La construcción de un nuevo pabellón de tapia es la excusa para transformar un antiguo espacio trasero del Camping Alfacs y abrazar—junto a dos edificaciones rehabilitadas—un nuevo jardín mediterráneo. Así, el proyecto consiste en tres pabellones alrededor de un patio. Un jardín habitado por comunidades vegetales autóctonas, plantas aromáticas y de baja demanda hídrica, que aparece como umbral de transición para acceder a espacios de baño y servicio. Frente al derribo y tabula rasa habitual, el proyecto reconoce el valor material y cultural de las dos edificaciones auxiliares antiguas, les da la vuelta y celebra sus tipologías y acabados constructivos prosaicos.

Three sisters in the Mediterranean:
The project enhances—aiming to exaggerate—the ‘courtyard-house’ character of a summer residence from the sixties in the Mediterranean coast of Spain. A house that three sisters in their thirties have decided to share as a summer home. This renovated holiday house is a deliberately ambiguous habitat, between inside and outside, openly diverse, as wide and sunny as intimate and shady; offering coves, topographies, loggias and gardens, in a spatial continuum that intends to provide a landscape of vitality and delight.

Located by the “Alfaques” Bay, the exterior spaces of an historical rural construction (called Masía) had been reduced to residual interstices in-between autonomous pieces for touristic use: a few tennis courts, the terrace of a restaurant, a pool and a solarium. These were the result of modest works of renovation accumulated overtime following the sporadic needs of a modestly run management. Continue reading Bajet Giramé . JAAS

The project consists of remaking a home in a 1970’s apartment in Barcelona. The former spaces were based on program requirements resulting in a series of small rooms and corridors with predefined functions. Those spaces were shaped by non-load bearing walls given its ‘properly modern‘ free plan.
However, columns, beams and slabs were concealed within the internal partitions as shameful bones. The aim of the project was to make the apartment again (remake it), with significant setting and character changes. This would be achieved two-fold: by unveiling the hidden qualities of the 70’s architecture and by defining a new series of suggestive settings. Continue reading Bajet Giramé
