Tile of Spain Announces 2020 Award Winners

Tile of Spain, the association representing more than 125 Spanish tile manufacturers, announced the winners of the 19th annual Tile of Spain Awards of Architecture and Interior Design. The panel of judges met on Thursday, November 26th to evaluate the submissions and name a winner in each category.

Here are the winning projects:


“Casa Ter” by Mesura Studio (pictured above)
The jury was moved by the connection the single-family home has with thesurrounding environment. The structure of the residence was built entirely of concrete and large elongated ceramic pieces, both of which were manufactured with natural clay from nearby La Bisbal, Spain. The interior of the home opens up to nature, establishing a unique indoor-outdoor living concept.

Special Mentions
“Runnymede College Campus” by Rojo/Fernández-Shaw and
“The Young Old House” by Enrique Espinosa & Lys Villalba

Interior Design:

“Atlantis Gastrobar” by Arantxa Manrique
The jury strongly valued the design of this small lounge that allowed ceramic tiles to shine as the true protagonist in this project. Ceramic subway tiles were placed in a vertical arrangement to add height and volume to this small space, while the electric blue bar demands attention by passersby.

Special Mentions
“Tienda Camper La Roca” by Tomás Alonso and
“6 Viviendas en Cabrera de Mar” by TWOBO Arquitectura

Final Degree Project:

“Propuesta Para un Centro de MENAS” by Andrea Puebla Yubero of CEU San Pablo Madrid
The judges admired the proposal for a typology of “impluvium building” beyond the traditional method of constructing a Mediterranean style patio to carry off excess rain water.

Special Mentions
“Patios de Agua y Olivos” by Alba Jiménex of ETSA Granada and
“Salam Bir” by Eduardo Casado López of ETSA Madrid.
