In order to build a house the client has bought the last empty plot at the Ploče quarter in Dubrovnik. The steep site is of irregular shape, and it was divided with a road by the change in land zoning plans.

Neo – Fa by Pascal Arquitectos

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos

Neo, a word derivated from the old Greek meaning new. This prefix commonly used in Spanish take us immediately to avant-garde movements; those names that are preceded by this word always look forward, to renew, to bring ways never seen before or break out with previous forms of art. That is exactly what we pretended to do with this proposal. This work consists of not only presenting just an architectural project or concept, we go beyond by generating a new architectural system which allows typification, standardization, prefabrication, multifunctionality and polyvalency.

329 prepared dc-motors, cotton balls, toluene tank, 2013 in Dottikon, Switzerland by Zimoun

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Article source: Studio Zimoun

Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena in Zimoun’s minimalist constructions effortlessly reverberates.

Casa Itaim – Events in Sao Paulo, Brazil by St Arquitetura e Consultoria

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Article source: St Arquitetura e Consultoria

We developed the design of this elegant event space in SP in three essential concepts: good taste, sophistication and integration with nature. Therefore, your outdoor garden, which can be viewed from any angle of the Great Hall, becomes a major attraction of the place. The “transparency” of areas, including the integration and flexibility to adapt to each space a specific event, were the major concern.

CORE Modern Homes by Batay-Csorba Architects

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Article source: Batay-Csorba Architects

Core Modern Homes combines environmental performance with a constantly evolving visual experience into and out of the townhouse project. The building’s facades are animated with a series of large perspectivally oriented windows that work to maximize natural light and ventilation into the depths of each floor, while extending visual limits of the house to embrace the primary view corridors of the site. The diagonally shifted and cantilevered planes of the facade provide dynamic visual movement along the two primary streets.

Article source: Tabuenca & Leache, Arquitectos

This was a project to restore an old sixteenth-century palatial mansion, which was in ruins and had undergone major renovations and alterations over time, particularly during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Through an extensive cleaning and restoration process, the building´s original appearance and size resurfaced, exposing the old wood-paneled ceilings that were hidden behind false ones throughout all of the rooms.
