Velenje City Center Pedestrian Zone Promenada in Slovenia by ENOTA

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

Article source: ENOTA

The Velenje “Promenada” is an important city space and a vital city thoroughfare. It is one of the central axes of the centre of Velenje, a young town designed in the 1950s, based on the Modernist ideal of the garden city; as such, it is unique in the Slovene space. The renovation of the Promenada represents the first step towards the gradual revitalisation of the city centre. It’s tasks are to supply the city with the missing programmes and to help it reclaim its original character of a town-in-a-park. A successful renovation, informed by the awareness of the excessive surfaces designated for traffic, must bring together two requirements seemingly at odds with each other: “More greenery and more programme.”

Counterpoint House in Toronto, Canada by Paul Raff Studio Architects

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

Article source: Paul Raff Studio Architects

Situated on a narrow lot in a leafy neighborhood, Counterpoint House is a lofty, light-filled home for a family of four.

After immigrating to Toronto from Europe, the family searched extensively, but could not find a house they wanted to live in.

They then engaged the architect Paul Raff, and discussed their wish list: open, interconnected living spaces with a strong sense of connection to the garden, trees, and sky. The clients wanted a home that would seamlessly enhance a family’s experience of working, studying, playing music, cooking and dining together.

House in Benicassim, Spain by Egue y Seta

Saturday, May 30th, 2015

Article source: Egue y Seta 

Removing unnecessary partitions, annexing circulation spaces to premises with a practical function and pursuing a direct visual connection with the exterior, are altogether strategies commonly employed when achieving a feeling of spaciousness is required within confined spaces. This formal discourse, that seems to be commonplace ever since the “lofts” became overly popular, does not exhaust its potential benefits when applied within the context of larger homes. Proof to this is the latest comprehensive renovation project tackled by Spanish interior design studio Egue y Seta, on a house of 300m2 in the town of Benicassim on the coast of the sunny province of Valencia.

IN SUSPENSION in Montreal, Canada by Naturehumaine Architecture

Saturday, May 30th, 2015

Article source: Naturehumaine Architecture

The client wants to transform the last two levels of a building to create living spaces for her two athletically inclined children, who are now grown adults. The primary goal is to create a shared living space in which all utilitarian functions are shared but which still allows each person to have privacy. The architectural concept consists in removing the floor currently separating the two levels to create a wide-open space in which two large boxes appear to float in mid-air. These suspended boxes, adorned with unfinished plywood panels, each contain a bedroom and a bathroom. This configuration creates three gaps, each being two floors high; the centre gap becomes a physical exercise room with a pair of gymnastics rings. The whole structure is connected lengthwise by a block that is painted black; the block accommodates different services, including stairways, a shower room and part of the kitchen. A large island with unfinished wood painted white delineates the kitchen space, with sliding lacquered bookshelves underneath the wooden boxes.

NDBS in Paris, France by Atelier Zündel Cristea

Saturday, May 30th, 2015

Article source: Atelier Zündel Cristea

AZC’s project for Notre-Dame de Bon Secours had to manage two major issues. Firstly, it involved rebuilding within the urban fabric of the city by reshaping an occupied site in order to give it greater clarity and adapting it to today’s urban requirements. Secondly, the consideration of how to integrate vulnerable or aging populations into the city, and how this should be addressed architecturally.
