The Community House in Slavonice was built by German citizens of the town before the Second world war. It was the meeting place for their clubs and societies. After the Second world war Germans were expelled. From the 1980´s the house had been extended without any concept several times, conversion into cinema was never finished. In 1989 the totalitarian regime ended. Later the house was bought by local NGO (Slavonická renesanční), which organizes public cultural and educational activities, and it was decided to renovate it.

Kilic Ali Pasa Hamam in Istanbul, Turkey by Cafer Bozkurt Architecture

Friday, January 30th, 2015

Article source: Cafer Bozkurt Architecture

The Kılıç Ali Paşa Hamam was constructed in 1580 by Master Architect Sinan, on behalf of Ottoman Admiral Kılıç Ali Paşa as part of a larger ‘külliye’ complex, in the Tophane district of Istanbul. As the physical manifestation of a unique period in the historical harbor of the Ottoman imperial city, the Kılıç Ali Paşa hamam has become not only part of public space again in the Tophane area, but also part of an overall revitalization of a previously derelict area in the city. 430 years of layered materials and debris, literally ‘embalming’ the surfaces and ‘burying’ the structure, had to be removed in order to identify and restitute the original Sinan building, thus relinking this 1st degree historical monument back to its origins.

SPACES ARCHITECT’S @ka OFFICE in New Delhi, INDIA by KAPIL AGGARWAL

Friday, January 30th, 2015

Article source: KAPIL AGGARWAL

An Architect’s office of 1500 sqft. (150 SQM.)in basement has been conceptualized as an open office, the office space on two levels, the lower to be used as workstation. The office design was conceptualized to be place which being leisure is also conductive for people to work in a creative environment, a workplace to enjoy.  The zoning of spaces is justified keeping the main cabin with attached conference at the rear to maintain privacy as well as visually connecting it to front office. As the front office space is narrow with regards to rear part, the front space is used as a gallery with walls in cement finish highlighting the project display.

The house is located in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in a gated suburban neighborhood. In the back of the lot, there is a navigable river that communicates with the Rio de la Plata Delta from where you can reach  the Republic of Uruguay. This is a very remarkable feature of the place, as the water gives us the possibility not only to take a daily water sport practice , having a mooring at the back of the house, but specially to enjoy  a unique environment and landscape.

Botella verde in Mérida, México by Workshop, diseño y construcción

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

Article source: Workshop architects

La Botella Verde, “The Green Bottle”, is a new and casual bistro/store located in one of the hottest spots in Mérida, Saint Lucia’s Park. A relaxed atmosphere can be found within the revitalized space where you can enjoy a glass of wine with their appetizers.

Over the past year, Mérida’s historic downtown in Southeastern Mexico has enjoyed a comeback. Former colonial homes and XIX and XX century mansions are being restored to their former glory and Saint Lucia’s Park is part of that. With its historical features such as towering arches, the building was erected in the XIX century as a place to gather and enjoy what the city had to offer. With the passing of time, the building was abandoned and closed until a couple of years ago when its new owners restored it and offered spaces up for rent; most spaces were filled by restaurants, hearkening back to the building’s origins.
