The Zadar Peninsula. Roman Forum. Between the St. Anastasia’s Cathedral and the Archeological Museum. The place of intervention is Bruno Milić’s office and housing complex from 1964, which has been converted into 37 rooms with 111 beds. The existing spatial limits were transformed, using new drywall geometries, color rasters, rhythms of ceramic tiles, glossy varnish, acrylic reflective boards and tinted mirrors, to create a new relation towards the antique, modernistic heritage and nature.

To mitigate the high density of accommodations required on the site, the design adopts a strategy of a tri-parte form and discontinuous stepped silhouette. These formal ideas are complimented by the unique polychrome façade that merges the large building with the surrounding landscape.

The new RIVP (Paris public housing agency) building houses three services: a hostel for immigrants, a hostel for young workers, a 66 place day-care on the ground floor, as well as communal facilities. Located in Paris’ 20th arrondissement, just beyond the beltway, it is both Parisian and Lilasian. The building’s almost unique location in Paris makes it a concrete symbol of the reconnection between the two areas.

The farm known as ‘Sa Vinyeta’ is located in the fringe of the urban fabric of Ciutadella, a place where the city grid plans encounter flat extensions of land dotted with isolated volumes, usually homes, some of which were linked up not so long ago to small-scale agricultural or livestock farms. ‘Sa Vinyeta’ was characterized by a ‘Farm House’ of particular historical significance that forms part of the Inventory of the Architectural Heritage Protection with a ‘high degree of protection’. This protection affected the entire building, including both the facades and the interior layout of the most representative spaces, such as the entrances, the staircases and noble rooms.

This private training center has 2 capsule-hotel and 3 tatami-style buildings. They are positioned with various angles of axis and all the rooms have a view of the Tokyo Bay, each one becoming a space like a ship’s cabin. The client requested guest units that had the possibility of future relocation or addition. While clearing these requirements and in order to ensure the necessary dimension for the bedroom spaces with economy, we utilized a wooden structural frame on a standard freight-truck of adequate dimensions.
