SN HOUSE in Londrina, Brazil by Studio GT

Saturday, August 2nd, 2014

Article source: Studio GT

Perfect for the leisure time of a large family, this house in Londrina, Brazil seems like its floating in the air. That is due to the volumetry and the large spans without pillars designed by the architect Guilherme Torres.

From the unevenness of nearly 3 meters of the ground, it came the idea of a residence with a cantilever main floor to reserve more space for the leisure area on the lower level. “I’ve docked the house on the slope” says the architect Guilherme Torres, “By doing that, I’ve released the space underneath it to the garden, the pool and the living rooms”. The irregular relief was won by a monumental block of prestressed concrete containing cables of high strength steel driven and trapped inside the slab itself. This feature allowed the span of 17.5 meters long besides the 4.5 meters cantilever volume beyond the wall that mark boundaries of the leisure area.

Art Basics for Children in Schaerbeek, Belgium by HUB

Saturday, August 2nd, 2014

Article source: HUB

The ‘Fabriek’, located on a corner in Schaerbeek bordering Noordwijk is renovated into the home base for the organisation Art Basics for Children. The location of the old industrial complex is characteristic of the friction between the corporate office environment of Noordwijk and the heterogeneous urban fabric of Schaerbeek. The underlying goal of the renovation of the ‘Fabriek’ is to allow space for ABC to work in this urban field of tension between the corporate and socio-cultural environment surrounding the site.

N.B.K. Residence (2) in Beirut, Lebanon by Bernard Khoury / DW5

Saturday, August 2nd, 2014

Article source: Bernard Khoury

Located at the ninth and last level of the Plot # 2251 project which we conceived in 2008  and for which construction ended in 2013, this three-storey apartment is articulated through an independent structure cappingthe building. Structurally, the apartment only shares the building’s vertical circulation core, as well as the perimeter along which its two peripheral walls lie. Beyond the ninth level, the structure of this residence becomes autonomous, rendering it morphologically detached from the edifice. The result is what resembles an independent house placed atop a building, rather than what is commonly known as a penthouse or roof level apartment.
