Selected as one of the 20 most visionary domestic spaces of the last 100 years, at the exhibition 'HOME STORIES 100 YEARS, 20 VISIONARY INTERIORS', Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein (2020). * Finalist in the Simon Architecture Prize, Living Places 2018 * Shortlisted for Premis Fad 2018, Category - Interior Architecture 2018 * Finalist Archdaily's 2018 Building of the Year Awards, in the Interior Architecture Category 2018 Complete refurbishment of an apartment in Madrid A dual strategy is applied to this project: Firstly, the floor plan arrangement is based on an L-shaped service band that integrates the access, wet areas, storage areas and leisure spaces. This frees up the main area, which opens up to the windows and balconies to create a brightly lit atmosphere. The intimate areas are therefore secluded and sheltered from view from the entrance. On the other hand, the apartment is arranged into two levels: the level at the elevation of the entrance and the main room, plus a second level, 90 centimetres higher up, extending beyond the kitchen surface, where the leisure area and the bathroom are located. The two […]

Colegio Oficial de Arquitectos de Madrid (2013).  * House of Would, Madrid. Selected work for the Arquia Próxima Award Interior Design and Refurbishment. Arquia Foundation, Caja de Arquitectos (2014). * Selected work in the XII Bienal Española de Arquitectura y Urbanismo, 2013 Pre industrised in Pedrezuela, Madrid This house is located in a 1,316 m2 sloping plot of land in the district of Pedrezuela, 45 km north of Madrid. There is little to no vegetation in the section closest to the street, which nevertheless provides a good viewpoint on the surrounding lush natural landscape. The building is made up of seven wooden-structure modules symmetrically identical surrounding a central court. Each module is dedicated to a different domestic situation, according to its functional needs. The modular structure, as well as the scale of the rooms allows the alteration of this functional logic, serving as a support for possible future layouts. The house adapts to the plot of land in a layered fashion depending on the different degrees of privacy needed: private rooms are hidden from […]

Colegio Oficial de Arquitectos de Madrid, 2018 Urban strategy for the 32nd edition of the Veranos de la Villa (Summers in the city) Festival + Mad + is a strategic project to deploy the programme of the Veranos de la Villa (VdV) festival throughout the urban fabric of Madrid. Following last year’s strategy, the various activities and events of the VdV (which used to be clustered in downtown Madrid in previous editions) will be spread throughout the city for 2017. The spaces of its 21 districts will therefore be turned into stages for the activities of this traditional Madrid festival. During the two months of the festival, citizens are encouraged to wander through the city, explore it and meet up with/in it. One of the main goals of the project is to let citizens and visitors rediscover Madrid through experience, to open a world of possibilities for public spaces in Madrid. The project is based on the mapping of the Centro, Arganzuela, Retiro, Salamanca, Chamberí, Tetuán, Chamartín, Fuencarral - El Pardo, Moncloa - Aravaca, Latina, Carabanchel, Usera, Puente […]

The Urban Tree visualizes the functions that a common tree performs in the everyday life of a city. The top part configures a marquee featuring solar photovoltaic panels and vegetation panels for plants. The supports are especially designed as urban furniture, exhibiting benches and cycling points. The Urban Trees are meeting points and exercise areas. When you cycle at the tree, you generate the energy that waters the plants and supplies electricity for the illumination. But, at the same time, while cycling at the tree you look after yourself. […]

089 · carrIAGES FOR THE THREE KINGS Travelling on a constellation   ABSTRACT* First Award COAM -ex aequo- (Official Professional Association of Architects of Madrid), 2017 * Finalist FAD Award, Category: Ephemeral Interventions, 2017 Carriage of the Madrid Council, parade of the Three Kings, Madrid As the sun set on 5th January 2016, Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar travelled the streets of Madrid on constellations of light, to be welcomed by hundreds of thousands of children. The carriages of the Three Kings are built as a kaleidoscope of lights and mirrors, a dynamic optical device that is activated by the motion of the vehicles, playfully challenging the citizens' perception. The sides, formed by reflective aluminium pyramids, multiply the points of light and their depth, and are topped by a longitudinal platform that allows the to-ing and fro-ing of Their Royal Highnesses and their Assistants during the parade. A space for the utilities is also included inside. The geometry of the pyramids also ensures the generators are correctly ventilated. Platforms at the front and rear serve to stack the bags of sweets that will be handed out during the parade. Each of the carriages has a predominating colour that is nuanced with […]

067 · didomestic Every house is a teather  ABSTRACT*Arquia Próxima Award - Interior Design and Refurbishment, 2014 Project for the complete refurbishment of an attic in downtown Madrid The scope of the project covers from the development of a customised functional proposal for a user that is turning a new leaf to the rehabilitation of the structure, the insulation, the facilities and the modernisation of the existing construction systems. The selected approach removes all obstacles from the floor to provide the greatest possible flexibility. Two basic elements are used: firstly, the central core, comprising the staircase, some shelves and the larder. The core is at the centre of the main space under the mansard roof. It connects the access floor and the space under the roof and allows the natural lighting coming through the roof into the living room. Secondly, there are two side strips for the functional elements (kitchen, bathroom, storage space and domestic appliances). This basic arrangement is complemented by two strategies that provide flexibility to the domestic spaces. Firstly, the moving panels that are integrated into the core and run along guide rails. These panels can be used to create different arrangements, such as adding an […]

076 · susaloon Every house is a theatre Refurbishment of a minimal space, Madrid   ABSTRACT* Selected work to be part of the Spanish Pavillion in the 15th International Architecture of Venize, 2016, winner of the Golden Lion, 2016 Every house is a theatre How can you get a multitude of spaces out of only one? Susaloon is a minimal intervention in a domestic space to convert Susana’s home into a flexible and transformable space. The project development comprises three simple strategies. The first one is an acupuncture operation to adapt the configuration of the space to the needs of its inhabitant, relocating certain household items to optimise the distribution and everyday use. The second strategy involves opening up certain divisions to extend some spaces such as the living room. There will thus be more natural lighting and wonderful views of the Madrid horizon for the inhabitable spaces. The third strategy is the integration of a series of fold-down and sliding devices that are used to divide the spaces, deploy a work space, a large dining table, a bed for a surprise guest, a spacious area to practice shiatsu or to reorganise the storage space. As a result, the main space […]

Maria Jerez - Alma de Rimel ] The Glammatics - PNEU 2016   ABSTRACTPortable theatrical set for María Jerez The Glammatics are posed on a golden reflective surface onstage, accompanying Alma de Rimel and deploys this in its ‘spikey’ forms and its surfaces of mirror, velvet, leopard, fake marble, fluorescent tube, red leather, plastic, glitter, golden lacquer, air and pink steel. The commission arose in 2015 after the invitation of the Commissioner and Art Critic Iván López Munuera, for the 'The Dark Side of the Party' inauguration, within the festival C+Arquitectos. Since then, The Glammatics has been touring with 'Alma the Rimel’ in their concerts. For more information about , see: http://almaderimel.com/    PROYECTO1. Unmentionable. The idea of the piece is to activate a concert from unknown. The Glammatics absorb 'Alma the Rimel’s’ aesthetics and deploys it in some “difficult to name” elements. 2. Glam. A glam concert is not only listened to, it is also looked at and touched. Glam is, in itself, a synaesthesial proposal. 3. Synaesthesia. Objects that sound, but they do not sound to what they should sound, instruments that do not do what they […]

077 · biombombastic Many houses in one  ABSTRACT* COAM Award 2016. Colegio Oficial de Arquitectos de Madrid, 2016 Complete refurbishment of a flat in the centre of Madrid The purpose of this project is to renew an old flat in the centre of Madrid to turn it into a transformable space. The project hinges around two complementary strategies. Firstly, an open space is configured, and the whole programme is grouped and arranged around an L-shaped band on two sides. This band includes the access to the household, the outer façade windows, a folding bed, the storage space, a complete kitchen, a fold-down auxiliary table, access to the bathroom and the washing machine. It optimises the spatial distribution and compacts all the functions so that everyday activities can benefit from as much space as possible, all the while adapting to the geometry of the apartment. Secondly, a fitted screen on one of the sides can be deployed from the wall to create different domestic arrangements, by closing the bedroom, the kitchen or dividing the house into two. Wooden rails serve to construct the whole. They are the attachment points for the screen and establish the lighting of the spaces. The screen […]
