Victor and Raquel needed their new house to become a large and flexible home with light and fluid space as protagonists. In the integral refurbishment of this house, located in a neighbourhood of Madrid, two strategies have been combined to generate a fluid and flexible space: the creation of a central service core and the separation of the house into two areas, a public and a private one.

Genteng House / SASO Architecture Studio

October 20, 2019 Daniel Tapia 0

This 70 m² house is located in Bekasi, West Java, about 40 minutes drive from Halim Perdanakusuma Airport, Jakarta. Surrounded by high-density houses with 6-meter wide street at the east & south of the site. The basic thinking behind Genteng House is as simple as the love for mother nature. Genteng House stands on the site where an old house stood for years. The old house was abandoned, for most of its materials were badly broken, a slight renovation couldn’t simply help. No matter how bad, we couldn’t help but thinking that it is impossible for us to donate such amount of waste to our mother earth.

Pombal Castle’s Visitor Centre / COMOCO

October 19, 2019 Cristian Aguilar 0

The castle of the Portuguese city of Pombal testifies to the power of time as the main contributor for the transformation of the built environment. The top of a hill overlooking the valley of the Arunca river has been occupied since the time of the Roman empire, and since then performed multiple roles and configured very many spatial and social practices. From a small provincial community, it evolved to a vital defensive structure in a territorial network of military apparatus, and eventually became a touristic destination and an identifying device for the region. After designing the reorganization of Pombal castle’s hill, comoco arquitectos were commissioned the design of a visitor centre for the castle’s ward, including the landscaping of the area and the revitalization of the amenities already installed in the Torre de Menagem (the castle’s keep).
