James Gandolfini died on the 19th of June 2013, a few weeks before the 47th Montreux Jazz Festival. He was the leading character of one of HBO’s best series: The Sopranos. He embodied the complete range of clichés of the Italian American mafia developed beforehand by great film directors such as Martin Scorsese or Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfellas in 1990 for the first, The Godfather in 1972 for the second).

House IV in Eindhoven, The Netherlands by De Bever Architecten

Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Article source: De Bever Architecten

The house is situated on a corner lot in the typical 30’s district ‘de Elzent’ against the natural landscape of the river Dommel valley, in the center of Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The existing main house is relatively small in structure, however the lot size is sufficient enough to resist an carefully threaded extension. An extension where extra comfort is added to the existing house.

Renovation of Casa Dorda in Murcia, Spain by Martin Lejarraga Architect

Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Article source: Martin Lejarraga Architect

The city of Cartagena is full of scars that have marked its layers at varying depths (“the puff pastry city”, Carlos García Vázquez) throughout the city’s history.

And it is among these layers and between party walls where one must attempt to preserve the life of the city, through interventions involving the renovation, revitalization and regeneration of the residential urban weave, of the dwelling, which, in sum, is the use that maintains and accelerates the pace of the city.

The Project is located in an existing condo in La Planicie, overlooking the Golf. Importantly, one of the family members is disabled, so the project should not have any barriers and integrate the lives of others, without altering the aesthetics and function. All in equal conditions. The project is articulated through a 1.50 axle wide circulation, containing all functions in two volumes.

If you digit +31° 16’ 9.45”, +121°27’ 14.93” on Google Maps, a zenith scale view will appear of a rectangular building, characterized by a central patio with pedestrian bridges crossing it and a long flamboyant red wall which acts as a barrier to separate the internal areas from the noise of the elevated road which runs opposite.
