«Svoyo mneniye»* brand agency is a small highly specialized agency engaged mainly in package designing.  Despite the modest company size its portfolio has a lot of world famous clients.

The agency had a wish to obtain an «unusual and creative space», separately discussed were areas for placement of a large number of exhibition samples.  Thus the office room size was quite small — only 450 sq.m., however the premises had many interesting features: once there was a plant located in this building so it had very high ceilings, brick walls and huge window apertures.

Résidence Roy-Lawrence in Sutton, Canada by Chevalier Morales Architectes

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

Article source: Chevalier Morales Architectes 

Located outside the village of Sutton, in Quebec’s eastern townships, the Roy-Lawrence Residence is set in a vast estate very much impregnated with the legacy of a Swiss immigrant family that came to Canada in the 1930’s. To this date, the surroundings of the residence are still defined by bucolic landscapes, iconic Swiss chalets and other buildings of similar nature that were erected along the years, always with a consistent touch of nostalgia.

Casa 3 in Acapulco, México by At103

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Article source: At103

The Project consists on the restoration and enlargement of an existing house in the old part of the city of Acapulco, Mexico. In the 50’s and 60’s, Acapulco was a Hollywood Town, full of glamour and money, where all the rich and famous— from John Wayne to John F Kennedy and Maria Felix—would meet, where good taste and modern architecture blended with the beautiful landscape of the bay and the cliffs. This has changed over the last decades: the city grew old, and no new infrastructure emerged, except in the classic area, to preserve its former contemporary city atmosphere.

Modern house in Vilagarcía de Arousa, Spain by Nan arquitectos

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Article source: Nan arquitectos 

“I would like a modern and cheap house for lease”

During the first meeting with the sponsor, the requirements for the house were clear, but a “modern house” is not the best way to start with the project definition. We were looking for a low- cost house that could satisfy the requirements from an ephemeral user. For that, we’ve chosen the simplicity of the design, distribution and construction.
