Emerging from a cliff, the Marcel House, located in the town of Palafrugell, in Girona, is divided into 3 levels that focus your gaze on the sea, as if it were a theater perched on the horizon. The combination of noble materials such as stone, wood and large windows, compose a unique setting from where you can appreciate the beauty of the Costa Brava. Inside, the orography materializes in a central cave that runs through the house connecting its rooms.

The Marcel house is the ideal combination of architecture and immersion in the landscape. The large concrete slabs follow the topographic lines of the hill on wich the site is located, thus defining the outline of the house and articulating its composition.

Cabana believe that architecture gives us the chance to transform our world, bringing a twist to traditional ways of doing.

All of our spaces are designed prioritizing the Customer Journey in order to satisfy their needs and expectations.

“We are radical in our rigorousness.”

We propose the dispersion of the content of the commercial space in a point cloud. It starts with posed event-particles. With this organization we assign value to the space between them that allows total openness to the context, both physically and conceptually.

Experiential connections are generated between particles. This allows free and unlimited growth of the proposed concept system beyond its physical and conceptual limit.

Finally, each event-particle is cataloged in the parameters of scale, use, impact, landscape, among others. We propose a radically diverse map of uses to generate a rich and genuine metabolism.

Included in the Catalogue of Protected Assets and Spaces of Villarreal and built at the beginning of the 20th century, the intervention of the Gran Casino & Tagoba Theatre consisted on a renovation where both buildings are respected. In addition, a new prism of connection and contribution of light is included, giving value to the connection between both elements.

In this building, this new piece materialises itself on a staircase, symbol of everyday life and become the totemic image that allow the entrance of physical and conceptual light to the building in the form of a prism, which manages to organize the circulations around it.

This projet provide a place where the development of culture has a place.

The staircases are the symbol of everyday life and therefore can become the totemic image of the exhaustion of life, of fainting and even of surrender.

Stairs exhaust, and that exhaustion can be transferred to the psychic, transforming those who go up down them.

Rosaleda’s intervention aims to generate an exciting and experiential destination, including leisure, fun, operational reorganisation and aesthetic order. Some of the tools employed in the centre include collaborations with the IES La Rosaleda or the use of art as a social tool. Collaboration is the main element that articulates the project, the neighbours become co-authors of the work and feel capable and proud of improving the conditions of their environment, strengthening the feeling of community.

In short, C.C. Rosaleda is repretended by the diagram here showed, where the same circle is drawn in multiple ways but maintaining the same essence. Rosaleda maintains its values, but applying different aesthetics that turn the centre into a great experience for the user.

The hedge is high enough to interrupt the horizon. Thanks to it the house becomes invisible and its interior becomes a designated, specific and unrepeatable place.The rectangle, like the old palisades, marks a better inside and outside than the very construction of its interior does.

The house proposes a timeless, calm and stereotomic design, which has, in the main staircase, one of its main allies in the spatial organization of housing.

ALL WE WANT TO PLAY

“People's maturity is to have regained the seriousness that he had as a child at play.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

The more opportunities a child has to enjoy the rich- ness and carefree fantasy of the game, the more solid it´s development will be. Because the game in child- hood is much more than enjoyment or fun. It is a bridge to reality, a means to solve problems, a source of identifications and an excellent training for life.

We imagine and bring to reality artistic playgrounds, sparking the imagination of kids and adults alike. We focus on artistic quality, inspiring kids to move.
