Antonio Altarriba Comesdeveloped an imposing and seemingly rough modern home in Los Monasterios, Valencia, Spain. Completed in 2012, the residential project takes advantage of a privileged elevated site and maximizes the views towards the Calderona mountains and Valencia’s gulf to the south. The exterior can be characterized as “massive”, despite the open facade connected to the swimming pool and courtyard.

The structure of the residence is as follows: “Compact volumes in the north and west sides, an open façade orientated south facing the sea, and the east façade with some openings facing the mountain. The entrance hall is the virtual axis of the house: it is a triple-height space where the staircase is located.  It is also the link of the three floors of the house. The distribution: day-activities rooms placed in the ground floor and night-activities rooms in the upper floor. Living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry room, toilet and office are located in the ground floor”. Any comments regarding the layout and overall design of this project?

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
