DESIGNER: Fran Silvestre Architects
This project creates three spaces which are physically disconnected and connected by the same essence:
In first place, materiality and the use of an innovated tradition highlight the natural stone.
In second place, the combination of texture and light; the three types of finishes (polished, sandblasted and brush hammered) reveal a range of ten different textures, creating a contrasts proposal that is still uniform. Natural light colours are reflected in the parameters. Artificial light is used by reducing the stone so it can be backlit. The evening lighting unveils warm, almost golden, colours.
Finally, precision in the detail; we must not forget that architecture can be successful with small details.
All of this provides spatial continuity with the use of few materials, the integration of facilities, the lighting, persistence and by appreciating architecture which is able to penetrate though these factors without becoming obsolete. These are just the common features of the works carried out by this firm.
