Residential Loft in Boston, Massachusetts by The Galante Architecture Studio

Saturday, May 19th, 2012

Article source: The Galante Architecture Studio

The goal of this project was to divide the space into a definitive function, yet retain the feeling of an open plan loft. A series of “L” shaped bars were inserted to organize the space. Visual unity is maintained by reducing form and color to bare essentials, and breaking this mold only when required by program. Continuous light maple built in cabinets provide a constant rhythm throughout the loft. Darker idiosyncratic cabinets are inserted into this baseline to provide definition.

2050 Ultra Flood Plain in Ayutthaya, Thailand by Shma Company Limited

Saturday, May 19th, 2012

Article source: Shma Company Limited

Design Process

The goal of modern development has created a clear separation between agricultural and industrial activities, between human and nature, between fluid and solid territories, which become a threat to human living. As we move forwards and slowly detach from nature, we neglect the power of it and forget how we once live with it. Ayutthaya is the city which illustrates such on-going situation clearly, from the day when water was city’s breath to the day when water become city’s catastrophe to local economy, society and environment. In planning for the prospect Ayutthaya we shall try to understand the formation of crisis, in order to determine the new balance between water, Ayutthaya living and Chao Phraya river basin.

Home-Office in Formentera, Spain by Marià Castelló Martínez

Saturday, May 19th, 2012

Article source: Marià Castelló Martínez

01. PLACE

Es Pujol de s’Era is a fairly representative fragment of the inland landscape of the island of Formentera. It comprises 33,022 square metres of wheat and barley fields, a small wood of common and Phoenician juniper and rosemary, and dry-stone walls on a practically flat topography.

The intervention seeks refuge among the existing vegetation and a fragment of dry-stone wall. These two conditions draw out the dimensions, the orientation and the height of a construction of austere geometry that bears some relation to the architectural tradition of Formentera.

North Facade With Wood Panels Open

8×8 House in Formentera, Spain by Marià Castelló Martínez

Saturday, May 19th, 2012

Article source: Marià Castelló Martínez

The project is located on a plot of rustic nature at the Portossalè band on the island of Fomentera. This is an extension of an existing house formalized as a self-­‐serving refuge for a teacher. The volumetric project is highly conditioned by the existing building as well as native vegetation which needed to be retained. In this context arises the 8×8 sq meters floor, which is part of a basic program where public areas (living-­‐room and kitchen) act as distribution areas, thus getting larges rooms for the small scale of the building.
