Description

The best sunscreen is the shadow.

Make the shadow. Build habitable spaces through light voids. As the architecture of Seville, which inherits the invariants of the andalusi tradition and plays with the shadows, spaces bounded by walls, hidden courtyards and, in them, cordial rumor and the coolness of the water and the garden.

Strategy: create an umbraculum, a volume, energy optimal, that set a perimeter and within it, a garden, a shadow, a microclimate. Then proceeds by subtraction: spaces are excavated... Spaces that open the volume towards the street and offer its shadow, its freshness and its spatial richness to the public areas. Spaces that return the complexity, density and the environmental efficiency of the historical framework of Seville to a degraded urban conglomerate: the building is conceived as a true social catalyst. Spaces that pierce the shadow with a rigorous rythm that builds a continuous and versatile office space but rich spatially, full of luminous hues, energetically comfortable.
