Today we are talking about a new project by the OHLAB architecture studio. A project that bets once again on the wooden facades and the technical solutions of Grupo GUBIA.
They are Parallel East & West, two residential buildings in the Bonanova neighborhood, in Palma de Mallorca. Both buildings have been designed to be sustainable and energy efficient. The 12 homes, with private pools, have their own private garden or a spectacular roof terrace with panoramic views over the bay of Palma, Cala Mayor and Illetas.
The flagship element is made up of its north and south facades, covered by huge folding wooden lattices, inspired by traditional Mediterranean lattices. The element in question is composed of thermo-treated wood slats with a section 42x65mm separated by 40mm. With a studied folding system that does not invade the interior space, the motorized wooden lattices open and close depending on the position of the sun. This mobile solution guarantees interior privacy and creates a constantly changing play of light and shadow inside each home, adding an extra touch of life to each space.
For the interior carpentry, the architecture studio has prescribed GUBIA wooden doors and cabinets. Oak wood will be the interior bet of these homes.
We like to give you the good news and the reason is that we have been working on a project that involves large-scale wooden lattices.
