Housing at St. Sebastian Church in Münster, Germany by BOLLES+WILSON

Friday, September 8th, 2017

Article source: BOLLES+WILSON

In 2009 BOLLES+WILSON won the 1st prize for housing and a kindergarten on the site of the 1960ies St Sebastian Church. It was expected that the emblematic oval form of the church be demolished. Instead the kindergarten colonized the nave. It was opened in 2013 – a much published reuse with interior green weather protected play decks.

2LH House in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Arch. Luciano Kruk

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

Article source: Arch. Luciano Kruk 

After carrying out some market research on the middle classes’ housing needs in the Northern Greater Buenos Aires area, our client, a medium sized building company, learnt how scarce commercial offer of high constructive and architectural quality houses is as opposed to how greater the demand for it. In view of these results, they decided to have a replicable housing prototype designed for them by our Studio: 2HL House.

Piso Parlament19 in Barcelona, Spain by MIEL ARQUITECTOS & STUDIO P10

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

Article source: MIEL ARQUITECTOS & STUDIO P10

Two windows facing a party wall, our point of reference, the beginning of the project… Where serendipity arose and focused our purpose.

Parlament19 is our experiment with reflective ergonomics. A creative distribution of mirrors enticing the glimmer of light, which cautiously entered this third floor Sant Antoni apartment. Inviting the trees and the nature of the barrio into the space.

We extended this design strategy to the internal distribution of space. Positioning a cube of mirrors, acting as a kaleidoscope of light at the geometric hinge of the apartment.

Ink House in Guangdong Province, China by AD ARCHITECTURE

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

Article source: AD ARCHITECTURE

Home is a carrier of our lives and personality, recording the inner minds and feelings. Ink House is a residence of a calligrapher, implying the cultural complex of Chinese calligraphy and adhering to the spiritual realm of nourishing heart by art.

Designers create the space combined with human behavior model, paying special attention to the owner’s living habits and hobbies. The overall layout has a calm and concise tone which is set by ink painting with proper depth of color; the necessary decoration of clear and simple lines matches light and rounded interior design, achieving “extremes meet” effect of hardness and softness. When implemented in the specific design of details, the ink atmosphere is created through items as art painting, light gray natural stone floor, ink-dot-like natural stone wall and customized ink carpet, adding an artistic and human feelings to the rational space form. All in all, the overall design is bold and hard, while the details are fine and soft, showing the pure state of mind.
