ABC Museum, Illustration and Design Center, Madrid  – Aranguren & Gallegos Architects
This museum building is hidden within a residential neighbourhood to the north of Gran Via in  Madrid.  The brilliant white criss crossed sunscreen blades differentiate the facade from the earth tone context.  The site opens up to the street to create an entry court and make a connection to a rear passage.  The crystalline motif is further echoed in the floor patterning and the metal facade.  The modest interiors reveal that the project was actually the result of a partial renovation of an existing building.  Urbane, clear and yet unrestrained.
