Sarasota County Beach Pavilions in Florida by Sweet Sparkman Architects

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Article source: Sweet Sparkman Architects

This project is a series of commissioned beach-side park restroom pavilions. Each of these pavilions share a common design signature. The design team used an abstract version of sea-oats, vegetation synonymous with the gulf beaches of Sarasota, to create a continuous theme in the façade. The abstract use of ‘sea-oats’ as a screen element was used to unite the ramp with the building rather than having the ramp appear to be an appendage to the design. The wood ramp system is suspended from the cast-in-place concrete roof slab with stainless steel rods. As one ascends the ramp, the natural preserve encloses the building volumes which are oriented to provide enhanced views of the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay.

ZAMNESS | Office Space in Barcelona, Spain by nookarchitects

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Article source: nookarchitects

We had been trying for one, very long year to change our place of work and after visiting several apartments and establishments, we suddenly came across the opportunity of developing a project for a shared office with a closely known client.  On this occasion time was our main challenge- we had to finish an interior design project, obtain estimated costs, manage the construction works and move in just 3 months.  This is an extremely limited timescale for the city of Barcelona.

The Railway Site in Horsens, Denmark by AFR ThinkingUrban

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Article source: AFR ThinkingUrban

All too often modern cities are divided up into single use zones like housing or education, or industry. Yet the most successful older communities throughout the world are almost all mixed uses. In addition, the way we move and interact in modern thinking is divided up into a kind of traffic apartheid – walking, cycling, driving.

A Coruña for rent? in Spain by Egue y Seta

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Article source: Egue y Seta

Looking for a flat to rent? Read between the lines:

Spacious and bright = empty and painted in white.
Great potential = really needs to be renovated!
Charming = Old, really old!
Functional or cosy = small.
For couples: small
Singles: really small.
Ideal for students: barely habitable
Diaphanous Loft: You´ll sleep in the kitchen
Arrange a visit: Not even in photographs it looks ok
Parquet Flooring : The rest of the finishes is not worth commenting.

The Real state market for rental housing is highly competitive, full of vices and most of its advertisement pieces sound like siren calls. None of these, nevertheless, lack explanation: Property owners are bound to invest with caution, they need to hit the target of the particular taste of a potential but undetermined client, but most importantly they seem to be obliged to prescribe furniture and finishes tested against the most indolent of lifestyles.

Villa G in Sorengo, Switzerland by SCAPE

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Article source: SCAPE

The G family home in Sorengo, on the edge of Lugano in Ticino, is the category of villa that Palladio-1 put forward as a contrast with the town house.  The site, a long narrow strip of land on a steep slope, is part of a hilly area, bordered on its short sides by a private road and another property.  On the long sides it is fringed by another site being developed and a wood that is legislatively bound.  To enjoy the fine view of the mountains and part of the lake, the ground level must by raised by three metres.

Persona in Seoul, Korea by ARCHIUM

Friday, July 10th, 2015
Article source: ARCHIUM

Does the shape of space have to have inevitable order? What meanings do the basic conditions such as history and shape of land and rules and forms which determines the space have? Is the promise to observe rules valid? Furthermore, does such thing exist? What is universal value? Is it implied consent made by ordinary perspective to deal with them in a familiar and convenient way?
