Article source: Tomas Ghisellini Architects

Renewal and expansion of a historical residential building in the heart of Ferrara

Just a few meters from one of the most beautiful straights of the Renaissance defensive walls complex, within the compact urban structure of the historic center of Ferrara, an existing building from the early fifties reaches a bold new face through a surgery intervention of recovery and expansion.

The consolidated architectural body, growing in height in search of a spectacular view of the horizon and leaving the traditional brick cladding, changes its skin, resulting in a material standing presence, simple and rigorous, with carved openings that meet the original layout geometry.

Fields of color and tone variations, demarcated by three-dimensional carvings in the wall surfaces, stir the ingredients of the common language of urban housing, and give the elevations a taste of contemporary, while retaining the building, protected by the laws of the Architectural and Environmental Heritage Office, an elegant and austere character. A large covered balcony at the top floor, defined by a transparent wall of glass, frames the view of the walls. From the inside, rooms and spaces seem like floating among the trees.

Small Explorers Kindergarten – Instant House Competition Winner in Milan, Italy by B2 Architecture

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Article source: B2 Architecture

In a strictly orthogonal urban context, in the street of Via Ugo Betti  in Milan, we decided to create an oasis for children, that will break down the rigorosity with the help of organic and playful shapes. The design of the building and its surroundings will create a bridge between the neighborhood and the children by orienting itself to the main directions of the site, by respecting its weather context and by embracing the nature that is already on there.

Maritime Museum Extension in Ílhavo, Portugal by ARX

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Article source: ARX 

The codfish aquarium connects two other buildings and sets and a complex built ensemble, united around the subjects of the sea and fishing. In this unusual structure, the Maritime Museum is the place of memory, the Aquarium the space for marine life and CIEMAR, installed in the old renovated school, the research center for the activities of man linked to the sea.
In articulating these three units the building is both an autonomous urban equipment that relates to the context and defines a public space, but it is also a building-path, which develops in a spiral around the tank as it connects the Museum to the old school.
