Fender Custom Shop in Mexico City, Mexico by Arquitectura en Movimiento

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectura en Movimiento

Located within the historic center of Mexico City, on the rooftop of one of the most important themed stores of the music scene, the Fender Custom Shop Mexico City is Latin America’s first Fender store and follows a different concept from those in other countries. The basic concept for the development of the project was an architecture conceived as temporary, a sort of hybrid space that could function equally as a store, an art gallery, a meeting space or a lounge; together with music, a short-lived happening and the idea of the guitar as an anthropometric unit of measure.

Devoto House in Villa Devoto, Argentina by Andres Remy Arquitectos

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Article source: Andres Remy Arquitectos

This project was a great challenge for the Studio, considering that it was going to take part of the urban structure. The lot of 18 x24 metersis located in Devoto. It is between two existing buildings that threatens the project when the problem of isolation and view. For this reason this project is leaning towards its neighbor, creating an introspective posture that creates the views from the inside rather than from the outside. An architecture that generated its own views. In this manner the Project was able to solve the basis of isolation and views from the garden. This was a constant worry from the clients since the beginning of the Project.

Can Baró Library in Barcelona, Spain by Sierra Rozas Arquitectes

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

Article source: Sierra Rozas Arquitectes

The place destined for the enlargement and the whole Can Baró environment, preserved the charm of those areas where diversity and disunity required a forceful, logical and considered response. The enlargement becomes an extension of the topography looking for a merger between the building and the public area, which is not seen as something that we find between the buildings, but is integrated into the architecture. The architectural area is something that we find hidden or camouflaged within the topography.

JP House in Cuenca, Spain by MYCC Office Architecture

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

Article source: MYCC Office Architecture

In most developed countries´ small villages it is very difficult to find craftsmen who work in the traditional way. Somehow, a manner of making products can be given up for loss. The romantic idea of a really traditional construction method is just too naïve. What is usually built are just cheap copies of rural houses that usually does not have an origin in that specific place, but in some ideal villages from Lord of the Rings or Joan of Arc films. Everything out of this becomes either too expensive or simply impossible.

Article source: Jackson Clements Burrows Pty Ltd Architects

Hueis a 5 storey apartment building that sits within a post industrial streetscape inLord Street,Richmond. The site is bound on 3 sides by large 2-4 storey brick warehouse buildings whilst across the road are the rear yards of residential properties. The brief was for a multilevel apartment building that maximised yield on the site. Our design strategy was to imagine the site as a landscaped island within its austere industrial surrounds.

Article source: Concrete Architectural Associates

Hotel Castell D’emporda located in Girona, Spain offers a signature restaurant including a large terrace with great views over the surrounding landscape. Concrete designed, at the clients’ request, a roof or covering for this terrace with the possibility to create an enclosed space with full wind and rain protection. One of the design conditions was to create a covering that works in harmony with the historical and listed building. Additionally we wanted to maintain the terrace feeling while be seated under the covering.

ROKU Edogawa in Tokyo, Japan by masatomo_kojima_auds

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

Article source: masatomo_kojima_auds

This project is a unit-based intervention for tenants re-occupying existing buildings. The market for this intervention is mainly young customers visiting a new cafeteria. Certain spatial flexibility was required for other activities such as live concerts and shows. The design of the space had to be adjustable and controllable in order to fit in several project sites and within different existing building conditions. The main focus of the project is to invent the system comprised of basic units forming the whole cafeteria, which could be further developed as several design options by transforming its shape and adjusting to its surroundings.
