Article source: Moriyuki Ochiai Architects

It is a interior of kindergarten which is specific for art education.

The plan proposes a multi-purpose space to carry out regular nursery activities as well as special activities for both children and adults such as concerts, performances, exhibitions and workshops for children.

Therefore, by installing playground equipment shaped like a big mountain, which prompt various activities, I aimed to create a space where children and adults can expand their imagination.

House in Pedrogão, Torres Novas, Portugal by Paulo Henrique Durão

Friday, September 20th, 2013

Article source: Paulo Henrique Durão


I take Saramago once again: “My relation with time is, above all, very specific….when trying to express it graphically; I understand time as a large screen, a huge screen, where every single event is projected, including the oldest and the most recent. On that screen, everything is side by side in a kind of chaos as if time was compressed and flattened on that surface; as if events, facts and people were shown and assembled chaotically instead of being diachronically assembled, and we were meant to find a meaning.” (1)

Friday, September 20th, 2013

Article source: STARH Stanislavov Architects

The purpose of the architectural project is to observe and visualize the potential of the property where the Medical University of Varna is situated. The need for new functional areas and aesthetic norms missing in the current building designed and built not for medical school is the heart of this research. The building of the Medical University of Varna is situated in an urban residential area in a square between Tsar Asen Str., General Gurko Str., Marin Drinov Str.  And Ivan Aksakov Str. in the vicinity to a park area.

Ghose House in Thallagapura, Bangalore by Gaurav Roy Choudhury Architects

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Article source: Gaurav Roy Choudhury Architects

The Ghose Residence sits on the outskirts of a burgeoning Bangalore. It looks over a valley which once was a lake, and will soon become embroiled in construction activity.

The Ghose Residence sits pretty on a rocky hill, with ‘private’ greenery all reveling in the ‘new urban home’; one which opens up to recoil, welcomes to fend off, and builds to sustain. The dichotomy of our escapist urban premise is not lost on it.

HOUSE IN Monticelli Brusati, Italy by Studio Artec

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Article source: Studio Artec

We like thinking about this house as a transposition on our territory of a Californian Case Study House of the 1950s and 60s. The structure is of course adapted to the local climate and landscape, but the spirit that generated this design is that of simplicity and of being self-confident with the place as it had been for those so famous houses.

Apartment in Moscow, Russia by ITHAKA – Architecture and design

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Article source: ITHAKA – Architecture and design

The main concept was a rational approach to the use of expensive housing in Moscow. The future residents chose a minimalistic interior with open space instead of separated living and dining rooms and predominant white color for the walls. The use of organic materials such as travertine of milky color and American walnut wood of chocolate shade ensure an elegant, yet welcoming feel throughout.
