094 · mad + Exploring Madrid of 'Earthly delights’ Urban strategy for the Veranos de la Villa 2016   ABSTRACTUrban strategy for the Veranos de la Villa 2016 Mad + (‘Madrid of earthly delights’) is a strategic project to deploy the programme of the Veranos de la Villa (VdV) festival throughout the urban fabric of Madrid. 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 2016. 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 de Vallecas, Moratalaz, Ciudad Lineal, Hortaleza, Villaverde, Villa de Vallecas, Vicálvaro, San Blas  – Canillejas and Barajas districts, to pinpoint […]

016 · pool house From regulatory aesthetics to domestic experience ABSTRACTSingle-family home in Barajas, Madrid, Spain The project is located in the old part of the town of Barajas, in a small 4x8 m plot that shares median walls with two houses on the sides and that has a structure inside it. The main façade has a northwest heading. The project involves the demolition of a shed and its replacement with a new single-family house. The surface area of the plot is so small that it was all occupied. Regulations establish that openings can only be created on the front façade, so the living quarters were located there, thus guaranteeing ventilation, sunlight and a view to the street. The non-living areas and the staircase were placed at the rear. The basic project includes a living room with a fitted kitchen on the ground floor; a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a dressing room on the first floor; a toilet in the staircase landing; and a second bedroom in the loft, with access to a terrace. The offset sections allow the installation of a 2 m2 and 1.55 m deep swimming pool on the terrace. This pool provides natural lighting […]

005 · STAND COAM Air Quality Policies   ABSTRACTStand for the College of Architects of Madrid (COAM), Construtec Fair 04 *First Prize. Competition, 2004. Completed *FAD Opinion Award. 2005 *Award of the Official College of Architects of Madrid “A la Obra bien hecha”. 2006 In 2004, the Official College of Architects of Madrid (COAM) issued a tender for the design of its stand for the Construtec ‘04 business fair. The presence of COAM in this sort of business fairs is merely representative, as, given its nature as a Professional College or Association, it does not sell construction products, dealing only in information. Elii’s winning bid designed a room that served as a meeting point for architects. The stand was defined as an inside space, a drawing room to receive visits, a room presenting visitors with the best Architecture has to offer: a spatial experience. The Project makes the most of the pavilion’s artificial lighting and defines its space by means of a play on lights. The stand is made up of a single element, artificial light: the space is developed between two fibre optic surfaces which absorb the functions and adapt to the program required by the institution, creating a […]
