Hotel Od Talamanca in Spain by Víctor Rahola Arquitecte

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

Article source: Víctor Rahola Arquitecte 

A hotel is a public establishment that welcomes, in a given territory and for a limited time, travelers or tourists.

A tourist is a person who wants to rest from his day-to-day life, generally monotonous, and has no special need to establish new relationships. He wants to have some adventure, of course, to be able to explain it in the future bored nights. A tourist can only travel during work holidays.

Yesterday’s House in Valencia, Spain by Raul Garcia Studio

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

Article source: Raul Garcia Studio

Architecture arises from the need to give shelter to human beings from climatology. Aesthetics is then added to this practical component. Therefore, generating a ‘shelter’ that protects us from the outside while allowing us to be in perfect contact with the same on both sides is a really attractive idea. From this premise arises the refurbishment of this house, open to the outside through a backyard. In addition, as always, natural light penetrates the interior through skylights and interior partitions crowned with glass that provide zenithal light to the whole space. The program is divided into two heights, the lower one with the day program and the upper one that collects the bedrooms and other nocturnal uses. The backyard can be read as much as a continuation on the exterior of the home, as an extension of the garden that culminates in a barbecue and living room. And it is precisely this duality that allows the boundaries between architectural spaces to blur.

K.N Garage in Nagoya, Japan by Wplus_Design

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Article source: Wplus_Design 

It is a plan of the garage and outside structure in Nagoya city.

The house was newly built with a house maker, but I was unable to convince the manufacturer’s proposed external design and received a request.

By dividing the frame of the garage into three, guiding the light from the center high frame into the garage, connecting the frame to the entrance created a space that would unite to the outer fence.

Tectum. Summer Pavilion in Valencia, Spain by Raul Garcia Studio

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Article source: Raul Garcia Studio

This building is located on a plot of 4000 m2 with the purpose of becoming the focus of main activity of housing in the summer months. For this, a pavilion is created totally open to the garden as a continuity of this one. It is a completely permeable construction, but with its own very marked identity, because the deck slab defies gravity by means of the imposing cantilever which, because it has no supports, is directly linked to the pool, being only a roof that ‘floats’ to generate shade in the rest of the program: an open kitchen with barbecue and a traditional oven, a large arbour, and the toilet area and dressing rooms to service the pool. The hidden perimeter lighting still further highlights the slab’s lightness, while the Corten Steel lagging provides a modern look that fits seamlessly with the main house.

FGV house in Catania, Italy by Tuttiarchitetti

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Article source: Tuttiarchitetti 

From 1 room of 48 sqm to 4 rooms of 16 sqm: increase of surfaces, multiplication of space. Two overturned and turned 90 ° turnstiles – in birch plywood panels – operate this magic, also providing the “disappearance” of the metal loft, heavy burden of the previous real estate RE-structuring, and returning “air” to the compartment. The space is so circular: from the living room, to the kitchen, to the study, to the upper bedroom: that from the living room, on the study, connected to the kitchen by a yellow monochrome staircase “dug out” in the birch portals; as well as the front desk counter.

Casa Sophie Apartment Refurbishment in Gràcia, Barcelona”

The project consists of the complete refurbishment of a 160m2 apartment, in one of the most important axis of the city. The geometry of its original plan layout corresponds to the building typology with load-bearing walls parallel to the facade and the rooms positioned to each side of a long corridor. The owners were attracted by the traditional typology of the flat and its exceptional illumination by the three patios. It had not undergone any fundamental change during its 100-year life.
