Ostasilor 8 in Bucharest, Romania by TAG Architecture

Monday, December 4th, 2017

Article source: TAG Architecture

The building in Ostașilor 8 is located in a diffuse, traditional urban fabric of central Bucharest, in which the urban architectural, historical values and the natural environment are protected in their entirety, street texture and built environment alike.

The area has a high living standard and a scenic air and is located at the convergence of neighborhoods with diametrically opposite characters. On the one hand, the limits of the old city center and Cișmigiu Gardens (historically the oldest designed park in Bucharest) point towards a moderate, maybe nostalgic approach, on the other, the proximity of the new and controversial Uranus Boulevard, whose inception has caused a stir due to demolitions of old, derelict areas, pushes towards the exuberance inherent to any beginning.

12 Warren in New York by DDG

Friday, December 1st, 2017

Article source: DDG 

12 Warren is a boutique residential condominium building nestled in TriBeCa offering just 13 full-floor, duplex and triplex residences. Developed, designed and constructed by DDG, 12 Warren is a compliment to the company’s growing portfolio of design-driven residential projects on the East and West Coasts, while being unlike any other new residential building in New York City. The building features a plethora of handcrafted and artisanal details, none more striking than the signature façade of rough-hewn bluestone quarried in upstate New York. The hand-laid façade is already an impressive addition to one of Manhattan’s most desired residential neighborhoods, creating an engaging contrast when seen among TriBeCa’s historic loft buildings and modern glass structures.12 Warren is a boutique residential condominium building nestled in TriBeCa offering just 13 full-floor, duplex and triplex residences.

Londra Housing in Bucharest, Romania by ADN BA

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

Article source: ADN BA

The building occupies one of the few remaining lots in an old neighborhood of historical and architectural value in the central area of Bucharest.

The space-structure gives the urban presence of the proposed building a weight that counterbalances the extent of the glazed surfaces, while the retraction of the central span and the asymmetry of the cornice are aimed at dividing the house into two volumes closer to the neighboring scale.

A3 – Advanced Architecture Apartments in Sofia, Bulgaria by STARH

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Article source: v2com

Advanced Architecture Apartments are harmoniously incorporated into the context of their environment. Two starting points—the mountain and the city, set the overall architectural concept. The plot reserved for A3 is in the border area, where the city and the mountain overflow into one. Lines and clear borders are blurred in smooth and soft forms, allowing everyone to determine exactly where and how to perceive shape and space. Situated in one of the most contemporary areas of Sofia—Bulgaria Blvd., A3 is designed to be relevant, contextual and avant-garde. Some of the most modern and interesting buildings in Sofia are exactly here. On the other hand, a very dominant element of the environment is the mountain, peeking in the future building. The combination of these two powerful components results in a dynamic and modern shape of the building, without harming the function.

Aaron Florian Housing in Bucharest, Romania by ADN BA

Friday, November 17th, 2017

Article source: ADN BA

Aaron Florian Apartment Building, is an honest answer to a particular urban setting: an irregular plot, the closeness of the opposite building raising privacy issues, a blind wall to a difficult neighbour and an inflection of the street. All these produce an atypical configuration – a building with floors successively recessed, the upper floors providing more light to the narrow street and the exterior spaces directing the views along it.
