Books and Housing

Valencia, Spain · June 2016 · Individual work

The objective of this project was to create a complex with a residential building and a large bookstore. In order to achieve that, the building is focused on its environment and surroundings, with a special focus on sustainability. It's located in Valencia, facing a very busy avenue on one side, and a pedestrian area on the other, therefore the design blocks itself from the stress and traffic, while it opens towards green peaceful areas. Keeping the idea of adapting to the enivronment, the material used throughout the building is bricks, a typical material in the region, which is used in alternative ways, creating indoor spaces with permeable walls.
