Eva’s Phoenix in Toronto, Canada by LGA Architectural Partners

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

Article source: LGA Architectural Partners 

LGA Architectural Partners (LGA) has created Eva’s Phoenix, a neighbourhood within a building. Eva’s offers safe and inclusive long-term shelter, education and skills training to marginalized youth aged 16-24 in transition from homelessness to independent living. Within two, heritage-designated warehouses leased from the City of Toronto, the architectural team created a central, interior community faced by ten clean-lined and contemporary townhouses that are awash in natural light from a ceiling of new skylights, whilst securely enclosed by the original brick walls. For up to one year, each of the 50 residents enjoys his or her own bedroom, within a “house” comprised of a communal living and kitchen space and two bathrooms with up to four others. These houses face onto an internal street – which serves as a gathering place for the Eva’s community. The layering of spaces builds comfort by giving the youth the choice to decide their own level of integration.

Project Floor Area Ratio Game in Ulsan, South Korea by ON Architecture INC.

Friday, June 9th, 2017

Article source: ON Architecture INC.  

Prologue

The most important issue when planning the design of the house in 2014 was like “FAR Game: Constraints Sparking Creativity,” which was the theme of the Korean Pavilion in the Venice Biennial, 2016. This land is a class 2 general residential area, so an architect can build a building with a 60% the building?to-land ratio and a 200% floor area ratio. It is common to design a three-story building with a 60% building-to-land ratio and to design the fourth floor with a 20% building-to-land-ratio. However, the land area (142m2) was so small that 20% of the area was only 28.4m2. It was important to find alternatives to look for a maximum floor area ratio to meet what the building owner required without any loss.

Arapiraca in São Paulo, Brazil by Triptyque Architecture

Friday, June 9th, 2017

Article source: Triptyque Architecture 

The particular urban base of Vila Madalena neighborhood in São Paulo defined the project created by Triptyque Architecture: a residential complex built in Arapiraca Street. The integration with its context – a neighborhood of old houses, close to bars and restaurants – was the main objective of Triptyque’s architects, in order to make a natural dialogue between the 8000m2 volume of construction and its relief.

Kant K in Kyoto, Japan by koyori DATT

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Article source: koyori DATT

A residential complex located in Muko city, Kyoto. The building is facing to a historical street. The location is mixed with historic sites and countryside sceneries as well as the modern shops and apartments, making the area rather unarranged. Thus, we aimed not just to meet the requirements as a preferable rent but also aimed to make the architecture have positive effects to the townscape when to design this apartment.

2073 Offices Building in Maracaibo, Venezuela by NMD NOMADAS

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Article source: NMD NOMADAS

The existing building branches two very important and modern avenues of Maracaibo. The building cannot refrain from this responsibility; the current building is silent and unnoticed. That is why the renewal must make it the centerpiece of the whole urban piece that is not muted but clear; intervention strategies are directed precisely to recognize the building in the urban role and strengthen its relationship with the city.

QP Apartments in Sofia, Bulgaria by HAVE Architects

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Article source: HAVE Architects 

The main objective of the project was to create something entirely different from the common residential buildings in Bulgaria, most of which are characterized as “recycled socialistic” panel blocks. There are two types of materials used on the façade – colored metal panels for the “golden shell” and dark tinted glass for the apartments. In between each apartment, there are curtains – some of them are from tinted glass and others from perforated stainless steel. Due to the strict technical parameters of the projected buildings, a big part of the construction is heavily monitored. The project “QP apartments” consists of three individual buildings with various types of housing options and parking on the ground level. The first building is called Q, which houses smaller apartments, while the other building named P, is bigger and includes luxurious penthouses. On the ground level of both apartment buildings, there is place for parking and recreational areas.

Haussmann Stories in Paris, France by chartier-corbasson architectes

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

Article source: chartier-corbasson architectes

At 85 Championnet there was an empty plot of land, with a plan that was too convoluted to be constructed in a classic way, like the rest of the street, built in the Haussmann era. The rue Championnet is indeed occupied by a long ribbon of Haussmannian facades all more or less identical.

The building takes place, leaving empty spaces that, in response to the adjoining courses, create views.
