Giving Warmth to the Building Skin-The World of Gio Ponti, Father of Modern Italian Design in Tokoname, Japan by TORAFU ARCHITECTS

Friday, December 6th, 2013


We designed the space for an exhibition “Giving Warmth to the Building Skin-The World of Gio Ponti, Father of Modern Italian Design” at INAX MUSEUMS in the city of pottery, Tokoname, Aichi prefecture, Even though Ponti is a modernist, he explores architectural surfaces, integrating hand craft work into machine production in order to communicate “feeling of skin,” such as its texture and warmth. Four themes: “Interior wall,” “Window” “Floor” and “Exterior wall” were keys to the interpretation of the exhibition. By making excellence use of co-located Monozukuri Koubou laboratory crafting technique, we have attempted to duplicate Ponti’s tile work.

Residence Rieteiland Oost in Amsterdam, Netherlands by Diederendirrix Architects

Article source: Diederendirrix Architects

Rieteiland Oost in IJburg is an island in Amsterdam with several detached houses, most of which border onto the IJ at the rear and are closed in at the front by a collective courtyard. This residence opens onto the IJ with a view over the Diemerzeedijk. Maximum use is made of this open view by raising the living area to the bell level and putting the garaging, together with the front entrance and workroom, on the subterranean level.

The Florida’s housing is one of the most representative project in our office.

At the project’s beginnings we saw that one of the most important determinant thing, it was its own situation.

The lot was really close to the A6 highway, a very important road in Madrid, so the constant  noise it was very uncomfortable in spite of the location: a quiet  place with lots of vegetation.

HEALTH SCIENCES FACULTY in Zaragoza, Spain by Taller Básico De Arquitectura

Article source: Taller Básico De Arquitectura

The new Health Faculty of San Jorge University is located on a campus on the outskirts of Zaragoza city. Although it is a rural campus, the nature in it is scarce. The forest along the campus is the result of a man created operation. The surrounding buildings, the Rectory and Communications Faculty, respond to a contemporaneous architecture that lives besides that nature.

Loophouse 2 in Fulham, London by Paul McAneary Architects Ltd

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: Paul McAneary Architects Ltd

This project redefines the internal organization and exterior form of an existing 1960’s single story ranch house. The project for a new master bedroom suite and a guest room leverages the limited scope of work by using the overall new form to give the entire house a new identity. The new massing is positioned forward in relationship to the existing approach and seems to rise upward as the hillside falls. The new master bedroom provides this new front with a formal face, yet does not yet imply entry. As you move further into the site the appearance of a courtyard caught between the existing form and the new massing reveals the new entry.

NOLLA HOUSE in Barcelona, Spain by OAB

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: OAB

The Project proposes placing the house right in the centre of the plot, in such a way as to clearly differentiate two separate parts; an Access garden square and another but more private with a swimming pool.

In the superposition of 3 volumes with convincing geometry a one family house was designed. By going through the access square the double-height entrance hall is reached, joining the transit areas and vertical communication in the house.
