Abitare il sottotetto in Milan, Italy by Studio Arcadia Ego

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Article source: Studio Arcadia Ego

The design solution for the apartment started from the need to modify the original project that included the execution of a partition wall in front of the entrance; this wall delimited the area deputed to food preparation closed by sliding glass doors and furniture provided with angular. This solution, however, prevented a rational distribution of the residence, having an area of 30 square meters, could contain only a small table and a sofa. The project, planned to greatly reduce the wall of the kitchen until it becomes a shoulder retaining wall system of open living space which becomes a distinctive design element.

Teacher Education School by Idom

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Article source: Idom

Following the instructions given by the UPV and due to its strategic location within the city, the building is intended to become an architectonic reference for its appearance. This issue has been addressed, as will later on be explained, by means of a modern and high quality design, in line with the institution it represents. For that purpose, apart from a well taken care of volumetric composition that carefully works around the volume restrictions imposed by the site development plan, the logo designed by Eduardo Chillida has been included in the planned double glass façade.

Membrene in Stratum in Nagoya, Japan by Kotaro Horiuchi Architecture

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Article source: Kotaro Horiuchi Architecture

“Membrane in Stratum” is an installation that wraps around the interior space. The concept of human activity is emphasised by the graduation of translucency through the membrane. The membrane regulates depth and boundaries. We can divide the room in many ways by the penetration, reflectance and absorption of light. We can change the function of the room at our will. A dynamic space is born from the shadows that reflect of the membrane surface and vibrantly decorate the room.

The site is located in a housing development area in Calvia coast, close to a pine forest overlooking  the sea. The client  wanted to have a house with views among the trees.

The building is fitted in the plot towards the buildable boundary enclosing itself in a half moon shape and focusing all the rooms towards the sea.
