46 SOCIAL DWELLINGS FOR RENT AND STORES in Seville, Spain by gabriel verd arquitectos

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Article source: gabriel verd arquitectos

The project was built in an area of residential expansion in the outer suburb of Seville, in the south of Spain.

The small size of the plot and the high housing density that was required suggested a court-type solution. The patio played a key role as an area for social interaction and made it possible to achieve the objective of giving the 46 apartments (2 or 3 bedrooms) two prospects – on the inner courtyard and on the street.

Sport Hall Enoseis in Saint Thonan, France by ENO architectes

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Article source: ENO architectes

Get to the point, minimal sport hall : simple program and tight budget. 
The problem is clear from the beginning of the story : build an ambitious fitness gym with few ways. 
Here, no stylistic device, no free graphic effect and, all in all, nothing exceptional.
The common sense, and only the common sense, as the line of conduct of conception.

Lideta Market in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia by Vilalta Arquitectura

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Article source: Vilalta Arquitectura

Xavier Vilalta´s major project in Ethiopia, Lideta Mercato, has finally topped out in Addis Ababa and is set to open this summer.

The Lideta Mercato was intended to be a shopping mall just like many others in the city of Addis Ababa. A rigorous analysis has identified the main issues of the existing malls in the city, which are commonly built using glazing structures. As a result, the buildings suffer uncomfortable thermal conditions and over-illumination in the interiors. The observation of the Old Mercato, the largest open air market in Africa, was an inspiration to redefine the program of the building, conceiving a multistory contemporary market instead of a conventional shopping mall based on large shops.

Villa Inga in Bratislava, Slovakia by ARCHITEKTI ŠEBO LICHÝ

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Article source: ARCHITEKTI ŠEBO LICHÝ

This is how the architects live. House of Slovak architect Igor Lichý is the emanation of his idea of the perfect living.

Approach to the creation

Despite the fact that many architects understand their houses as a manifesto of their ideas about architecture and they are trying to implement everything they did not pass by their clients, architect Igor Lichý chose a rather conservative approach. An important criterion was the timelessness. This was reflected in the “Modernistic” design, which he hopes will be actual in several years. Another criterion was the constructional simplicity. This resulted in simple shapes without complicated details. They used classic materials with an emphasis on durability, as burnt brick, mineral wool and minimum of plasterboard. Great emphasis was placed on the functionality so that house can adapt to any changes in the family. On the ground floor he created a guest room with barrier free access and contact with the garden, which may in the future serve as a separate dwelling unit for either parent.
