Café de la Reina

Connected to the foyer of an elegant luxury hotel, the Café de la Reina or “BUR-BU-JA-JA” adds a colorful and casual note to the complex. A cafeteria during the day, the space transforms into a sophisticated cocktail bar at night, the patrons immersed in iridescent aquatic colors.

A long curved green bar runs through the space, while “seaweed” camouflages the curtain wall and the mundane view of the city beyond, dissolving it into small fragments of an organic, aquatic world. Smoothly curved walls with reflecting belts, circular benches and round tables create a sensual atmosphere where space and movement interact.

Espacio Fundación Telefónica

This museum project for Fundación Telefónica, the cultural institution of Spain’s largest telephone company, occupies four floors in the historic Telefónica Building at the top of Madrid’s most central street, the Gran Via. To address the difficult relationships between the reclaimed spaces of the old building, we designed a central, cohesive circulation path that connects all galleries and cultural spaces on the upper floors to one another and to the street. 

Parts of five of the existing floor plates were demolished and a spiral staircase inserted in the void, weaving through an organic, sculptural form which serves simultaneously as a lateral brace for the building’s façade and structural support for the stair. 

The galleries take their form from the shape of the building. Here, the floors were stripped of everything non-essential to the structure. Columns were left exposed and the ceilings covered with a suspended metal mesh. The spaces, left bare, reveal the beauty of the existing structure and allow for the maximum freedom for exhibit-specific installations.

Columbia University Northwest Corner Building

Columbia University, one of the world most prestigious institutions for arts and sciences, greatly expands its capabilities with this building for interdisciplinary scientific research.  The building is located on the Northwest corner of the University’s historic Morningside Heights Campus designed by McKim, Mead and White in 1897.  It adds approximately 4.500 m2 of laboratory space and 2.000 m2 of classroom, office and study space. It also includes a 1.300 m2 research library, a 170-seat auditorium, a public café and a new entrance to the Campus and the University’s Basketball and Volleyball Gymnasium. 

Constructed above the existing Francis S. Levien Gymnasium, the site conditions posed a significant structural challenge requiring that the new building span over the 125 foot wide facility, while maintaining large open floors for laboratories, whose structural slabs needed to be stiff enough for the use of microscopes and other vibration-sensitive equipment.

This structural feat became the defining gesture of the project. By representing the structural frame on the building façade through the application of aluminum fins oriented in parallel to the frame elements, the design reveals the varied geometry of bracing elements in the resultant patchwork of light and shadow.  Even as it appears to incorporate a free arrangement of diagonal truss elements, the structural frame is in fact precisely responsive to a series of eccentric loading factors integral to the design of the building volume and to the internal distribution of programmatic elements within it. The building's campus facade is almost entirely glass, revealing the interior workings of the building and emphasizing openness and a connection to the campus community.

Besides providing critical program spaces for the University, the building also forms a new gateway to the Morningside Campus, incorporating in its northern end a fluid sequence of brightly and naturally-lit spaces along a path between the street corner and the Campus level some 10 meters higher.  All this is fit alongside elevator cores and service shafts within a constrained footprint in the building area not already occupied by the gymnasium.

Articulare Chimney

Geometry has always fascinated us. When the main body of the chimney and an inclined plane intersect, a second volume is created that opens, folding down to create the horizontal surface of the grill. The chimney’s oval mouth is exposed so that the fire is visible from every angle. The shape of the chimney is compact; it can be closed when the winter season is over, on the one hand staying out of the way while on the other presenting an enigmatic form bereft of signs as to its true function.
