Refurbishment of a patio-house in Gracia, Barcelona (Spain) by Carles Enrich

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Article source: Carles Enrich

The conversion of an old dry-cleaning shop between party walls in the Gracia district court into a home-studio for a young family is a fantastic opportunity to rethink the use of an unused place and optimize the conditions.

It is proposed a system to enable the inhabitants to live in an single space arranged around the patio, where the bathroom is the only enclosed piece. All activities take place in a single room with visual contact with the patio. To achieve this, all the partitions that enclosed small rooms with no natural light or ventiliation were removed and the openings were extended to the exterior.

Fagerstrom House in Sollentuna, Sweden by Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

Article source: Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects

The client had split his garden city plot in two and moved the old house to the one. The other had a more embedded position, including a big old oak tree in the middle.

The gross building allowance had to be fully exploited in order to create a large enough home for the growing family. The stipulated distance to the property line of course limited the positioning from the sides, while the desire to preserve the old oak tree blocked the middle.

Skyon in Gurgaon, India by Sorg Architects

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

Article source: Sorg Architects

In the early 1980’s the automotive company Maruti Suzuki catapulted Gurgaon from farming village to growing commercial sector, by locating large scale operations there. Lured by tax reforms and the proximity of Delhi International Airport, private firms and multi-national corporations began flocking to Gurgaon as the Indian markets opened up to global investment. One decade later the largely undeveloped land in Gurgaon appealed to developers as the need for a satellite city in Delhi’s expanding metropolitan area became increasingly apparent. Gurgaon has been nicknamed the ‘Millennium City’ and has seen an unparalleled period development that has significantly outpaced progress on infrastructure and municipal support structures.

Step tower in Osaka, Japan by EASTERN design office

A stark white ship that sails in the middle of the bustling sea of colors.

The ship floating on the ocean suddenly appears in a shopping center. It evokes a feeling not of a resort area, but of an exotic corner of a town in some southern country. A feeling of a ship that comes across this area by chance.
