Casa DTF in Jalisco, México by Elías Rizo Arquitectos

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

Article source: Elías Rizo Arquitectos

Casa DTF was built within the confines of a private residential community and raised similar privacy issues. In the case of Casa DTF the house program was resolved in three levels. The program distribution allows for a clear separation of private and public functions. The basement houses all service areas and the garage; the ground floor, which rises half a story above the street level, includes all public areas such as kitchen, dining and living spaces as well as a studio. The second level includes four bedrooms.

Log architectes’ housing, office and commercial program deals with a specific corner condition by joining the street-side facade to the gable wall, turning it into a facade in its own right.

Article source: Mario Corea Arquitectura 

The recently inaugurated Subacute Hospital in Mollet del Vallès is an example of how a hospital constructed in the 1950s and 60s, which had fallen into disuse, can be successfully recycled to meet the current and future challenges emerging in healthcare. The renovation project was based on simple and effective interventions that were practical as well as functional, resulting in a low-cost, energy-efficient hospital that re-assumes an active role in the day-to-day life of the city.
