CASA VARGAS URBAN REACTIVATION

MADRID (ES)

Client: Municipality of Madrid
Date: 2011
Status: Shortlisted Competition. 1st Prize
Program: Remodelling of Casa Vargas, a historical building in Casa de Campo
Scope: Conceptual strategy, program and sustainable architectural scheme

The Ecosistema Casa de Vargas project aims to reinforce the urban value of the natural park of Casa de Campo and the Manzanares riverfront, emphasizing the environmental, historical, cultural and recreational quality of these areas. Thanks to its crucial role as a meeting point, information sharing site and environmental activities location, the Ecosistema Casa de Vargas is planned to be a recognizable landmark within the whole urban landscape of Madrid.

The proposal addressed the project both at a conceptual and urban strategy level, as well as renewing the architecture itself. The architectural renovation scheme included eco-efficient features and solutions, transforming the building into a showcase of sustainable architecture. In addition to this, we also proposed and developed the digital layer of this new environmental hub.
