Cervantes Building in Zaragoza, Spain by saiz+renduelesARQUITECTOS

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Article source: saiz+renduelesARQUITECTOS

This residential building makes the most of a tiny space that enjoys a privileged location on a chamfered sidewalk street corner.

The public space takes the lead. The strong volumen of the building steps back on the corner to emphasize the main access.

Transformation In Pronda Road Civic 8 in Turin, Italy by G.G. RAINERI

Saturday, July 16th, 2016

Article source: G.G. RAINERI

The measure in question provided for the restructuring and change of use of an industrial building destination located at the center of a quadrilateral of residential buildings. The shed in which we intervened, was placed exactly in the middle of a block of the west area of ​​Turin, near the border with the town of Grugliasco (block between Via De Santis, Pronda road, via Cimone and via Postumia). This is a city area developed after the Second World War, and still partially in the developing; in fact, some of the block buildings have recently been constructued. The intervention  involved the reshaping of the existing building in order to make it habitable. Its location is ideal, since being on the block center of gravity has a right distance from the buildings to have no annoying visual interference; moreover the intervention took place in accordance with the neighbor (the road Pronda 8), which was planning to demolish the existing buildings low to build a new building on front street, leaving the right of way (existing) to enter the lot in object. The existing building has been, so, surrounded by green gardens, partly to other condos in part derived uncovering part of the building itself. The GFA, originally located on the ground floor of the building, was distributed between the new mezzanine and the remaining ground floor. The height of the cover is not changed, the outer walls were maintained in part as boundary walls in part as the walls of the new residence. The most difficult part of the design was to give the proportions of residential building to a building that was built to house production activities. The main elevations are divided by dormers and recesses that mark the number of homes fitted inside. Moreover, the tall, narrow windows (partially obscured by fixed shading) try to give new proportions to the main prospect. The inputs to housing are designed as common compasses. All shutters and entrances are made of silver-colored metal profiles, the shell is finished with “ISOCOPPO” Alubel light gray, and the facades are painted in colored earthenware (red mattonaceo).

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Article source: G.G. RAINERI

The via Domodossola 25 condominium is located on a small urban lot, between two existing buildings. The city in which is placed the project, is a semi-suburban area that was mainly developed in the period between the two world wars; the buildings that characterize most of this part of city are mostly in the “novecento” style or Art Nouveau style (the Santorre school Santarosa, the faculty of physical education, the neighborhood between Racconigi road and Peschiera road).

NAXOS BUILDING in Frankfurt, Germany by STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Article source: STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

In the middle of Frankfurt´s Nordend district, this new residential block was built to passive house standards on the site of a former Naxos-Union factory. Retaining and integrating the distinctive trees along Wingertstrasse was an important part of the design considerations: the comb-like structure of the complex on this side, with its broad area of green in front of the apartments, is a direct response to this situation. The private gardens of the ground-floor apartments are located in the five courtyards. The back of the complex is oriented towards the listed Naxoshalle, the last remaining relic from the site´s former industrial use. On the corner of Wingertstrasse and Wittelsbacherallee the block is finished off conventionally with a corner tower. The continuous clinker cladding on the ground floor strengthens the ensemble character and is also a reference to its urban context. All the dual-aspect apartments have large loggias to the front and to the rear. In total 69 freehold and 47 rental apartments were built here to the passive house standard.

“Finca Feeling in Palma Palace” in Balearic Islands, Spain by Daniele Claudio Taddei Architect

Friday, June 17th, 2016

Article source: Daniele Claudio Taddei Architect

In the historic quarter of Calatrava in the centre of Palma old town buildings are full of history, but time and weather are also talking great toll, very often the palaces are in need of renovation.

And it is in this context that the top two floors of an historic building originating from the 17th century could be joined together with all the roofs creating terraces on 3 levels, taking advantage of the spectacular view of roof landscapes, the cathedral, several churches and the sea, and at the same time enjoying the very quiet green inner court, typical element of the palaces in the medieval city centre.

Štefánikova Street is known as traffic route in the city center, yet it has the potential to be a city boulevard.

Berliner Altbau in Germany by marc benjamin drewes ARCHITEKTUREN & schneideroelsen

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

Article source: marc benjamin drewes ARCHITEKTUREN & schneideroelsen

Small and cautious interventions try not to destroy the special atmosphere and to retrieve hidden qualities in the refurbishment of a typical Berlin apartment from around 1900.

In three rooms several layers of old color were taken off the extensive moulding on the ceiling. Behind the thick layers of color parts of the original ceiling frescos appeared. Since the ceilings were not painted again, the rooms are being characterized by a lively and diverse feeling full of history. The slight irregularities of a rough lime cement plaster on the walls are equally far away from a too monotonous perfectly smooth surface. The old hardwood flooring was sanded off and treated with a mixture of oil and wax.
