Casa 3 in Acapulco, México by At103

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Article source: At103

The Project consists on the restoration and enlargement of an existing house in the old part of the city of Acapulco, Mexico. In the 50’s and 60’s, Acapulco was a Hollywood Town, full of glamour and money, where all the rich and famous— from John Wayne to John F Kennedy and Maria Felix—would meet, where good taste and modern architecture blended with the beautiful landscape of the bay and the cliffs. This has changed over the last decades: the city grew old, and no new infrastructure emerged, except in the classic area, to preserve its former contemporary city atmosphere.

Conversion of st.Lukes Chapel in Bern, Switzerland by Morscher ArchItekten

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Article source: Morscher ArchItekten

The project involved converting a former chapel built in 1924 in Art Deco style in a Bern neighbourhood and totally defaced in a 1970s renovation into two new apartments. In order to keep the ground floor free of supports and retain the high church windows, the upper apartment was hung as a concrete cube in the former double-storey  nave.

Modern house in Vilagarcía de Arousa, Spain by Nan arquitectos

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Article source: Nan arquitectos 

“I would like a modern and cheap house for lease”

During the first meeting with the sponsor, the requirements for the house were clear, but a “modern house” is not the best way to start with the project definition. We were looking for a low- cost house that could satisfy the requirements from an ephemeral user. For that, we’ve chosen the simplicity of the design, distribution and construction.

workhouse de scheepvaart in Schoten, Belgium by HUB

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Article source: HUB

The workhouse is part of a complex situated alongside the canal which has a very original and distinct character thanks to its special typology and materialisation. Unlike traditional industrial ‘boxes’, the workhouse’s programmatic mix is rather peculiar: it includes a garage, workshops, offices and a caretaker’s residence.

Reconstruction of the Square in Frydlan, Czech Republic by balda—architekt & atakarchitekti

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Article source: balda—architekt & atakarchitekti

The main idea behind the design of the reconstructed square in Frýdlant was to create an open, unobstructed public space – a square that allows residents and visitors to enjoy all types of activities.

The use of three types of paving tiles, two types of stone and the patterns in which these were laid differentiates various types of spaces on the square. With the exception of the parking lot, the square was realised as a barrier-free space.
