Portico in Tokyo, Japan

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Article source: Aida Atelier, Inc.

This is a house for a family of three in a residential neighborhood of suburban Tokyo. Surrounded by properties subdivided through generations of time, this site maintains its original state. Albeit having plenty of land relative to others, six different adjacent properties with homes built tightly to the boundary leaves the project site with a condition, which limits the project from fully enjoying the advantage of having a deep street frontage with the river. Such meticulous condition of uneven contextual grain at a time of transition from continuing growth and expansion, it shall undoubtedly be emerged in mass in the residential neighborhood. As such, the theme for this project is the approach to architecture and exterior space that receives undulating peripheral density.

Between the Lines – 25 cradles Nursery in Paris, France by COMPLEET | Delbarre & Cabrera Associées

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Article source: COMPLEET | Delbarre & Cabrera Associées

How to synthesize a contextual, functional and aesthetic work through an architecture ?

The confidential characteristic of the Passage des Tourelles in the XXth arrondissement of Paris led us to imagine an opened equipment of proximity, a “breathing area” at the heart of a dense urban tissue.

The very particular presence of this nursery is expressed by a voluntarily marked architectural bias. An image shaped by the meeting of two entities where typologies, materials and asserted colours produce a reading which is simple, plural and sequential at the same time.

View Point House in Lima, Perú by 2.8x Arquitectos

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Article source: 2.8x Arquitectos

This project, to be developed in a residential neighborhood in the east area of the city of Lima, belongs to a particular client. The challenge: meet all the requirements of the owner in an irregular piece of land on a hill with steep slopes. The location of the land and the view you have from it towards part of the city, would be decisive for the project.

The main goal of the client, an old lady, was to start a new stage in her life, full of novelty and modernism. The project had to fulfill this need and at the same time guarantee the comfort in her everyday life.

Beverly Skyline Residence in Austin, Texas by Bercy Chen Studio

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Article source: Bercy Chen Studio

Beverly Skyline Residence, located in Austin, Texas, is a single-family residence and consumes 2800 sq. feet of its 1-acre property lot. The homes remodeling transformation was taken on by Bercy Chen Studio, a local architecture firm with design and build capabilities. When taking on a new project that has a clear site and limited restrictions, the designer has more flexibility to create and explore new styles, resources, and building materials. However, taking a preexisting home and transforming it into a modern 21st century home, equipped with new building technologies and recyclable energy consumption in mind, creates many obstacles in both the design and construction period and therefore requires more innovation from the designer.

  • Location: Beverly Skyline, Austin, Texas
  • Program: Addition and Remodel to 2,800 sq ft Single Family Residence

These public toilets are located at the Synergy Plaza in the Kumutoto Precinct, situated at the northern-most end of Wellington’s waterfront.

SILEX – EMVS Foro Habitat Sostenible Competition in Madrid, Spain by Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Article source: Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos

Due to the situation and the characteristics of the plot, and taking advantage of the free ground floor to generate the access for the center instead of for an end, the project appears as a threshold of access to the Colonies of “Nuestra Señora de los Angeles”, a step between the urban environment and the green space that proposes the plan.
