Located where two rivers come together, the Confederación Hidrográfica Miño and Sil office building will be protected by the official use the building serves. Designed by VAUMM + Taperstudio, their compact and geometrically absolute design aims to turn the new equipment into a reference able to articulate that piece of city. Its pyramidal shape is due to programmatic, functional and corporation itself requirements. More images and architects’ description after the break.
The expansion project for the Radio Museum in Ponferrada, Spain is built around a new courtyard, which houses the entrance to the building and provides support for “sound” connection with the old museum. Designed by VAUMM arkitekturak and Taperstudio, the piece is inserted in the historic center offering a renewed image from the traditional imaginary. The connection of the volumes at the end of the courtyard and the inner spatial distribution, organizing servant and served spaces, enable a clear and easy travel throughout the building.
