The apartment building with 30 rental units for young people is located at the eastern edge of the Carabanchel development. Like other new urban districts in Madrid, this zone is characterized —with its oversized street grid, isolated buildings, unoccupied parcels, empty apartments and vacant shops— by the abrupt change from the booming market of 10 years ago to the present economic crisis.

The project consist on the trasformation of a traditional flat, located in a 1950’s construction of the Expansion District of Pamplona, into a house for a young family.

Starting from a compartimentalized and unpractical distribution, the renovation turned the appartment into an organized open-plan space where the day and night areas are clearly differentiated.

South Lowell Apartments in DENVER, COLORADO by Workshop 8 Architecture

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Article source: Workshop 8 Architecture 

The S. Lowell Apartments owned by the Denver Housing Authority (DHA) was an aging family site that had reached its useful life span. It had leaking pipes causing mold, structural damage and inefficient heat for both the units and domestic hot water. As with any prudent developer, the goal was to use the site for its highest and best use at the most affordable cost. Working together, WORKSHOP8 and Pinkard Construction helped the DHA find a way to obtain 96 units using the existing units and adding 28 additional units, saving them $5M over the estimated cost of tearing the existing structure down and rebuilding 96 new units, the maximum allowed based on City parking requirements.
