EL EDIFICIO DE CASA DECOR 2021 – La Casa de Tomás Allende

La Casa de Tomás Allende es una representación perfecta de lo que también es Casa Decor, una composición ecléctica y diversa, construida por colectivos de grandes profesionales y empresas, innovadores y creativos.

Un proyecto colectivo que añade, desde su concepción, un sentimiento de variedad, a la vez que de unidad. Las dos “Casas” representan lo mejor de las capacidades artísticas y creativas de este país. Son un reflejo la una de la otra.

Por ello, no es casualidad que Casa Decor haya elegido este edificio para celebrar la edición de 2021. Se trata de una construcción singular y única en Madrid, como también lo es Casa Decor.

La Casa de Tomás Allende se encuentra en la esquina de la Plaza de Canalejas con la Carrera de San Jerónimo. Este extraordinario edificio es una muestra única del estilo arquitectónico regionalista, proyectado por el arquitecto cántabro Leonardo Rucabado y construido entre 1916 y 1920. A la muerte prematura de Rucabado en 1918, fueron los arquitectos Ramiro Saiz Martínez y Pedro Cabello Maíz quienes lo finalizaron siendo fieles a su proyecto.

Casa-de-Tomás-Allende---CASA-DECOR-2021

Casa-de-Tomás-Allende—CASA-DECOR-2021

Recibe su nombre de su primer propietario, el prominente empresario, promotor inmobiliario y político asentado en Bilbao, Tomás Allende Gómez, para quien Rucabado ya había realizado varios chalés en Bilbao.

En 1916, Tomás Allende le encarga una nueva construcción, esta vez en Madrid, en la cotizada plaza de Canalejas, ya centro financiero de la ciudad. Para este proyecto, que estaba destinado a viviendas y oficinas comerciales, Rucabado se recrea y despliega todo el repertorio regionalista que venía investigando y aplicando en otras construcciones. Sin duda, su obra póstuma es la culminación de su corta carrera.

LA FACHADA

El trabajo ornamental de la fachada es rico, ecléctico y exuberante, con una solana cántabra, grupos escultóricos en piedra caliza (heraldos, escudos, columnas, guirnaldas, leones, emblemas, medallones, veneras, etc.), así como ladrillo visto dispuesto al estilo mudéjar, cerámica de Daniel Zuloaga, rejería de balcones y barandillas de Francisco Torras, y magníficas vidrieras de la casa Maumejean.

A la hora de componer la fachada del edificio, Rucabado tuvo muy presente la construcción colindante, la Casa Meneses, construida entre 1914 y 1915 por el arquitecto José María Mendoza y Ussía. Para lograr una armonía entre las dos edificaciones,

Rucabado mantuvo las mismas alineaciones en la apertura de los huecos y remató la esquina con un torreón, de forma que el conjunto quedara integrado en la cara curva de la plaza.

La fachada es, sin lugar a dudas, un magnífico muestrario de los oficios artesanos tan apreciados en las construcciones de finales del siglo XIX y principios del XX, que Rucabado supo potenciar en su ideario regionalista. No cabe duda de que en esta edificación trabajó lo más granado de los gremios de la construcción, maestros y operarios muy cualificadas de los diferentes oficios que llevaron a cabo, de forma impecable, la imaginería decorativa y ornamental de Rucabado.

EL MIRADOR

Uno de los elementos más destacables y sorprendentes de la fachada es el mirador que asoma a la Carrera de San Jerónimo. Está inspirado en la típica solana cántabra, aunque no de origen humilde, ya que en ella hay un excelente trabajo de ebanistería, probablemente realizado por artesanos cántabros.

Está realizado en caoba cubana, madera preciosa ya prácticamente inexistente. En él se encuentra un curioso inventario de tallas que adornan la parte interior de la cornisa: águilas, atlantes sedentes, motivos célticos y figurillas clásicas, junto a pináculos, barrotes y robustas columnas talladas en espiral.

LA CERÁMICA

Daniel Zuloaga fue el encargado de realizar la rica ornamentación de los dos torreones y la terraza. Para ello utiliza una iconografía muy diversa, también de tintes historicistas, en la que aparecen medallones con figuras románticas, toques exóticos, como elefantes o leones anillados, figuras míticas como faunos, escudos ovalados, guirnaldas de frutas y flores, etc.

Daniel Zuloaga fue uno de los más importantes ceramistas de entre siglos, requerido por los grandes

arquitectos de la época, para quienes trabajó en diversas ciudades españolas. Realizó decoraciones tanto en residencias y palacetes privados, como en edificios públicos y religiosos. En Madrid, se pueden encontrar sus revestimientos cerámicos en la Escuela de Minas, el Palacio de Velázquez, el Palacio de Cristal del Retiro, el Ministerio de Fomento, el Hospital de Maudes, el edificio del ABC de Serrano o el edificio Grassy.

ORNAMENTACIÓN ESCULTÓRICA

Una gran variedad de figuras y símbolos historicistas pueblan la fachada del edificio, un interesante trabajo escultórico en piedra caliza. En el cuerpo principal se concentra una serie de grupos escultóricos de relevancia: dos heraldos vestidos con tabardos con emblemas heráldicos (muy similares a los que se hallan en el Monasterio de San Juan de los Reyes, en Toledo) flanquean a un león que sostiene un emblema oval. Este grupo está coronado por un escudo imperial enmarcado por pilastras y un frontón clásico. En la base del torreón se suceden medallones con rostros de personajes históricos, entre los que se reconoce a la Dama de Elche o Francisco Pizarro.

Cabe destacar el conjunto de columnas y pilastras

distribuidas de forma aparentemente aleatoria, pero que guardan relación con el deseo del arquitecto de respetar la verticalidad del edificio contiguo, la Casa Meneses, que se caracteriza por altas columnas que abarcan tres plantas. Rucabado quiso mantener esta armonía, pero rompiendo el orden y colocando columnas y pilastras a diferentes alturas. Algunas de ellas van adosadas y otras exentas; unas acanaladas en vertical y otras en espiral; y casi todas, rematadas con capiteles jónicos.

Finalmente, uno de los detalles más sobresalientes de la fachada es la ornamentación de conchas o veneras que salpican los muros de ladrillo rojo y que recuerda, sin duda alguna, a la Casa de las Conchas, la impresionante edificación salmantina del siglo XV.

EL LADRILLO

El estilo de Rucabado se caracterizaba por combinar de forma magistral muy diversos materiales: madera, piedra, metal, pizarra, ladrillo… dando a todos ellos un uso decorativo excepcional. El ladrillo juega un papel de gran importancia en la escenografía del edificio, ya que sirve de fondo y resalta los elementos escultóricos en piedra y cerámica, aportando cierta intención neomudéjar.

A la tradicional disposición en soga, se alternan otras en espiga, en arco y en vertical, con la yaga vista blanca, lo que refuerza el efecto visual. Especialmente delicado es el trabajo de los dos torreones, que intercala el ladrillo con los elementos cerámicos y una hilera de rosetones de metal que rodean la base de las cúpulas

TRABAJOS DE METALISTERÍA Y HERRERÍA

Otros oficios destacados tanto en el interior como en el exterior del edificio son la metalistería y la herrería. En el exterior, llaman especialmente la atención las barandillas de los balcones, profusamente trabajadas con motivos heráldicos y medallones. En ellos, se puede observa a un águila bicéfala con las alas explayadas, símbolo del escudo imperial.

En el interior, el portal, decorado en mármol rosa, está recorrido por una hilera de figuras históricas en bronce, que potencian el estilo historicista de la

decoración. Entre ellos, se reconocen los retratos de San Pedro, Don Pelayo, Santa Teresa, Colón, Cervantes, Cardenal Cisneros, Isabel de Castilla o Fernando de Aragón. A ambos lados, dos escudos imperiales y sendas farolas de bronce sobre un pedestal de mármol abren paso hacia las escaleras, decoradas con una cenefa de mármol adornada con tachuelas de bronce en forma de flor, donde destaca el soberbio ascensor de hierro fundido. Especial atención merecen las paredes, tratadas con un delicado esgrafiado que simula la textura de encaje.

LOS INTERIORES

El edificio cuenta con 5000 m2 metros aproximada- mente, distribuidos en bajo, seis pisos y sótano. Las plantas están organizadas en dos alas, que tendrán recorridos muy similares y que albergarán un total de 61 espacios. Los bajos comerciales se acondi- cionarán para crear una amplia zona de restaura- ción de más de 200 m2, que permita disponer las mesas con la distancia de seguridad requerida en las circunstancia actuales.

La mayoría de los espacios cuenta con ventanas al exterior, tanto a la Plaza de Canalejas y a la Carrera de San Jerónimo, como a amplios patios interiores. Techos de gran altura, suelos de pino melis y elegantes molduras de escayolas son algunas de las características destacables de las estancias señoriales.

En algunas estancias que dan al exterior, así como en el recorrido de las escaleras, destacan las vidrieras emplomadas firmadas por la Casa Maumejean, una de las más importantes de la época. En todos los tramos de las escaleras aparece un emblema heráldico con corona imperial, águila bicéfala de alas explayadas y un cuartelado rodeado con el Collar de la Insigne Orden del Toisón de Oro. Dentro del cuartelado, se encuentran los escudos de diferentes reinos del Imperio español: Castilla, León, Aragón, Granada, Sicilia, Borgoña, Brabante, etc.

Algunas de las puertas de los balcones están adornadas con vidrieras decoradas con escudos heráldicos en la parte superior, aunque son las puertas interiores de la quinta planta las piezas más hermosas, con un delicado emplomado adornado con un medallón central y orla.

EL ARQUITECTO.

LEONARDO RUCABADO

Rucabado fue una figura muy destacada de la arqui- tectura española de finales del siglo XIX y principios del XX. En su legado, nos ha dejado hermosas edifi- caciones, no sólo la Casa de Tomás Allende, sino también chalés, edificios de viviendas, una biblio- teca y hasta un cementerio. Desafortunadamente, no todas ellas han sobrevivido al paso del tiempo.

Nacido en la localidad cántabra de Castro Urdiales en 1875, en el seno de una familia acomodada, cursa el Bachillerato en Bilbao, tras el cual, parte a Barcelona a estudiar ingeniería industrial y arquitectura, formación que completa con estudios en Bellas Artes y Ciencias. En Barcelona, se nutre de las corrientes de los grandes maestros del momento, en especial de Antoni Rovira i Rabassa, Luis Domènech i Montaner y Josep Puig i Cafaldach. La gran ebullición artística y estética que se vive en la Barcelona de 1900, en la que conviven el modernismo catalán, las Arts&Crafts, el Art Nouveau y el romanticismo europeo, define el carácter del joven Rucabado y despierta en él un singular interés por los detalles constructivos y ornamentales.

Tras terminar la carrera, en 1900, entra a trabajar en el estudio de Severino Achúcarro en Bilbao. En esta primera etapa, su estilo ecléctico está aún influenciado por el modernismo catalán y otras corrientes. Es a través de Achúcarro, por quien conoce a su gran benefactor, Tomás Allende.

A partir de 1910, deja atrás las influencias modernistas y se adentra en un estilo arquitectónico propio, la escuela regionalista montañesa, de la que fue su creador y principal exponente.

Rucabado adopta un nuevo lenguaje regionalista y propone una arquitectura propia nacional, evitando la copia de los modelos extranjeros. A partir de entonces, se centra en el estudio y la defensa de la arquitectura montañesa tradicional e inicia una profunda inves- tigación sobre la arquitectura vernacular. Durante 3 años, emprende una serie de excursiones por Canta- bria, en busca de las tipologías arquitectónicas popu- lares, que dibujaba y describe con precisión. Aquellos

viajes tuvieron como resultado una gran cantidad de dibujos, ilustraciones y notas de las viviendas y pala- cios cántabros. El éxito cosechado lo consagra como arquitecto regionalista y le ayuda a divulgar los prin- cipios básicos a través de conferencias y una serie de escritos sobre la arquitectura montañera y tradi- cionalismo, que también traslada a sus proyectos de la época.

Entre sus obras más destacadas, además de la Casa de Tomás Allende, se encuentra la Biblioteca Menéndez Pelayo en Santander, así como un impor- tante número de chalés y palacetes en Bilbao, en Santander y en Castro-Urdiales.

Leonardo Rucabado no solo fue un gran arquitecto, sino un ferviente estudioso de la historia de la arquitec- tura y las artes decorativas. Hoy en día se le reconoce como una gran figura de la arquitectura española del siglo XX y su gran aportación en la recuperación de la arquitectura autóctona y tradicional.

Through Kingston Lafferty Design studios’ work, they create spaces with feeling, meaning, and character. Spaces where beauty can be appreciated but the realities of everyday life are facilitated. They build brands and modern design graphics to enhance spaces and further impact the overall experience, and that is exactly what occurred in their newest restaurant design in Dublin: The Cinnamon Restaurant. Inspiration and Ideas had got you covered and is about to give you all the inside scoop of this incredible luxury restaurant that is incredibly Instagram worthy.

The restaurant design is almost theatrical – simple shapes become building blocks and buttons to play with, while differing textures encourage touch that draws users to engage with space. This luxury restaurant invites its visitors to become characters in a story. Upon stepping into the pink and maroon dipped room, they experience their environment in fun and unexpected ways, cementing KLD’s success in encouraging us to think differently about this restaurant design.

KLD’s interior design philosophy is grounded in an appreciation for how people live and work. These observations became the foundation for this restaurant design, ensuring those who engage with space may find both meaning and beauty in their encounters. Movement throughout the interior is guided by deep maroon floors which are periodically sliced open by dusty blue circular tiles. This pastiche of color becomes the runway that leads guests into each different microenvironment existing alongside one another.

Four-meter ceilings tower over users as bright sunlight crawls over all surfaces of the entrance. Soft leather couches bend around cozy seating arrangements – the perfect place to wake up slowly with direct sun on a Sunday morning. Suddenly, and as if entering a different contemporary restaurant, 10 steps down the corridor warm sunlight gives way to the moody glow of a hanging pendant. Definitely a restaurant design for pink lovers!

An intimate velvet-covered seat wraps itself around a space carved out of the side of a wall, a setting with ample amounts of personality and drama. Each pocket of space, created by the injection of a new mezzanine, takes on a different and playful personality which facilitates the unique desires of individual customers – human experience clearly the main focus of the restaurant design scheme.

Bespoke light fixtures become oversized lollipops glowing throughout the room. A wall of circular mirrors capture the light before reflecting it onto adjacent high-gloss surfaces – customers sitting beside them encouraged to watch as they shimmer before them. There is experimentation with scale too. The main entrance deliberately maintains a double-height wall while the additional bar was designed as an oversized element that makes visitors feel miniature with “a dollhouse effect”.

Casa Décor Madrid | Pepe Leal

For Pepe Leal, interior design is a way to solve a space, and the way to solve it is what distinguishes different decorators. He considers himself more an artist than an interior designer since the facet that interests him most of his profession is to move volumes and objects creating sensations.

When searching for a more secluded location for a getaway home, this family settled on the Lebanon mountains to set up a luxury retreat, the only thing missing? The keen eye of an incredible interior designer such as Thierry Lemaire.

From the infinity pool, swimmers can take in Beirut, about 30 miles to the southwest.

Dominated by gnarled limestone formations, the immediate surroundings are moonlike and magical. The landscaping of the garden was overseen by Vladimir Djurovic, whose most sweeping gesture was the relocation of excavated rocks to create a stalagmite-style screen for the pool by the luxury retreat’s main entrance. The house’s architect, Raëd Abillama, meanwhile, chose to clad the ground-level façade with slabs of stone from the property. It took local artisans two years to assemble them.

“This house was conceived by two people with very different personalities,” Nicolas Garzouzi remarks of the luxury retreat he shares with his wife, Michèle, and their two sons in the Lebanese ski resort of Faqra. “Nicolas is very rigorous and never leaves anything to chance,” notes their interior designer, the Paris based Thierry Lemaire.

Landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic used rocks excavated during construction to create a craggy wall at the entrance. of this luxury retreat.

In contrast to the rectilinearity of the architecture in this luxury retreat, much of the furniture design is sculptural and curvaceous. Examples include the topographical Pyrenees sofa by Fredrikson Stallard in the living room, the meandering Massimiliano Locatelli dining table, and the leather-clad bar fitted with stirrups, which Michèle commissioned from Lebanese designers David/Nicolas.

Due to the world’s recent state, the Metropolitan Museum of Art had to postpone its blockbuster spring 2020 Costume Institute art exhibition“About Time: Fashion and Duration” Met Galawhich was originally planned to take place on 4th May 2020.

Met Gala‘s “About Time: Fashion and Duration” was set to explore fashion’s unique ability to time travel, melding clothing styles from different periods together to create ‘new’ ideas, moving in cycles at the same time as moving forward, and ensuring that some styles are considered timeless and ephemeral. Let’s take a look!

While the Met is still closed, the organization decided to share its curated collection of contemporary and historic garments which traces a century and a half of fashion. Scheduled to open to the public on October 29, 2020, the presented work dates as far back as 1870, in honor of the museum’s 150th anniversary.

Presented entirely with black garments, the Met Gala‘s “About time: fashion and duration” emphasizes the evolving silhouettes and use of secondary detailing. With the collection of pieces ranging from 1870 to the present, curators aim to connect the concept of “duration” with debates about diversity, inclusivity, sustainability, and other ethical issues that will surely express a continuing impact throughout the next decade of luxury fashion. Employing Henri Bergson’s concept of la durée (duration), it will explore how clothes generate temporal associations that conflate past, present, and future. Virginia Woolf will serve as the “ghost narrator” of the exhibition.

A timeline of 120 garments will unfold in two adjacent galleries fabricated as enormous clock faces and organized around the principle of sixty minutes of fashion. Each “minute” will feature a pair of garments—the primary work representing the linear nature of fashion and the secondary work its cyclical character. Each pair will be connected through shape, motif, material, pattern, technique, or decoration. For example, a black silk faille princess-line dress from the late 1870s will be paired with an Alexander McQueen “bumster” skirt from 1995.

All of the primary garments will be black, to emphasize their evolving silhouettes, and the second will be either black or white, to underscore their mutually reinforcing associations. The exhibition will conclude with a small selection of garments from 2020 that links the concept of duration to debates about diversity, inclusivity, sustainability, traceability, transparency, longevity, collaboration, and other ethical issues germane to the next decade of fashion. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog.

Still yet to be seen is the theatrical design of the gallery space, which is scheduled to be unveiled this fall.

“Fashion is indelibly connected to time. It not only reflects and represents the spirit of the times, but it also changes and develops with the times, serving as an especially sensitive and accurate timepiece. Through a series of chronologies, the exhibition will use the concept of duration to analyze the temporal twists and turns of fashion history.” – Andrew Bolton, the Wendy Yu curator in charge of the Met Gala‘s costume institute
