EGL1916 in Jalisco, Mexico by Alvaro Moragrega / arquitecto

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Article source: Alvaro Moragrega / arquitecto

At the heart of the Colonia Americana a 5 story project is designed inspired by the industrial buildings of the inter-war period. The main façade has an orthodox abstract rhythm of void and filled spaces that do not follow any structural order. The voids themselves have a second protective lattice with falling crosses evocative of similar lattices often used in the area by the Escuela Tapatía.

Prince Philip Residence in Montréal,Canada by Thellend Fortin Architectes

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Article source: v2com

This project involved the expansion of a spacious single-story Outremont residence built in the 1960s. Situated on a site with a steep incline and majestic view, the two-floor expansion was designed to offer a generous window on the horizon.

The architectural concept involved the addition of living spaces in the form of a long ribbon situated laterally to and in line with the contours of the existing structure. This ribbon folds and unfolds, thus offering multiple views of the surrounding landscape.
