun.

This residential project develops units B5, B2 under the guidelines of the la Modificación puntual del P.G.M in the "Bon Salvador" sector.

The volumetry of the buildings is orthogonal with a maximum variable height of GF +5 and GF +7 as dictated by the guidelines.

The arrangement and its volumetry are determined by the current planning legislation.

Therefore the end result has been three rectangular prisms of 5.18 m depth, 60 m. length and variable height. Project units B5 and B6 have two basement levels

dedicated to parking and storage and unit B2 has three basement levels, in order to comply with the minimum number of parking spaces required by the guidelines

and to reduce the cost of the foundation system.

Project units B5 and B6 have four sets of stairs with two apartments per floor in each stairway. In housing unit B6 the dwellings on each floor all have the same functional

pattern of living/dining area, kitchen, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a terrace. In housing unit B5 the dwellings on the first, second and third floors also have the

same functional pattern as described above, while the fourth and fifth floors feature duplex apartments.

In housing unit B2 the apartments located on the first to fifth floors all have the same functional pattern, except one of the stairways which has three apartments per

landing. Two apartments and two Duplexes are located on the sixth floor of the same stairway.

The building will have a brick façade. The side elevation of the Block B2 is facing the street A, the main axes of the area , therefore is treated as one of the main façades.

A curved building, which descends from the pine forest adapting to the land. The hotel located in the PGA Golf de Catalunya was one of the projects selected for Comarcas de Girona Architecture awards.

Curving the building allows us to clearly distinguish the access points from the private areas of the hotel, all of which are blessed with being southwards facing. As one approaches the hotel, it appears as a changing element within the landscape. This adaptation to the topography happens both on the ground floor as on the sloping roof that generates a dynamic profile. The simple trick of grouping the galleries and the windows in pairs allows us to reduce the apparent size of the building. The entrance of light in to the hallways and the windows with diagonal views, allow us to regain a connection with the landscape.

In addition to these general decisions, the high quality finishes are a reference to the Mediterranean tradition of modernity. The white building of changeable configuration, which becomes the background of the landscape, the black stone in the skirtings giving us the effect of buoyancy, the wood in large sections to assess its touch of quality, and finally the glass in large panels that allow us to enjoy the landscape and golf course.

The lobby, the real heart of the building, occupies a section of each floor and connects them in a single four storey space. The journey up the lobby staircase is symbolic of the way the hotel connects its interior with the landscape.

This project is to develop housing unit project 6 (Block H, I and J) of the ¨Cal Doctor¨area.

The volumetry of the buildings is rectangular and is three storeys (Ground Floor + 2), plus attic space, as dictated by law. Each block has a basement for both parking and storage.

The project has been treated with a uniform approach both in respect to volumetry, treatment of façade, typologies and the treatment of community spaces.

Block H has two staircases with two apartments per floor in each stairway, the apartments on the ground floor and first floor have the same functional layout; the second floor apartments share the same functional pattern, and all having attic spaces, are therefore counted as duplexes.

The J block is the same as the H block but with one extra stairway.

Block I has two staircases, one with two apartments per floor and the other (looking on to Calle Riera de la Coma Fosca) with three apartments per floor, except on the ground floor where one of the three dwellings has independent access. On the second floor, the three apartments are duplexes; one of them has the same functional setup as the duplexes on the other staircase in the same block, while the other two duplexes overlooking Calle Riera de la Coma Fosca have similar layouts.

The treatment of the ends of the blocks I and J has been taken into account, as they overlook Calle Riera de la Coma Fosca, one of the main streets of both the development and the municipality.

The southfacing facades are open and permeable enough to take advantage of the sun, the views, the terraces and the private gardens as each apartment features the living and dining rooms on this side.

BUDGET: 1.031.107,17 euros

BUILT SURFACE: 3.447,05m2

The building consists of three levels of underground car park, a ground floor (with mezzanine) and five floors with a facade width of 12 meters that corresponds with the majority most tenement buildings in Eixample.

On the Calle Provenza façade, the ground floor is subdivided in to a commercial premises and the access to the lobby and car park, while the ground floor facade in the interior courtyard block is occupied by two "Duplex" apartments with garden.

The typological solution on the fifth floor is composed differently from the rest of the façade, breaking the buildings symmetry with the emergence of a dwelling which seeks to emulate the expressive value of the formerly desirable "entresuelos" (typical ´half floors´ between the ground and first floors) whose desirability, thanks to the advent of elevator technology, has now been usurped by the better environmental conditions and exposure to sun of the upper levels.

The solution proposed for the Calle Provenza façade, an important location within the renowned Eixample district, is designed to interpret the patterns characteristic of this important architectural and urban area, using language more typical of contemporary architecture and featuring a flat and symmetrical treatment of the facade with the appearance of vertical glass elements that will give the façade with a degree of verticality, as required by the strict regulations in this sector of the city.

The rear façade opening on to the internal block courtyard has spacious balconies that allow you to enjoy the optimum orientation, while the placement of some coiled masonry to provide shade recovers the "galleries" of the typical internal courtyards of the Eixample.

A dual set of colours (grey and white) between the plane of the rear façade and the planes formed by the "screens" creates a dynamic and varied composition that gives identity to the building.

This project aims to augment one of the buildings of the hotel "Comtes de Barcelona", the building known as the "Center", from 74 rooms to 120, while providing it with new rooms and spaces for multiple uses. In addition to the expansion, the project also proposes a continuation of internal reforms in the "Center" to enable it to perform to a higher standard. The hotel will keep its four stars.

The most difficult and compromising decision has been the resolution of the external look of the building, whilst at the same time needing to resolve the join between the existing and new constructions so that both buildings can be understood as one whole, and to give them a modern and inviting look. All this, with the added difficulty of having to maintain a concurrent dialogue with both the lower older section of the existing building, which is heavy and solid, and the more recent, lighter glass section.

In the rear section, due to the complication of the party wall with the neighboring building, the alignment with neighboring building, and regularizing the facades of the inner 'apple' block, a patio of three meters wide by 12 meters long is proposed, leaving an area free from construction, allowing for proper ventilation of all rear rooms.

The first decision was to continue the green-skinned, all-glass look, to maintain the idea of being an extension.

The other decision to define a superimposed second skin was influenced by the following requirements: the need to establish a formal horizontal continuity with the older, stone section, of very strong lines and the need to place a filter to soften the effect of the glass inside the room.

BUILT SURFACE: 114.941 m2

The aim of this project is to develop the area currently occupied by two obsolete industrial complexes, in order to address the demand for new housing and to renovate the area, providing facilities and improving accessibility.

The facilities and the green spaces of the area also have the aim of improving the quality of the environment.

Access to the site has been resolved through the existing main roads (Avenida de Laureà Miró and calle Armenteres ) and a planned road(a variant of the N-340, located on the edge of the township) on the perimeter of the site. As a result, the connection between the main site roads and the external ones, allows for a high level of accessibility to the area from the surrounding municipalities and a good relationship with the town center.

The internal road system is based around a road perpendicular to the future iteration of the N-340. This road-avenue provides the frame work for the planned buildings and green spaces , linking the future variant of the N-340 with a new road connecting Calle de Anselmo Clavé with Avenida de Laureà Miró.

The parking spaces within the public zone have been allocated according to the predicted population density.

First of all, it is worth noting that the main objective of this project is to organise one of the areas that due to its extension and urban location has become one of the most important urban areas of the town of Alella.

Over time and due to the proximity of the different developments (Alella Parc, Nova Alella, The Sun, Mas Coll ,....), the area in question has become an empty urban site with considerable dimensions which in terms of accessibility, urban structure and systems of public spaces, has complicated the possibility of suitably managing the urban development of Alella.

It is important to recognize this planning as a great opportunity for the municipality to improve the connection between residential areas, substantially improving the quality of the environment that has hitherto been developed by reducing public spaces to roads.

This planning project will also respond to the need of social housing for a large proportion of Alella's population. The proposal includes the construction of social housing and units to rent to young people.

Included in these objectives is the development of private homes. These will provide mult-family housing taking the utmost advantage of the land.

The development of this sector could reduce the pressure to develop areas that are less suitable for urbanization.

The functional program is developed in a Building of 20 bedrooms, a living room, offices and waiting rooms, a dining room both for the inhabitants and for guests and an area for services such as a chapel and a library. The chapel and library are both located on two separate buildings.

The building has two floors: the top one dedicated solely to bedrooms (14) and offices with related facilities, and the rest of the units are located on the ground floor. This floor also includes a set of 6 bedrooms with shared facilities. Access between the two floors is through a linear staircase in a double room from which you access the main units of the building.

The main volume two storeys high is situated perpendicular to the road, with a good southeasterly facing aspect for the bedrooms and living rooms, placing the dining rooms and facilities in the rear of the building plus a single storey volume for access to the independent facilities.

The chapel and the library have been configured as single storey volumes, at either side of the entrance to the retirement home and near the main entrance of the building, to ensure that their usage does not compromise the functioning of normal activities of the private residence.

A private garden organized by the locations of shrubs between the building and the riverside forest generates different relationships with the bedrooms volume and the library.

The criteria followed in the project responds to the distribution of spaces and openings, as well as the treatment of facades (color and texture) and frames with a balanced composition.

One of the objectives of study was the "formalization of a new facade on Calle Horta, reformulating a new section of road to solve the urban landscape problem generated by the party wall of the building located at the corner of Calle de Coimbra and Calle de Horta.

The new building is proposed as a volume of elongated proportions giving maximum frontage to Calle Horta and the Parque de la Amistad and with a constant height to makes it appear as one unit. This height coincides with the height of the building at the corner of Calle Coimbra, to give a unified façade to the Calle Horta.

The topographical difficulties caused by the sloping Calle Horta have been resolved through the provision of a wide and uniform section of pavement, in accordance with the municipal precisions, and platform access to the housing section.

The different in levels between Calle Horta and the Parque de la Amistad allows for a car park formed of two underground levels.

The building in question contains a set of nine units assigned to the Centro de Educación Infantil (Early Childhood Education Centre) in accordance with the provisions of Decree 1004 of November 1991 relating to the two educational streams being taught at the centre.

The positioning of the building within the site took into account both functional criteria (proximity to the main building and other facilities, etc) and the high landscape values.

The functional layout of the building is spread across two floors, including three ground floor classrooms and other ancillary facilities required by law: a lobby, dining room, kitchen, multipurpose room, office and teachers´ room. The upper floor includes a total of six classrooms connected by a long corridor illuminated by natural light along one side. The floors are reached by a central staircase of two flights, opening laterally in to the garden area next to the entrance to the existing main hall, with a second external single-flight staircase, located on the end opposite to the main entrance.

The classrooms, each with an area of 51 m2 and a capacity for 25 students, are located on the south-west side of the building to ensure good exposure to sunlight; the corresponding toilets for each unit are also situated in the south-west section of the building, with direct access from the inside of each classroom, with the aim of ensuring maximum light and ventilation.

A portico structure is proposed in the entryway between the boiler room and the main entrance in order to increase its importance.

The playground has been situated just outside the classrooms, considered the best location, providing an area covered by a pergola in front of the dining area, thereby protecting it from an excessive amount of sunshine.

Residential building with commercial premises and garage designed on a V shape, with the apex lying on Avenida de Sarrià at the meeting point of the extension of Calle Entenza, with one side aligned to Calle Dr.Fleming attemtping a spatial continuity, and the other side orthogonal to the existing block on the Calle Bori i Fontestà, facing the new adjacent urban park.

There is open space between the two wings of the building and the covered ground floor space at the apex; the remainder of the open space is private.

The composition of the volume and its urban image tries to reduce the impact of the building. The aim of the south-eastern end of the curved development is to become the orthogonal meeting point of the building with the Avenida Sarrià. Its positioning at the end of the calle Anglesola allows it to become an important nucleus of access for both cars and pedestrians, its height hinging between the two wings of the building.
