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.

Office AST 77 + Apartment in Tienen, Belgium by AST 77

Back in 2006, architect engineer Peter Van Impe  was searching for a place to accomodate his newly founded architects and engineers office, AST 77 architects and engineers office. He stumbled upon a post-war townhouse located at the edge of the city park of Tienen. After some research this lot, of just 60 square meters, turned out to be suited for construction. Although others never considered this small piece of land to be a usable building lot, Peter transformed it into a spacious house/office by upholding the less is more principle.

La Valentina Station in Sacramento, California by David Baker + Partners Architects

For more than two decades, a high-crime light-rail station stopping at a toxic empty lot; now, a sustainable affordable family housing development and new gateway to downtown.

La Valentina Station brings 63-units of affordable rental housing for families to a previously desolate city site. The development bolsters the local sewer, electrical and storm-water infrastructure and brings compact, transit-oriented homes to the neglected area.

Apartment in Duque de Alba, Madrid by Beriot, Bernardini Arquitectos

Friday, January 18th, 2013

Article source: Beriot, Bernardini Arquitectos

The Project transforms a small, 28sq-m office in the historic centre of Madrid into a private apartment.

The basic aim of the project was to provide, despite the small surface available, all the necessary elements for a comfortable everyday use, avoiding shared-use solutions such as convertible bed-sofas, usual in these projects but fastidious due to their necessary daily transformation.

The project was obtained by winning a competition called by the City of Mechelen.

The city council aimed the old Buso site to be developed as a high quality urban area, housing ten loft dwellings. The commission was entrusted to dmvA because they were the only architect office that took the ‘spirit of the factory’ as starting-point.
