House in Soto del Real, Spain by Alberich-Rodríguez Arquitectos

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Article source: Alberich-Rodríguez Arquitectos

The work was about projecting a familiar dwelling of a conventional programming, destined to a couple with two children, in a typical residential area of the Madrid mountain range, an environment without qualification.

In this sense we decided to give a recognizable piece to this disorganized, or better said heterogeneous, area of suburbia without any architectural interest.

As Moreno Galván wrote: “Buildings are created with a particular purpose. But architecture is made from a situation, an understanding of things, an image of the world.”

A show flat in the new modern complex Situla in Ljubljana, Slovenia by GAO architects

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Article source: GAO architects

A show flat in the new modern complex Situla, situated next to the main train station in Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia, designed by GAO architects.

Gao architects designed the interior of the flat, based upon a story of living an urban, dynamic and creative life in the core of the city. We associated the urban lyrics, colourfulness and liveliness of the passing trains with a sort of rough design of certain lofts which can imitate the modern way of living with its fusion of different decorative elements. They can reflect a very artistic way of living due to the choice of materials.

Hemmingford House in Canada by SIMARD architecture

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Article source: v2com

In the vast rural fields south of Montreal, a new residence takes root. Like a fieldstone unveiled amongst the furrows of a ploughed field, a stratified monolith of slate emerges from the earth. Eroded, sculpted and fragmented by time and the forces of nature, this mineral formation becomes the pedestal upon which new life is anchored.

Konieczny’s Ark in Kraków, Poland by KWK Promes

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Article source: KWK Promes

The highest value of the plot is a wonderful view stretching out. The idea was for the house to become its framework that crops it. The most appropriate building turned out to be a fully open on mountain landscape one-storey building, which gives the same view to all of the interiors.

Slab House in London, England by Bureau de Change Architects

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

Article source: Bureau de Change Architects

The focal point of the project is a concrete waffle shaped roof, which sits aloft the new living area. Its pre-fabricated peaks and troughs create trenches for rooftop planting, softening the volume, establishing a connection with the leafy surroundings and creating pleasing views from the floors above. From the garden, the roof trenches are out of sight, giving the immediate effect of a simple concrete slab, which contrasts with the texture of the original building.

Architecture of the time in Faggeto Lario, Italy by Ceresa Architetto

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

Article source: Ceresa Architetto

The ring out of this valley is not changed, it’s the same silent which someone heard long ago, long before your passing.

Nothing ever happens here. But if you have patience when you stopping, you can understand how the atmosphere you breathe in this place is ancient, it’s chimes in ethereal way. It’s the architecture who is talking about this.

You can see, towards valley, the bell tower and the historic tower and between them the castle walls. The space between them has something pleasantly melancholy.

House Lightray in Dnepr by Azovskiy&Pahomova Architects

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

Article source: Azovskiy&Pahomova Architects

It was difficult and diligent work, but as a result we’ve got incredibly charming and soulful house. The original building has neither roof nor finishing, also a part of foundation was absent. We had to work very hard over the architecture of the building and the landscape. The result is a two-storey house of 240 sq m with three bedrooms, dining and living area, a kitchen, a lounge on the first floor, two bathrooms, laundry room and the furnace. The customer wanted to divide a whole space into several functional areas. The lion’s share of the first floor was taken by the living room, where we also organized a dining area. The ceiling height was really a problem, but at the same time, it was the starting point for the entire home concept. We decided to set the rhythm with wooden beams on the ceiling, which helped not only visually stretch the space, but also create the necessary comfort. A fireplace became a beautiful decoration of the living room. We used marble to cover the fireplace. Dining area is located near the window. We intentionally abandoned a textile to open a panoramic courtyard view. Laconic and functional kitchen is separated by a system of sliding panels that reflecting a light. Also there is a comfortable zone for breakfast, which has become a favorite place of the customer. A slate tiles is practical and aesthetic solution for the walls in the kitchen and hallway. We put down the sills to let a light in, what has visually raised the ceiling. On the first and second floor we have made spacious halls with a gallery on the first and work place on the second one.

Narcisse Salon in Beijing, China by B.L.U.E. Architecture Studio

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

Article source: B.L.U.E. Architecture Studio 

Nowadays, more and more people in metropolis prefer living solitary rather than with their families. The concept of “home” is gradually becoming independent from the concept of “family” and becoming more related with public space. In consequence, commercial space will gradually become the other home of urban citizens. Trying to become a breakthrough of traditional retail space arrangement, this design combines the function of beauty, leisure and communication to meet the need of above-­‐mentioned modern lifestyle.
