Granollers HARQUITECTES . photos: © Adrià Goula The plot is located in the historical city centre of Granollers and placed into an urban fabric of dwellings between party walls. The available space is narrow and elongated, only 6.5 m wide; and accessible from two streets. Owing to the dilapidated state of the existing building, only the main façade, reasonably well preserved offering a certain heritage value, could be maintained. The desire of the owners was to differentiate two zones in the house: the domestic area, where the daily family life had to take place; and a secondary area, quite and isolated from the first, functionally independent to be used indistinctly as a living room or to welcome occasional guests as well as organizing meals and gatherings.

Lázaro, Francisco López y Gudula RudolfArq. Técnicos: M. GarridoColaboradores: SAU Bajo GuadalquivirPromotor: Ayuntamiento de GuadalcázarAño finalización: 2011PEM: 411.509,17 €m2 construidos: 414,63 m2Edad media participantes: Categoría: Enfrentada al ayuntamiento, la biblioteca se configura como una caja compacta de hormigón de 7 m. de altura que, recostada sobre su medianera trasera, se vuelca sobre el jardín delantero y el edificio consistorial. Su interior encierra un espacio único subdivido en dos salas superpuestas que, similares en planta, son contrarias en volumen: mientras que la inferior disfruta de una doble altura que le atribuye carácter de gran vestíbulo, la superior, más íntima, comprime su estatura para forzar una vista horizontal del jardín.

Dicha división se conforma mediante un cajón de madera en forma de L que soporta la escalera y oculta las instalaciones que habilitan el confort. Pombal Castle’s Visitor Centre / Comoco Arquitectos (563940) MGM Arquitectos. Sede del diario TAZ .

Tåkern Visitor Centre by Wingårdhs. This thatched visitor centre by architects Wingårdhs sits beside the shallow waters of Sweden's Lake Tåkern, the annual nesting habitat for over a hundred species of bird (+ slideshow). Traditional building techniques were employed to cover the walls and roof of the building with golden reeds, which will fade to grey over time to to match the nearby bird-watching tower that Wingårdhs completed in 2009.

The thatched exteriors are typical of the temporary hides constructed by bird-watchers and they provide nesting materials and hiding places for small birds such as pipits and wagtails.
