The second edition of the monograph of our studio, Scenaries for Life, edited by TC Cuadernos, is now available after the first one is sold out.
The monograph compiles in 224 pages the most significant works made by our studio from its foundation until 2018.
The main works such the House of the cliff, the Balint House or the House between the pine forest, developed with plans for the first time in this volume. The interior design, the rehabilitation and the big scale works are also included.
The house located in a privileged environment, arises from its implementation in the place. A plot with a steep slope that descends to the east and main views that open out to the south.
With this starting point the house is deposited in the upper level, supported by a single element arranged perpendicularly to the mountain.

The project consists in the construction of the headquarters for Mondraker, a company dedicated to the manufacture of competition mountain bikes. Located in an industrial park and surrounded by orthogonal edification, the building seeks to break away from the adjacent geometry and encloses itself, with a circular plan hollowed out by a central courtyard. Two vaults pierce the geometry allowing the access to the building, and creating a sort of central atrium which can be used, due to its form, to generate events and exhibitions. This geometry separates the building from its surrounding, reinforcing the corporative identity of the company and improving the quality of the open space in the plot.
