The "Villa Nurbs" is a project by Spanish architect Enric Ruiz-Geli in collaboration with Spanish artist Frederic Amat and Spanish ceramics maker Toni Cumella.
"Villa Nurbs" is a family house located in Empuriabrava on the Costa Brava that features vivid, wavelike shapes that use ceramic panels as protection against solar radiation. The ceramics for the north wall of this building were produced using digitally-cut molds under the direction of Cumella. These pieces form the building's ceramic ‘skin' and are shaped in a manner inspired by the scales of a reptile, and were painted by Amat. Ruíz-Geli has brought industry and art closer together by integrating traditional materials such as ceramics and latest-generation materials such as Corian panels by DuPont and ETFE segments by Covertex. In this way he has created an impressive, comprehensive whole piece of architecture.
