095 Letto in Madrid, Spain by elii [oficina de arquitectura]

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Article source: elii [oficina de arquitectura]

Project for the refurbishment of an old flat in downtown Madrid, for ‘anonymous’ residents that will be sharing their domestic space in the future.

The proposal is arranged around six strips with alternating living areas and service areas. This arrangement optimises the floor space while also guaranteeing the utmost functional flexibility and the incorporation of other possible programmes, such as co-working spaces, a study, offices, etc. A wooden box is installed on the entry axis to divide the space into a public area and a private area, although the system employs a number of swivelling and sliding doors to improve the choice of circulations within the house so that it is possible to lead independent lives while sharing the common elements.

Argumosa House in Madrid, Spain by BEDV – Baroja Estévez Del Valle Arquitectos

Friday, May 5th, 2017

Article source: BEDV – Baroja Estévez Del Valle Arquitectos

The project of CASA ARGUMOSA consists of the integral reform of an old flat in the area of ​​Lavapiés.

The original housing consisted of four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room, all of tiny dimensions. The structure was complex: it consisted of three facades on three different streets, and the angles between them generated three different axes, which left their mark on the partition and structure. The reform has as an idea to take advantage of the three facades of the house, which flood the house with light during all hours of the day, while adapting the housing program to the needs of the new client, a young man living alone: ​​a bedroom, A living room, a work area and a kitchen connected in an open concept. The solution provided consists of the design of a large piece of lacquered wood that contains a working area and that articulates and nourishes the other spaces. This piece of wood can be closed, containing a guest bedroom with bathroom and storage area, or open, converted into work, to the living area. The piece is exempt, so that the spaces are connected and, most importantly, allow the light to pour into the living area from morning to night.

Bazillion Apartment in Vilnius, Lithuania by YCL Studio

Friday, May 5th, 2017

Article source: v2com

In the Bazillion apartment, YCL Studio has drawn a clear line between the day and the night program of this pied-à-terre for two, while simultaneously blurring the conventional division between the ‘wet’ and the ‘dry’ part of a dwelling. The compact apartment, which comprises 45 square meters, is essentially one open space divided into two by a single, ceramic-clad wall. The dwelling is located in a new residential building in the Old Town of Vilnius and has been commissioned by a frequent traveller, who uses it for short stays in the capital of Lithuania.

Bookcafe House in South Korea by KDDH

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

Article source: MasilWIDE

The client has drawn a life where children can run, family communicates each other and communicates with their neighbors, but there are clear limits of the apartments. The most characteristic feature of a book house resembling a book is the bookcase where all books on the bench can be stacked. It had always been the client’s dream to have a house full of books on the one side of the wall. The living room have turned into a study room, and the bookshelves was made on the entire wall with a high floor. The window between the bookshelves was created to relieve the tightness of the walls and the front of the bookshelves became a center of communication where the whole family can gather and spend time. The kitchen is placed facing the bookshelf so that it can communicate with the family in the living room at any time. After closing the sliding door installed in the kitchen, the living room becomes a space like a cafe and becomes a guest room for the neighbors as well as the family. The book house has lots of spaces to read like a book, as ‘The bookcase of the wisdom’, built by using the 9m ceiling height that can be seen at the entrance, ‘Balcony of Romeo and Juliet’, connects between the brother and sister’s rooms on the second floor and ‘Bridge of the never ending story’, which is the nickname of the stiarcase that looks like leading to the sky. These spaces gathered to make the house that open inside and outside, top and bottom unimpededly and coexist.

Article source: Dellekamp Arquitectos

House of Switzerland Pavilion emerges with the celebration of the seventy years of diplomatic relations between Switzerland and Mexico, Dellekamp Arquitectos began to work on the project without a defined program and site, so a modular system was designed based on a triangular grid that allows adaptation to different locations and changing needs of the program, which allowed transformations during the design process. This adaptability feature allows it to be itinerant and a location to multiple sites without damaging the environment.

Mattos House in São Paulo, Brazil by FGMF Arquitetos

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: FGMF Arquitetos

Design a house for a young family was the project’s main point. The steep-sloped site had a unique view to one of São Paulo’s main arterial roads. To use said site to our advantage in the creation of the house’s spaces, the attention to the circulation flows and the leisure area seemed to us like some of the most important questions to be addressed from the very beginning.

FF HOUSE in Jalisco, Mexico by HERNÁNDEZ SILVA ARQUITECTOS

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: HERNÁNDEZ SILVA ARQUITECTOS 

The house is located on a gated community, to the west of the metropolitan area in Zapopan, México. The land is located at the end of the subdivision which you need to access by passing through a roundabout with an old laurel.

The project was developed in a short period of time; however the construction took a little longer than expected but the approved design did not suffer any changes because the owners always respected the original idea.

Dupli Casa in Near Ludwigsburg, Germany by J. MAYER H. und Partner, Architekten

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: J. MAYER H. und Partner, Architekten

The geometry of the building is based on the footprint of the house that previously was located on the site. Originally built in 1984 and with many extensions and modifications since then, the new building echoes the „family archaeology“ by duplication and rotation. Lifted up, it creates a semi-public space on ground level between two layers of discretion. The skin of the villa performs a sophisticated connection between inside and outside and offers spectacular views onto the old town of Marbach and the German national literature archive on the other side of the Neckar valley.

Guaparo House in Carabobo, Venezuela by NMD NOMADAS

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Article source: NMD NOMADAS

In the tropics, the rooms of a house may be inner and outer spaces overlapping each other; nature and the house are everywhere.

It also seeks to express in the house a way of being characterized by understanding the inner and outer as domestic, even in the public and the open; where the exterior and interior are continuous as an expression without barriers of that expanded domesticity.

La Cardinale in Montréal, Canada by L. McComber

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

Article source: v2com

For a long time, this semi-detached house built in the 1950s in Montréal’s Ville-Saint-Laurent neighbourhood was home to a family of three young children. Over the years, many extensions were added to its aging structure. At the back, its broken-up spaces had only one opaque door and four small windows. Built without a foundation and worn by time, the annexes in the backyard were keeping the abundant natural light from coming into the kitchen. After the children fled the coop, the house was due to undergo major renovations, particularly to meet the needs of the owner’s new lifestyle. The owner entrusted his project to L. McComber architects with three goals in mind: open the living spaces, make the most of the natural light and garden view, and preserve the spirit of this family home filled with memories.
