Progetto per uno spazio espositivo presso il negozio Interni Ceramiche a Tolmezzo (Ud) by ceschia e mentil architetti associati

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Article source: ceschia e mentil architetti associati

The parcel interested by the intervention is occupied by a small 1970’s warehouse used as a utensils’ depot. A first intervention turned it into a commercial space for the sale of products complementing bathroom furniture; a second intervention amplifies the volume characterized by a big covering vault which repeats the construction system and faces it with a mimesis attitude.

The Wedge House in Athens, Greece by schema architecture & engineering

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Article source: Schema Architecture & Engineering

The Wedge house is a custom-built single family home located in the northern suburbs of Athens, in the mountainous and full of pine trees area of Penteli, named Drafi. The site is quite distinctive and has many challenging features. The main complexity is the steep terrain with an almost 20-meter-height-difference from one side of the site to the other. The virtually vertical cliffs on both edges made access very difficult, so when a mild inclined surface appeared in the middle of the site it was quite inevitable that the house would be situated there.

Redux House in Bragança Paulista, Brazil by studio mk27

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Article source: studio mk27

“Suzana only thinks of the house, she is in love with it”. Suzana’s ex-husband cannot get it out of his mind that the new house – conceived by them both – meant the end of his marriage. The ex-husband’s jealous looks are meant for nobody else other than the straight and modern lines, “cold, tedious and without life”. While images pass through the architecture he distills his fear of the construction and elaborates about the new life that Suzana will be enjoying at that place. “Where is Suzana now?” She couldn’t be in any other place except that house, where Suzana’s love is so transparent.

Ilôt Poste Weiss, ZAC Châteaucreux à ST-ETIENNE in France by ecdm Architectes

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Article source: ecdm Architectes

Contribute to a new polarity in the landscape 

Located across from the St. Etienne station on the Esplanade de France, the influence of the intervention at the heart of the BIA Châteaucreux is a link between neighborhoods and horizon lines, a low point in the topography of St. Etienne in front of a preferred route to the city center. Combined with the scale of the project and the symbolic value of the program, This unique location gives the project a special status in the construction of the city. The project subscribes to the contemporary idea of the construction of the city that leads to the creation of rhythms, of multipurpose spaces contributing to the realization of a less linear environment, able to evolve and mutate. The goal is to embed the large commercial component of the neighbourhood in a more complex urban dynamic, made of interlocking assemblies essential to any large and vibrant city. Thus, the project offers an open floor plan, initiating continuity and affiliations, creating links between polarity and panoramas, hills and plains, lower and upper town.
