Office in Malasaña, Madrid

“The office is the direct result of long negotiations with circumstances far from an ideal that actually does not exist. Knowing it and projecting in its absence is, already, to take a position. (…) The final result is more complex and eventually richer: it is talking about, not only the history of the construction of the building _ (much of the taste of people with our background), but also the process of restoration and adaptation to the place. (…)

The final result, in its complexity, speaks of a systemic architecture, seen more as a harmonization of processes constantly adapted and readapted to a complex place and a specific method of work as an initial image to which everything must converge without any further.“

“The ability of Brijuni Architects to radically change the space relying on a unique resource is laudable. The central iron column, characteristic of a large number of premises of the neighborhood, and the technical floor which covers the old terrazzo tiles show that acid green that unifies the space and gives it character”.

“While clients liked the ground floor, with its acid green paint and bare brickwork, they were even more impressed by the basement meeting room. This featured murals by the artist Jack Babiloni, (…), which translates as ‘knowing and earning’. ‘We admired his work before he became famous, and were so glad when he got in touch with us after we wrote a blog about his work. There are many allegories and metaphors in his paintings: they are about us and even one of employees’ cats that passed away. We used to think that the painting protected us and helped us during meetings.’ The title of the painting is ‘Brijuni is a Mental Landscape’, which aptly reflects the practice’s philosophical take on the world of architecture”.
