The project is the PARKdesigned’s entry for the latest coniston cricket pavilion competition. PARKdesigned is a creative practice with a reputation for quality and imaginative architecture, interior and structural design. We have an open studio approach in Leeds and London that ensures each individual project receives thorough investigation and analysis, resulting in a bespoke solution specifically tailored to each scheme.
Coniston Cricket Club in partnership with the Coniston Institute and Grizedale Arts recently launched a design competition for a new cricket pavilion with the Architects Journal.
Our building is to be split into three barns. A central community barn provides a flexible public space and ancillary accommodation such as toilets and kitchen facilities. The other two service barns will provide changing rooms, showers and toilets. All barns will also have bed decks located within the roof space.
Outside the cricket season the building will be available to rent as a holiday let. The visiting holiday makers will be able to rent one, two or all three barns depending on the size of the party. The form of the pavilion has been influence by the building heritage of the lake district and has taken an architectural vernacular that is familiar to both the local residents and visitors to the region. The pavilion is to use a timber shingle cladding for both the roof and the external walls. This material will weather over time and will help blend the building into its surroundings. The structure of the build is to use a lightweight SIPS (structurally insulated panels) that are simple to assemble on site. SIPS are ecologically friendly that can reduce heating bills and carbon dioxide emissions. The indicative costs for the build was £45,000 with a budget set at £70,000.

Wawa Pukllay, which means children playing on Quechua, was the invitation of the Social Latin American Workshop 2013 consisting on taking advantage of specific places from different locations at the Colca Valley, to the creation of conditions that would enable the empowerment by a special user: children.
During a two week-period on April 2013, Latin American students gathered in working groups, with tutors from different nationalities, to develop and build permanent equipment.
The work team located in the village of Coporaque agreed a twofold goal:
First, the reproduction of conditions that strengthen and amplify social relations and the opportunities of identification with the space, being attractive to more people, providing incentives for it’s use. This, implied to absorb and integrate existing social and geographical relations, to generate new areas of recognition and approach attempting to transmit local information transparently.
The second goal joined the assistant student to manufacturing practices, and, consequently, the recognition of the individual instrumental potential.
The experience was developed through specific exercises in actual scale and bounded in instrumental terms and materials, promoting management and assosiation with collaborative approach. This, as an instance of action and learning, ie doing things.
The team worked the relationship object-surface through the materiality of space (land and pasture), local materials (chaclas), and the recovery of existing artifacts which were already familiar to users. The intention was that the original object pass to a physical condition that causes a fully updated dialogue to the original or vernacular logic, creating almost spontaneously new interaction systems, leading to a different support.
In parallel, opportunities were identified and incorporated from each local cultural event engendered in any corner, and incite us to use notions differently, like the spontaneous, playfulness, the everyday, the symbolic, the subversive, pedagogical, the accidental and ordinary as the basis of a new program capable of generating encounter and even to invent new practices.
According to everything described, it arises the development of a playground, a scenario that blends with the surrounding nature, a place made for the encounter defined by the user sensations, without reading predisposed to its route, where topography plays a crucial stage posing elevations and depressions allowing a new comprehension of the surface by the child, a topography that adapts to existing gaming devices and achieves an important link between the last scenario with the new park.
The idea is to create an inhabited forest of chaclas or masts over six feet tall, arranged in all the extension of the place, where the child explores the landscape-park, approaching up the opportunity to appropriation as experience.
This “inhabited forest” allows “architecturising” the proposal, turning it into a space where the shadow, light and height (verticality), allows to understand the park differently for each one of the visitors.
The project delivers an open and accessible space for the distention and appropriation of all an isolated population, and with a very few resources, but with a strong conviction that the transformation of this space contributes and generates a significant contribution, on collective relations of the inhabitants of the community of Coporaque in the Colca Valley.

The modern bedroom is often a multi-purpose space, which home-owners may use for everything from working out to completing work related projects. In addition to this, the room is also used a place to rest at the end of a long and tiring day, which means that it retains significance as one of the most crucial spaces in the whole of your living area.
This level of activity and subsequent confusion is not conducive to the development of a clearly defined living space, however, as while modern designs trends encourage multi-functionality it is important to use common sense and ensure that each room retains some sense of individuality. With this in mind, it is crucial that you cultivate a theme for your bedroom and its subsequent design.

After winning a Restricted International Competition, sanzpont [arquitectura] was selected for the design of the Real Madrid Official Store. The project includes Concept Design and Commercial Implementation, Branding, Packaging, Graphic Line and Industrial Furniture Design. The club Real Madrid, Adidas and Areas opt for a very innovative and cutting-edge design, focused on the shopping experience and the creation of impression. Led by the multinational company Areas, the first store was opened at Goya, 77 in the center of Madrid, and this flagship store is located at Gran Via 31, in the Spanish capital.In the basement of the store we find a Special Corner, a thematic space that changes over time. Currently this space is themed as a Real Madrid bathroom, in the near future it will be a bedroom and even a full equip kitchen.
DIGITAL DESIGN: Cutting Edge BIM Technology
The project was developed using cutting edge design tools afrom start to end based in a BIM system.
DESIGN CONCEPT: Experience the Santiago Bernabéu
The design concept of the store is based on an experience at the Santiago Bernabeu, all the walls are lined with images that make you teleport to the center of the field, in game action. The central marquee of the stadium is reinterpreted to highlight the store cash-wrap, accompanied by a media wall and a panel lined with victories that shows all the glory of the club.CREATIVE CONCEPT: Glory is not by Chance
The Creative Concept is based on representing the required effort to achieve glory. It is the justification of a majestic sport career, only own by the best soccer team in history. Is a concept that at the same time it honors, praises and immortalizes the club, it states that achievements have been the result of talent, effort, struggle, dedication and determination. The fighting spirit identifies the club with his followers, is what makes us great, is what leads us to win.
LEDs are integrated in the images of the walls to create the effects of the public taking pictures with flash. These LEDs are synchronized with the in-store multimedia system, and activated when a goal happens in the media wall screens, all these while listening to the crowded stadium. The players reflected on the walls of the store are legends that have been indispensable for the greatness and immortality in the club.EXHIBITION AND FURNITURE: Modular Vanguard Design
The store is divided into three exhibition areas: Textile Zone (Official Gear and Training), Merchandising Zone and Adidas Zone. All the furniture is modular and is designed with the concept of "Ready to Assemble Modular Design", which is designed from the minimum piece to its intelligent assembly system. This allows maximum flexibility and versatility of distribution, a more sustainable transportation by optimizing the dimensions and logistics for international expansion.
Sustainability: Equipment Efficiency
An important factor in the concept design is energy saving and a serious commitment for sustainability, that is why 100% of the store is made with last generation LED luminaries with a maximum energy efficiency. In addition to intelligent lighting, the HVAC systems are optimized for maximum performance to minimize energy consumption. The store entrance is designed with double HVAC sealing system, besides having an automated gate that opens only when the customer enters or leaves, it has an air curtain that works intelligently.
