26.07.2018 – The project revolves around the great central atrium covered by a new monumental roof permeable to the passage of natural light. Surrounding it, a crown of auxiliary uses open to the surrounding streets. The intervention helps to filter the internal relationship and links the project to its context.

All accesses and movements are barrier-free and suitable for people with reduced mobility.

OCA ARCHITECTS DESIGN PROPOSAL FOR SKY RESORT IN BULGARY
10.10.2017 – Borovets as a tourist destination is increasing its popularity both on the Bulgarian and the international market, because of its perfect alpine scenario in the heart of Europe. To strengthen its competitiveness, we propose a transparent and permeable building which will intensely promote adventures and physical challenges, cultural and identity activities, health and physical well-being, as well as ecotourism.
We firmly believe that this new addition in Borovets must solve not only the existing discontinuities of the urban form but also will become an icon which will attract new tourism therefore activating the whole area. Its a reciprocal strategy: both Borovets and the building will and need to immensely benefit from each other.
The architecture surrounding the Golden triangle is nowadays a quite strange cocktail of styles. Our proposal assumes its serious responsibility by adopting a contemporary language. Its transparent and colorful façades expose the interior multipurpose spaces to its visitors and families. Nevertheless, it’s not only the exterior visibility but the cultural activities that will arise in it what will place the building in Borovets skyline.
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018

OCA ARCHITECTS PROPOSAL FOR THE CITY OF RYDE HUB
17.04.16 – Design our Ryde competition, with Irene Gascón
We believe that the new Ryde Hub precinct has to be a bold statement of what the city of Ryde has been and will become. To accomplish this we propose to keep the old Civic Centre building and to erect a new cell-shaped meeting point around it, a sustainable construction capable of becoming the new heart of Ryde.
For a young city like Ryde, which only dates back to the 19th century, to lose the old Civic Centre is to lose a very important part of its character and identity. Therefore we believe that it is of the utmost importance to keep it as a key part of the new Ryde Hub. What Ryde needs most is not a group of iconic brand new buildings but an innovative design capable of giving value to its history.
