AQSO arquitectos office designed the ‘Maragato lofts’ in Spain.
Description from the architects:
The layout of the building is conditioned by the angular shape of the plot, situated in a corner, as well as the town planning regulations. This is an area with high historical value due to the abundant Roman ruins that exist in lower layers of the ground.
From the main entrance residents can pass directly to an interior courtyard from where they access the apartments through several passageways.
A generously sized patio is situated on top of the commercial space on the ground floor, taking up nearly 50% of the total area of the plot.
The rhythm and proportion of windows in the mail façade are an interpretation of the traditional buildings in this area. There are two different elements, bay windows looking like hanging boxes and balcony windows protruding from the façade plane.
The sober image of the building become a simple form inserted in the traditional urban fabric with a contemporary language.
