Lordelo Pharmacy in Vila Real, Portugal by JOSÉ CARLOS CRUZ – ARQUITECTO

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Article source: JOSÉ CARLOS CRUZ – ARQUITECTO

The Pharmacy is located in Vila Real, in the centre north of Portugal and is part of a peripheral zone of the city where the environment does not have a consolidated and uniform image. In the absence of external references, it was chosen to create a building with an abstract and neutral character, reinforced by the absence of openings. With oval shape footprint, the two floors are fully aluminum coated corrugated and perforated. The only direct opening to the outside is the main entrance that gives access to the sales area. By changing the interior light and the symbol of pharmacy, the building gains dynamic, allowing the image variation from day to night. The store not only sells medicines but also has its own laboratory for compounding pharmacy.

Archaeological space in Daroca, Spain by sergio sebastián_architect

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Article source: sergio sebastián_architect

The ground of the historical villa of Daroca folds and lifts to show the richness of its past to the public!

The surface layer rises like a great cover revealing its core from the street, the valuable archaeological remains which have appeared under it. The building is generated from the urban fabric, as a new public space which covers and protects the history of this city and the representative character of the regional institution founded above this former place.

O Dos Vasconcelos is a mixed-use complex organized around a central, open-air public space with a circular plan. The parking area, the apartments and commercial spaces, and the hotel volume are all visible from the entrance level. The relation between the underground and the aboveground spaces, and the concentration of different functions in carefully crafted pieces, lends the complex a mechanical character –appropriate for a predominantly industrial city– which reminiscent of the early work of James Stirling.

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Article source: mdu architetti

The Prato Lofts, designed by the italian architecture studio mdu architetti, is an investigation on the deep and complex relationships between the public space of the city and the intimacy of the private space of living. The Prato Lofts interpret the theme, generating quite inner spaces for the everyday life related to themselves and to the mutations of the sky, that are concealed from the urban chaos by a silent concrete wall.

SCHOOL IN TARRAGONA by Batlle and Roig architects

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

Article source: Batlle and Roig architects

Nowadays designing an education facility, either a school o a high school, means working with a series of preset and regulated parameters by the administrations commissioning the project. These parameters go from the qualification and quantification of the program, to the election of the structural and construction methods to erect the building. This design constraint favors undoubtedly the speed of the design process and the construction of the building, and has become over time a typological system that delves into the concept of generic architecture, that has seems so appreciable at the moment due to economical reasons.

DMB House in Montagna, Italy by act_romegialli

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

Article source: act_romegialli

The project is located on the ground  of the alluvial cone of the Davaglione stream in Montagna, Valtellina, Italy.

To the east of the plot there are the public street and the wall of the stream bank, to the south there is a private house built departing from the right distances from the border, so the quality view is completely obstructed on this side.

Nau Royal Hotel in São Sebastião, Brazil by GCP Arquitetos

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

Article source: GCP Arquitetos

The Nau Royal building design was based upon very cleary assumptions: functional programing, simple and clear lines tipology, but with a strong formal expression, connection with its spetacular surroundings and sustainability. The party consideres the existing natural landscape and views as a key element to the project, therefore, adopting modern brazilian architecture principles, such as the use of large openings protected by “brise-soleil balconies”, framing from one side of the building, the mountains covered by rain forest and from the opposite side, the Cambury beach and the Atlantic ocean.
