El Caramuxo es la respuesta a una necesidad del cliente de crear un restaurante privado, una casa de comidas, una bodega, un txoko… para encuentros de empresarios en un entorno íntimo. Su ubicación en un sótano -2 en el interior de un parking determina la experiencia surrealista y mágica de la intervención. Se pretende deslocalizar la actuación jugando a la posibilidad de ser. La bajada en espiral a los sótanos se interrumpe al acceder a este pequeño espacio. La caja oscura del acceso precede al caramuxo, lugar en el que el tiempo no discurre.

Para ello, se trabaja la desaparición de contexto mediante el difuminado de los planos horizontales y verticales, ventanas y lucernarios de halogenuros luz día, mobiliario y elementos de luz volumétrica integrados en paramentos y otros mecanismos que trasladan a las personas a una cámara del tiempo. La idea de espiral, de bígaro, o pequeño molusco es el lazo arquitectónico que integra toda la actuación.

LOPEZNEIRACIAURRI , was established in 2003 by Ramón López Neira together with Beatriz Ciaurri, both architects from the Navarra School of Architecture (Escuela Superior de Arquitectura de la Universidad de Navarra)& both with A Grades. Every project is unique and requires its own interpretation, whether it involves a house, school, office building, museum or urban development plan. We don’t like trends and don’t work with presupposed styles. Our office is an atelier. The development of our ideas makes it essential to be in contact with other people. They lead us to adopt different approaches and oblige us to focus or put things into perspective. We always contract specialized structural engineers and consultants and when a project requires us to work with landscape architects and interior designers we will do so in order to achieve an optimum end product. Professionalism is vital. Broad knowledge and experience, both in the fields of construction technology and methodology, and of process management are required. We believe in an integrated approach. At each moment in the process, we are aware of factors such as construction time, cost and methodology. Besides these, we rely on a simple organisational structure with a clear approach, short lines of communication and clear contact people. We work on special projects for special clients Discussions with our clients are very important. We take the time and the space for research, surprises and new insights, in order to achieve a shared vision for a project, together with the client, users and all other people concerned. We notice that clients and contractors can appreciate our approach
