Madeleine Mon Amour in Barcelona, Spain by Egue y Seta

Thursday, March 31st, 2016

Article source: Egue y Seta

The whole concept was named after a French girl (Madeleine), a place where to offer delicious pastries hand made by “grandma” to a bunch of ladies who like to take their tea every afternoon, or a champagne cocktail at night. The challenge was to create a very intimate atmosphere with an elegant but cosy ambiance, and references given by the client went from all too girly lingerie shops to the very romantic “budoir” interior design style of the “belle époque”. In short, we were about to tackle our “most feminine” task so far, and didn’t know if we needed to start wearing high heels so to bring out all of our “pink power” or if it was better altogether to pass on the challenge to a curvy and sensitive colleague. We went for the first option and after a few months of renovation project and execution we can proudly say we can now tell the difference between fuchsia, magenta, purple red, or French violet…!

Recovery Of An Area Called “Ex Furnace” For The Realization in Rimini, Italy by Pietro Carlo Pellegrini Architetto

Thursday, March 31st, 2016

Article source: Pietro Carlo Pellegrini Architetto

The project concerns the recovery of an Ex-Furnace in Riccione, an industrial complex for producing bricks, built in 1908 and decommissioned in 1970. The whole intervention area is 40.000 mq; the covered surface is 3.400mq. Old destinations give way to the new ones, exploiting the existing spatial possibilities, maintaining the shapes of the old body factory as historical memory of the place: inside of it will be placed a secondary school for 450 students, a  theatre with 650 seats, a headquarters office, as well as the organization of the external spaces. The project aims to reduce the environmental impact, replacing the old buildings with new ones characterized by high energy efficiency, without filling more surfaces. The intervention is imprinted on one side to recover and give value the existing masonry elements, on the other side to distinguish the new elements from the old ones, maintaining a compositional coherence throughout the intervention. Outside the brise soleil in brick elements determine the homogeneous backdrop of the original architectural forms, using a traditional material in an innovative way: they give unity to the whole composition and at the same time they underline the existing brickwork. The two buildings of the school centre, whose technical aspects are cuttingedge, easily conform with the ruins of a former brick furnace.

Wall House in Khaldiya, Kuwait by AGi architects

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

Article source: AGi architects

As in the famous Lewis Carrol tale, Wall House is not what it seems. Is it a fortress that closes itself to the world? Or is it an isolated place that avoids all communication with the exterior? Not at all! Wall House by AGi architects communicates with its formalized solid skin, an existing concern in the city. It is the expression of those thoughts: “the all judging peeping tom”, “windows that looks towards the place where nobody wants to be watched”, “opened facades show only false and preconceived realities”.
