01.01 Execution project _ Villa Smeenk 70F Architecture / 2014 RIBA stage _ 1-5

Abstract:

roof detail

Villa Smeenk is aiming to achieve a better desing through simplicity - simplicity of form, space, materiality, detail and color. The first approach was to create a simple, straightforward, efficient plan layout with stacked volumes of spaces. This creates clarity in plan, where spaces are predictable and uncomplicated. Simple forms, open floor plans, minimal interior walls, modest storage areas, and a emphasis on views and daylight are the starting points of the design. Using a continuous wood facade we can easily provide visual appeal and articulation by expressing the physical characteristics of the material and its texture. An open floor plan between kitchen and living areas lets an abundance of light fill the space. Light colorated wall surfaces, clean modern detailing, uncluttered spaces and a neutral color palette give spaces like this Villa Smeenk interior a calm and interesting appeal. Spacious rooms filled with light, wide sight lines an uncluttered aesthetic were some of the initial requirements.

For more than 20 years, the Harbour Office has been the headquarters of the Marina Muiderzand, the body charged with the operation, maintenance and development of the Port. The property of the building wanted to extend and renew the image of the building. Originally the basement was the space where tools were located and the first floor was occupied by the office. After taking into consideration the future uses of the building the basement was reconverted into the changing room and storage space. The first floor was divided into office space and a small apartment was designed.

facade

Abstract:

ground floor

Traditionally a barn is considered as an agricultural building used for various purposes. The first barns were built in wood meanwhile the modern barns are built in steel. In this project we are recovering the original material of the construction (wood) but the use of the building is not only agricultural. The idea is that the barn can hold not only agricultural uses, it can hold different uses such a restaurant or shop. The idea is that the building can be used for a wide range of people.

The building is desinged in a longitudinal way were all the activities are connected in a visual way. Few constrainst has been taken into consideration in terms of desing : proximity of traffic and daylight. Facing the traffic the facade of the barn is totally close whereas the facade that is facing south has some holes on the roof.

02.01 Competition _ Contest remodeling PKO bank’s headquarters in Warsaw Funkciona Architekci / 2013 RIBA stage _ 1-2

Abstract: In central Warsaw, the PKO Rotunda bravery symbolised many layers of memory on the North-East corner above Dmowskiego roundabout. The new PKO Rotunda embraces the most tragedy of its history. By captivating the area, the sun light angle on Feb 15, 12:37 p.m. An exactly time of the tragedy occurred in 1979. A stratum of light cave down the corner. It leans down responsively to the sun angle. Every year, the sunken plaza is waiting for a moment of the sun ray to bright up the whole place and create a warmest light courtyard to withstand a harsh cold winter memory. The new PKO Rotunda does not only preserves 45 columns in addition with 4 new columns but also gives back a historical meeting point to public realm by relocate the branch underneath the prominent plaza. All those columns are together to represent a group of 49 victims. Each column commemorates each bravery victim with engraved name onto the columns. The column does not only transform the plaza by illuminate the area with ambience bright warm white to guide pedestrians a way but also calmly generates clean energy with micro wind farm to feed the plaza and the building.

02.03 Competition _ Music school in Konin Funkciona Architekci / 2013 RIBA stage _ 1-2

Abstract: Idea and form of the building The design of the building, the whole of the building and the shape of the surrounding terrain is intended to refer to the musical content. The building in its form implies having associations with instruments such as piano, organ, harmony. This is done by introducing dark and light strips, like buttons, on the facades and on the alternating floors. Besides this aesthetic treatment, the form of the building is very simple and disciplined. The shape of elongated rectangular solid was dictated by the dimensions of the building parcel. The building covers one long gable roof, symmetrical, with an angle of 30 degrees. From the main body of the gable roof, there are two rays, covered with a roof of the same pitch, with the frontal projection of the entrance hall and the ceiling with belt glazing, emphasizing the representation of the entrance. The strips are interlaced in white, brick and glazed strips, and in the same style, the footpaths are preserved, where the strings of keyboards are preserved using different colors of the cobblestones - from light gray to black. On the south side, the most representative, from the street, there is a gable wall of the building, behind which is a concert hall. It received a cladding of the so-called. “Old brick�, which refers to the character of the historic buildings of the city. The vertical arrangement of ornamental brickwork is to be associated with organ pipes. Through the use of old materials and forms, the project expresses respect for tradition and culture, whose essence is music.

02.04 Competition for the urban renewal of downtown in Wroclaw Funkciona Architekci / 2012 RIBA stage _ 1-2

Abstract: The modified section of Kazimierz Wielki Street with underground passage is located in the characteristic place of Wroclaw, where the former moat and city walls ran. Today is an important transport route and a crossroads of cultural routes (nearby there are Opera, Puppet Theater, Music Forum, Mediateka). The European Capital of Culture 2016 will also be established in the near future.

cro

Kazimierz Wielki Street is a part of the city center. The decision of the municipal authorities to reduce traffic, to narrow the street and to restore those areas to the people of Wroclaw seems to be right. The recovered space will create a number of opportunities for reactivation of urban life in this zone. The creation of an additional boulevard with a green terrace in the east-west axis will inevitably lead to pedestrians walking in that direction, which currently only follows the north-south axis. The starting point for the development of the concept was the ordering of the existing urban space. The formal and visual treatments were aimed at strengthening the axis of the streets and rebuilding the intimacy of the old boulevards. An integral part of the project is the stop boxes which, by their form and volume, narrow the optically wide span of the WZ route. This allows to recreate the historical urban cross section of the street and is a reference to the pre-war cubic of this place. Introducing greenery to the heart of the city is also a formal-compositional treatment. Extension of the tree trunk on ul. Ĺšwidnicka in the direction of the underground pass allows to level the optically the width of this part of the street with the line of building on the opposite side of the passage. The planting of trees before the planned seat of the ECOC (formerly Baru Barbara) outlines the edges of the new terrace, which, with respect to the previous version, is slightly advanced in order to achieve proportions with the line on the west side of the street. Casimir the Great. In addition, the green attracts attention of the passerby and creates an original space for both leisure and exhibition purposes 20 professional

02.05 Competition _ Wieliszew Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (ETSAV) / 2012 RIBA stage _ 1-2

Abstract: The presented design concept aims to create a coherent vision of the development of public spaces in the center of the village of Wieliszew. At the same time it uses the individual character of each of the developed areas in terms of terrain, urban, functional and landscape conditions. The aim of the project is to enter buildings into the landscape, by permeating the design of buildings with the shaping of the land. An important part of the project is the attempt to answer the functional needs of the residents according to the on-site interview THE SECOND AREA The design of the second area is the proposal of a terrain based on a multifunctional building that serves the needs of the inhabitants. The design of this site is the most landscaped concept. Due to the high values ​​of the surrounding greenery and the lake, we blend the building into an existing slope, turning fully into the natural landscape. At the same time, we provide viewing views along the building and through the central glazed entrance zone. On the street side the sloping roof is covered with greenery, creating the impression of a gentle rise of the terrain. On the lake side, the object is completely glazed creating views for people in the middle of it.

03.01 Competition _ Contest of the adaptation of the castle and town hall square of Aledo RIBA stage _ 1-2 / 2011

Abstract: The Castle of Aledo is located at 750 m above sea level and covers an estimated area of 25, 500 square meters. The fortified town and its Castle have been sought since its foundation at the time of the Caliphate period. In the 12th century became the largest city or medina north of al-Andalus Sarq, as well as the centre of administrative functions over its area of influence. During the last century the city has evolved without taking into consideration the Castle and its public space. This intervention aims to link the city with the Castle. Apart from that, the main building of the Castle has been studied for a future intervention in a close future.

This project research presents some concepts and an initial investigation of a novel 3D printing method based on a technique using PLA filament as the main material. The project is aiming to achieve a new fabrication technique (3D spatial printing) wich could achieve a direct link between design and fabrication processes The project uses additive manufacturing, such as plastic extrusion, to materialize designs based on discrete design principles. This might seem antithetical, but even though the design space is constrained to a discrete set, it’s still large enough that fabrication methods used for serialization are less efficient and cost effective. The

method

allows

architects to create lighter, more efficient forms without

any material waste. This process by itself does not allow for the creation of inhabitable spaces as it can’t full fill all necessary conditions such as insolation, waterproofing, acoustic protection and so on. Infinite-Voxels uses a hybrid approach that combines the advantages of spatial extrusion with other materials and methods, such as machined polystyrene. We can create a catalogue of blocks that can avoids the habitability problem commonly found in digital architecture. The rise of 3D printing has delivered the concept of mass-customization

instead

of

mass-production.

We propose an alternative way to achieve masscustomization by allowing a large, but not infinite set of possible design variations. The voxel can be analog to a cell. The polymerization of these cells creates solid units. Each voxel can store unique digital information, such as spatial and material properties. Through a combinatorial logic, the position, volume, and geometry of the materials in the whole structure is customized. 26 academic

them with the existing construction standards. We are able to achieve a large aggregation based on the 3D printing pieces connected between them. This aggregation is light, reversible and robotically 10

assembled. However, the interest of this research is not the creation of a 3D printed sculture or pavilion, our aim is to introduce 3D spatial printing into architectural scale. INTILE aims to introduce 3D spatial printing at an architectural scale ensuring inhabitability conditions. That is why a Digital Composite Building Block based on 3D printing technology was developed 3D Spatial Printing itself does not allow for the creation of inhabitable architecture because there are conditions such as insolation, waterproof, acoustic protection that cannot be achieved by using a single material. After analysing the different advantages and disadvantages of the system, there is an existing application of 3D printing, which aims to fulfil these conditions. Branch Technology is a company that combines 3D spatial printing with traditional materials in a layered system. Using this system, it becomes possible to achieve inhabitability but on the other hand it is a continuous system and the flexibility is reduced. 30 academic

One of the biggest constraints of 3D printing technology is the size of the printers. Currently, the size of 3d printed pieces is directly connected with the size of the printer. Using a robotic arm, this constraint disappears immediately. Additionally, by using a robotic arm, we can achieve flexibility during the construction process that is not possible with the traditional 3D printing processes. The main advantage is that we can print lines without any kind of support. INTILE has developed an end effector to melt the PLA filament and to extrude it. 31

05.01 Contemporary Art Centre Universidad PolitĂŠcnica de Valencia (ETSAV) / 2010

Abstract: Nowadays, european cities are growing in a perimetral way and their city centres tend to be reconverted in commercial or office areas. This fact creates a lack of identity and that people move to live outside the city centre. However, allocating cultural infrastructures can revert this situation. This Contemporary Art Centre aims to connect the art with the people. A museum should not be understood as a close space, it should be understood as a continuity of the public space where people and exhibitions share the same space and interact between them. The location of the Art Centre is in the city centre. It is surrounded by iconic building that is why the intervention should be respectful to the environment and interacted with it. The main body of the building is underground where the light play a key role into the exhibition spaces. The main idea of the project is to create a public space where people can discover the art without the need of entering in a close space.

05.01 Contemporary Art Centre Universidad PolitĂŠcnica de Valencia (ETSAV) / 2010

In addressing the concept of a contemporary art center in a place like the historic center, we face the thought of how to tackle a project whose program must be unitary under a perspective of fragmented faric? The project finds the answer in the excavated architecture. Under the line of the street you can develop a unitary program and thus give the upper level of the neighbourhood a response that fits in with its fabric.

reception space

This is why the building goes underground, including room in it with more space in the center, a large foyer and a large staircase that invites us to plunge into the unknown. And we find the surprise by inverting the logical path that a building of this nature might suggest. Therefore, after having gone down to level -13, we begin a journey upward through the whole center. From any location, the continual crossing views invites us to discover what will happen in the next room. The compression-decompression that is generated in the flight of stairs allows us to reinforce this aura that emanates from the building where we seek to create sensations in those who visit. After a narrow passage (the steps), we emerge into a large space with almost unlimited visual crossings (the rooms). The journey ends at the terraces where you can walk around, and under a large metal box we find the last major sculpture -the historic center- framed by that space, there by creating an almost theatrical appearance.
