House in the centre of Seville

My parents house, where I call home for now...



























I have never shared with you one of the things I feel more proud of... The house where I grew up. It is an ancient "patio de vecinos" (traditional secvillian communal house) that my dad restored and refurbished to became an unfamiliar house with four floors. Little by little, both my dad and my mum have decorated it with a balanced combination of modern and vintage pieces of furniture. Looking back and now visiting my parents house with perspective one can understand why I became an architect and designer... Who would not?

Nunca he compartido en el blog algo de lo que me siento muy orgulloso: la casa donde me crié. Un antiguo patio de vecinos Sevillano, reformado por mi padre hasta convertirlo en la vivienda Unifamiliar donde viví desde los 4 años. Poco a poco mis padres la han ido decorado con una combinación perfecta de muebles modernistas y antigüedades. No es de extrañar que uno terminara siendo arquitecto y diseñador... Y quien no?

Muros de Luz











by Aitor Ortiz

The architecture removes the stone roughly from its nature condition, transforming and transferring it to a new material and constructive order dominated by an abstract thought, showing the beauty of the unity between both stone conditions, natural and artificial.

Industrial Design from the A to the Z >>> Mm

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe



When I was studying architecture I do not why but I forced myself to choose between "team" Le Corbusier or "team" Van der Rohe. As if some who likes french cheese can't drink German beer. Now that I am looking back I was impressed by the simplicity and beauty of Mies architecture and design. It was an obvious choice as still as my tutors kept saying to me that Le Corbu was the master of modern architecture I was not mature enough as a designer to realize that. 





However Mies was equally brilliant as an architect and as a designer. He created timeless pieces which relates with his clean and modernist concept in design. Using steel as the base for his designs and taking the advantages of the material, he knew how to work with them to create beautiful pieces.

OostCampus










En 2008 la agencia de arquitectura del gobierno holandés (Vlaams Bouwmeester) anunció una competencia internacional que buscaba ideas para la construcción del Campus de Oost, bajo el slogan que parafraseaba a Magritte: “Ceci n’est pas … en Administratief centrum”.

El proyecto ganador, del estudio dirigido por Carlos Arroyo en Madrid, optó por un radical re-uso del gran edificio industrial existente, incluidas las fundaciones, pisos, estructuras de soporte, la piel exterior, aislamiento, impermeabilización, y todos los servicios y equipos recuperables: central de poder y calefacción, tuberías de agua, mangueras contra incendios, alcantarillado e, incluso, zonas de aparcamiento, el vallado y el acceso.

Para transformar la vasta sala industrial – con un tamaño mínimo pero con una máxima espacialidad- se diseñó un espacio público protegido interiormente, envuelto en un “paisaje luminoso de nubes blancas” hechas de finas cáscaras de GRG (yeso y fibra) para cubrir el gran espacio interior.
