SJZ House in Paraná, Brazil by ZIZ ARQUITETURA E INTERIORES

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Article source: ZIZ ARQUITETURA E INTERIORES

After years living in China and Switzerland, the owners of this home decided to settle in Londrina. This Brazilian and Portuguese / Swiss couple wanted to provide a quiet, tranquil home, in which to raise their two children, away from busy urban centers. With this in mind and after much searching, they chose a house close to both quality schools and other important community services.

Unfortunately, the house didn’t meet the family’s expectations so they decided to do a major renovation to both the internal and exterior areas of the home.

El Laberinto in Mexico by Archinature Workshop

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Article source: Archinature Workshop

A children’s museum in essence should be a space that encourages children’s mind and produce a sense of discovery by playing. That’s why the concept of Labyrinth of Crete arises as the starting point for the Children’s Museum – Iztapalapa.

Wedding and municipal room of Jacou in France by NBJ Architectes

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Article source: NBJ Architectes

The city of Jacou’s wedding hall and municipal room project needed to be rethought at the crossroads of several axes and scales. The aim was to change the use of an existing building located in the town center. In order to fully integrate these new functions and to establish a strong link between the city hall and the marriage hall, a consistency of materiality has been set up in this project. The interventions on the ground and the facades have been proportionate to the respect of an harmonious work, focussing on the balance between heritage and contemporary creation. Thus, this new program is associated with a generous public space accessible to everyone.

CASA RANCO in Lago Ranco, Chile by Elton+Leniz Arquitectos Asociados

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Article source: Elton+Leniz Arquitectos Asociados 

The house is located in a privileged area of ground in terms of views, orientation, etc.. so the shape of the house adapts to the existing, respecting the existence of a large rock cliff and a number of native trees. Both the shape of the house as its program does not serve the purpose of intervening the natural landscape. that is why the house is composed of two volumes connected by a bridge way around the rock and adapt to the position of the trees.

Altana R & D Center in Mumbai, India by MALIK Architecture

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Article source: MALIK Architecture

The plot itself filled with lush large trees and its profile have dictated the evolution of the design concept. A careful study of the site, levels and the root structure of the trees leaves limited areas for development of the R&D center.  It is this study that first drove us into demolishing the existing house along with the following reasons:

  1. Aesthetically unsuitable for a modern R&D lab.
  2. Large area available without trees.
  3. Possibility of construction of a basement + upper floors to optimize built-up area.

Gearwheel factory in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Ronald Janssen Architecten

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Article source: Ronald Janssen Architecten

The mere fact that the gearwheel factory is still there, right in the old centre of Amsterdam, makes the building special. This warehouse from the early 20th century, with its sawtooth roof and brick walls overgrown with ivy, is like a green oasis in the city. The building has now been transformed by architect Ronald Janssen in cooperation with Donald Osborne Architect into twelve residences, in commission from real estate developer Buro Amsterdam.

Modern Atrium House in Belmont, California by Klopf Architecture

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Article source: Klopf Architecture

The owners, inspired by mid-century modern architecture, hired Klopf Architecture to help them decide: remodel and add to a 1940s modern house or start fresh with an Eichler-inspired 21st-Century, energy efficient, all new home that would work for their family of three. With the decision made to start over, Klopf and the owners planned a home that follows the gentle slope of the hillside while the overarching post-and-beam roof above provides an unchanging datum line. Every square foot of the house remains close to the ground creating a sense of connection with nature. The resulting increase in ceiling height with each step-down helps create the hierarchy of the public spaces (living room is tallest, then dining, then kitchen, then entry). A rational layout based on four-foot-wide beam bays brings a calm composure to the space while the central stacked stone fireplace chimney shooting up through a skylight contrasts that with some fanfare.
