Drink Shop Harpf in Bruneck, Italy by monovolume architecture+design

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

Article source: monovolume architecture+design

The goal of the planning was to implement an area as a meeting place of indulgence and culture.
Front and rear of the store are separated by different styles.
This means that the entrance area was transformed into a traditional corner shop where the passion for detail appears; while in the rear area old architectural treasures have been combined with modern ideas, as defined in ’Rough Luxe’.

The new owner would like to operated the building as a cafe. Our task was to renovate and expand the old pavilion, which was in degraded condition. It was important to link the semi-basement and ground floor space.

Entrecampos Masterplan in Lisbon, Portugal by PROMONTORIO

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Article source: PROMONTORIO

Built next to the campus of the University of Lisbon, the Entrecampos Square is the largest urban regeneration scheme under development in Lisbon since the Expo’98. Like so many other cities in Europe, Lisbon has been loosing inhabitants to the outer rings of the metropolitan area. In addition to macro-scale factors, like the declining birth rate and the persistence of rent-controlled contracts, the cost of housing in city centres has become prohibitive for young people.

House M in Meran (BZ), Italy by monovolume architecture+design

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Article source: monovolume architecture+design

The project M, a residential building in the centre of Meran, is embedded in the quit area of Obermais. The concept of the design was it to play with transparent and solid surfaces what fallows fascinating insights and outlooks. The interior melts together with the outside space. The terrain flows through the building and finds his renewal in the pool- and meadow area. Because of a refined external design and the arrangement of the pool, lawn, garden and house the whole concept seems like a unity with seamless transition. The ground floor follows the slightly sloping ground like a staircase to get a large garden area. Because of engineering technology considerations the building is conceived as a compact volume with one underground and two upper floors. From the construction point of view the house is built as a concrete construction, furnished with upgraded insulation. The glass-facade, door and window elements are executed as 3 layered glazier.
