Alvenaria Social Housing Competition Entry in Lisbon, Portugal by fala atelier

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

 Article source: fala atelier

The competition sought a new identity for the “Alvenaria” neighbourhood in Lisbon. After many years of indifference, a single intervention was required to resolve the whole site while bringing it back to the present.

The proposal did not intend to encompass all the volumes in a static solution. A module was defined, a cube of 2.55m, and the variations and multiplications allowed the dwellings to develop iteratively.

Article source: Jorge Figueroa + Asociados

Fray León building is a small set of 9 apartments located in the area of San Damián, in the commune of Las Condes, in Santiago de Chile. The architectural proposal consists of breaking a body into small fragments that generate unique and identifiable volumes, without repetition and almost without modulation. We work in a way to generate identity and a sense belonging. Each apartment has its own particularity and characteristics.

SZWALNIA club & amp;restaurant by WAMHOUSE s.c.

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

About the collection “XII”

The collection “XII” will consist of 12 thematic interior designs, together with furniture and fittings, which in each part will be interconnected, not only in terms of style, but also by name. Each subsequent design will be created within one month, and the entire collection will take one year to create.

Here, visualization is to constitute more than a design, which is thrown away after implementation of the interior design, but mainly an image, which has a deeper meaning and can function individually, for instance as a print on a wall, or even a CD cover.

The Chazen Museum of Art by Machado and Silvetti Associates

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

Article source: Machado and Silvetti Associates

From the project’s earliest stages, the goal has been to create a strong physical connection and sense of continuity from the existing museum to the addition. Building on this initial concept, two other very important relationships that have been a focus of the project are the connection from outside to inside and from the addition’s entrance level to its main gallery level.

RESTAURANTE EL MERCA’O in PAMPLONA, Spain by VAÍLLO & IRIGARAY + GALAR

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Article source: VAÍLLO & IRIGARAY + GALAR

We like the restaurants that change: that every time you go are different … changing your emotions with the type of event you want, with the environment you want to recreate … (we hate the feeders) …
we like places that speak of where you are, the climate in which they are involved, what they have at them side…
we like the restaurants that have appropriate corners, dwellings which can be tailored to each …
… seldom have found … perhaps that is why we accept the challenge of build a restaurant in a merca’o
