bio


A group of architects working and exploring through architectural fields since 2015.

We are interested in new ways of approaching our environments and contexts. We take into account the relationships that generate them, from the individual to society, and we focused on the understanding of architecture and urbanism as a piece of an interconnected puzzle.

Always working in-between fields, from urbanism to communication, from industrial design to art, from digital to pure analogic, we look for ways to expand our knowledge and understanding of our surroundings.

MADRID

REY

HOUSING, 2018



This project arises as a result of the exhaustive analysis of a small plot in the center of Madrid, in the Vallecas district.

This plot had been abandoned for dozens of years due to its complicated geometry, that made it almost impossible to build on it in compliance with the parking regulations.

After several designs and the use of curved geometries on the ground floor as well as a rotating platform that allows vehicles to enter and exit frontally, the project is accepted and the execution project is carried out.

The main facade is set back to expand the street space, and allows a more fluid circulation inviting pedestrians to enter without disturbing the outside circulation.

It is sought from the simplicity of the materials and fleeing from the ornaments, the contrast with the traditional existing buildings. The project shows how, through architecture and design, it is possible to take advantage of abandoned lands in the centers of large capital cities, collaborating in their densification and reactivation.
