ME Hotel opens in London by Foster and Partners

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Article source: Foster and Partners

The triangular site of the ME Hotel on the corner of Aldwych was once the home of the Gaiety Theatre, which was damaged during the war and demolished to make way for an office development. Completing the grand sweep of buildings that make up the 1920s crescent, the new scheme repairs the urban grain and restores a little lost glamour to the heart of the West End. The project, which is due to open in summer 2012, is the first flagship hotel in which everything, from the shell of the building to the bathroom fittings, has been designed by Foster + Partners – the result is an elegant fusion of interior and exterior design that signals a new contemporary approach for London’s boutique hotels.

Article source: Cherem Arquitectos

Located near ‘ El Zocalo’, right in the heart of the old city where the Aztecs first settled and afterwards the Spaniards built churches and palaces using the existing stones that were part of the Aztec pyramids. “Downtown” is settled on a magnificent palace, witness of the XVII century architecture. Known as the “Palacio de los Condes de Miravalle”, the red volcanic rock walls, the multiple doors, window quarry frames and the handmade cement tiles, along with the glorious patios and a spectacular stone-forge staircase provide the building the unique flavor of the Mexican vice regal style.

The sea is always an enormous challenge for an architect. The Mediterranean Sea is the most unusual site. The infrastructure works started with the opening of the new mouth that effectively divides theBarcelonaharbour into two areas: small and big ships. The urban mission of the project is to provide an extension at the south point to the city waterfront. The project includes a public plaza opening to the sea, a marina and a landmark hotel, a wonderful icon for a cosmopolitan city.

This is a sports fishing Lodge in the exhuberan pacific south of Costa Rica. The project is trying to blend contemporary architecture concepts with the tropical architecture language. In order to approach to this idea we decided to design wide open spaces and heights to get the most of the fantastic front ocean view, but at the same time the idea was to get a very warm and cozy feeling for the tourists.

O Dos Vasconcelos – Hotel Habita in Nuevo Leon, Mexico by Landa Arquitectos

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Article source: Landa Arquitectos

O Dos Vasconcelos is a mixed-use complex organized around a central, open-air public space with a circular plan. The parking area, the apartments and commercial spaces, and the hotel volume are all visible from the entrance level. The relation between the underground and the aboveground spaces, and the concentration of different functions in carefully crafted pieces, lends the complex a mechanical character –appropriate for a predominantly industrial city– which reminiscent of the early work of James Stirling.

Nau Royal Hotel in São Sebastião, Brazil by GCP Arquitetos

Saturday, February 2nd, 2013

Article source: GCP Arquitetos

The Nau Royal building design was based upon very cleary assumptions: functional programing, simple and clear lines tipology, but with a strong formal expression, connection with its spetacular surroundings and sustainability. The party consideres the existing natural landscape and views as a key element to the project, therefore, adopting modern brazilian architecture principles, such as the use of large openings protected by “brise-soleil balconies”, framing from one side of the building, the mountains covered by rain forest and from the opposite side, the Cambury beach and the Atlantic ocean.

Pedras Salgadas Eco-Resort in Portugal by RA Architectural & Design Studio

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Article source: RA Architectural & Design Studio

The new Eco-resort of Parque de Pedras Salgadas, Portugal, consists of a set of seven small houses in perfect harmony with the surrounding outstanding nature.

Designed in a modular prefabrication system but flexible to adapt to the specific places within the park, these houses result in several different combinations of the same three modules (entrance/bathing – living – sleeping) creating different morphologies and different dialogues with the surrounding nature, wisely occupying the empty spaces between the trunksof large trees and, at the same time, allowing each home to be unique, special and worth visiting.
