High Street South in Manila, Philippines by CAZA Architects

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Article source: CAZA Architects

Activating the cultural center of Manila’s Bonifacio Global City, CAZA’s design for the High Street South project fuses the neighborhood, district, and urban scales of the master plan around a spine that functions as a network for public spaces. Borrowing from the geological notion of stratification, CAZA created multiple layers of public space that weave together circulation, culture, recreation and event spaces through a collection of hybridized mixed-use towers. Tower typologies are informed by striated levels that include public spaces of mobility and retail at the ground level; semi-private spaces for recreation and amenities; and private residential spaces with urban villas, terraced apartments, and loft units. With the facades’ playfully idiosyncratic grid patterns that correspond to these layers of tower typology, CAZA has designed a family of unique towers that share a unifying visual language and create a gracefully moving texture against the Manila skyline.

Article source: mar.s architects 

From the original “boat” interior we only kept wooden ceiling and beams and gave the floors new coat of paint. The oak furniture wooden elements stand out thanks to monochrome interior, including the gemstone of the restaurant – Dry Ager – where the meat matures. The only colour elements that lit up the whole area are gold insides of the pendant lamps. The front wall is decorated with original graphic by Jakub Šejvl that refers to the origins of steaks.

AR Vinhos in Aveiro, Portugal by Paulo Martins, Arqto

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Article source: Paulo Martins, Arqto

Based on minimalistic and pure lines, this wine house project, located in Aveiro, is characterised by a plane that is at the center of the design, which flows around the entire space.

Following a gardened furniture at the entrance of the space (which is an allusion to the vineyards), the focal point becomes the flowing plane, which guides the eye through the space, passing by the exhibited wine bottles, and ending at the main counter desk.

The wine house is divided in two floors: the top floor with a more private space, where wine tasting and workshops can be conducted, and the ground floor dedicated to the comercial activity of the shop.

VILA ROMANA RESIDENCE in São Paulo, Brazil by MMBB Arquitetos

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Article source: MMBB Arquitetos

The design of the Vila Romana Residence is derived from the twin imperatives of topography and usage.

It is situated on a corner plot with views of the town’s principal valley, with a drop of 10 meters from one side of the plot to the other.

The first question to be tackled was that of creating an artificial terrain that would allow for easy transit around the external areas and their use for day-to-day activities. The landscaping was determined by the creation of these areas.

Habitat 67 in Montréal, Canada by UQAM Centre de Design

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Article source: v2com

This summer, the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) Centre de Design will host a special exhibition examining architect Moshe Safdie’s pioneering urban housing complex Habitat ’67, its manifestation over the course of Safdie’s global career, and its lasting influence on the architectural field at large. A Canadian National Heritage Site and living landmark, Habitat ’67 evolved from Safdie’s thesis project at McGill University and was commissioned by the Canadian government, the province of Quebec, and the city of Montreal as a major, living exhibition for the 1967 World’s Exposition. From the moment it opened, Habitat ’67 captured the international public imagination and has become an enduring icon of Expo ’67 and Canadian pride. It remains to this day a source of inspiration for architecture devoted to humanistic ideals.

The Lima Art Museum New Contemporary Art Wing in Distrito de Lima, Peru by Efficiency Lab for Architecture PLLC

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The New Contemporary Art Wing Expansion to the Lima Art Museum located in the 19th century Exposition Palace, creates a strong architectural dialogue between the historical structure and the new expansion; they connect without touching. The project requirement to create a below grade expansion to the current museum without touching the historical structure below or above grade, resulted in a careful exploration of how to spatially connect these two buildings that cannot physically connect.
