Dezanove House in A Pobra do Caramiñal, Spain by iñaki leite

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: iñaki leite

The architect’s inspiration came from the reclaimed eucalyptus wood of the “bateas”. These are the mussel production platforms that you see in the estuary and that constitute one of the most important local industry in “Ria da Arousa”, Spain. Eucalyptus wood is used in these platforms, and there are great extensions of this tree in the region.

Renovation of Alan’s apartment in Barcelona, Spain by EO arquitectura

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: EO arquitectura

The project presents the renovation of an apartment located in a building on the ‘Eixample’ neighbourhood, Barcelona.

Originally, the apartment presented a decayed and dark image due to the excessive subdivided rooms. The patio is very narrow and it scarcely receives light. Except for the two rooms next to the main facade, the apartment was barely illuminated by natural light.

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: André Mesquita

In an existing Loures villa was introduce three different dwelling areas. This areas were united morphologically and structurally through the treatment of void areas and zenithal windows.

The spatial organization was adapted to the existing typological structure giving rise to new spaces revealing the potential of pre-existing ones. These intervention lives of small subtleties, such as the variation of the different heights, zenithal windows and by small touches on the use of color.

NOBIS – EFTERSLÆGTEN Sportscentre in Copenhagen, Denmark by LAUNGAARD ARKITEKTER

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: LAUNGAARD ARKITEKTER

The project was to construct an indoor sports arena in an already existing urban environment. The challenge was to find the right architectural connection and identity between the existing structures and the new building. The functions of the new building, its dance hall, gym and lecture halls were different from that of the existing buildings and finding the right balance became a key priority.  The new indoor arena is pressed into the landscape and solidly grounded in order to ensure that the structure is kept on the same horizontal level as the existing structures. Pockets of light and air have been constructed to underline the different levels and dimensions of the surrounding landscape and the creation of layers in the façade to the Northwest is constructed in order to connect the exterior with the interior of the building. NOBIS’ façade reveals an inner secret, an inner structure and a layered structure to form an arena that serve as the surrounding structure for the game on the pitch. The layered construction of the faced is made up of ‘translucent polycarbons and expanded metalthat has a shading effect. The choice of materials ensures that the light in the arena is always changing and somewhat diffuse. The arena has a uniformed façade that leaves a different visual impression depending on the amount of light both inside and outside. On the backside of the Northwest end of the façade the columns and beams are revealed. The Arena is a place made for ‘combat’ – for physical challenges and heated matches – set within raw and bare columns.

D10 is a single-storey one-family home built in an established residential area. A private driveway provides access to the house. Two parallel shear walls are a distinguishing feature of the building. Generously designed glazing serves to provide a spatial enclosure. Protected by an extensively projecting flat roof a generously sized patio encircling the house serves to unite the indoor space with the outdoor space. Access to the building is also gained via this patio.

Dawan Square Department Store in Beijing, China by LATITUDE

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: LATITUDE

Despite being a fairly recent construction, the actual department store has two basic flaws: a lack of character in its façade and public spaces –which we consider indispensable to ensure the success of a commercial building–, and a disorienting organization of the interior commercial area. Thus, the refurbishment scope of the building is focused on three main areas: interior refurbishment, façade renovation, and the restructuration of the outdoor landscape.

Team Living House in Tokyo, Japan by Masatoshi Hirai Architects Atelier

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: Masatoshi Hirai Architects Atelier

This is a renovation project of an apartment in downtown Tokyo. The client said unintentionally that they want to spend a brilliant time together nowhere else but in their house. Then I thought, “Indeed”. I always find that houses around us are way too far from the reality of each family life and communities, and they all look alike. It seems as if there were no identity in family life, which is ridiculous.

New Kyoto Town House 2 in Japan by ALPHAVILLE architects

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: ALPHAVILLE architects

The current wooden house system based on bearing wall calculation hardly fits in with the ‘eel’s bed’ or the elongated housing lots typical of Kyoto, an old capital of Japan. While the width of lots has been segmentalized  to provide minimal daylight, ventilation and access over a long period of time, the only option today of opening up the frontage is either steel structure or specialized wooden frame structure.
