Article source: MM18 ARCHITECTS

Ramona is a restaurant with bar and pocket show spaces, located on the ground floor of a building at a very famous corner downtown. São Paulo
The program is distributed in 3 levels (basement, ground floor and mezzanine) and the aesthetic (concept?) emerged from the existing structure that has been preserved, the slab grid that was hidden under a plaster lining.

TORREÃO HOUSE in Brasília, Brazil by Bloco Arquitetos

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

Article source: Bloco Arquitetos

The house is located in a residential area in Brasília, far away from the urban center and occupied by small gated communities. This part of the city still presents some characteristics of the original countryside that has originated it, with wide open spaces and native vegetation. The young couple´s desire to have a house that would integrate itself with the surrounding landscape was the starting point of the project. Our objective was to use the architecture to highlight the landscape, not the other way around. An existing natural preservation area in the south and west sides of the plot and its strong descending slope towards the backside have both directed our response. A big existing artificial landfill located three meters below the street level was extended using the soil that was digged out for the construction of the house. We used the resulting space to place all the internal areas in only one level. That decision has allowed the house to remain partially hidden below the street level, providing an unblocked view to the landscape.

MR_DESIGN OFFICE in Shibuya, Japan by Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Article source: Jo Nagasaka/Schemata Architects

We designed an office for MR_DESIGN, as known as a graphic designer Kenjiro Sano. The interior space is defined by the layout of the furniture, which has been meticulously designed. This enables the optimum use of the spacious interior, as it does not need partitions. Even in the meeting space, where partitions are usually required, we have established a free-flowing space by the use of umbrellas. These are commonly used as light reflectors, but they also function as sonic-reflection collectors that enable people to have conversations without partitions. This lighting system was designed for the editing of graphics in professional studios, its light-diffusion effect preventing shadows being cast onto the top of the table. As a further iconic element of the office, we have designed slopes connecting the interior spaces.

TherMitte by Nissen & Wentzlaff Architects BSA SIA AG

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Article source:  Nissen & Wentzlaff Architects BSA SIA AG

Competition, 2004 – first place: There are three structures: a four-storey residential building along the Hauptstrasse, with a walkway which reduces noise levels, a separate structure within this unit to house the banking premises, and a three-storey residential unit parallel to the first at the rear of the plot. This layout creates an internal courtyard, which can be accessed through two generous entrances from the two neighboring streets, which also serve as entrances to the residential units behind and to the services housed on the ground floor. The buildings are enclosed in wooden latticework, creating a filigreed and calm membrane between the internal and external spaces.
