DMMRC – Dubai Maritime Museum & Research Centre in United Arab Emirates by Studio Niko Kapa

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Relating to both the sea and the city and in constant dialogue between them, the building is an extension of the city to the sea and vice-versa. Conceived as a continuation and a transition through the wide public space, the building dives into the ocean and merges with it. It develops as a triangular sharp form, which concentrates the public routes to the museum, through an inviting shape that draws visitors to the entrance and distributes them to the interior.

Casa LOMA in Cundinamarca, Colombia by David Macias Arquitectura & Urbanismo

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Article source: David Macias Arquitectura & Urbanismo 

Can a home with endless view the landscape interweave both spaces that create privacy and features an open house?

Thus the challenge of the project encourages research about the different types of traditional architecture of the garden and recreation. For this, the architects used the analog conceptualization of Urdimbre as generating element of the project to develop a design that understand their environment in terms of implementation, physical morphology of the land and architectural program.

Confraria Kero in Porto Alegre, Brazil by Kali Arquitetura

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Article source: Kali Arquitetura

It all started with a food truck that used to attend events around the city. The business, which was baptized of ‘Confraria Kero Food Truck’, has grown to the point that the partners decided to expand it. The idea was to offer the customers a permanent address and more physical space. The decision between keeping or not the words ‘food truck’ in the name of the business, turned out to be the main motivation and inspiration for the design concept of this project.

Article source: FM.X Interior Design

Living in the hustle and bustle of city, working hard day and night for life and career, when stop and look back, the blue sky, green grass, beautiful mountains and open fields of childhood still linger in people’s mind. So people are eager to get away from the multifarious city, and return back to the long-lost nature to freely breathe the fresh air. Mr. Zhang, the owner, grew up in the countryside thinks that both apartments and villas nowadays are too small in size. Story height of commercial housing is becoming lower and lower and makes people feel uncomfortable. The site of this project is very quiet, he loves this piece of land. Due to his longing for natural environment and original life, he has been wishing to own a paradise-like house in a valley far away from the city where he and his families could enjoy a quiet and leisurely life.
