Torcuato House Pavilion in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Besonias Almeida arquitectos

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

Article source: Besonias Almeida arquitectos 

The Commission

The commission arises from the principals need to have an enclosure where they can be isolated from the activity of the house, and then facilitate the development of functions more relaxed and much more connected with the landscape. It was to be an indeterminate space, since its use would also be indeterminate, but it should be comfortable in both winter and summer. This brief program was rounded off with the request of an outdoor bath and a small warehouse.

The place chosen for location by the principals is the farthest from the house, next to the existing evergreen trees sector on the lot.

For Bangkok, or any other modern-day cosmopolitan cities, living conditions and spatial form continue to evolve.  Bangkokians are now yearning for new possibilities of outdoor living space that can effectively answer to the tropical heat and its dense living condition where there is not much space for the outdoor. ‘The Commons’, a small retail development in the city center, is an attempt to create a new active outdoor space where people can comfortably enjoy it at anytime of the year.

Puni Distillery in Glurns, Italy by Werner Tscholl. Architekt

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

Article source: Werner Tscholl. Architekt 

The production of 176.000 liters of whisky by Italy’s first and only destillery of this beverage takes place in a building reflecting the company’s pioneer character through a rigorous organization and an expressive façade. Inside the double height of the production zone allows a view to the underground silos and the stills from the store situated at the entrance level. All the functions and the three stories of the building are wrapped within al lattice of cement blocks, colored with soft earth tones, forming a modular scheme as used in farm buildings of the area. So the complex on the outside appears as a simple cube nuanced only by the gaps of the lattice.

Maison R in Coppet, Switzerland by Lacroix Chessex Architectes

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

Article source: Lacroix Chessex Architectes

This house from 1936 is surprising by its height, much more important than houses from the neighborhood. The cover (roof and frontage) has to be renovating because of massive thermal losses. Moreover the owner finds his house to big and wishes to rent a part of it. So the mission is to reset up reconfigure the inside and rethink all the external cover, which means proposing a new architectural expression.

Jindal Pipes Corporate Office in Gurgaon, India by Morphogenesis

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

Article source: Morphogenesis

The project entailed taking a completed building and designing the interiors for it with obvious constraints imposed on the interior architecture as the building design was done independently and with little provision for the intended and eventual use of the building. Although this was a huge challenge, but also made the design process immensely interesting.
