Residential Jerez de la Frontera

Mediterranean house in old bodegaThe Andalusian architects Iniesta Nowell Architectos have converted a former bodega in Jerez de la Frontera into an airy, Mediterranean townhouse. Due to the favourable climatic conditions and the interior spaces protected by walls, it was possible to dispense with highly insulating glazing for the large windows and double doors. Iniesta Nowell Architectos found the most suitable system with the Jansen Art'15 steel profile. © Rafael Iniesta Nowell © Rafael Iniesta Nowell © Rafael Iniesta Nowell More

Project • By URLO StudioApartments


When URLO arrived at the apartment on Quart Street for the first time, they found themselves in an inhospitable, dark, and poorly compartmentalized space. The existing windows were tiny in proportion to the façade and the interior spaces. The complex geometry of its enclosure, organized in diagonal planes, and of its irregular structure, presented a major challenge in creating a comfortable and habitable space. In order to bring in light and a coherent structure to the apartment, URLO began by proposing a large diaphanous and well-lit space in the central area of the apartment which would house the living room, dining room, and kitchen.  The exposed concrete structure helped them to separate the kitchen and dining area from th...

La Coquina cerveceria

This Spanish cuisine restaurant serves shellfish dishes as main menu. It is located on the upper floor of a newly built commercial building in the middle of Shibuya, one of the representative cities in Japan.  The design identity of this restaurant comes from the “Shellfish”. From this inspiration, we converted this image to the materials, patterns and forms. What is more, by enhancing the details of the Cataluña culture in Spain, which is deeply related to the sea, we have generated an extraordinary atmosphere, so- called the trinity of “Shellfish”, “Spain” and the “Sea”.  From the keyword “Shellfish”, no two shellfish here are alike and by focusing on how they look w...
