W house in Beijing, China by SLOW Architects

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Article source: SLOW Architects

This is a studio and residence built from the renovation and expansion of a small single-story building. The original building is brick structure with slope roof. Now we take away the old roof and change it into three stories by making use of original brick walls and adding new light wooden structure walls. Since the surrounding environment is relatively messy, we put wood workshop which is not so private on the first floor, and lift the living functions on to the second floor from where the orchard and farmland on the west can be seen. The third floor consists two lofts and an outdoor terrace. The functions are organized as a series of platforms, from workshop on first floor, then dining room, living room, kitchen on second floor, finally to loft and terrace on third floor, spiraling up the two-story high atrium. The height differences between the platforms are determined in a way that some of the terraces are floors as well as big seats where people can sit leisurely to form a very casual atmosphere. This house is also an early test of light wood construction in China.

House in Rato, Portugal by CHP Arquitectos

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Article source: CHP Arquitectos

The design consists of the refurbishment and expansion of an existing building in one of Lisbon’s historic neighbourhoods. The vernacular characteristics of the front facade were refurbished and clarified. Inside the design aims to create and free space on each floor, enhancing its size and scale, and creating a dialogue between the front and back facades, enabling light to entre through both directions. All technical aspects inherent to a contemporary family house are resolved through a block at the centre of each floor, liberating the side walls, unveiling both facades.

Aesop Store in Sao Paulo, Brazil by METRO ARQUITETOS ASSOCIADOS

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Article source: METRO ARQUITETOS ASSOCIADOS

These are the basic ideas that guided the project for this specific Aesop Store:

To preserve the visual impact of the flow of people on the main street, without too much emphasis on the street corner where the shop is located. The entrance of the store will be in the street façade. The address must clearly be Rua Oscar Freire, one of the most important retail streets in São Paulo.

Observation house in Bulgaria by I/O architects

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Article source: I/O architects

The house is located on a hill in the highest corner of a village amid an agricultural area in Northeast Bulgaria.

The site of the project is distinguished both by its panoramic views and distant visibility. In order to strengthen them, a part of the program is located in the seemingly blind bastion-like volume and the living area is elevated high on it. This brings view completion up to 360 degree and privacy in the fully opened space above. The pitched roof connects geometrically the upper volume with the base and adds complexity in the interior space while the oversized eaves connect it to the little meadow around and exaggerate the hovering effect of the slim metal structure. The proportion and the materiality of the solid base give it the appearance of an infrastructural object that define the edge of the village and conceal the ambitious program of the house. The only perforation leads to the cave like space of the entrance hall / garage. The materiality of the interior spaces is dominated by local species wood cladding, which balances the roughness of the entire structure and its surroundings.

Article source: Pepe Gascón Arquitectura

Apart from its mere built container, a school is nothing more than a place where teaching and learning take place. This project, therefore, reflects the desire to interact with the city, revealing the flows and activities that occur within the immediate environment of the site.
