House in Ramat Gan, Israel by Ella Sahar Architecture & Interior Design

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: Ella Sahar Architecture & Interior Design 

In the cube-shaped family home there is a striking interplay between open and closed spaces, the private and public domain, and light and darkness. The origin of this harmonious duality lies in the starting point of the planning process – the cube. Structurally, the cube is closed and confined; but when fused with other cubes, a new, dynamic shape emerges.

BAKE DARLING in CHIHUAHUA CITY, MEXICO by GARZA IGA ARQUITECTOS

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: GARZA IGA ARQUITECTOS

Bake Darling is a new franchise concept in Mexico focused on selling all kinds of pastry-related products, the variety of articles they handle , their forms and uses forced us to create a design concept in which they could be arranged in a more efficient and orderly manner, being that the display space was very scarce. Hidden forms, wooden elements and light draw attention to onlookers and customers alike attracting many kinds people into the store, almost no one leaves without buying a guilty pleasure or two.

VILLA LIVING WOOD by StudioArch

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: StudioArch

This is a concept commisioned us by a firm prefabricated wood houses for its “houses catalog”. How can we design an house without knowing where? Where is the best view? Where is going the sun ? we alaways hated the “catalog house” as such but, in any case, we’ve try to solve the problem. The traditional house programm, living and sleeping area distinct and separated on different floors, was conceptualized by making truly independent the two functional areas that in effect have different priorities. The living area should be alaways facing to the best view while the bedroom’s floor , upstairs, may also look beyond the usual conventional views, provided the roof are always facing south to capture maximum solar energy. Obviously the house is not moving, we have simply created a concept model that provides different possible configurations / versions as result of the interaction with the environment. Each location/environment creates a different version, unique and integrated into the landscape because it’s this context that generated it. At the same time, each version was made by “choices” of future users. From very traditional aesthetic to extremly modern not necessarily following the orientation rules. So the result, the house also represent the personality of those who will inhabit. The context, of which even people are part, is, in any case, the input to shape this house.

Forest of Grid in Japan by YDS Architects

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: YDS Architects

This is a 6-story housing complex built in a shopping street. Life in an apartment is often isolated from the city nearby and loses public spaces.

We considered the meaning of ‘living together’, and tried to connect the housing with city by designing public spaces.

Hachi-Juu Hachi Shouten – EN in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam by Worklounge03-

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Article source: Worklounge03-

En means “flame” in Japanese. The restaurant is centered on the display cooking area in the kitchen. For this reason, we moved away from the traditional idea of a Japaness restaurant and revealed the kitchen and activity to the street. The design needed to be engaging because it is tucked away at the dead end of an alleyway in Ho Chi Minh’s Japanese area, Le Thanh Ton St..

Yingliang Stone Archive in Beijing, China by Atelier Alter

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Article source: Atelier Alter

This rehabilitation project converts a storage space into a stone archive: to showcase the diversities of stone craft and to create a space for architects to contemplate their designs with stone.

As the most primitive construction material, stone comes with dignity and authenticity. However, as construction becomes more and more visually dominated, stones are crafted to be light and polished. The spirit within stones seems to be lost, as stones are gradually substituted by other superficial materials. This project attempts to propose a critic for modern construction.

Amélia’s House in Ílhavo, Portugal by m2.senos

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Article source: m2.senos

This is not just another house. Those alleys were well known to us. Not that much…we used to run endlessly over there, always waiting for someone to invite us to dinner. It was always too early to end the day. And that was the house of Aunt Amelia. Built by only one man, that used to show us a smile of pride and some benevolence, the perfect stereotomy of the stone cladding. To us, that has so much to learn and fancy about building. This was not just another house.

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.

Villa Kristina in Göteborg, Sweden by Wingårdhs

Article source: Wingårdhs

A small house that wants to be big. A small footprint and simple construction means low cost. That’s the idea when we set about designing a house for a young couple on a site surrounded by other single-family homes on the west side of Gothenburg.
