Casa Sabater, cover of the IW Magazine

Casa Sabater, cover of the IW Magazine

13/05/2024

Our project Casa Sabater has been selected to appear on the cover of IW magazine in its 156th edition corresponding to the month of May.

Inside we find a complete coverage of the project, with photographies of the prestigious Portuguese photographer Fernando Guerra and with graphic documentation to contextualize the description and the images.

The house establishes a continuous dialogue with the exterior through four architectural elements that descend, adapting to the slope of the land and preserving the existing vegetation. Its design defines three distinct areas: a portico-like access, private areas facing the slope and spaces open to the landscape. Each volume frames different parts of the environment, creating a sequence of landscapes that merge with the vegetation, offering uninterrupted views of the surrounding forest and the sea from every room.

IW magazine reports on the aesthetics of living space and design trends in order to offer a refined lifestyle. It publishes articles about humanity, architecture, interior design, industrial design and contemporary art, editing all its content with a broad and detailed perspective. The way it makes pleasant reading and attractive images, along with its function of connecting business resources with professionals, has made it an international reference.

Shooting new project in Sotogrande

Shooting new project in Sotogrande

06/05/2024

Recently we have done a photo and video session in one of our latest built projects, Casa en Sotogrande.

For this, we have worked with renowned photographer Fernando Guerra and filmmaker Jesús Orrico, who have been in charge of documenting the essence of the design.

Located in front of the Sotogrande golf course, the house proposes to inhabit the shadow between the ground plane and the roof. A generous overhang allows to stop the intense sun of Cadiz and cover from the heavy rains of the area produced by the Sierra de Grazalema.

The structural effort allows to open the space directly to the landscape without interruptions. Access is from the upper street. From this point the water cover is observed in an attempt to blur the architecture to blend it into the natural environment.

The roof planes and the zero elevation are displaced to generate a covered access and an endless pool over the golf course. The ultimate goal is to minimize the impact on the environment, allowing the enjoyment of an inhabited shade in Sotogrande.

Fran Silvestre Arquitectos, architecture firm with more audience in social media | Economy 3

08/04/2024

In a recent publication, the media Economia3 has highlighted Fran Silvestre Arquitectos for being the architecture firm with the largest audience in social media worldwide.

This phenomenon is not exclusive to architecture, as sectors such as fashion, beauty, tourism and gastronomy have also found in social networks an indispensable channel for their growth and consolidation in the global market. The influence capacity of these digital platforms has proven to be a valuable tool not only to gain visibility, but also to attract new business and strengthen the brand internationally.

The architect Fran Silvestre, distinguished with the title of Doctor Magno

18/03/2024

On April 9, in the chapel of the Beneficencia, will take place the award ceremony of the title of Doctor Magno, which recognizes the academic and professional work of Fran Silvestre.

The recognition of Doctor Magno has been used, historically, to highlight the role of eminent figures in different fields of knowledge, especially and originally, those related to philosophy and theology. Nowadays, the meaning of the honorary doctorate is focused on recognizing an academic or expert who has made significant contributions in their professional field, both in theory and in practice.

The award is granted by the Professional Association of Doctors of the Valencian Community, chaired by Mr. José Francisco Tárrega Andreu and aims to promote, train and disseminate the figure of the Doctor, valuing his performance as a researcher, as a teacher and also as a professional, fields in which Fran Silvestre has excelled with excellence.

Projects analyzed by some of the most renowned architecture critics of the contemporary scene, such as Philip Jodidio or David Cohn, among others, and awarded internationally; a teaching activity distributed among several universities and with a very positive assessment by the students, having been invited to lecture at universities in the United States, Argentina, Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Czech Republic, Poland, Italy and Spain; and numerous articles published in indexed academic journals and other international research publications, have led the Professional Association of Doctors of the Valencian Community to recognize his work as a doctor being the distinguished figure in this 2024.

Interview with Fran Silvestre | Classpaper

Interview with Fran Silvestre | Classpaper

18/03/2024

Recently, we participated in an interview with Classpaper, a magazine recognized for its focus on culture, lifestyle and luxury. In this interview, Fran Silvestre shared the studio’s experiences and thoughts on the creative process behind architectural projects, offering an intimate look at design principles and how each new challenge is approached.

Classpaper magazine focuses on lifestyle, culture, and luxury. It is a quarterly publication designed for a discerning audience with an interest in high quality content in both print and digital versions. Classpaper’s website complements its print edition by offering daily updated content, aimed at those seeking information and news in the luxury and culture field.

According to Classpaper “In architecture, the most important thing is to know how to build. This may seem obvious, if it were not for the fact that it is about building in every sense. Fran Silvestre (Valencia, July 5, 1976) has been applying this doctrine to learn how to create an environment for everyday life that elevates out of the ordinary. Such is his perseverance, that his studio, Fran Silvestre Arquitectos (in Valencia), in less than 20 years has managed to establish itself as a national reference.

In 2012, the Ministry of Culture and Sports chose him as ambassador of Spanish Architecture in the United States with the Spain Arts and Culture program. At the same time, outside Spain he has also managed to stand out: he has been awarded four times by the German Ministry of Economics and Technology and in 2024 with the German Design Award, among many other distinctions. It is even the brand that accumulates the largest global audience on Instagram and Facebook with a total of 4.1 million followers, according to a study by the consulting firm Welov. We spoke with the architect to learn about his way of working and living architecture.”

Selected Delta Awards 2024 | NIU Houses

18/03/2024

NIU Houses and its building system has been selected to be part of the prestigious Delta 2024 Awards, after meticulous deliberation by the Delta 2024 Awards Expert Committee, which evaluated 211 products submitted, thus highlighting the importance and impact of the contribution to the sector.

The Delta Selection, a biennial benchmark in the industrial design landscape, not only recognizes the work of designers and production companies, but also provides an invaluable platform for promotion and public recognition.

The final evaluation will be carried out by an independent and international Jury, composed of renowned professionals such as Raffaella Mangiarotti, Lucas Muñoz Muñoz, Phillipe-Albert Lefebvre and Marisa Santamaría, who will examine the products on May 21, 2024. The winners, who will be announced at the ADI Awards Ceremony on June 13, 2024, will receive a trophy designed by LÚCID Design Agency, symbolizing the triumph of innovation and creativity.

NIU seeks to innovate construction systems to increase precision in the materialization of architecture and is born from the desire to give a global response to the current processes of architecture and construction. Therefore, we have designed a system to execute the manufacture of houses in the most efficient and effective way. Our work process integrates all the necessary phases in the construction of a design house: from the architectural project -including the management with the administration and the coordination of all the agents involved in the construction- to the interior design. The rigorous systematization of all the operations involved in this integral process guarantees the successful materialization of our houses.
