2019 shortlists

The New Brick Tectonic
by Muñoz Miranda Architects

Shortlisted for housing project of the year at Dezeen Awards 2019, The New Brick Tectonic by Muñoz Miranda Architects is located on a beach in Malaga, Spain.

The residential building is situated next to a protected early 20th century smokestack, indicating the industrial activity in the area at that time. The architects chose to use bricks in order to create a dialogue with the industrial smokestack. The new building technique makes the architecture contemporary, forming an abstract facade using glass fibre reinforced concrete. Two indoor shared courtyards are covered with a white corrugated sheet, forming the access corridors to the dwellings.
