Facing Saint Peter in Rome, Italy by arch. Angelo Luigi Tartaglia

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: arch. Angelo Luigi Tartaglia

Rome – Beyond the glass is Rome, the songs and postcards. There is the atmosphere and the irresistible charm of the capital, is its urban rhythm and then there are the buildings. The context of the setting of this house is the Umbertine quarter of Prati, near the Vatican. The setting planimetric is stiff, typical of the dwellings in this area: entrance, corridor, culminating at the end of the kitchen and the bedroom. In one of these buildings Colavita family lives, better known, especially in the United States, such as “lords of the oil.” “We are a mature couple” – said with a slight smile the owner – and both me and my husband wanted to end up in a home intimate and reassuring that it was neither too much nor too contemporary classic.

CB30 in Mexico City, Mexico by Dellekamp Arquitectos

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Dellekamp Arquitectos

This building has 3 apartments looking unto the street as well as a 2 stories house in the back that lives to an interior patio. Due to the different needs of each client, the apartments have different floor plans. However the public areas concentrate in the front allowing it to become one single space, creating continuity with the exterior. There is a spectacular tree in front of the building, which became an object of design for the interior, as well as for the façade. By working with structural geometry, we managed to support the 15mt span with no columns that would obstruct the view to the exterior; we then sharpened the floor slabs and walls to the minimum, disappearing their edges in the façade.
