Article source: Manuel Graça Dias + Egas José Vieira

Two lofts were adapted from an old typography space, located on the ground floor of a residential building of the early twentieth century, in Lisbon. The building plan, almost a “square” shape (350,00 square meter), distributes its liveable space in a “U” shape, around the entrance lobby, the staircase and a small interior court yard.

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

Xiang’he  Garden City – Park of the floating gardens


At this moment a masterplan for Xiang’he Garden City is developed. A new garden city of approximately 700 hectares will arise close to the future 7th ring of Beijing. Within the first phase of the development a park is projected, closely related to the water basins that are a result of clay reclamation by the existing brick factories. A steep slope along the north side of the factories will be a result of these activities that will affect the park design, since on the north side of the basins housing development is projected.

Sharma House in Bangalore, India by Kamat and Rozario Architecture

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

“Achieve a contemporary house with vastu compliance” was the brief for this renovation project.

The existing structure was a 30 year old typical Bangalore house with thick load bearing walls. Most of the outer walls were very close to the plot boundary cutting out a large amount of light. The neighbor’s house too was hugging the boundary wall in certain areas which cut off even more light.
