Valorsul Showers / STUDIO_LPP

July 10, 2020 Pilar Caballero 0

The location for this operation was on a long, flat strip of land, on the edge of the manufacturing complex, Valorsul – a waste treatment company in the metropolitan area of Lisbon – located in the industrial belt of Lisbon, along the north bank of the Tagus River. This building was compared with others already constructed (main factory building and incinerator) with very different and very affirmative architectural languages. Thus, building a sober piece, which did not rival the existing one, seemed to be the path to the project.

This home is for a large beautiful family with its own unique history. It is located in a block of detached houses but bordered on one side by a forest from which occasionally deer comes. We made sure they were always noticeable through wide windows.

Stepping on 120 years of history is always risky. Age and tradition can cover everything under its weight and make change and improvement impossible. However, the common alternative of erasing all that memory and starting from scratch seemed disrespectful.

The 40,000 m2 facility will serve as a new campus for about 3,600 students at Otemon Gakuin University, or about half the student population. As Internet technology, artificial intelligence, and mobility improve and students no longer need to be on campus to attend school, what form will universities take?

Smooth Wall House / suzuki architects

July 8, 2020 Pilar Caballero 0

For this condominium renovation, the client requested an open and bright space to use as a second home, studio, and gallery. We faced two design problems. First, due to the long, narrow layout that emphasized efficient use of space, the entryway was dark. Second, the windows could not be modified because they are considered shared property belonging to the building as a whole, which made creating an open-feeling space difficult.
