Casas Loiola | Ramos Bilbao arquitectos

Casas Loiola, a residential project designed by Ramos Bilbao Arquitectos, ends up talking about the moldability of concrete to generate spaces at will, and talks about drilling and extruding, all at the same time and all this on a robust, hard, stony material, which guarantees eternal properties. This work is, therefore, the result of volumetric experimentation using this medium to solve existing problems of habitability and comfort in the plots of this area, an area as beautiful as it is exploited urbanistically.

Orvay | Isern Serra

Orvay, designed by Isern Serra, is a place to taste wines, where the whole space has been created from color to suggest three different ways to discover the great typology of wines that his cellar hides. The team liked the chromatic relationship that was generated between the three spaces so no element separates them visually, only the forcefulness of the own color in the different materials marks this separation. The lighting very important in the room for its double life, had to work both day and night, seeks the corporeality of this element as ethereal as light.

JINS NAMBA PARKS | KOMPAS

Jins Namba Parks, designed by KOMPAS, is a store interior design for well-known eyewear brand JINS located in the Namba Parks shopping mall, Osaka.

JINS as an innovative eyewear brand and 3. Eyewear as a mono-sized small product. The round-shaped furniture frees up the perimeter enabling it to have increased display capacity while at the same time providing wider circulation spaces.

The concrete forms both anchor and frame elements, whilst also defying convention through a floating cantilevered projection.

Casa MF | Spaceworkers

Casa MF, designed by Spaceworkers, adapted the client’s wishes, whose main premise was that the house should be built in an “L” shape. Developing an original identity and finding an answer to this request, was the main inspiration for the approach adopted in an almost imperceptible way. The program of the house is distributed over a series of consecutive volumes, as in a game of embedded pieces, almost playful. Each of the volumes presents different functions, heights and depths creating a unique spatial dynamic, and emphasizing a new reading of an “L” shaped house.
