Extension of the Cultural Centre in Pedreguer

A while ago we announced that alambiLAB would be the architectural practice to design the new extension of the Cultural Centre in Pedreguer.

Today we would like to show you and image that suggests how this extension is going to be.

This is a humble project that will not only provide the Cultural Centre with an extra classroom and some storage space but it will create a small public space to carry out some of the activities of the Cultural Centre. We are providing the town with a different classroom that will allow the contact with the outdoors.

The storage area will have a U-glass cladding that will work as a lantern and will light up the square at night.

With the new extension and public space we hope to reinvigorate this forgotten space in town.

We hope you like it!

Grand Designs Live, London

Yesterday, taking advantage of the bank holiday, we went to Grand Designs Live in London. The Exhibition will be on until the 11th of May so if you'd like to visit it, there is still time to go.

I am sure that most of you will be familiar with the Grand Designs Show from Channel 4 presented by Kevin McCloud. For those who don't know what I am talking about, Grand Designs is a TV series, first aired in 1999, that features unusual and often elaborate contemporary architectural homebuilding projects.

The Exhibition is held at ExCel London  and is organized in 7 themes (each one of them represented by a different colour carpet): Interiors, Build, Bathrooms and Kitchens, Gardens, Technology and Village.

This show is mainly addressed to people that is looking to build or to renovate a house but it is always useful for an architect to have a look at what is shown at these places.

Our favourite parts of the exhibition where the areas were some small projects were showcased. 
In the Village area you could visit different small houses: one made of straw, one made of hexagonal rooms that could be added up, a compact house in 12 sqm, a dynamic house, etc,... Some of them were for sale at the end of the exhibition but I have to say that I was very disappointed by the finishes of most of these prototypes.
