Projects Wanted - Courts in Coín, by Donaire Arquitectos

The fourth project featured in "Projects Wanted" section came from the Architecture office Donaire Arquitectos (from Seville, Spain), that sent us two projects. We publish today the first one - Courts in Coín, located in Malaga, Spain. The project, designed for a governmental client, presented a 1.842.929,11€ budget and a area of 2.205 sqm. The published photos belong to Donaire Arquitectos and were taken by the photographer Fernando Alda.

We are open to receive projects from all around the world, regardless of their dimension or typology. Please send us high quality photos (indicating their authors), drawings and descriptive texts in English to our Marketing e-mail - It will be our pleasure to help spreading new Architecture concepts and ideas.
The building is located in a redevelopment area northeast of Coín, in Málaga, Spain.

The building consists of two distinct areas. The main area is an abstract area reaching the maximum allowed height, and the second area is a single level used for access and adapted to the irregular form of the plot. Two materials are used, stone for the basement, and metal sheets that reach to the top of the building. The metal strips protect against direct sunlight and produce a uniform and abstract image of the building. At night the metal strips disappear with the light inside the building.

Throughout the building there are two types of circulation to access the various units – the public access is articulated by the lobby, and the private access connects the stairs and court staff’s lift. The private access is at the back of the building and is connected to a secondry, back entrance. As a public building the project has created a contemporary image and a reference point for the entire town and surrounding area.
