Integral Reform Of Commercial Premises for Housing Use in Seville, Spain by modulo4arquitectura

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

Article source: modulo4arquitectura

The project was commissioned to design a house for 1-2 people in a commercial space located on the ground floor of a residential building of four floors, addressing its realization through comprehensive reform.

The construction of the building in which it is located dates back to the year 1970 and is representative of the architecture of the time, presenting a facade free of superimposed ornament whose composition is resolved by the construction elements themselves. On both sides adjoins residential buildings of more traditional architectural language, coexistence of styles that can be seen along the street, located in the heart of Triana. This being one of the most representative of the most traditional Seville, with low-rise buildings for housing and specific small-scale shops on the ground floor of them.

Gallot Lofts in Oakland, California by Baran Studio ArchItecture

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

Article source: Baran Studio ArchItecture

Located at, 3030 Chapman, Gallot Lofts is a multi-family residential building. I believe the project would be interesting to readers as it presents a context uncommonly found in architecture publications, it is an example of a unique design strategy at the rough edges of what some consider to be a rough city. The project is located in Jingletown, a neighborhood at the edge of East Oakland, CA. which is at the geographical and theoretical center of the Bay Area housing crisis. The city of Oakland is rapidly growing due to housing cost pressure from San Francisco, and projects of this type are springing up throughout the area.

House Floating in The Air in Taipei City, Taiwan by 317studio

Tuesday, October 30th, 2018

Article source: 317studio 

This residential project is located at a half-way down the hill.

On the 23th floor of the building, the view outside is at a perfect height to watch over bushy tree tops and peak.

We asked ourselves how to maximize the relationship between inside and outside?

When we look up at the building, it’s just like a tree house,

Like” an imagine of tree floating in the air”.

Family House in the Slope in Šternberk, Czech Republic by masparti

Tuesday, October 30th, 2018

Article source: masparti

The site is located on a hill below the forest, almost at the end of the street. Building activity in this neighbourhood began in the inter-war period, when large villas of several floors were built. In the course of the following years the place became more dense as the original gardens were divided into smaller lots, where newer houses of smaller–scale started to appear.

POSTSCRIPT Residence in Kfar Shmaryahu, Israel by GOTTESMAN ARCHITECTURE

Tuesday, October 30th, 2018


Gottesman Architecture in collaboration with GSArch, unveil POSTSCRIPT, a modern, minimal, private home located in Kfar Shmaryahu, Israel. It is the first private home undertaken by Architect Asaf Gottesman in over a decade. Approached by a former client, this project offered an opportunity to re-sharpen old skills and to rekindle a discourse with both clients and friends. The result is a deceivingly simple design that appears both effortless and unassuming.

Cast in situ in fair-faced concrete, POSTSCRIPT reflects a preoccupation with meticulous detailing.  Designed for a large and growing family, the home unifies several narratives while underlining the importance of the family nucleus.

12-004_Residence G+C in Sorel-Tracy, Canada by DESK architectes

Tuesday, October 30th, 2018

Article source: DESK architectes

Located on the banks of the St. Lawrence River in Sorel, the residence is positioned to benefit from the natural topography of the site. From the road, the long and narrow land is relatively flat over most of its area, except at the end of the lot where a significant height difference makes it possible to reach the river. This characteristic determined the location of the residence; an opportunity to have a garden level totally open on the river.

Casa L&J in Zapopan, Mexico by Alvaro Moragrega / arquitecto

Monday, October 29th, 2018

Article source: Alvaro Moragrega / arquitecto

Casa L&J sits next to a golf course which influenced the project greatly. An equilibrium between the views and privacy was to be achieved for the clients. The result is an L scheme with the main volume of the house serving as barrier between the private areas and golf course. This volume is done entirely in steel and glass with a pitched roof with black, flat tiles.

Said volume functions as a ‘shotgun shack’: an elongated distribution of spaces that permeates from the very public to the private. On one end, where the main entrance is, a great living room has a fireplace, living area, piano and dining area. A stair case is located on one side next to wooden box that encloses the bar and storage area. This piece of fixed furniture intentionally blocks the views towards the garden and forces the user to contemplate the golf course. Next to the dining room a rammed earth volume, which contains the pantry, laundry room and guest bathroom, separates the great living room from the kitchen and family room, which operates oposite to the living area. It is enclosed by a similar fixed piece of furniture that houses part of the kitchen, a book case with the TV and a small stove. It blocks the view from the golf course and forces itself toward the garden and pool area. Next to the family room, a double hight art studio es located at the end of the volume and has it’s own work patio on one end and on the other the hallway that connects to the bedroom wing of the house.

FOLDING into SERENITY in Taipei City, Taiwan by 317studio

Monday, October 29th, 2018

Article source: 317studio 

The owner of this project, who had lived in Japan for a long time, has a unique taste for wood of space and paper art.

The core concept is “folding paper”.

We studied its folding process from flat to a 3D box so that can contain functional objects and serene atmosphere inside.

This movement concept allowed us to form a very simple space that can be folded inside. With the technique of extension in that long space, the floor is extended to the wall, and along to the ceiling.
