One-Story House in the City Montreal, Canada by Anik Péloquin architecte

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Article source: v2com

There are a few one-storey houses in almost every residential Montreal neighborhoods. They house single families and stand out from the dense setting from the beginning of the 20th century. This 900 sq.ft.-house is located at the corner of 2 busy streets in Ahuntsic. The size of the property and tight budget did not make it possible to build an extension. The interior was therefore reconfigured to fit a third room and meet the needs of this family of 4.

PLAY-TIME APARTMENTS in Madrid, Spain by Elena Orte y Guillermo Sevillano (SUMA)

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Article source: Elena Orte y Guillermo Sevillano (SUMA)

The PLAY- TIME apartments is a project of seven units for short term rental in Ciudad Lineal, Madrid. The developer chose the place because he was looking for an oasis in the city. As architects , we proposed to intensify that condition. The movement of the building gives each housing with its own terrace and the construction system provides its own garden in the perimeter. The units, two per floor , are independently assembled on a vertical core -with elevator and services- so they can be oriented freely, limited only by urban conditions and the spiral staircase that climbs around the perimeter, to which they turn their backs.
