The project talks about setting limits and their permeability.The first border is established between the street and the free space of the house, in Burriana, as in many municipalities the regulations establish a maximum dimension for the opaque fence and the rest of the height with a permeable materiality. We decided, perhaps influenced by the gate that Andreu Alfaro together with Emilio Giménez designed both in the house and in the sculptor’s studio, to make this border as an opaque filter for the views and penetrable for light and air, with a constant materiality in full height. This fine line built with aluminum profiles, which are arranged at an angle that prevents the view from the outside, draws a patio with almost the entire available surface

This week has been at the MArch Architecture and Deisign school, the workshop with Fran Silvestre Thinking by doing. We have been worked on the way of approaching the conception of a project. The initial phase of the architectural project is one of the most complex parts to undertake because of its level of abstraction, and it is also one of the most important of its development.
Each project is understood as a personal challenge with different variables (scale, conditioners, customers, use …) that determine the result of the work. At this point, it is necessary to know and use an effective working method.
Next Saturday October 23, a new edition of Open House Valencia 2021 will take place, an event that gives people the opportunity to get to know places related to Architecture and Design that are not usually open to visit.
On this occasion and again from the Espai Alfaro, we will participate by taking a tour of our studio, a NIU house located in the space, the Andreu Alfaro sculpture collection and the facilities where the postgraduate and Master programs in Architecture and Design MArch are developed. There will be two visits, at 12:00 and at 18:00, to sign up visit the official OHV website. We wait for you!
The idea of this new project in Tarifa arises from the close vision of the environment. A longitudinal volume that is deposited on a platform materialized as a terrace and pool, merging with the sea.
The project, which is in the planning and foundation phase, is located opposite is located in front of the Sotogrande’s golf course, the house proposes to inhabit the shade generated between the ground floor plan and the roof. A large cantilever allows to stop the intense sun of Cádiz and to protect from the abundant rains of the area of the Sierra de Grazalema.

The project for a clinic in Belgrade seeks to create different atmospheres with the minimum number of elements, in this case, uniform and changing light surfaces that are arranged in some of the surfaces that shape the spaces.
In this series of houses the starting point is a combination of extruded spaces in which the open parts are the ones that are glazed. A way of proceeding investigated in some works by Jacobsen or Souto de Moura. The work process begins with the use of aluminum profiles to make the models, a system that generates an infinite number of combinations. This work produces a kind of chalk laboratory where the limits are very clear.
The magazine for luxury lovers, Fuera de Serie from the Expansión group, has interviewed Fran Silvestre about the architecture and design of the studio’s projects in its latest printed edition, La gran primavera.
The project, which consists of two twin houses that open onto the Sarasota Bay, seeks views of the landscape through two cantilevers that extend over the volume of its ground floors: one in the longitudinal direction and the other in the transverse direction. One of the closest references of the project is the movement of modern architecture that was generated in the mid-20th century in the area known as Sarasota School of Architecture or Sarasota Modern.

The WELL standard, based on 6 years of medical-scientific research, is the most widespread and prestigious international health and well-being standard in architecture.
