Double house. Design, execution and construction management. Albacete (Spain). 2013 105.000 ₏ Own project The desire of a newly retirees couple is to return to his home town to be closer to their family. This couple wants a comfortable and quiet home to live, but they also want a space where they can gather with their family and friends. The project proposes three different areas. The first of these areas is the home for the couple. It’s located on the ground floor, open to the garden, and contains everything they need for everyday life. In the second area, on the first floor, are the guest rooms. Both areas are connected in the living room and are the new building. Third area located in the existing building, contains the garage and the party room, connected with house and garden but allowing to continue with daily life.

Pavilion for public use in an artistic centre International competition by Archivo DiseĂąo and Domux Mexico Mexico city (Mexico). September 2012 30.000 $ DJarquitectura The new pavilion is a garden. The garden, as it is right now, is an absolutely fascinating opportunity to shape this new public space. We are interested in working with this situation, taking the project as a catalyst and a good opportunity to work with strategies, tools and components usually used by the gardener: earth, seeds, water and time. The earth is moved and piled up to house all the planned activities for the pavilion, defining a new place between trees. Defining the space with heights. Defining the space with heights: heights for standing, shelter spaces anda new height that would raise your eyes above the wall to see Barragan’s house. This concept of “no pavilionâ€? must address the transformation of this micro-landscape with arranged nature but also unexpected. Here the phenomenological approach becomes more important.

Cruise terminal, the new tourist attraction Final degree project. Universidad de Alicante Alicante (Spain). January 2012 8/10 -Cruise tourism has evolved much in recent years. Cruise ships have become large floating amusement parks. These large ships carrying thousands of tourist from one city to the next. Almost every day, thousands of tourist arrive at these cities to visit their monuments, in these big ships. But these visits last only a few hours and generate problems of overcrowding and traffic jams in cities. How we can avoid this problem?

Cruise terminal, the new tourist attraction The project proposes to convert current cruise terminals in large tourist centres. Cruise terminal, besides being a control and transport infrastructure, it has to be a place where tourists can entertain themselves and know the city. Terminal combines the services of boarding and unloading with spatial recreations of the city, shows, hotel rooms‌ Terminal has to be a landmark, a new sign into landscape, through scale.

Regenerative infrastructure for Fresh Kills International competition by Lagi (Land Art Generator Initiative) Fresh Kills (New York). May 2012 Rafael Guillem and Julia Cervantes


Regenerative Infrastructures: Freshkills Park NYC (ISBN 978-3-7913-5286-2)


We have opted for the idea of making the invisible part of energy visible to society. the project shall be constructed based on a pair of opposites Hard & Soft: *Hard&Soft Energy: -Hard-Energy is the infrastructure itself and its relationship with the landscape. -Soft-Energy is a dialogue between two different realities, two sides of the same coin: energy consumption and production. *Hard&Soft Landscape: -Hard-Landscape is the impact of the construction of a 100-acre energetic infrastructure. -Soft-Landscape is a proposal that interacts with the pre-existing, moulds to the shape of the land. *Hard&Soft Information: -Hard-Information is the information about the energy consumed in Manhattan, which no-one normally knows about. -Soft-Information is the visibility and integration of energy consumption data for an area of Manhattan into the physical and emotional landscape.
