Casa Ploner in Renon, Italy by MESSNER ARCHITECTS

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Article source: MESSNER ARCHITECTS

The project consists in the partial demolition and new erection of an existing but never completed house from the mid-nineties on the company’s plot. The conversion includes the overhaul of the offices in the ground floor and the construction of an apartment in the first and second floor with a roof-deck. The removal of the gabled roof, the demolition of all partition walls and the modification of the existing apertures made way to redefine a new volume, which would match with the client’s agenda.

Franca House in Brasília, Brazil by BLOCO Arquitetos Associados

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Article source: BLOCO Arquitetos Associados

The Franca House is located in na urban plot in one of the residential areas in Brasília, Brazil, called Lago Norte (North Lake). Here the recent low in the rent prices and the estabilization in the prices of the land have favoured a change in the neighborhood´s dwellers profile. The settlement of young families with children besides the occupation of the houses by new residential programs such as student shared houses have increased the density of inhabitants. In our view this transformation creates a new opportunity to reactivate the idea of the house as an extension of the city and vice-versa, which is a way of seeing the public space that was usual for the families that lived there in decades before. Therefore the fundamental idea of the project was to create a strong possibility of connection between the public space (the street) and the private space (the house).

La Fontaine in Polanco, Mexico by Sobrado + Ugalde Arquitectos

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Article source: Sobrado + Ugalde Arquitectos

Located in one of the most sought-after areas of Mexico City we were given the task of designing a department of 216 m2 just delivered and newly remodeled. The first thing we did was to open large spaces of light and double heights, since the department was very dark, had wasted spaces, corridors and small rooms, leaving many wasted areas; these things are exactly what you should not have a department of this level and cost, so we took on the task of minimizing the circulations and provide the best experience of moving from one space to another.

Project B by JUMA architects

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

Article source: JUMA architects 

For the thorough renovation of an old farm, JUMA architects set out in search of the perfect balance between old and new.

In its previous state, the house – which did have a cosy feel – was entirely lacking in terms of spaciousness, light and vision.

To remedy this, the new design planned for a huge window opening in the rear elevation that would create a view on the beautiful garden and at the same time draw in plenty of natural light. The new joinery clearly distinguishes itself from the existing window openings through the use of a black, simple framework, eliminating all possible confusion about which parts are authentic, and which are not.

Fish Creek House in Victoria, Australia by Edition Office

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

Article source: Edition Office

The house sits firmly along a winding ridgeline on the outskirts of the small township of Fish Creek. The home surrounds itself in a highly textured brickwork wall in response to its exposed position to strong local winds and a nearby country road. This long wall wraps the three nested, black timber pavilions of the house like a rough and coarse blanket and offers them shelter while they sit upon the lower wall edge and gaze out upon the undulating and extraordinary coastline of Wilsons Promontory. The three pavilions are pulled out from each other and from the northern edge of the rough brick wall to allow sunlight to slide deep into a series of sheltered and planted courtyards that offer immediate garden and deck relationships to the interior spaces. These interiors provide a warm and robust palette of timber-lined walls, black-pigmented concrete floors and black form-ply ceilings.

Sea Del House in Bethany Beach, Delaware by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Sea Del Estates is small, gated oceanfront community located in Bethany Beach, Delaware. The majority of the 42 houses located in the community are second homes used primarily during the summer months. Most of the houses were originally constructed in the 1970’s and 1980’s and are simple wood framed structures. To protect against potential flooding, County ordinances require that the houses be elevated twelve feet above sea level. Consequently, these houses were typically framed on wood piles. Building codes also require that enclosed space located below the mean flood level be constructed with “break-away” walls. These walls will come apart in the event of a major storm and subsequent flooding.

Black to light in Barcelona, Spain by Susanna Cots Interior Design

Friday, September 29th, 2017

Article source: Susanna Cots Interior Design 

Weightless concrete. Steeled glass. Cubes that levitate and take part in the social and family life of this home where sharing is the leitmotif that pervades the design. Space imbued with light that accentuates the solidity of black, the colour that forges an infinite alliance with white.
