Casa Francavilla in Modica, Italy by Studio GUM

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Article source:  Studio GUM

Modica, like other historical centers of the Val di Noto, owes its special urban configuration to the uncommon nature of the area, combined with the various phenomena of human activity. Many of the homes found in the old part of town are attached homes, and are often an extension to the ancient caves, inhabited since prehistoric times.

Collective housing in Torre Baró, Spain by Josep Miàs

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Article source: Josep Miàs

Topographically, the plot, with a pentagonal shape, is in the middle of a slope. In order to take advantage of this situation, the owners suggested a programme of an underground parking, commercial facilities on the ground floor and housing on the upper levels. The project is surrounded by other housing buildings, so it is, in fact, in the middle.

Article source: TERRAPLAN-PARTNERS

Gostivar is a city in north-west Macedonia, away from the capital of Macedonia of only 60 km.

With the development of the city of Gostivar, proportionally are developing and emerging new human needs that impact on the concept of building that would occur in the city.

Manhattan Micro Loft in New York by Specht Harpman

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Article source: Specht Harpman

This project involved the radical transformation of a tiny, awkward apartment at the top of a six-story building.  With only 425 square feet of floor area, but a ceiling height of over 24 feet, the new design exploits the inherent sectional possibilities, and creates a flowing interior landscape that dissolves the notion of distinct “rooms.”
