ÁLVARO PORTOLÉS LLORENS - INTERIOR DESIGN -

Álvaro Portolés Llorens is my name but I sign my works with: ‘‘alporllo’’ that is a mix of my first name and surnames. Isn’t that clever? I was born in Barcelona in April of 1997. I have been living almost all my life there excepting when I did my Erasmus in Sheffield (UK) in 2019. I consider myself a responsible guy who doesn’t mind if something doesn’t work at the begining because with effort and compromise things always go ahead. I have worked in a lot of fields during my life, but the most remarcable one was an intership in an architecture studio in Barcelona during the summer of 2019. I have also made some personal projects like a proposal for the hall where I live or a external project from my university in which I had to design a display case for a 3D printers store. I use to travel a lot with the objectives of know new methods to produce, to get new ideas and to learn in every travel. I am not sure if you are going to take advantage of this but I also love listening music and play football.

JUST TO LET YOU KNOW In this personal portfolio I am going to show my work during my three years of university. In these period I have produced a lot of work but I am almost sure that you don’t want to see it all. That is why I am just going to show what I consider my best and most interesting work. In this portfolio you will see some design projects that I have done and some photographies. Take pictures is one of my passions and I consider that is a personal way to express the point of view of the things that sorround you. So, who knows, maybe you could know me a little bit more taking a look to my photographies Finally, just to let you know, I have developed profesional designs for a architecture studio in where I used to work as a intern but, in this portfolio, I will only show my university work due to data protection and all this stuff. Hope you like what I do.

CAST - CONCEPT STORE -

INTRODUCTION CAST is a brand based in Sheffield that came to my Erasmus University to give us a briefing for their new concept store placed in the center of Sheffield. Before giving us the briefing, they explained us how this brand works and what they wanted to achieve creating their own space (till the moment, they had been working in different coffee bars without a stablished sede). What CAST pretend is to give you the oportunitie of create your own piece of jewellary in a sofisticated and comfortable space where you could feel focused and inspireted for design. They give you a set which allows you to develop your cutting skills in order to create a maginific piece of plastic jewellary that afterwards they will convert it in iron, gold, bronze, silver, etc...

CAST - CONCEPT STORE -

The space is organized in three different áreas. The first one is destinated to the costumers welcome, the second one is where almost all the workshop take part and the third one is where people can rest and interact in a much more comfortable way after the workshop or during the breaks. When you enter this space the first that you see is the jewellery that CAST do. I think that this is interesting because costumers can see the products in a artistic way which can also draw the attention of new clients by the time they are deciding if entering or no. In the entrance (first área) you also can see a video with shows the costumers what is the CAST method. Furthermore you can interact with the managers in the desk/reception and you also have the possibility of waiting in a sofás space. Here the atmosphere is different than in the workshop área, this is due to the necessity of light in each área. In the second área is where the customer will create his or her own jewellery taking in account the referents which have been taken from the expo-show. In this area, we can see a big table, a kitchen/coffee bar, an empty space for possible partners who would need more space and storage. We can also see steps which connect with the first floor, in this first floor we have the toilet. Finally, we have the chillout space, a space made with wood pallets in which people can sit down with a coffee or whatever and enjoy of a special moment in a special place. Moreover, in the walls of this area, we could see a wall-orchard which will provide fresh vegetables to cook some delightful dishes. The concept of this space is to create an eco-friendly space in which people feel good coming there to get the coffee or, much better, come there in order to make the CAST jewellery experience.

THE STEEL CITY - FACTORY HOUSE -

INTRODUCTION ‘‘ The objective from the first moment in which I selected the industrial plant to be reformed has been to work the project in a real way, respecting important aspects that cannot be overlooked when you want to rehabilitate a space’’ The plans of this factory have been obtained from the Internet after contrasting between several options. Finally, I decided to obtain these plans which give a wide range of possibilities thanks to the large dimensions of the plant and it’s high height. On the other hand, another aspect that led to work with this plans was the clearness of its lines, straight lines that marked which were the load-bearing walls and pylons that could not be lifted for anything in the world, cause if you erase it the structure wouldn’t have been stable. At all times this project has been worked as if it were in a way, a real project. Although, it is possible that throughout the project aspects of constructive viability have escaped because my knowledge of architecture is not very advan-

THE STEEL CITY - FACTORY HOUSE -

I have opted to give to this space an industrial and minimalist aesthetics that allows to maintain the essence of what was before, a site where humble people won a salary to live.. Despite the lack of delicate and elegance of the materials used to build the interior of this space, i believe that I have achieved a nice, beautiful and useful space to live in. This environment hasn’t got a lot of color but this fact, is part compensated by the light that the great amount of windows and glasses lets enter inside. Our intuition and experience tells us that industrial environments are dark, dirty and chaotic environments. What I wanted with this project was to break with this experience and create a luminous and clean space. On the other side, I have respected the total height of the ceilings, but in certain stays i have reduced them through false ceilings to achieve a better sensation. ’’

BACARDI - THE EXPERIENCE -

INTRODUCTION The most difficult point for developing this project was the location, this location needed a stable structure to generate something temporary on it, so my first objective was to generate a structure that holds the temporary space above. My main objective was to design a temporary place where people could feel free and could enjoy every moment. I studied the possibilities that I had in terms of construction and in terms of what was going to happen in this space. After a lot of thinking, searching and inspiration research I decided that this space was going to be built on a scaffolding base and that the quadrate shape would be the main shape of my project. In this project, I have also been working with colours and materials. As you will see, the shapes are basic and are the colours and materials those which make space looks warm, fresh and comfortable. The references that I got inrst moment have helped me a lot by the time I had to design the furniture or whatever in this space. The Cuban culture is so present in this project and, the branding of bacardĂ­ as well. The application of humble materials combined with strong colours generates a sophisticated environment with a low construction budget.

BACARDI - THE EXPERIENCE -

This space has been distributed in three parts with three different entrances but, all the parts are connected. The first entrance is placed in the higher point of the structure, in this part you have a build in which you can learn about cuba and bacardí history, inmerse yourself in a virtual cuba world or record a video and share it to the social media. In this first part as well, you have a food truck and a drink bar. Furthermore, you can also interact or stay with your food and drink in a ‘’square’’ placed in the middle of this first structure. The second structure is placed in the middle and it’s a kind of tunnel in which you can see Cuban street art pieces. The third part, the lower one, has a drink bar as well, colourful steps and stands, a lounger zone, the toilets, a quiet part to drink and have fun without being disturbed and a workshop placed in an old van. I think that it will be great to play movies in the big building next to this structure but I don’t know if it would have a real connection with bacardí so I’m not sure actually. You can enter this third part by the ramps placed in the lower point of the structure or by the first entrance, which is communicated with the third one by steps.

MOLDEA - CHURRERÍA PROJECT -

INTRODUCTION For this group project we had a big space in a garage. The possibilities were extensed but we had to taken in account that it was a small street were people didn’t use to hang out. The most difficult point was to create a strong concept and design the space, the graphics and the products very accurate in order to let people knew us and made the business work efficiently. For the naming redesign we had really clear that we wanted a name that included the client in some way. After going through various failed options, we thought that in order to keep connected with the original naming, we would left the last two letters (-ea). We decided to search for a verb that was related to our service and global experience. “Moldea” was the final option. In the 3d printing process, it’s fundamental to create a model to print,. This action it’s called “3d modeling” and in a more artesanal and manual way, “to mold” means to give shape to a material in order to create and object. That’s essentially what our client will be doing when they create their own churro designs, so we thought that this naming was perfect for us, because it’s direct, simple, explains the experience and includes the costumer.

MOLDEA - CHURRERĂ?A PROJECT -

The main idea of our interior project is based on a big kitchen that allows having inside several 3d printing machines in view of the costumers. The iconicity of this large cube that presides over the centre of the room is huge thanks to its dimensions and materials. Inside this central space is where all the churros are moulded and fried. For the clients of Moldea, the fact of seeing from the outside of this big central island how the churros are extruded and fried can be a unique experience, something they have never had the chance to see. Dulcinea is a lifelong churrerĂ­a whose interior gives off an unmistakable essence. What is pretended with Moldea is to not lose the essence of the typical and rustic. The value of our project is to create a place for all where they can experiment with something new such as printing food and have a nice time in an opened and interactive space. This space will be destined to a varied public, both to the more conservative people and to young people who will go out of their way to take a photo in our premises or to record for the networks the extrusion and subsequent frying of a churro.

GRAPER - BRANDING PROJECT -

INTRODUCTION ‘’In this project, our purpose was to create a youth brand of sweaters and T-Shirts. It was the first contact which I had with the design and the production and I want to show it because I am so proud of this entrepreneur scheme.’’ This was probably the first design project I made. When we were 17, I and my three best friends decided to create a clothing brand for people of our age range. First, we started with no idea of what we were doing but when we started to have some public we realized that we were doing right. In the first year, we succeeded with only one sweater model so we decided to design more cool models of sweaters and T-Shirts. This brand was promoted by social media, we had our own account in Instagram and also on Facebook and we upload posts every week with news and pictures of clients wearing our sweaters.

PHOTOGRAPHY - BEST PICTURES -

INTRODUCTION I have always been a person who liked to take pictures of the places I visited. I started to take pictures some years ago (when I was 12 more or less) with my parents’ camera. But it was not until three years ago when I had my first Reflex and I started to love digital photography. Until the second course in Elisava, all that I knew was because I took photos by and for my own when I was bored. But after the Digital Laboratory subject, I realized that photography is a big vice and, nowadays I’m very awed. I also take film pictures, and this hobbie begined at the beginning of 2018 when, by casualty I found an Olympus in my house that my parents used to use when they were younger. I started to investigate about how it worked and, finally, I fell in love with the film method of taking pictures. Nowadays I have always a film camera with me during my trips that’s why I have pictures of the recent places which I have visited.
