Boutique Hotel in Pangalti, Turkey by Manço Architects

Friday, May 29th, 2015

Article source: Manço Architects

The project was designed as a 35-room boutique hotel to be constructed on the site of an abandoned commercial block that will be redeveloped according to the Urban Regeneration Law.

A strong architectural character reflecting the urban context was aimed so that the building will stand out among the numerous small-mid size city hotels being erected in the vicinity. The plot is located on Dolapdere Avenue that is still predominantly lined with auto repair workshops despite the ongoing gentrification process. Accordingly, façade and interior materials referring to the automotive industry with their shapes, textures and colors were preferred.

4 PATIO HOUSE in Tacubaya, Mexico City by Andrés Stebelski architect

Friday, May 29th, 2015

Article source: Andrés Stebelski architect

Located in the old district of Tacubaya in Mexico City, this house employs a contemporary language in an attempt to reinterpret the use of patios.

The floor plan can be read like a chessboard, alternating solid volumes and open patios; but since the design of the house is all in glass, the space is conceived as one: the inside becomes the outside and vice-versa.

Cockfight Coliseum Garden in Lima, Peru by 2.8x arquitectos

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

Article source: 2.8x arquitectos

The Project is born from the idea of recovering an old cockfight coliseum no longer in use, and changing  its purpose without transforming the original space and traces. The coliseum and the  cocks had a big sentimental value for the owners because of a family tradition. This is the reason why the project turned out into the creation of a memorial garden.

OVD 919 in Cape Town, South Africa by SAOTA

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

Article source: SAOTA 

Brief:

The Brief was to create a spectacular home which encapsulated the expansive 360 degree mountain and sea views.  Though views out were paramount this needed to be carefully balanced with the required privacy from within.  The living areas were to be open plan – enhancing everyday life.  “The architecture needed focus on creating a contemporary, uncluttered and sculptural building,” said Tamaryn Fourie, senior associate and project team member.

Two small make one big.

Visegrád town center development in Hungary by A+ Építész Stúdió (aplusarchitects)

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

Article source: A+ Építész Stúdió (aplusarchitects)

Visegrád, with its 1800 inhabitants, is considered to be the smallest town of Hungary. The development of the town center is a fine example for how the original exaggerating ideas were altered due to the economic crisis – besides its negative effects – and facilitated the birth of a sustainable development, satisfying the continuous needs of the local community and the temporary demands of tourism.
