The Minhocão Marquise in São Paulo, Brazil by Triptyque Architecture

Sunday, April 3rd, 2016

Article source: Triptyque Architecture 

The Minhocão viaduct was built in 1971 as a sign of the modernity who gave to the cars a central place. Today, it appears as a scar in São Paulo downtown. The director plan has until 16 years to transform this elevation of almost 3km. For many years the focus was on the future of the high road, but never its lower part, completely forgotten in this reflection while it is surely the most affected, such as an urban tunnel, source of shade, a leftover of the São Paulo city.

Casa L in Buenos Aires, Argentina by ALRICGALINDEZ ARQUITECTOS

Sunday, April 3rd, 2016

Article source: ALRICGALINDEZ ARQUITECTOS

The Landscape

Along the street´s promenade, a construction catalogue is displayed.  Due to this, the reduction of components in the design language, the material as an expression itself, and the presence of the building as a definition in its own: concrete in its purest state with no elements  making reference to the domestic, clearly defining the limit between the public and private space. The front façade is deconstructed by two planes that follow the cul-de-sac´s geometry. Only light can go through them, so the sight stops. In a man created landscape, with no relevant attractiveness, a new landscape is formed in the interior: inner patios with vegetation and natural light define the character of this particular world.

Clay Roof House in Selangor, MALAYSIA by DRTAN LM Architect

Sunday, April 3rd, 2016

Article source: DRTAN LM Architect

The House is located on a small lot in the older suburbs of Petaling Jaya. The owners had purchased an old dilapidated house and wanted to rebuild a new family home. Upon inspection it was discovered that the old house had good quality Indian clay roof tiles that were still robust. And as the property faced west, the clay roof tiles offered a good solution to vertically screen the façade from the morning and afternoon sun.

Consolidation of the Tower of Matrera Castle in Cádiz, Spain by Carquero Arquitectura

Sunday, April 3rd, 2016

Article source: Carquero Arquitectura

After the partial collapse that this medieval tower suffered, being a historical landmark for its strategic position in the latest “Nazari” border through the Valley of Guadalete, where it´s cut with Bética range, we project the consolidation of this landscape icon that lost part of its imposing volume, leaving at risk the stability of the rest popup, removing with it not only part from the architectural element, but also the landscape reference of a landmark very linked with the iconography and culture of the region.Being cultural modals and emblems of our own cities and territories, the crisis has done that they succumb in the abandon for the own economic disinterest that carries his maintenance.

The Bow Window Penthouse in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Friday, April 1st, 2016

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Architects

In a first for Luigi Rosselli Architects the camera has left the ground to pan over the penthouse additions to a classic Art Deco style apartment block built in the late 1920s.  The penthouse’s defining feature is a bow window in the corner of the building facing the intersection of the street that reaches out to create a dialogue with the passers-by in the avenue below.  The bow window is also reminiscent of windows found in the Captain’s Quarters at the stern of historic ships; borrowing from naval architecture was appropriate for the seaside location of Bondi Beach.  The penthouse is separated from the existing brick unit block by a concrete slab and spandrel, this is a fire protection requirement.  A wave of metal roofing conceals the upper level of the penthouse from the street.  The wave dovetails towards the view, culminating in a balcony, of which two were designed but only one was allowed by the Council.

Article source: AZC architectes

The exceptional natural setting of Suresnes – an undulating landscape, like an amphitheatre – orientates the town towards the river Seine and the Bois de Boulogne.

Pacemar SAS, holding company of Louis Dreyfus Armateurs, purchased one of these modern blocks, built in 1989. The original building, some 4,300 sq m built in reinforced concrete with a column-and-beam structure, was designed over six levels: an 88-place underground car park, a ground floor, and four upper levels.
