ISKRA Cafe in Moscow, Russian Federation by Nowadays Office

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

Article source: Nowadays Office

A double-leveled café and bar ‘Iskra’ (‘Sparkle’), serving grilled chicken and a variety of sparkling wines, is located in one of the most authentic neighbourhoods in Moscow. Kitai-Gorod is a part of the old city, once hidden behind the vallum that adjoined the Kremlin. Pokrovka 38A is a classicist building constructed in the late XVIII century that used to be the private residence of a noble Moscow family. After the building was nationalised by the Soviet government, a light and spacious bedroom with a vaulted ceiling — taking up 35 sq m of the ground floor — was turned into a local dairy shop. This space is now Iskra’s upper level café with a secret bar (ironically called ‘Public Bar’) occupying the basement beneath.

Article source: Philippe Samyn and Partners

The Avenue Bel Horizon, typical of a number of residential districts located in the surroundings of Brussels, is bordered by houses, some isolated, some in small groups, arranged in narrow and deep plots. The one that interests us is no exception to the rule: 20 m wide along the road (to the North) and 73 m deep, with a building area limited to 11 m in width and 15 m in depth, 6 m away from the road.

El Palmar in Yucatán, Mexico by Davidcervera

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

Article source: Davidcervera

The palmar, is a project of a summer house, located in the Port of Chuburna Yucatan Mexico. With a very small program since it only has a room kitchen living area and swimming pool.just 90 scuare meters. As a first objective we thought to locate the house at the bottom of the land to the south side as in the adjacent houses (in the whole context) the houses are crisscrossed to the front and leave the backyard unused. In this case it was invested to leave to the front of the house the palm trees that were in the place. Also they are in the north air, better lighting ventilation and visuals. It is a simple scheme of 3 spaces looking to the north a semi-open terrace, a living area with kitchen that extends the space with an outside terrace that approximates to the palm trees and integrates with the piscine.y the bedroom a little more private to the east .
