LISBON STONE BLOCK in Lisboa, Portugal by Souza Oliveira – Arquitectura e Urbanismo Lda.

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Article source: Souza Oliveira – Arquitectura e Urbanismo Lda.

Lisbon and its “new avenues” (built in the beginning of the past century) are always a challenge for an architect.

Lisbon’s Stone Block is located in the corner of two major streets  and that position is somehow special in the relation that the building it-self creates with the “urban net”.

The idea/concept of the building is based in a “mutant facade”: a skin in stone, almost metamorphoses and movable.

Departamento Parque Reforma in Mexico City by Lopez Duplan Arquitectos

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

Article source: Lopez Duplan Arquitectos

For some housing developments, showroom apartments must be done and the main challenge is the creation of a residential environment with all the necessary details to appeal to anyone. It is almost a dream comes true, a space that has to be design without a client, but it is exactly the opposite, it is a space that will be visited by many clients and the goal is to catch everybody’s eye and most specially to make them feel: “I want to live here”.

RF III APARTMENT in Lisboa, Portugal by Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

Article source: Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Transformation of a 4 bedroom apartment into a 2 bedroom apartment, increasing this way its social areas .

The apartment was essentially developed along its length, structuring itself around a long corridor. However, thanks to two existing courtyards in the building it benefited from the entry of natural light in its inner part. The house was quite compartmentalized, and the rooms, with tiny areas, were mainly oriented to those courtyards. On the rear façade there used to be a very large and disqualified marquise devoted to storage and cleaning areas. It had only one complete bathroom.

The planning process identifies an architecture that interprets the urban condition in which it appears, taking as generative condition, the new relationship with the southern part of the park Tarello here that the south end towards the street Lamarmora to continue north to street Sostegno. In a context of macro-isolated objects, many with clear vertical characterization, there is the recent intervention by the Forum and Banca Lombarda, which together with the park Tarello, while building a partial urban identity. To strengthen this condition, it is proposed that a fundamental principle the idea of continuity space, where the measure proposed architecture, space and structure compliant reference. The building does not look like an object suspended within a batch but an element that builds the site, integrating coherently open spaces, built spaces and relationships spaces. The extensive scale of the intervention allows, despite its bias, to identify a mode of urban construction that exceeds the factionalism of the atopic background. The architecture is contextualizes alone, in the sense thatarchitecture builds the site, opposing dispersion and peripheralization, extent and identity, without falling into a historicist interpretation of regressive.

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.
