Often each window has a frame. This frame is an opportunity to communicate between in and out. In... More

The Student Services Building at Cal Poly Pomona

CO Architects designed the 140,000-square-foot Student Services Building (SSB) as a new gateway to the California State Polytechnic University (Cal Poly) campus in Pomona, roughly 30 miles east of Los Angeles.  As the gateway building, SSB welcomes matriculating students who register for classes and apply for financial aid, prospective students and their families who meet at the site for campus tours, and alumni actively involved in the campus community.  CO Architects topped the SSB with an undulating, standing-seam aluminum roof that spans over two separate structures.  The shape and orientation of this distinguishing feature is driven purely by performance and function with the aims to optimize energy management, maximize...

Speehuis

The SPEEHUIS is a home and office for SPEE architects. The design allows the house to blend into the surrounding forest, thanks to its natural appearance and the use of natural materials. As well as this, the house and office are energy-neutral and innovatively built with circular and bio-based materials. Not only the façade of the SPEEHUIS, but the sloping roof is also finished with Bamboo X-treme beams, installed on a Grad system making the installation hidden and demountable.   Circular and bio basedThe decision to build with bamboo beams mounted on the Grad installation system is fully in line with the principles of the SPEEHUIS: energy-neutral building using circular and bio-based materials. Bamboo X-treme consists of mor... More

New Financial Center and Headquarters BCC-CAJAMAR

Without a doubt, the privileged situation of the new headquarters will allow the future building to be the best showcase of the objectives and values of the Banco de Crédito Social Cooperativo (BCC).    The offices adapt to the ground, fragmented into different volumes, using a strategy similar to that used by “The Alcazaba”, to dominate the city from the hill of San Cristobal.    The New Headquarters must also serve to introduce an architectural reference in the  Science and Technology Park as a whole, which is a great idea at the urban level, but which nevertheless poses an added difficulty when conceiving the building, which will be private of any close reference, or positive urban data to...

Banco Popular Luca de Tena

Two years after starting the Project for the Calle Abelias (stage I) we were commissioned to develop a proposal designed for a different financial situation, to execute the building in Calle Luca de Tena.   This 40,000 m2 office program also had to act as the bank’s representative headquarters, and contain the spaces dedicated to chairmanship and board of administration. The world economic crisis made it necessary to rethink various aspects: resource- and cost-effective optimizing per square meter and employee.   It is obvious that the easiest way of reducing costs in buildings is to separate the light from the perimeter by increasing the floorage. The less façade per square meter, the cheaper the building. The b... More

Zucchetti Office Tower

The project envisages the re-adaptation of the spaces for a new utilization as offices. From a compositional point of view the project is represented by a huge transparent facade sheathed in an external metallic shielding structure, designed in accordance with the protective requirements dictated by the various situations of exposure to the sun. The sustainability of the project idea is driven by a combined strategy of energy conservation and attention to the well-being of the users. In particular passive solutions have been adopted, such as, high thermal heat insulation, natural ventilation activated by a solar chimney, utilization of renewable energy, solar protection, diffusion of green areas inside and outside the building. The architec... More

FK-L 1/16 / Ventilated Facade Elements

FK system, horizontal joint panel facade. Vertical open and horizontal overlapping joints system. When installing it, we will constantly check weights and levels. We fix the brackets to the structure with a mechanical anchor, and to the wall using a chemical anchor. The anchors will be the most suitable according to the quality of the wall. We fix the vertical profile to the brackets with steel rivets, so it allows the dilation of the aluminium. To do this, we rivet a fixed point above and the following with mobile points. This pattern is used to place the entire horizontal profile. If, for example, we start right to left, we would fix the first on the right and the following would be mobile. We will always follow this guideline throughout... More
