Article source: FRANCISCO PARDO ARQUITECTO in colaboration with AMEZCUA

On a 12.5 meters wide by 25 meters long site, 8 apartments were planned, 2 for each floor of the building. They were to be arranged longitudinally and divided by three voids: a central cube for services and two lateral ones for vine-covered terraces that would work as filters between the public and private spaces.

The Melbourne Residences in Brisbane, Southbank by Tony Owen Partner

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: Tony Owen Partner

The Melbourne Residences, is a 20 storey building consisting of 200 units in Brisbane’s Southbank. It contains retial and rooftop club including gym, pool, cinema and dining room. The tower plan is driven by the desire to maximise the oblique views from the units to the river and CBD. This results in a stepping form which maximises the number of units with access to the East. We derived inspiration from the ripple patterns created by the wind. This ripple orders the stepping of the façade reflecting the interplay of the environment on the façade. The tower has a unique undulating façade which ranges from zero to 4m. These facades contain operable glass screens to create wintergardens. These wintergardens provide a second skin to maximise thermal efficiency and reduce energy use. Melbourne street is becoming a fashionable retail address. We designed a 4 storey retail façade. Retail connects the street via a through site link to Fish Lane which is being revitalised by art installations and cafes as a bohemian centre. The clients brief was to create a superior residential address and activate the street with world class retail.

S APARTMENT in NEUILLY-SUR-SEINE, FRANCE by Dwek Architectes

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: Dwek Architectes 

Interior design is one of the disciplines that Olivier Dwek undertakes with a passion. His taste for the interaction of materials and unexpected, exclusive textures leads him to conduct all kinds of experiments with seasoned artisans. Working together, they engage in treatments of materials that generate sometimes unexpected results. For this Parisian apartment, the materials are combined and confronted following a rhythm that is metered down to the last detail. Nothing allows itself to be fully understood from the outset. Olivier Dwek likes to cover his tracks. Brushed aluminium, which boldly dominates the composition of the reception room, offers moiré reflections that could be mistaken with the grey velvet. The sense of a somewhat futuristic sophistication which he elicits is nuanced by touches of American walnut and natural foalskin introduced in the selected items of furniture. The stone flooring, shaped by the years it has spent in a riverbed, in turn creates an unfathomable impression, a vibrancy that appeals and questions. In this highly architectural, urban environment, it was important to incorporate light and nature. According to Olivier Dwek, one of the major revolutions in contemporary architecture involves the thickness of window frames. Having now become imperceptible, they enable the exterior to reach right to the heart of this city home.

Habitatge M11 in Catalonia, Spain by FFWD Arquitectes

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source: FFWD Arquitectes  

In this flat situated in Barcelona’s Eixample, our starting point was an unfortunate period renovation from the 1980s.

At first glance, it seemed like the ’80s had erased all the original and distinctive elements of the space, which dates to 1875. But after some light “cleaning”, we uncovered some of the original elements, and realized they could be the soul for the new space. These elements were traditional Catalan hydraulic cement tiles, and exposed structural elements of the building, including exposed brick walls and the wooden beamed ceilings.

Light-House in Hsinchu, Taiwan by Shen Ting Tseng Architects

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source: Shen Ting Tseng Architects

Light-House is located in Hsinchu County, Taiwan. This multi-storied residential building block is designed in consideration of common Taiwanese terrace style houses. This project seeks to rethink the fundamentals of this particular housing model and intends to reinvigorate its underlining idea as “Lian-dong” (describing a continuous housing block) and “Tou-tian” (terrace houses describing buildings with roof spaces open to the sky) in the design approach.

The Séqué in Bayonne, France by Gardera Patrice

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Article source: Gardera Patrice

A small courtyard, a back entrance on the kitchen side, a hut, a dead tree, garden boots, smells, be in touch with nature, birdsong, animals, a vegetable garden, a shed for tools, a pergola, ivy along the walls, piles of wood, a tree under which to shelter, a forest, an under-growth, a river, an attic, a chicken coop, a bench, a pond, a well, a fountain, a path…

Living outside, space, air, light. How to live the countryside? How do you live in a forest? What are the ambiances? What are the specific characteristics of a habitat in the countryside?

3 Stories in Budapest, Hungary by GASPARBONTA

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Article source: GASPARBONTA  

‘I highly doubt, that this apartment can be turned into a decent home’ – said a close relative of the owner, seconds after we first saw this place. I hardly agreed. I loved it. Luckily, the owner – a great innovator, a friend and a fellow dino enthusiast – and I were on the same page about the outcome. This was one of the most complicated structures, I have ever seen, covered by numerous layers of human history and unwanted building materials. We had to take the long road and uncover this beauty and turn it to a contemporary home.
