Casa SFA in Torreón, Mexico by Arqmov Workshop

Monday, September 11th, 2017

Article source: Arqmov Workshop

The SFA house is a refurbishment project that is faithful to the client’s specific requirements. Arqmov Workshop initially suggested a brand new project, given the previous (quite unfortunate) refurbishment work on the property. However, the nostalgia of its owner led the firm to reconsider adapting his childhood home to suit his new family – with a wife and three children. Given more than 30 years since the construction of the house, the decision was made to strip its original structure bare, to use the house’s spatial potential and to take advantage of its location opposite to a golf course. The dividing floor of the residence was demolished to create a large double height volume with large windows to the rear and interior facade to the garden and the swimming pool. Due to the importance placed on light intake in this project, a void was opened on the wall supporting the stairs towards the bar area through which a shaft of light pierces the space.

Article source: Hanna Michelson

Bergaliv Landscape hotel has completed the Loft house (Lofthuset), the first out of four planned getaways on the hillside of Åsberget mountain in the north of Sweden.

The 33 foot tall house is constructed in two stories, 14 sqm each. The lower, a sheltered room in close relation to the surrounding forrest. The upper: a roofed outdoor space stripped from walls allowing an uninterrupted view over the valley below. The dualism of the site with its closeness to nature combined with the expansive view has set the rules for the small house and is expressed in the two contrasting spaces sharing the purpose of providing a sanctuary and a peaceful vantage point for the visitors.

Daodao coffee in Chengdu, China by HAD Architects& EPOS

Friday, September 8th, 2017

Article source: HAD Architects& EPOS 

Daodao Coffee locates in the center of Intime City Commercial District in Chengdu. The total area of this two-floor cafe is around 65 square meters. And the designers tried to make it an ideal space to relax.

In our opinions, design should start with exact questions, and a good design is one of the answers. Our question about this project is how to make different customers with diverse needs find their place in this 56-square-meter area with a height of 5.6 meters and a non-natural-light second floor. We tried to solve this problem from the changeability of small spaces and the integration of material and light.
