Spanish studio Arquitecturia have just completed this very subtle building for a Civic Centre in Tortosa, Spain. Part of the building occupies the old city market while the new extension focus on redefining the square where it locates. All the exterior of the building is covered with metal slats while the interior is made out of slim white wooden slats. The photos from Pedro Pegenaute really bring to life this small yet very interesting piece of Architecture.

As read in Cyanmag, it seems that Mr Jacques Herzog from Herzog & DeMeuron has fallen in love with the Spanish Canary Islands, after having built a couple buildings in Tenerife for the past years. Therefore he and his family now own this happy place with an ocean view, designed by Herzog himself for his own enjoyment.
Usually when Architects build for themselves, they tend to experiment more and break some rules. This house seems to be interesting, with a clear aesthetic of Southern Spanish Architecture and built with traditional and local materials. Let’s hope that in the future we can, at least see some interior shots of the house.
