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.

A show flat in the new modern complex Situla in Ljubljana, Slovenia by GAO architects

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Article source: GAO architects

A show flat in the new modern complex Situla, situated next to the main train station in Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia, designed by GAO architects.

Gao architects designed the interior of the flat, based upon a story of living an urban, dynamic and creative life in the core of the city. We associated the urban lyrics, colourfulness and liveliness of the passing trains with a sort of rough design of certain lofts which can imitate the modern way of living with its fusion of different decorative elements. They can reflect a very artistic way of living due to the choice of materials.

Biombombastic in Madrid, Spain by Elii

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

Article source: Elii 

Complete refurbishment of a flat in the centre of Madrid

The purpose of this project is to renew an old flat in the centre of Madrid to turn it into a transformable space.

The project hinges around two complementary strategies. Firstly, an open space is configured, and the whole programme is grouped and arranged around an L-shaped band on two sides. This band includes the access to the household, the outer façade windows, a folding bed, the storage space, a complete kitchen, a fold-down auxiliary table, access to the bathroom and the washing machine. It optimises the spatial distribution and compacts all the functions so that everyday activities can benefit from as much space as possible, all the while adapting to the geometry of the apartment. Secondly, a fitted screen on one of the sides can be deployed from the wall to create different domestic arrangements, by closing the bedroom, the kitchen or dividing the house into two.
