Article source: Mullen Heller Architecture

Located in Albuquerque’s historic Sawmill District, known for its eclectic mix of industrial, manufacturing and residential uses, the new warehouse for Chaparral Electric is situated on the property between their existing offices and a residence use. The owner’s goal was to accommodate their storage needs and provide a large mezzanine-level conference room while pushing the limit on “what a warehouse” traditionally looks like.

The project is set up as a new urban landscape that draws on elements of identity that constitute the urban tissue of old Toulouse.  From a regular frame which allows us to organize the new district in a rational and rigorous way, while answering the diverse needs of density, scale, hierarchical organization of flows, contribution of light, we incorporate a fragmentation inspired by the plan of the old town which allows us to generate diverse urban events, perspectives, places…

Cast into the slope

Building a house is a kind of apprentice piece for every architect. Yet the deeper you become involved in this type of commission, the more you realise that it is not as simple as it might seem. Every building is a challenge, no matter how many times you may have done something similar before. With this building there was much that was different: the plot already had a house on it, but the development density was less than that which is now permitted. The clients were clear about what they wanted in terms of space, and also were open to suggestions that could influence their lifestyle.

Fidalga 727 in Sao Paulo, Brazil by Triptyque

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Article source: Triptyque

The urban landscape of São Paulo is heavily influenced by two main characters that coexist independently and simultaneously. On one hand the vertical constructions, most of them faithful to the modernist/rationalist models, evolve randomly with the inconstant guidelines of the urban planning. On the other hand the historical and/or informal occupation on two or three floors of the residual spaces between these constructions.

Quinta da Baronesa in Sao Paulo, Brazil by Studio Arthur Casas

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Article source: Studio Arthur Casas

My intention was to have the house unnoticed from street perspective, therefore the rugged topography of the land was important. It’s common in São Paulo to have a house in the City and an extra house, most of the time, in a residential condominium with golf camp, 1 or 2 hours from the City of São Paulo, obviously for a certain social class. These are mostly residences for the weekend and this residence is an example of it.
