In 2015 Gianni Ranaulo Design won the competition of Oasiz Madrid with their visionary concept in the realm of retail and leisure. This expansive complex aims to redefine traditional shopping experiences by integrating leisure, lifestyle, and adventure seamlessly.
The design strategy focuses on cohesion, utilizing iconic architectural elements to unify spaces. Gianni highlights the challenge in designing these spaces, emphasizing the importance of avoiding disjointed architectural elements amidst disorganized urban settings. “In this sense, we have opted for architectural elements with an iconic or ‘landmark’ character, which allow the creation of a reference in a place without them and accentuate the unity and architectural quality of the complex,” explains the architect. “The unity of the whole is achieved thanks to a white surface that, with different thicknesses and geometries, connects all the elements, building a mesh designed as a Voronoi diagram, which is the formally strongest feature, giving the center its own identity, acquiring an iconic character,” says Ranaulo.
Oasiz embodies architectural innovation and sustainability. Designed to harmonize with its natural surroundings, the center's iconic structures and lush green spaces create a unified environment that captivates visitors. Sustainability is a guiding principle, with eco-friendly features integrated throughout, ensuring minimal environmental impact.
Oasiz offers diverse experiences, from gourmet dining to thrilling adventures like zip-line, karting, rock climbing, and more. Cultural events enrich the lively atmosphere, making it a hub of leisure, entertainment, and innovation. Its BREEAM Excellent rating underscores the design team's commitment to innovation. Oasiz Madrid transcends traditional leisure destinations with its pioneering approach to mixed-use development. The innovative coworking space seamlessly integrates work and leisure, providing professionals with a conducive environment for collaboration and relaxation within the premises.
Landscaping plays a crucial role in this lifestyle concept, fostering cohesion between built space, nature, and individuals. With over 50,000 plant species and picturesque lakes as elements of spatial cohesion, Gianni Ranaulo insists that “this space is a destination.”
