The project proposes the refurbishment of a house built in 1937. Located in the urban area of Caldas da Rainha, its origin is associated with the genesis of this whole urban area, which, at the beginning of the twentieth century, emerged in the west of the railway line that crosses the entire city.

Östra Kvillebäcken is designed as a dense and vibrant neighbourhood with a strong focus on sustainability. Therefore, it is a Miljöbyggnad Silver certified neighborhood. Our buildings find inspiration in the inner city and its urban qualities. Artistic decoration related to the location and material treatment gives the buildings their own contemporary identity. The Housing estate forms a green oasis with islands of activity. There are natural meeting places with different themes along the pathway that leads visitors through the neighborhood. The communal hall is a place for celebration, overnight stay or meetings. Adjacent to this room is also a communal facility in the yard with laundry area and space for socializing. The homes are generally space efficient with few awkward spaces. In the design, we have worked with basic architectural qualities: axiality, room connection and views-through.

Cocktail Bar Brera Milan in Italy by SBG architetti

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Article source: SBG architetti

Damascegliere is a restaurant and cocktail bar in the heart of the Brera district in Milan. The conversion, in a two-floor brick vaulted warehouse-type building, has large windows overlooking the now glamourous Corso Garibaldi. The design concept for the restaurant is built around two long counters where clients can sit facing either the barman or the chef at work. The outdoor table has the same peninsula-shaped counter giving a continuity between the two spaces. On warm days the arched window opens up to make the inside of the restaurant completely accessible from the pedestrian road. The kitchen is partially visible through semitransparent glass. New services have been installed leaving the brick vaults untouched; a sophisticated air circulation system provides the possibility of keeping different functions such as the bar and kitchen in the same environment as the main seating area. In the basement the absence of windows and natural light is compensated by luminous shelves and mirrors over a continous padded bench.

According to many studies, the coworking phenomenon is intrinsicly associated to the urban lifestyle. The density and diversity of people and oportunities that a big metropolis produces, encourages the apparition of places where its fundamental purpouse is sharing creativity. This is why it seemed natural for us that our spaces payed tribute and were inspired by great cities.

The site of this project is atypical: It is a land unit composed of three parcels of land , rather narrow, of equivalent width and quite deep. The neighboring houses are very imposing: 6 floors on one side and 8 floors on the other. The central plot is occupied by a small building to be preserve, which overhangs the future buildings. His situation reinforces its presence.

Navarcles Skateplaza in Barcelona, Spain by PMAM + SKATE ARCHITECTS

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017


A new skate facility for the city of Navarcles is conceived as a plaza. Despite a low budget to begin with, this facility for skateboarding is considered as an opportunity to contribute in the urban development of the city, transforming an old sports area into a new public park. Now being an Olympic sport, the project rather departs from the fact of street skateboarding being a common and compatible reality on streets and plazas of our cities, a collateral product of urban public space design. Viewed in this light, the project pursues to also structure its immediate surroundings, to set an effect beyond of what’s strictly built and functional for skateboarding.

Bonanova Apartments in Barcelona, Spain by PMAM

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017

Article source: PMAM

Interior refurbishment project of an old medical center –a nearby Hospital former external wing- located on a basement in a corner, facing a private inner court community garden. A flexible layout plan allows, with very few changes, to keep the existing commercial-office use or to establish two independent apartments of 100m2 each: Eventually, a façade circulation and a door –nowadays closed between two mirrors- can be simply reopened connecting the whole surface again. The interior architecture is sustained on timeless and modesty values, with no hunger for novelty or protagonism but with a rather clear will for the endurance on time of the design, and subsequently of the investment put in the renovation. It aims to be capable of supporting any of the programs set by the property owners, whether it is finally housing or offices.
