Berazategui House in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Besonias Almeida arquitectos

Saturday, April 16th, 2016

Article source: Besonias Almeida arquitectos 

The place

It is a lot in a new closed district, with a young vegetation and very few buildings, so that the house had to be conceived lacking of all data provided by an already established neighborhood. The particular location of the lot, still without adjoining houses, neither added relevant data to the described environment, except those related to its orientation.

Loft 64 in S-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands by EVA

Saturday, April 16th, 2016

Article source: EVA

In the heart of ‘s-Hertogenbosch a former office and workshop was completely renovated and converted into a loft. Because the building is 20 meters deep and really only has light at the front and rear, access of daylight has been an important theme. The explicit wish of the client was to be able to enjoy the property as one large space. Various voids/vides were introduced that allow daylight to penetrate deep into the home. The voids provide glimpses between the various residential functions themselves. The functional elements such as bathroom, toilets, storage room and kitchen are grouped in one large timber volume that also connects the floors. From the bath you can look right through the void into the sky.

The original project was composed of two houses, one of which was finally built, constructed with local materials.
