Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Article source: Fuse Architects

This Los Gatos home was designed to capture the amazing views of the Santa Cruz Mountains as the home sits nestled into the hillside on a south-facing slope.  The clients wanted to fill the house with natural light, where the existing house had low overhanging eaves on the south side, limiting the view and natural light.

Bonifacius School in Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands by Faro Architecten

Article source: Faro Architecten

Alphen aan den Rijn is turning into a real city. The developed Bonifacius location has also become an area with urban construction. The new Bonifacius school is the first step in the new urban plan that FARO is making for this part of Alphen.

The appearance of the building fits into the current urban architecture with a brick plinth under a light metal façade. The brick is enhanced with arcs: characteristic, recognizable and strong. The lighter upper façade has horizontal lines and contrasts with color and texture. Building the new school is part of the grander scheme for the Bonifacius location that also houses new apartments, assisted care residences, shops with a parking garage and, in the old school building a hotel or restaurant.

Palma Apartment in Lisbon, Portugal by Pedra Silva Arquitectos

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Article source: Pedra Silva Arquitectos

The intervention in the Palma Apartments’ main premise, was the total restructuring of the existing space to create a new proposal for a more real, more fluid and, above all, more livable space for our clients. The apartment was based on a common typology of the 80’s, where the spatial arrangement was based on partitioning the space. The original entrance opened into an entrance hall, this hall was followed by separate distribution areas, for social, intimate and service spaces. From this central distribution space, the various domestic activities were divided separately.
