Juan Apartment in Semnan, Iran by L.E.D Architects

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Article source: L.E.D Architects

The client demanded a design for a residential apartment in 3 storeys, located in a middle-class district of Semnan city. With respect to negotiations with the client and in order to create a maximal usable area, the design switched from an ordinary apartment block of two separate units to two separate triplex and duplex units, because the client was interested in level differences in one single unit.

Alexandria by Geometrium DSGN

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Article source: Geometrium DSGN

The client wanted the apartment slightly bring back the idea of a yacht, but without the “gay and lifebuoys.” It was important to choose materials which are available in stores or which you should not wait long, and make the project on time because the customer need to change house (is better like this in english) as soon as possible .

Planning of the apartment is very successful, we almost did not change it, just removed the wall separating the kitchen area from the living room, replaced by a sliding partition the entire length of the opening in the cloakroom and moved the opening in the master’s bathroom and WC.

Kitchener Central Library in Canada by LGA Architectural Partners

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Article source: LGA Architectural Partners 

Kitchener is one of Canada’s fastest-growing communities, catalyzed by its universities and high-tech industry. Built in 1962, the city’s Main Branch Public Library was not only showing the effects of everyday wear and tear, it had reached an age which its major systems and components needed replacement. The library was designed at a time when energy costs were low and awareness of greenhouse gas emissions did not exist. The librarians tasked LGA Architectural Partners to preserve and expand the original structure while making it sustainable, accessible and elegantly robust—a must for a building that serves 107,000 cardholders. They also asked that the building’s design support the transforming library mandate from “reading and researching” to “meeting, making and active learning”.

The Shadow Spaces in Delhi, India by RENESA ARCHITECTURE DESIGN INTERIORS

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Article source: RENESA ARCHITECTURE DESIGN INTERIORS

Death

Death is unknown and it is final. The rituals of death and the spaces they are conducted in, have a deep significance to the living as well as the dead. For it is through these rituals and these spaces that the rare intersection of life and death takes place, where the living are forced to encounter and contemplate the mortality and fragility of life while simultaneously putting them in touch with the sublime of the absolute. These spaces and rituals are thus, simultaneously for the living and dead, public yet intimately private and personal.

Linea show room in Vilnius, Lithuania by Arches

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Article source: Arches

LINEA – an office  and  the showroom for exclusive quality and interior decoration materials.

The building is located in the historic district Žvėrynas, the former summer resort and recently part of an old town of Vilnius. Rich with old wooden houses and natural vegetation it is considered one of the most preserved historic small scale homesteads of the city. This is what has become the main challenge – to face the strict architectural and urban protection requirements, by the same time to create a contemporary, memorable, open and inviting object for the public use.

“It is important for children to like the Maison de la Petite Enfance, for them to feel comfortable there, free yet safe. It has to be gentle and tender with them, participate in their education, help them find their marks and stimulate their imaginations” – The elected officials of Lieusaint

Amerland Road in London, England by Giles Pike Architects

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Article source: Giles Pike Architects 

The prospect of building a small stand-alone new house on this very restricted garage plot seemed like an improbability until we started to explore the site in three dimensions. We concluded that if we turned the house upside down and arranged the bedrooms and bathrooms on a lower ground floor, with the main living rooms on the ground floor and upper mezzanine levels, then a workable and viable plan form started to emerge. Our brief was to build the largest house possible on this 60 m2 site, which was located at the end of a garden on Velonia Gardens and next to an electricity substation on Amerland Road, with very limited access for excavation. In essence we designed the house in section rather than in plan ie the plan form was generated by the section, and the section through the house allows sunlight to penetrate deep into the interior spaces. Although the house is small in scale, it is not small in stature – in a manner of speaking it is a house that punches above its weight! When you look at the house from the outside it looks remarkably small, but once inside it has the most extraordinary light and airy feel. The positioning of the staircase, central in the house, and being a design feature in its own right encourages the eye to travel up to the mezzanine floor level and down to the basement level, therefore allowing one to perceive the three dimensional quality of the house. On the ground floor, which comprises the entrance off Amerland Road and the kitchen, dining and living areas, one is aware of the space above and space below. The staircase is a relatively lightweight fabrication in steel and glass, with open treads in hard wood, and has a delicacy and a lightness of touch, which echoes the way the house as a whole has been conceived.
