Casa Campolivar in Godella, Spain by ANTONIO ALTARRIBA ARCHITECT

 
December 10th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ANTONIO ALTARRIBA ARCHITECT

The idea was to generate a stone podium that emerged from the base itself, establishing numerous relationships with its immediate surroundings, serving as the base for the sculptural piece of concrete where the program’s night area is located.

Materiality is a fundamental part of this project, the work with stone, textured white concrete, glass and wood, are the elements that in an artisanal but very technological way defines the project.

China House Vision No. 8 Pavilion in Beijing, China by Crossboundaries

 
December 10th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Crossboundaries

Modern China is a place of continuously shifting socioeconomics. By 2020, more than 60% of the population will reside in urban areas – a dramatic increase from the 26% of 1990. This massive urbanization and densification puts tremendous pressure on both cities and citizens to adapt quickly. Soon the majority of people in China will live in mid- or high-rise residential towers, whose standardized layouts will become increasingly unaccommodating for the new nuclear family unit, digital nomad, or co-living / co-working community.

Block 41 in Seattle, Washington by GRAHAM BABA ARCHITECTS

 
December 10th, 2018 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: GRAHAM BABA ARCHITECTS

Located in the downtown Seattle neighborhood of Belltown, Block 41 celebrates the legacy of an historic warehouse while transforming it into a contemporary, multipurpose event space. The 15,000-square-foot, two-story, brick-and-heavy-timber building began its life in 1927 as an ice warehouse. Over the years it was subject to multiple renovations and modifications, resulting in the fragmentation of the building’s large volumes into a series of dark and maze-like rooms. The new design highlights the building’s history by stripping away later insertions and partitions to reveal its hard-won patina, while simultaneously opening up the volumes to create spaces large enough for formal events, yet flexible enough to accommodate intimate gatherings.

Renovation of a Functionalist Villa “Indian Ship” in Prague, Czech Republic by idhea architekti

 
December 10th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: idhea architekti

The villa was built in 1936 according to the design of a noted Czech architect Vladimír Grégr, grandson of a well-known journalist and politician. Built in functionalist style, the villa has significant rustic elements including conical exterior walls, rough dragged work and wooden casing. In the framework of maximum respect to the original character of the house, the modifications include removal of the accumulation of insensitive silt of the 80s, highlighting the unique spaces and architectural details, and adaptation to modern living standards.

Apartment Building in Domat/Ems, Switzerland by RAPHAEL ZUBER, Architect

 
December 10th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: RAPHAEL ZUBER, Architect

The building has five floors with one apartment on each of them. The main space is reached directly from the outside by an elevator and an external staircase, which gives every unit a private character.

The balcony, its load bearing structure and the different openings create the sensation of experiencing one corner of the building as its center – as the center of a seemingly infinite space. The horizontal window in the main space, being attached on the inside of the wall, gives to this wall the character of an outside facade, creating a close connection between inside and outside and private and public.

The construction of the building is radically straightforward, using only common standard products.
