Malpica Harbour in A Coruña, Spain by CREUSeCARRASCO arquitectos

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Article source: CREUSeCARRASCO arquitectos


This harbour redevelopment project, developed in conjunction with the Port Authority, is primarily focused on zones where public space can be created. The harbour was analysed as a place for interrelations and shelter, with the appeal of its fishing industry and its views; a unique location that makes its presence felt in the town with ramps, stairs and balconies. The linear nature of the horseshoe-shaped harbour is exploited to the utmost with a promenade, accessible at an intermediate level that runs along the cliff, resting on outcrops and wall tops which inhabit it in a sense.

Vandijk Fashion Store in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by OOZE

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Article source: OOZE

The VANDIJK FASHION STORE lies on the ground floor of a 19th century Dutch style city building in a typically very long and narrow space.

The shop presents itself as an extension of the street rather than a separate luxury unit. A frame-less pane of glass contributes to this blurring of the threshold between inside and out. It sets the interior space as an extension of the street-scape.

Polikatoikea in Oporto, Portugal by Filipe Magalhaes and Ana Luisa Soares

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Article source: Filipe Magalhaes and Ana Luisa Soares

‘Polikatoikea’ seeks a compromise between a greek rule (polikatoika) and a swedish philosophy (ikea). The project is an (almost) politic move that seeks the densification of the city through a low-cost construction targeting a young and unattached client. (On a conceptual level) the project attempts to provide an idea that fights the ‘desertification’ where, in face of an unstable economic conjecture, the low cost appears as a possible (and affordable) solution. Architect: Filipe Magalhaes and Ana Luisa Soares.

  • Location: Oporto, Portugal
  • Competition: Open ideas competition (1st prize)
