Av.Roma Apartment in Lisboa, Portugal by Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Article source: Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

The apartment was too compartmentalized in the social areas.

There was only one common bathroom, since the other was conditioned to the maid’s room, only accessible from the kitchen.

The main idea was to bring together living-room, entrance hall and kitchen in an uninterrupted space, giving access to other compartments through a single indoor hall. The elimination of the maid’s room also enabled increasing the kitchen and the reorganization of the bathrooms.

Article source: Metsä Wood

The Hurlingham project in London involved the construction of a sports complex including four indoor tennis courts and four squash courts. The racquet hall, designed by David Morley Architects, is 35 metres wide and 55 metres long. The main span consists of suspended steel beams. To give the courts space and reduce the costs, the beams are spaced with large gaps of 12.9 metres. To fill these gaps, the architect wanted to see wood.
