“House with four houses” in Portugal by Prod architecture & design

Friday, May 15th, 2015

Article source: Prod architecture & design

This holiday house for a family of four is located in the north of Portugal. It’s shape is defined by the same number of individual volumes.They have similar dimensions but distinct orientations. Three of the volumes are orthogonally organized around a core, whilst a fourth rotates to match the direction of an existing neighbouring building. The proximity between the two constructions led to a desired dialogue. The modest dimensions of the existing building determined the scale of the house while the vernacular identity influenced its layout. Each volume has a two slope roof. Besides emphasizing its individuality it enabled to increase the plasticity of the composition.

Article source: Taller David Dana Arquitectura

Mexico D.F. is developing new and extraordinary urban interventions with the aim of utilizing the existing cavities with potential. In this case the “Mercado Morera” located below one of the most congested freeways becomes one of the great examples of this ongoing scene. Yumi-Yumi is a brand new concept for Japanese cuisine; the client hired us to design an integral project including the brand identity. The design proposal had the objective of being easily replicated in multiple locations. TDDA partnered with Diego Leyva, Creative Director of Nhomada to develop the graphic design, we worked through a multidisciplinary process to engage the industrial design, typographies and architecture. The result transforms the typical sushi bar and integrates a whole concept for the traditional rice bowl.

Specht Harpman designed Weleda’s North American headquarters within the shell of a 19th-century factory along the Hudson River.

“How does a building looks like which is not used for half a year during the winter? “
During the winter it is closed, but when the sun arrives the building transforms. The arrival of the spring is visible in the building: screens move up, doors slide open and the flags wave into the air. The building reacts on the summer sun.
