Sagarana House in São Paulo, Brazil by Rocco Arquitetos

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Article source: Rocco Arquitetos

This project is a renovation of a 1940’s house in the city of São Paulo. The client, a single woman, wanted a more free an fluid space, so almost all of the first floor internal walls were removed. In order to do so, without having to include any sort of beam (iron or concrete) under the slab, a suspended beam was installed on top of the second floor (under the roof). It was attached to a built in rod. So, part of the first floor structure was held by this hidden beam.

Puinhuis in Ghent, Belgium by FELT with 360 architecten

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Article source: FELT

At the outskirts of the quaint Belgian city of Ghent we encounter an idiosyncratic renovation of a classic Flemish townhouse. The original building was wrapped within a new envelope, delineating the new volume. Carrying three facades, the building is situated on the end of a row of houses. This unique position provides the dwelling three different opportunities of sunlight, a 270° panoramic view and its very own secret garden.

SLOVENIAN BOOK CENTER IN TRIESTE, Italy by SoNo Arhitekti

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Article source: SoNo Arhitekti

The design won the 1st prize in the invited architectural competition for the Slovenian book center in Trieste, Italy.

The proximity of the Oberdan Piazza and Fabiani’s National Hall has encouraged us to look more closely to the symbolic ties that are important for the Slovene minority living in Trieste. A hint that would only symbolically  show itself derives from Fabiani’s masterfully designed facade’s decoration. Decorative geometric element has been broken down and transformed into a modern structure, which represents itself in the basic pattern of the bookshelves.
