WALKING #MAD

walking madrid

En Madrid, jamás llegué a pisar la calle, porque cada vez que aparecía en la puerta del Hotel Ritz, una legión de caballeros arrojaban sus capas al suelo para que caminara sobre ellas, poniendo ante mí una alfombra que nunca se acababa.

It was not me, it was #MATA HARI who said that.  I walked a lot in the streets of Madrid. It’s incredible. Do it when you can.

MEZQUITA #COR

a cathedral in the mosque.

A unique place, the mosque of Cordoba has never closed in the last twelve centuries, since the 9th century, here have prayed before muslims and then christians. Its transformation has given life to an exceptional architectural space.

CASA#D

CASA #D. It’s another interior space designed for Venetian Gold.

It’s a new way contry house. Pure and essential. Here we show you two spaces: the main bathroom and the airy kitchen.

The first space is elemental: a nero marquinia marble floor contrasting with the bath and the sinks in statuario marble. It’s fundamental the role played by the large mirror that expands the space and donates double depth and brightness.

In the kitchen we gave a country touch leaving the original wood beams and doing the cupboards with a similar old dark wood. These warm parts are contrasting the metal fridge and marbles of the floor – in calacatta caldia marble – and the kitchen top – in avalance marble.

PARK GÜELL #BCN

El gran libro, siempre abierto y que tenemos que hacer un esfuerzo para leer, es el de la Naturaleza, y los otros libros se toman a partir de él, y en ellos se encuentran los errores y malas interpretaciones de los hombres.

The great book, always open and we have to make an effort to read, is that of Nature, and other books are taken from him, and in them there are the errors and misinterpretations of men.

WHEN YOU HAVE A LOFT IN NEW YORK CITY…

interiors project

LOFT #C. It’s an interior design space designed for Venetian Gold.

The living and the dining space are furnished with some incredible and romantic fifty and sixty objects.

For the floors, we used white macaubas marble. In particular, for the living we bet on a central emperador dark marble line that captures the heart of this space, the fireplace. The central round table of the dining room is in bardiglio nuvolato marble, an intense tone contrasting with the light of the floor.

MIRANDOLA’S PUBLIC LIBRARY

That’s the second part of the post-earthquake reconstruction proyect for Mirandola.

In these images you can see some suggestions of the interior spaces of the new public library,  which arises in the ancient church of San Francesco. Now we have a new space on three levels: free museum space on the ground floor and library on the first and second floor.

For the project of the library, as we did for the theater (which is discussed in the anterior post), we used wood combined with an interlocking construction system, which gives anti-seismic properties to the entire structure (the new part and the original one).
