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.

Dark Horse in Brunswick East, Australia by Architecture Architecture

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Article source: Architecture Architecture 

In a row of workers’ cottages, there is one Dark Horse – a handsome creature. The stepped parapet, centred window, sidelined door and entrance awning are carried with the familiar, unassuming composure of its neighbours. Yet here the materials, stark in their composition, have a distinctly 21st century character, hinting at the contemporary home within.

Casa Portobello in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil by Tripper Arquitetura

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Article source: Tripper Arquitetura 

The project starts from the interlocution between a topography that, concomitantly, shapes and is shaped by architecture. Conceived by the architect Marcelo Moura, from the Rio de Janeiro office Tripper Arquitetura, the residence is composed of a succession of overlapping plans, each one starting from the encounter with the ground to launch itself in cantilever, a fact that ends up establishing a double condition: The house is contiguous to the land, providing a perception of single-storey house on all floors, while the floors become slabs in suspension, that is, terraces in height. Through them, the architectural proposition approaches the tradition of the great Brazilian colonial house – the house surrounded by the generous porch. These solariums and balconies are the intermediation between the intimate spaces of the house and the exuberant natural landscape that surrounds it.

Following the years after the civil war, the economic perils did not allow the city to expand and yet Barcelona experienced a considerable increase of population.  Barcelona’s industrial past allowed it to recover slightly quicker than the rural, more agriculture-based economies of the rest of the country, attracting many families that were in search of highly sought after employment.
