HOUSE 028 Renovation in Abano Terme, Italia by MIDE architetti

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

Article source:  MIDE architetti 

The project involves the renovation and expansion of a single dwelling of the early 70 ‘s, located in a residential area in Abano Terme. The project site is spread over two floors above ground and it is faithful to the original plan involving four large rooms on each floor, distributed through a central corridor. The functional needs of the clients matched with the existing distribution, whereby the proposed project will preserve as much of the existing masonry as feasible, without subverting the original plans, and in turn resulting in an economically sustainable project. Important changes will mainly involve the ground floor, where the need to obtain a wide living area in a close relationship with the garden will require an expansion to the building. The facades will be reinterpreted by adding large openings toward the private garden which will subsequently provide additional natural lighting. On the ground floor, there are movements and community rooms such as the cloakroom, the living area consisting of living room and kitchen, pantry, bathroom, storeroom, laundry and garage. The latter, a volumetric block covered with aluminum slabs, plays an important role in the composition of the new facade characterized by brown-grey plaster. On the same floor, the living areas will be intimately involved with the garden through large openings, creating an ideal extension to the outside: a relaxing space for family use during sunny days. The upper floor will be utilized as a sleeping area, consisting of two single bedrooms, a bathroom and a bedroom with an adjoining bathroom and walk-in closet. The personality of the new building will be strongly reinvigorated by the choice of the materials adopted; the contrast between the rough grey-plastered wall surfaces and the elegant metallic surfaces adorned with a bronzed finishing touch.

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

Article source: Nice Architects Ltd

The first truly independent micro-home

Story of the Ecocapsule has begun in the 2008 when our architectural studio Nice architects participated in Andes Sprout Society idea competition to design small housing unit for artist. Ecocapsule v1 was bearing three pivotal design features: round shape to minimize energy losses, water collection capability and mobility. Design was not successful In the competition, but breaking point for the project was when inhabitat.com choose Ecocapsule to their selection of the most interesting picks from competition. Massive amount of inquiries persuaded us to develop this project further.  Unfortunately technology of 2008 was not ready for truly independent house.

Maison Terrebonne in Montréal, Canada by la SHED architecture

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Born from an extreme transformation of a typical 90’s bungalow, the “Maison Terrebonne” is located on a vast wooded plot of land. Although certainly contemporary, the new residence is built on the same foundations as the original house while preserving one of its principal characteristics; split levels. This principle is at the very heart of this building’s new architecture. This thorough building overhaul, in combination with a larger upstairs, was designed in order to meet the needs of a person living alone. Despite a small 1500 square foot living space, the residence offers vast open rooms with an abundance of natural lighting.
