Office building for Dirección General de Patrimonio del Estado

The 2007 proposal for the new Administrative Building for the General Management of Assets of the State of Spain, represented a tribute to the architecture of the building Corrales and Molezún that once was home to the Reader's Digest with which it shares plot, today very upset though preserved in its main aspects. The competition was to design a new building, independent of the previous one, which was able, with the ordinance enforcement, to absorb the remaining buildable site area, only connecting the new with the old building by a vestibular module at the ground floor, without touching or stepping on it. If the Corrales - Molezún project acted on a large plot with a synthetic architecture based on two twinned parallelepipeds of square... More

La Llotja theatre and conference centre

30/August/2016 The mountain with its historic cathedral Seu Vella and the Segre River marks the high point and low point of Lleida (Lerida), the second city of Catolonia, following Barcelona. La Llotja theatre and congress centre sits on the banks of the Segre, somewhat outside the centre of the city. Mecanoo’s design interprets the landscape of Lleida as the exciting scenery before which the building has been placed, somewhat further from the river. The mise-en-scène is elaborated on three levels of scale. Regarded from the large scale of the region, the building forms a link between the river and the mountain. Viewed from the urban scale, La Llotja and the river form a balanced composition. At street level the cantilevers of La Llotja de... More

HELIOS HOTEL. FASE 1

Hotel building dating back from early 70’s and that has been operating 100% ever since its opening day. A first intervention in the main Access as well as in the Hall was needed. This first intervention represents the first step of a long road of different reforms that will end up remodelling the whole hotel. This first intervention is vital since, on the one hand, it will determine the future development of the following reforms, but at the same time, it should function as an independent and autonomous intervention. The intervention is conceived as an free-standing volumen, a White composite coated volumen, in which the limit beetween the covered Main Access (porch) and the Hall are no easy to distinguish. The porch opens it... More

Tenerife School of Scenic Arts

The level of cultural activity in Santa Cruz, the capital of Tenerife, is very high. In 2002 the Tenerife Insular Council and the Canarian government decided to build an educational facility for the scenic arts. The project was placed in the neighbourhood of buildings of related cultural use, such as the Faculty of Fine Arts, the Faculty of Applied Arts, and the Music Conservatory. Soon a Centre of Cinematography will be placed next to the School of Scenic Arts, both institutions designed by gpy arquitectos. The Tenerife School of Scenic Arts has a size of 3360 m2, allowing for 80 resident students, 120 periodical attendants, and 41 teachers.

Hospital Campus de la Salud

There are two major constraints that set the guidelines for the architectural and functional design of the building. We created two large juxtaposed zones in dialogue with each other. First we have the clinical and service areas, organised around a central patio upon which the whole building rests. Secondly, we have the outpatient and hospital areas, which occupy the arms which emerge from it and which open towards the city as well as the imposing views of the Sierra Nevada. It is a model hospital and will constitute the key element in the activities of the new Campus de la Salud de Granada. We have tried to optimise circulation, grouping all the units of each expertise on the same level, distributing the functional area following the heal... More

León Airport

The new airport terminal in Leon, in the Northwest of Spain, is designed to magnify the economic and social “magnetism” of Leon and to give the province means to face the “challenges” of the future. The new terminal for domestic travel has a total ground floor of 4900 m2, where all airport facilities are located. The idea behind the envelope of the building is to enhance the natural feeling of fluidity, both in the process of rapprochement from the land site, and from the experience approaching from the air. A high volume setting with a glass curtain wall and a large longitudinal skylight is designed to give expression to this idea. Inside the building an open-linear solid wood ceiling of Hunter Douglas has been applied. The wooden ceil... More
