Graça Apartment in Lisbon, Portugal by fala atelier

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Article source: fala atelier 

The apartment lies in an unremarkable building in Lisbon. Its obsolete fragmented typology presented a series of small rooms, some devoid of natural light, and an impractical exterior bathroom. The intervention aimed to erase these faults and to clarify the use of the available surface: a gently curved wall was extended from façade to façade, defining the limit between a vast common space and the different private rooms.

Duplex & the City in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Architects

Equivalent to the brownstones of New York, this interwar duplex is a humane scale solution to housing in the Sydney city fringes.

Shoulder to shoulder with other apartment buildings, the original 1920s two-storey flats were transformed into a four storey block with a basement carpark and cellar, a ground floor garden apartment and a two-storey penthouse.

The scissor balconies of the back elevation are angled to offer side views while maintaining the building’s rear alignment with the neighbouring properties. The Council thought but resisted the tempation to emacitate the elevation by cutting it back to a flat façade.

K5 Urban Apartments in Oslo, Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter AS

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter AS

The project is sited in an urban block that remains a rare example of the intimate blend of housing and small-scale industry typical of the nineteenth century. The new structure was designed with special appreciation of these environs. The apartments have differing housing typologies of simplex and duplex units, and they benefit from a study of the interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces. The building’s design is characterized by a distinct architectonic form with functional solutions, thoughtful details, and contemporary overall expression.

Cinnamon Tower in Hamburg, Germany by BOLLES+WILSON GmbH & Co. KG

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: BOLLES+WILSON GmbH & Co. KG

The Cinnamon tower was conceived as freestanding campanile – a pin on a piazza was the concept behind the premiated competition design by BOLLES+WILSON for the existing 19th century Harbour Masters Building.

A tower was not anticipated in the competition programme, but the jury agreed that a tower anchors the public functions around the only remaining historical building to survive between the megablocks of the ‘Overseas Quarter’ master plan. The historic building would thus be more autonomous.

Moncalvo in Turin, Italy by Arch. Fabio Fantolino

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: Arch. Fabio Fantolino

An apartment in a building of the early ‘900, located in the Turin hills a few steps from the Gran Madre and from the Piazza Vittorio, has been deeply and carefully restored in 2015 by architect Fabio Fantolino. The international vintage mood is the fil rouge of the project, where elements from the 50s are combined with a conscious recovery of pre-existing structures. The project includes the total renovation of the apartment, the interior design and the design of the lights and custom furniture.

Horizon by ROSKO FAMILY DESIGN

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

Article source: ROSKO FAMILY DESIGN

The apartment belongs to a famous French gallery owner, collector and philanthropist. His private collection includes many rare pieces of art, including a collection of works of the French abstract artist Simon Hantaï, as well as unique pieces of furniture by the iconic Italian sculptor and furniture maker Diego Giacometti. It is these works that the client wishes to display in his new interior. It was therefore very important for studio to create high-quality, photo-realistic visualisations in which every element precisely matches reality. This allows all parties to be 100% confident of the accuracy of the concept. Roskosh Design recreated works by Diego Giacometti and Simon Hantaï in 3D in order to choose the most suitable places for them in hang the new space; in this was they could find the perfect locations to emphasise the supreme quality of the art pieces.
