Model of the city of Argia, our contribution to the exhibition "Mirabilia. Interpretations of Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities" in @antilia.gallery , opening tomorrow in Bitonto . “What makes Argia different from other cities is that it has earth instead of air...” Thus begins the portrayal of the city of Argia that Marco Polo tells to a bemused Kublai Khan: a city one can’t see, even if one knows it is down there, under one’s feet. . The balance between mass and void that defines architecture is here torn. Argia is mass and mass. Massive are the walls of its buildings, but massive is also the space within, and the space without. . Our model of Argia extracts a portion of the city from the earth. At a scale of 1:200, it represents a fragment of 40x40 meters of an invented city, constructed as a collage of urban archetypes. Each of the four sides of the prism shows us a two-dimensional, sectioned view of that city, and we can only guess what goes on beyond that point. . Many thanks to @fabiana_dicuonzo @giuseppe.resta and @jgatip for the invite!! . #bonelldoriga #antiliagallery #invisiblecities #italocalvino #architecturalmodel #architecture #architecturemodel

Last week we showed our renovation of an apartment in the Frégoli building (2016) to a group of students from @archatillinois , in a visit organized by @_nu____ and @carolina_bge . It was interesting to go back to the project and see it inhabited, especially if the people living there have such a cool taste and great sense of humour as @maryroch and @pepsqu (note the human-scaled Mr Bean popping up on the upper floor). We took the chance to take some new pictures of the apartment, which make for an interesting contrast with those we took just as the work was finished two years ago. . #arquitectura #architecture #beforeandafter #interior #architecturephotography #edificifregoli #bonelldoriga

Ground Control. Competition for the new headquarters of a media company in Barcelona, 2017 . The project deals with the refurbishment of an old car dealer shop and garage in order to turn it into the new headquarters of a company that focuses on the creation and distribution of media content. Their young and audacious character, as well as their interest in environmental and social issues, combined with their aim to work in an anti-hierarchical and flexible structure are some of the key aspects that shape the project. . One of the proposed concepts deals with the reintroduction of green spaces into the urban fabric. Taking advantage of the fact that the original structure is prepared to bear huge loads, we propose to turn the existing terrace on the second floor into a garden with amenities for the workers, including a small, refreshing pool. . More info on the project soon . . . #bonelldoriga #architecturecompetition #architecturemodel #architecturalmodel #architecture #garden #maquette #maquetas

LLUR table has been awarded with an AJAC award for “Product Design”! . The design of the LLUR table has its origin on a very specific need: a table for a pentagonal room. The geometry and dimensions of the space, but also the placement of doors, window, storage, etc., results in the necessary deformation of the table, which loses the orthogonality and replaces vertices with a curved contour. . A second requirement was that the table top could fit into a plywood board of standard measures (2440x1220mm), lead to dividing it in three parts, to be cut with computer numerical control. Once the ensemble is put together, each of the three pieces has a different wood grain, which creates an attractive texture effect. A fourth smaller piece, circle shaped, includes a removable part, which allows for wires and plugs to pass through. The table top stands on three screwed metallic legs. . Despite the very particular origin of its geometry, its irregularity makes it easily adaptable to different kinds of spaces and produces interesting relations with its surroundings that change according to its exact disposition. The amorphous shape allows for different ways to be used, from one or two people working individually to a larger group of people seating for a meeting. . We have also received a second award for “Divulgation of Architecture” for our research platform @aseriesofrooms . The AJAC awards are given by the Association of Young Architects of Catalonia . #bonelldoriga #PremisAJACXI #architecture #arquitectura #productdesign

On the first floor, an office space that is open, flexible and singular; combining a clear functional organization with spaces that want to foster creativity and encourage interaction and synergies. Vegetation infiltrates the rigid structure through small courtyards that provide color and natural light to the deep floorplan. .

Madrazo 54. Renovation of an apartment in the Fregoli Building in Barcelona (2016) . Rather than a radical transformation of the spaces, the project of the renovation of one of the apartments of the Frégoli building (1973) aims to preserve and recover its primitive character, and to create a series of small interventions that establish a connection with the old architecture. . A new relationship is created between the kitchen and the dining room by a new window that provides natural light to the interior and establishes mirrored visions between the spaces. . #architecture #architecturaldrawing #interior #isometric #bonelldoriga

I am a Treasure - Exhibition space and lansdcape project in Warszawa. Europan13 Special Mention. . Our project for the exhibition space for the treasures recovered from the bottom of the river Vistula in Warsaw consists on a semi-buried pavilion covered by concrete beams with vegetation and membranes of water. The pieces are lit by thousands of reflections, the result of the rays of light going through the water, which create an atmosphere that has a character of its own. .

Renovation of an apartment in carrer Madrazo 54, Barcelona (2015-2016) . A bookshelf on the upper floor references the flexibility of the original project of the seventies, which presented the possibility of losing or gaining rooms with the movement of walls. This involves a mobile organization of the vertical supports, adaptable to the needs of the users, on which the horizontal shelves rest. The result is an open structural system, constantly redefinable, the attractive of which lays on an ordered disorder, or rather a disordered order. . #bonelldoriga #architecture #arquitectura #furniture #interior #bookshelf

Concurso Astoria-Victoria in Málaga, 2016-2017, along with @mh.ap . Our proposal, titled LOGMA (Loggia de Málaga), presented an outdoors interior, a building that recovered aspects of traditional Mediterranean architecture and served as a container of talent and innovation, reintroducing productive uses into the city center. Illustrated in this image is the fourth floor, an open polyvalent space with views to the Alcazaba and to Plaza de la Merced. . #architecture #arquitectura #architecturecompetition #architecturedrawing #architecturerender #bonelldoriga #mhap

New project online! 1606 - Bertran II . A series of dark squared terrazzo pieces, organized in a systematic disarray, stand out on the smooth white concrete platform placed at the end of this urban garden. The platform is elevated 35 cm from the level of the garden in order to cover the top of a retaining wall built some time ago to avoid a landslide that could affect the foundation and stability of the building. .
