Borgos Pieper in collaboration with Gustafson Porter, Nova Ingenieria and Grupotec have been selected unanimously by the jury to design Valencia’s new Central Park.
The studio was invited to present a sustainable masterplan for a new community of 350,000 residents on the site of former light industrial and agricultural land on the outskirts of a major city.
The studio was invited to present proposals for a new conference and exhibition centre on an urban site adjacent to a public park. The brief requires two highly flexible “magic boxes” to serve the growing need for exhibition and banqueting spaces in the city.
The practice has designed a unique design studio, dwelling and roof terrace in one of Barcelona’s best addresses for the new Borgos Pieper office in Barcelona.
This commission for a lakeside residence in Caputh is unusual in that the existing Dacha, built in the 1950’s for a senior politician in East Germany, could not be altered in its volume or area.
The unique and idyllic site overlooking the Caputh Lake outside of Potsdam has a handful of neighbours and is surrounded by a nature reserve. The sloping site offers privacy through its established garden that focuses the internal and external views towards the lake to the South.
The studio in collaboration with Eckersley O’Callaghan Engineers developed a proposal for a nearly invisible structural glass enclosure as an extension to a grand period property in London. The scheme responds to the client’s desire for complete interaction with the garden throughout the year. Flooded with light, the virtually external room will become the focus for living, dining and entertaining throughout the year.

Borgos Pieper was appointed to design an exclusive hotel and club on a prime site in Hollywood that will create a new landmark building. The 12,000sqm proposal includes lounges, cinemas, screening rooms as well as landscaped garden, three destination restaurants, spa, fitness facilities and 80 guest suites.
A commission to transform a 1920’s former coachworks for Barker & Co, coach builders for Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Daimler in Notting Hill, London into a major new art foundation and media offices. The brief includes exhibition, education and multi-media spaces which will allow for a wide range of programmed events for the foundation.

Appointed after a competitive interview the proposal sensitively upgrades the public spaces in and around the historic market building designed by Francisco Mora in 1916.
This project combines a rich mix of spaces inspired by the local vernacular architecture with a modern vocabulary of light and transparency.
The site, a 3,750sqm riverside location with views out towards the sea and a wide expanse of river front on the east, allows uninterrupted views of the water throughout the day. The scheme is composed of a series of open courtyards and internal volumes enveloped by terraced garden spaces which offer a variety of indoor and outdoor living areas to enjoy throughout the year.
