Green Housing tall building, Tomares (Spain)

Site: Tomares, Seville (Spain)

Area/Surfice: 19,968 sq meter

Status: Proposal

Perform jobs: Concept design

Description: The goal of the proposal is to propose a change in the typology of low  buildings of Tomares.

The building in height can recover the concept of housing with garden in a tall building. Additionally, the low screen will be maintained for green areas and equipment, reducing the cost of urbanization.

Tall buildings allow to enjoy the views of the environment and the city of Seville, while improving the ventilation conditions with the reduction of cooling energy demand.

The vertical rotation reduces drag force due to wind  around 25%, that cheapens the structure and foundations.

Vertical city concept

Site: wherever someone wants

Perform jobs: Concept Design, Struture behavior

Description:  The project answers the problem of the current big cities. The proposal avoids the zoning and the displacements that saturate the infrastructures daily. 

The project is the second part of the study of a new type of a high-rise building previously shown.

The proposal is a set of tall buildings that accommodate all the uses of a city, from housing and offices, to commercial areas, leisure and green spaces.

From the structural point of view, the comparison with the isolated tall building of the same height evidences the Demonstrates the improvement by reducing the cost of the structure.

The sets of tall buildings are joined by platforms that stiffen the structure. The final behavior is not as an isolated tower, so a frame.

The platforms with the height of five levels (21.5meters) can accommodate all type of uses, such as sport, exhibition areas, restaurants, etc and the roofs become green areas. The surface each of the four roof is 5,000 square meters (20,000 sq). Link engineering

  • Member of Project management team

Description: We began the project after the Master Plan made by the client. The buildings, installation shape and position area were defined.

The projects consisted on doing the architectural and construction project, urbanization and coordination the supplies from several European countries.

Our main intervention was using the external cladding constructions as only one element in all intervention.

A colour transition between the Heineken green to Cruzcampo red (dark green, light green, white, yellow orange and red). These colours are very special in Seville, because they are the colours of the two football teams in the city, Sevilla and Betis. The colour had to be the same at the corner of close buildings.

The buildings shape are very different. To join them, all they have a white plinth that transforms in vertical on the higher building facade.

These all get a continuous element almost one kilometre long that is the facade to the motorway.

For the construction the colour position was changed, losing part of the objective. I prefer not to talk about it.

Description:  The program is to create three exposition rooms that can be used together, an administrative area and concert hall for two hundred people.


The plot is closed to the fairground. The project takes part of it as a public establishment.


The plot is very slope. The proposal has to order it all.


The most interesting project element is the roof. It has organic shape as the surrounding mountain covered by olives field. We use the arc shape to create steel structural bent that are combined with slope columns. The result is vast, unencumbered exhibition spaces. It achieves an optimal structural behaviour. The roof surface is divided into several bands with glassed area between them allowing natural light and ventilation. The rooms are separated by mobile walls that permit to have a only space with the roof as protagonist.


The roof rises in entry creating a reception area to the front fairgrounds. It allows to get the possibility of using it.


The inside rooms are completed by outside space that are adapted to slope creating a continuous exposition area, one of them can be used as stage with the stall seat adapting the natural slope.

A condition was that it have to be built for a short time.


The proposal is a large free central space. The offices, tickets offices, and commercial and restaurant room are located in laterals of the building.


The structure takes part of the interior design. The structure is by repetition of a frame of white concrete, that has double symmetry, to reduce the construction cost and time. The structural strategy eliminates the need for supporting columns across the interior span of 50 meters. It allows to achive an unencumbered reception space.  


The interior is lit with daylight from the central clerestories and lateral skylights which enhance the structure support with the shades.

Detached house with energy high efficiency (Passive House)

Site: Collado Mediano, Madrid (Spain)


Perform jobs: Concept design

Description:  The position is on the corner of two residential streets and has a panoramic view of the natural environment. The sloped plot is over 11%, so a platform is made to get a flat surface that will improve the view and its role in its surroundings.


The construction has to be separated by three meters from the plot line, so the footprint could be only eight meters wide.


 The solution: the exterior will have three volumes, carport, day and night areas, linked together but the interior is a free space.


The house will have its back on neighbouring plots, directing all their openings south and southeast to capture maximum solar energy and to reduce energy consumption during the winter season, recessing glazed surfaces to reduce solar radiation in the summer, and to reduce energy consumption required for obtaining a “Passive House Certificate”.
