Bosques 05 in Mexico City, Mexico by Ezequiel Farca

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Article source: Ezequiel Farca

Apartment Bosques 05 is a single-level apartment located within a high-end district of Mexico City. Ezequiel Farca reconfigured the space and transformed its impact on the family with an entirely new palette of colors, materials, and lighting.

A central hallway welcomes visitors, while diverting attention away from private bedroom areas. Farca installed wood paneling on several walls to strategically warm the space, and to introduce the richness of natural material to the inner core of the home. An automatic lighting system allows the family to preset a variety of lighting schemes with the push of a button.

Residential Housing 26 units in Obhur, Saudi Arabia by Dom Arquitectura

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Article source: Dom Arquitectura

The aim is to project 26 houses in the Obhur area. The client wanted to use the same isolated unit type, but generate differences in the street facade to avoid the traditional house complex with all the same.

Recalling the Islamic markets, we remind the Arabic spices image, located in the same container but with different color shades. Natural tones that would fit perfectly into our idea.

Dolomitenblick in Sesto, Italy by Plasma studio

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Article source: Plasma studio

The building is located on a hillside in the Dolomites, at the end of a residential area.

The volume has been developed mainly from its pragmatic functional request to host 6 independent apartments with one common circulation: through a cut that marks the main access and the division of the units the volume is splitted into 2 halves. Besides its functional meaning this incision becomes the main defining element of the building: from the cut at either side a strip unfolds that forms the balustrade of a generous covered balcony and ends into the surrounding topography. Following the steep natural hillside with each floor the strips and the façade jump back.

Vivienda en C/ José Ortega y Gasset in Madrid, Spain by Beriot, Bernardini Arquitectos

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Article source: Beriot, Bernardini Arquitectos

The project deals with the renovation of a 200m2 apartment in Madrid. About half of the apartment, corresponding to day-use spaces, conserved the original ceiling moldings and wooden floors. The project proposed to maintain these elements while opening up the plan, originally divided into rooms and corridors, to obtain one large and only living area. This is achieved by cutting the existing walls at a certain height, leaving on the ceiling part of their footprint and the moldings, like vaults or canopies defining specific places inside the greater space; entrance, kitchen and dining area are defined in this way.
