CICCP extension in Madrid

CICCP extension in Madrid

Architects: Galán / Lubascher

Woodworks: wood floors, bamboo paneling, bamboo veneer, wood ceilings, bamboo doors

In the second intervention made to the Official College of Channels and Ports of Madrid by Grupo Gubia, we focused on a significant expansion of the space to give rise to new spaces such as a large meeting room and a space for multipurpose use. Both spaces are accessed through a central hall that incorporates new access to the facilities, for which a custom door was designed in bamboo with a flared oculus that shows the filigree of the bamboo on the edge. Both the lobby and multipurpose rooms incorporate a bamboo panel floor-to-ceiling paneling with a slatted ceiling that provides spaciousness to the room, as well as acoustic improvements. The aesthetics of the rooms are crowned by mixed carpentry _from iroco to the exterior and bamboo to the interior_ which respects the historic character of the property and provides important thermal improvements.

This intervention maintains a design similar to that incorporated in the CICCP main auditorium, where previously Gruppo Gubia had a successful performance, cladding the interior in bamboo. Consequently, the new addition to the college maintains bamboo usage and a consistent aesthetic.

Villa La Toca in Marbella

Villa La Toca in Marbella

Architects: AMES

Building company: Hecobuilding

Woodworks: wooden facade, custom carpentry, bespoke furniture 

This villa in Marbella´s coast is different to the others, its wooden facade contrasts with the white walls and glass of the rest. The architecture studio AMES has conserved the shapes of the slooping roof of the old property giving it a new image where the wood covers a great part of its facade.

We have designed a ventilated chamber behind the WBP phenolic plywood panels, finished in wengue. The pieces have been installed from floor to ceiling separated from the base and protected all the edges with sealing products. A saturator has been applied as covering with an easy maintance, only cleaning and application of the same saturator.

Inside, the custom carpentry has been made of wengue wood. The client has chosen doors and front cabinets, model GUBIA minimal door system, without flashing so the frame is completely flush to wall.

The singular wooden lattice surrounds the staircase and bespoke furniture are part of the design of this luxury villa. (+)
