The pharmacy is located on a traffic artery in the city, with a captive local public in the area behind. The façade is designed as a large retro-illuminated signpost saying “FARMACIA”, made with glass blocks. Illumination during the day and night is carefully controlled.
Design and construction of a 5 star hotel, clubhouse for adjacent golf course, large spa centre, refurbishment of singular palace building, gardens and outdoor swimming pools.
The promotor of this project in Moratalla wanted an alternative to the standard American style housing projects promoted by the Moratalla Urban Plan. Moratalla is a beautiful mountainous territory in the NW of the Murcia Region. We proposed a project for an EcoHotel experience with very little visual impact on the territory, with extremely low water use, low energy use throughout the building life cycle using local materials, solar energy production, respect for local flora and fauna, and new methods for streets and paths that have minimal impact on the existing ground.
This project is currently in the developed design stage.
This building was completed in 2016, a 2,750 square metre office building in Nigeria´s capital, Lagos. The building is set out over 2 storeys, measures 75 metres by 18.5 metres, and was custom-built by Red Sea Housing in Ghana, and then shipped to Lagos in twenty shipping containers. Ancillary buildings were constructed using more traditional local building methods. Furniture was designed and made to measure, using CNC technology in Lagos. Total contract value was over 6 million USD.
Complete rehabilitation of an old building in Murcia.
The supporting structure of load-bearing walls has been maintained in order to preserve the interior space, keeping the distances between slabs of about 4.5 meters.
The homes of the first and second floors have been replaced by professional offices, while those in the third floor were completely renovated using the space below the new zinc roof to get two luxury duplex apartments with terrace.
This is a sketch design for an office building on a site with very particular volumetric rules. The design is made up of a number of coloured stripes allowing maximum use of available volume.
