Oficinas en la Calle Serrano

600 m2 de oficinas en la milla de oro de Madrid, Serrano / Goya para una compañía que quiere dar mayor representatividad y visibilidad a su sede.

El programa se divide en el gran despacho de dirección en la esquina que preside la Plaza de Colón, y el resto de oficinas, con una sala abierta para secretarias y despacho en fachada a la calle para contabilidad, abogacía y sala de juntas.

A petición de la propiedad se realiza un estudio acústico, que define las soluciones para asegurar un alto nivel de insonorización y confidencialidad entre salas, y un adecuado control de la reverberación en las zonas de trabajo.

El sistema domótico coordina ventilación, aire acondicionado, luz natural en fachada mediante estores motorizados y luminarias.

Se implanta un sofisticado sistema de iluminación dinámica, que combinando luminarias led simula los ciclos naturales de la luz diurna, creando unas condiciones de luz natural variables que se adaptan al ritmo del cuerpo de los usuarios.

Combinación de madera y blanco en todos los espacios, buscando un ambiente sobrio y a la altura del caracter representativo de las oficinas, en el corazón de negocios de Madrid. Muy a nuestro pesar no estuvimos a cargo del proyecto de mobilario ni de la imagen corporativa, que de haberse coordinado hubiera realzado el interiorismo.

La obra se realiza en 5 meses, con una efectiva gestión de hasta seis equipos de industriales, que permite una ejecución ágil y rápida.

4 flats in Madrid

Today we received the comission to convert an open office plan of 316 sqm in Madrid into four flats. We are happy, it comes as a good start of the year, after some weeks of working with A+M architects on the furniture and equipement for Vil.la Joana. Our proposal is rather straightforward, and we have tried to simplify the distribution in order to make possible a building schedule of two months, the client is very strict with that deadline.

All the service spaces are gathered in a central longitudinal strip, so the sewage and MEP networks have a clear laying to the main drain pipes, clearing the façades for the living spaces.

Ahead of us lays the task of defining the materiality of the interiors, which shall be very minimalistic, with a parquet flooring as a base for the rest of the elements.

Our main challenge here are the deadlines, which are a must. We have three weeks to have the project ready for municipal license and those two months for the actual refurbishing.

Now the Barcelona, Mallorca and Madrid works are at full speed.

The mistery of the flying stair

Incredibly enough, we are still discussing the details of the railing for the stair at the houses in Mallorca. Since the works have been long delayed due to problems with the electric supply we have had  time for philosophy…

Our initial detailing was a simple railing with two horizontal metal tubes, emphasizing the lightness of the stair. Altough regulations for private stairs allow for that in Spain, further consideratations relating safety of users where introduced by the blacksmith, who said, “hey, this ain’t japan”, referring to those floating japanese stairs with almost no railing at all. And it ain’t. Continue reading
