Apartment Refurbishment in Lisbon, Portugal by Henrique Barros-Gomes

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Article source: Henrique Barros-Gomes

Complete refurbishment of a late 60´s apartment in Lisbon.

Facing 3 streets, the apartment has great sun exposure and nice views to the surrounding areas. However, its original condition showed a very spacious, but also poorly divided and unbalanced interior, with many partitions, resulting in a needlessly intricate and dark plan. Social and private areas arrangement did not make much sense either – It was felt from the first moment that the house would gain if its organization was completely reversed. Nevertheless, it was a solid construction with a generous ceiling height, and great potential for intervention.

Pantheon For An Engineer by Martinez Vidal

Article source: Martinez Vidal

A trompe-l’oeil (French for «deceive the eye») is by definition a technique which tries to deceive the eye by means of the architectural surrounding environment, the perspective, the shading, and other optical illusions, creating an “intensified reality” or a “substitution of the reality”.

The House As A Metaphor by Michael Jantzen

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Article source: Michael Jantzen

This series of sculptures by Michael Jantzen plays with the iconic house shape in a variety of abstracted contexts, juxtaposing the house with other recognizable symbols. Most of the pieces are monochrome, and use a single material for both the house and the additions to it, which range from stilts, wheels and railroad tracks to clouds and crosses. Minimal and conceptual, these sculptures are meant to interrogate the meaning of the house symbol by exploring how simple interventions affect its interpretation. These sculptures are presented as proposals for large public art installations.
