Encants Barcelona in Spain by b720 Fermin Vazquez Arquitectos

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Article source: b720 Fermin Vazquez Arquitectos

PREVIOUS STATE
Els Encants is a centenarian marketplace set outdoors in an informal way. Its former location was close to the market’s new grounds both at Glories Square.

A flee-market dedicated to auctions and the sale of second hand objects, furniture, clothing and all sorts of curious and bric-à-brac. Its origin goes back to the 14th Century. It began its activity at Glories in 1929 occupying a public site of nearly 17.000 m2 in an improvised way, and developed under a temporary basis, becoming a much loved, unique space in the city. The new market is the first step of an important City project: the reform of Glories Square, Cerda’s central square at the junction of the three main avenues of his Plan.

SANTO TOMAS PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTE – FIRST STAGE in San Joaquín, Chile by enrique browne y arquitectos asociados

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Article source: enrique browne y arquitectos asociados

The plot is located in a corner of the busy Vicuña Mackenna Avenue, on which an elevated metro runs. Located in front of the site is the largest Campus of one of the most important universities in the country. Its main access is on the diagonal to the site of the Santo Tomás Professional Institute. Another important issue is the oppressive presence of a metro station of 150 meters in length, located in front of the site with the height of 4 floors. The only visual relief occurs at the corner of the site, exactly on the mentioned diagonal. It was thus decided to access the Institute on that axis.

This shop, specialized in selling pineapple cake (popular sweet in Taiwan), is in the shape of a bamboo basket. It is built on a joint system called “Jiigoku-Gumi,” traditional method used in Japanese wooden architecture (often observed in Shoji: vertical and cross pieces in the same width are entwined in each other to form a muntin grid).

Q3 APARTMENT in Saint Petersburg, Russia by MODOM

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Article source: MODOM

The owners’ sociability and openness laid the foundation of the design of this exceptionally open and integral room with a core that later becomes functional and useful. A giant eight meter long table stretches through the whole space and different functional areas. The lack of stepped storage space and moving large volumes below eye level adds more spaciousness to the apartment.The hierarchy of the materials plays its own role in creating contrast — between the large amounts of warm wooden colors and the neutral white, which is further subdued by the light wooden floor. The more private part of the apartment contains a bedroom, a bathroom and a multifunctional closet.
