Micro Apartments – Rooms by the Sea in Kwai Chung, Hong Kong by Bean Buro

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Article source: Bean Buro

Bean Buro has poetically created a series of 240sqft (22.2sqm) micro apartments in Kwai Chung Hong Kong as part of a residential development roll out.

Inspired by the surrealist painter Edward Hopper, the effect is a transitory space that simultaneously reflects the external dynamic lifestyles of Hong Kong urban dwellers while creating a calm internal environment. The aim was to create a space for one to reflect inner life and feelings by being able to personalise the space with sentimental person objects. Similar to Hopper’s famous painting Rooms by the Sea, Bean Buro’s canvas paintings depicts natural sunlight captured and the internal space is more an evocative metaphor of silence and solitude than the transcription of an actual scene.

Renovation of Alan’s apartment in Barcelona, Spain by EO arquitectura

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: EO arquitectura

The project presents the renovation of an apartment located in a building on the ‘Eixample’ neighbourhood, Barcelona.

Originally, the apartment presented a decayed and dark image due to the excessive subdivided rooms. The patio is very narrow and it scarcely receives light. Except for the two rooms next to the main facade, the apartment was barely illuminated by natural light.

Benelong Crescent Apartments in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects 

Benelong Crescent apartments are inspired by the sinuous forms of Erich Mendelsohn’s Einstein Tower in Potsdam, completed in the 1920’s. The apartments cascade down the hill to follow the contours and the curved terraced balconies are shaped by the irregular boundaries of the site, rounded off by the prevailing winds.

FLAT COPPER in Paris, France by BADIA BERGER Architectes

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Article source: BADIA BERGER Architectes

In the urban landscape of northeast Paris, the project sits at the crossroads of several transport networks : the major artery Boulevard Mac Donald, the Parisian beltway, the canal Saint-Denis, and the railway axis leading to the Gare de l’Est train station.

By virtue of its verticality and the autonomy of its form, the building signals and highlights the intersection of these diverse networks. Veritable visual landmark, it marks the alignment of the canal from the confines of Saint-Denis to Aubervilliers. As seen from the Port of Aubervilliers, it constitutes a background to the large thoroughfare of Boulevard Mac Donald.

Habitatge SF18 in Barcelona, Spain by FFWD

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Article source: FFWD

The existing interior space was an archetype of a Barcelona’s Eixample flat. Space configuration – based on small rooms concatenation – and its characteristic constructive elements – such as the hydraulic flooring, high ceilings with moldings, old wooden windows and doors, a free height of 350cm, or some singular elements like a wall fireplace – remained intact.

Holder Apartment in New York by Sonya Lee Architect

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Article source: Sonya Lee Architect

A young Manhattan expecting couple approached us, as they began looking for real estate for their growing family. This brought them back to their childhood neighborhood of the historical gardens of Forest Hills, NY, where Fredrick Law Olmstead had masterplanned the leafy modern enclave. This clean modern interior renovation converts a spacious 2 bedroom into a 3 bedroom and a flexible home office. In our early discussions, a small request for a \”phone jack and outlets for a laptop by his bed\” quickly evolved into realizing that our client’s work involved all hours of the day. Creating a dedicated home office became central in organizing the apartment spaces; the office became a buffer between the public open living spaces and the private bedrooms. We provided a teak slat screen to allow for light and filtered views; while a large frameless glass sliding door opens up the space onto the open dining and living room. By the time we completed the renovation, the client decided to permanently work from home.

One. It is a refurbishment work  for an especially dear, single woman. The apartment is located where the sun sets in Madrid. The space is interior, configured by three bays of 17 m2.

Two. She is determined about what she wants. Authentic wood pavement, geometrical floors, a tatoo as Beyonce´s and gentrifying environment with all the clichés that it involves.
