Juno’s House by Nook Architects

Photographer: nieve|Productora Audiovisual

Our clients purchased a row house with the intention of doing a modest refurbishment: to renovate the kitchen, opening it to the living room, adding a new bathroom and give the whole a fresher look. When the works began, however, we detected that the quality of construction was extremely poor and that each level was a patchwork of humble materials. The floor slab of the main level almost collapsed on top of us- we then had to come to a halt and analyse the situation. A simple refurbishment had converted into a comprehensive intervention that affected the structure and envelope of the house. (more…)

Doctor Manzana Flagship by Masquespacio

Photographer: Luis Beltran

Masquespacio just finished the design for Doctor Manzana’s second store, specialized in smartphone repairs and gadgets, located in the University district from Valencia.

The history from Doctor Manzana and Masquespacio started during the summer of 2013 when their founders Fran and Reyes commissioned the creative consultancy to redesign their brand and create their first point of sale. Being the brand specialized in reparations of mobile phones and smartphone cases, above other accessories for smartphones, the brand reinvention focused mainly on the 54 degrees angle of touch screens. That angle was applied both to the brand as well as to the interior design, besides four different colors: green and blue as a reference to the doctor, salmon for the fashionistas and purple for the geeks. Metal on the other hand adds an industrial touch that reminds us of the laboratories. (more…)

The apartment, located in a building in Raval, just a few metres from La Rambla, is an achievement of space. As you walk in, it opens up from the main façade to the rear terrace, which looks over the Boqueria market. Initially, we were surprised to see that the apartment occupied the entire floor of the building, with a contrast of large and small obsolete spaces and proportionally limited connection to the enormous, uneven terrace.
