CSCAE Spanish Architects Board

Last October, XTid Associates participated in the Spanish Architecture Board (CSCAE – Consejo Superior de Colegios de Arquitectos de España) competition to redesign the institution’s logotype. As one of the last measures of its foundation, the competition was open to all architects registered within the board, and gave the participants complete freedom to redesign its logo, as long as the original symbolic content was maintained.

CSCAE Logo

XTid Associates proposed a total reformulation of the logotype, which was originally composed of the junction of the rose, the Crown, laurel and oak leaves, and the compass. The proposal kept the meaning of these symbols which together described the hardships and pleasures of the profession.

Not only gathering the original zymology, our proposal also included the 85 years of CSCAE’s history.

XTid Logo

The proposal presented illustrates the petals of the rose, symbolizing the image of the crown, which represents the continuous development of the profession and the endless process of learning. The meaning behind the leaves were now represented by the curvature of the six Fibonacci spirals, made by the compass, and achieved by the overlapping of the colleges’ map, which through their progress highlight the existing twenty-seven colleges that today form the greatness of CSCAE.

Planning granted for a new dwelling in Reigate

XTid Associates got planning permission granted for the design of a single storey one bedroom dwelling located in the Borough of Reigate and Banstead.

The plot is located within the small settlement area of Burgh Heath. It adjoins the Metropolitan Green Belt and (AGLV) Area of Great Landscape Value. The site amounts approximately 157 m2. The existing construction is with 3 internal partitions.

The existing construction is out of character with neighbouring properties. Unpainted concrete walls and unfinished roof.

An open plan kitchen-dining has been designed to the rear of the property with views to the Green Belt. There is a 4 leaf patio door allowing the connection of the dwelling with such green area.

Smart Breakfast Bar

Homify Magazine has shortlisted XTid Associates design among 8 best ideas for a kitchen, which can save space and money.

To design a fully multi-functional kitchen can be more difficult than we think. Sometimes there is only one or two people having meal at home; and incorporating a small folding dining table will give you the comfort and relief you need for those little moments.

On the 19th December 2016 XTid Associates discovered the winner during the yearly event of Vicente Cañada Blanch Awards with the presence of the Spanish Ambassador in London.

Winner Winner

The design of the winner stands out for its originality when translate the Christmas tree as a house layout with the entrance on the bottom, where the doors are the base of the trunk. The central axis of the Christmas tree distributes the rooms to both sides and to the end. The integration of Architecture and the Christmas festivity is clearly defined in this combination: Christmas tree/House layout.

We are very happy of the art, design and technology knowledge displayed in the contest and very grateful that students of 4ESO have shared it with such enthusiasm with XTid Associates. We are an architectural firm, which our only pretension is to help young people to discover architecture and engineering.
