COMERCIO 117 in Escandón, Mexico City, Mexico by ARCHETONIC

Saturday, June 28th, 2014

Article source: ARCHETONIC

This building is located on Calle Comercio in Mexico City’s Escandón neighborhood.

This architectural project is essentially an intervention on a 1950s building that was previously used as a storage location. It has now become the raw material for a new, 18-apartment housing program supported by the pre-existing structure. The concept for the entire development was based on the use of simple, strong and low-cost materials suitable for the commission. The end result is not only a work of architecture but also a successful business.

Apartment in Buda, Hungary by Szen Molnar Tamas

Saturday, June 21st, 2014

Article source: Szen Molnar Tamas

While the apartment was under construction the bachelor who owns the place fell in love with the large uninterrupted space, but he also wanted to be able to separate the traditional functions. Maintaining large spaces and separating rooms at the same time required a mobile solution. This bachelor pad has 2 more special features: the amazing panorama and the fact that the sun goes around in the space. These also led to unique interior design solutions.

The Snow Apartement in Zhangjiakou, Beijing by penda

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Article source: penda

The Snow Apartement by penda is located in Zhangjiakou, which is a famous skiing region 160km North of Beijing and offers a weekend-getaway for the client and his friends.

The design of the apartment is inspired by a melting snowfield in spring, when nature slowly revives from  winter and offers a contrast of cold and warm, white and colored. This atmosphere was translated into architecture by hand-plastered, white shells, which cover walls and the ceiling and creat a seamless space, which guides visitors naturally through the apartement. The curves of the interior responds in a very direct way to the outside landscape of mountains and valleys.

Herold – Social Housing100 in Paris, France by Jakob + Macfarlane

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Article source: Jakob + Macfarlane

In the context of the reconversion of the ancient site of the hospital Hérold, conceived by Philippe Madec in Paris 19th arrondissement, Jakob + MacFarlane establish/design three mineral forms standing free on a kind of slope triangular island planted with some trees. These three forms, grow like roots on portions of the territory that have been freed by the constraints of the site : protected trees, the ancient existing wall of the beltway, the size and prospect, the not buildable surfaces or the difference in height. Their shapes are at the same time the result of these constraints and a matrix structure generated by an irregular grid on the floor.

Apartment Refurbishment in Lisbon, Portugal by Henrique Barros-Gomes

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Article source: Henrique Barros-Gomes

Complete refurbishment of a late 60´s apartment in Lisbon.

Facing 3 streets, the apartment has great sun exposure and nice views to the surrounding areas. However, its original condition showed a very spacious, but also poorly divided and unbalanced interior, with many partitions, resulting in a needlessly intricate and dark plan. Social and private areas arrangement did not make much sense either – It was felt from the first moment that the house would gain if its organization was completely reversed. Nevertheless, it was a solid construction with a generous ceiling height, and great potential for intervention.
