Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos 

This project does not seek to replicate the typical southeast house (Mayan) but to achieve a modern version that is repeatable and easily constructed in  time and cost, using materials from the region. The design promotes life in the inisde  and also  in contact with the outside, integrating it to its environment and giving continuity to the customs from the region, thus achieving sustainable housing through reuse of water; zero discharge; alternative energies and systems that allow to save energy and resources with the possibility of not being connected to any municipal network.

The project involves the conversion of an industrial building dating from the 19th century into 85 units of social housing, and a nursery with space for 40 cribs, as well as a commercial space and a parking garage. The existing building, which has served a series of varied activities – first as a dairy, then for food processing industries, followed by maintenance workshops and a printing business – was built on a trapezius plan around a courtyard covered with an industrial glass roof sheltering delivery docks.

Pearl Marzouq Complex in Ras, Kuwait by PAD10 Architects

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Article source: PAD10 Architects

Of resemblance to the social housing typology, Pearl-Marzouq complex, ‘Lou’lou’at Al-Marzouq’, embodied the complete opposite; a private housing for the affluent. Built in the early 70’s on al-Ras, a peninsula-like landform; with remoteness from the city center, al-Deira, yet at a distance close enough to be gazed at. With its red roof tiles and warm sandstone walls, the building infused a Mediterranean feel to the Arabian Gulf. For white collar expats partaking in the spur of Kuwait’s economy, it was home away from home. Similarly, it was convincing for well-to-do locals to substitute the privacy of their single residences, seeking a new ‘urbanized’ experience, by claiming their prime villa-like duplexes and penthouses with an elevated vantage point back to the city and its sea. The excitement inherent to this dense typology, was further amplified by subverting the building law to equate the number of floors to skip-stop elevator corridors. Connecting midway to duplex apartments, the area (sqm) was almost doubled, as the building height from its surrounding.
