对Torres Blancas公寓的干预意味着与建筑师Francisco Javier Sainz de Oiza的原始想法、其建筑元素的状态以及在其最现代的叙述中保护的价值进行对话。安东尼奥-莫拉和爱德华多-塔松是STUDIO.NOJU的创始建筑师，他们遇到了干预一个400平方米的复式建筑的机会，这个建筑的最大单元在过去50年的历史中被高度改变。有了这个介入文物建筑的机会，建筑师们想展示他们对如何在有保护程度的建筑中进行改造项目的个人看法。
An intervention in a Torres Blancas apartment implies a dialogue with the original ideas of its architect Francisco Javier Sainz de Oiza, the state of its built elements, and the value of preservation in its most contemporary narrative. Antonio Mora and Eduardo Tazón, founding architects of STUDIO.NOJU came across the opportunity to intervene in a 400 square meter duplex, the largest unit of the building which had been highly altered in the past 50 years of its history. With this opportunity to intervene in a heritage building the architects wanted to demonstrate their personal take on how to work on renovation projects in architecture with degrees of protection.
The proposal that STUDIO.NOJU has made moves away from the more nostalgic vision of the preservation of the originally built state and is completely rooted in the ideas embedded in Oíza’s project, not only of the interior of the apartment unit but of the building as a whole. The renovation speaks of the building’s past with references to original formal gestures, such as the interior of the house that recovers its sinuous curves that had been erased, but at the same time adapting its new formal language to the contemporary needs of its inhabitants.
“Torres Blancas建造时的社会政治背景与今天相去甚远。我们必须给这些受保护的建筑以发展的机会，使其适应新的时代和新居民的需求。当局不允许他们的演变，强加的过度保护主义谴责这些作品的活死人 “安东尼奥-莫拉强调说。
“The socio-political context of the time in which Torres Blancas was built is far from today. We must give these protected architectures the opportunity to evolve and adapt to the new times and needs of their new inhabitants. Not allowing their evolution on the part of the authorities who impose an over-protectionism condemns these works to a living death” emphasize Antonio Mora.
“It was important for the design to have a contemporary translation of these ideas, and not to imbue the existing elements in formaldehyde. For us, the best form of preservation is to pay homage to those ideas and not to the elements with which they were built more than 50 years ago.” Eduardo Tazón points out
除了恢复以其蜿蜒的曲线为特征的原始空间性，这些曲线在连续的翻新中被抹去了，翻新的目标集中在恢复房子的外部空间，这些空间也被取消了。当时，这些公寓被当作 “空中别墅 “出售，但最初作为房屋核心的原始露台几乎没有留下。
In addition to restoring the original spatiality characterized by its sinuous curves that had been erased in successive renovations, the objective of the renovation focused on recovering the exterior space of the house that had also been eliminated. At the time these apartments were sold as “Villas in the sky” but little remained of the original terraces that initially were the heart of the house.
STUDIO.NOJU with its intervention recovered all the lost outdoor space and returned the character of a patio-house to the unit by adding a series of benches, planters, and a fountain, the original design of the studio for which they use a striking green glazed mosaic that gives the space great energy and vitality. From references to the materials used, the morphology of the structural plant, the colors, and the filtered light, the vast majority of the project decisions take the original project as a starting point but always start from the idea they wanted to convey, not the way it was done.
