Esteban Housing in Nantes, France by Leibar-Seigneurin

Friday, October 4th, 2013

Article source: Leibar-Seigneurin

The starting point for the architectural approach of this project was a piece of “virgin” land, the form and profile of which gave little indication of the mutations to come.

We therefore considered the site as a starting point, a “base” on which different types of architecture could be developed.

International Social Housing Competition (VIVA) 1st Prize in Ceuta, Spain by IND [Inter National Design]

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Article source: IND [Inter National Design] 

The international competition on Vanguard Social Housing (VIVA) organized by the Spanish Ministry of Housing placed a high emphasis on the relationship of the new architecture with the urban environment under the slogan ‘We Make City’. Addressed to disadvantaged citizens and -as expected in most social housing projects- it had a tight budget. We decided to confront the tightness of the budget by taking advantage of the richness of the site complexity.

Alvenaria Social Housing Competition Entry in Lisbon, Portugal by fala atelier

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

 Article source: fala atelier

The competition sought a new identity for the “Alvenaria” neighbourhood in Lisbon. After many years of indifference, a single intervention was required to resolve the whole site while bringing it back to the present.

The proposal did not intend to encompass all the volumes in a static solution. A module was defined, a cube of 2.55m, and the variations and multiplications allowed the dwellings to develop iteratively.

20 social housing and 3 commercial spaces in Godefroy Cavaignac, Paris by H2o Architectes

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Article source: H2o Architectes

The project of the rue Godefroy Cavaignac in Paris consisted in the rehabilitation of a building which did not meet hygiene and security standards into new social housing.
The agency’s aim was to renew the image of the building in the street while responding to the requirements of the «patrimoine habitat environnement» certification. The project is largely based on the building extension, contemporary reinvention of the bow-window, inserted in the prolongation of the unfinished 19th century façade.

The alternation of voids and solids as well as the diagonal cutting of the volumes break the visual monotony of the alignment of the buildings in the street and offer new and interesting views onto the rue de Charonne.
Inside, the apartments benefit from new space and comfort including, for some of them, a small space for gardening, a loggia or balcony.

The courtyard is transformed into a planted patio which is made visible thanks to a transparent wall from the street. A page is turned, social life is reinvented.

TREVOX 223 in Hills of Naucalpan, Edo.Mexico by CRAFT Arquitectos

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Architects: CRAFT Arquitectos

The project arises from the idea of reusing existing spaces of a house built more than 40 years and generate a housing with these spaces independently for each family member with the constraint of preserving the essence of the building, trying to have the least number of changes and trying to protect original details which in turn must be integrated into the new project.One of the most important factors involved in the design, is the location of the property, which is located in a gazebo with continuous traffic and is the visual culmination of several avenues, this generates: excessive noise, very little privacy and air stream impacts directly on the main facade of the house. Moreover the project is facing south, what makes summer overheat.

This led to our primary need to cover the environmental factor, is create a transitional space between the private area and public areas, without losing connection between these and at the same time will diminish environmental factors. This was achieved with a double façade design to that used bronze glass Reflecta the enormous advantages that this represents, it helps to have a vision outward and in turn limit inward spaces giving privacy to in addition to the use of square-shaped openings that are offsetting the direct effect of the wind, allowing the circulation of the same without directly affecting the internal facade, helps filter over the sun which gives us a comfortable temperature. The outstanding feature of this design is to isolate outside noise and not lose the connection to the same, thanks to this design was created intermediate terraces, binds both contexts and is accessible only from private terraces.

With respect to the inside, absorbed existing aspects of the program, however, according to the needs of the project was to create new areas on the existing line along the outer limit and give freedom to every part of space, the only significant change was the demolition of the hall, which resulted in two separate blocks that are linked by bridges, resulting favorably creating an indoor garden, which makes vestibular function and connect the locked rooms and turn generate more light and ventilation inside.

The interior reflects ambient rhythm and harmony, with the use of colors chiaroscuro lighting creates light games to low intensity contrast with the exterior lighting, the resulting project provides the opportunity to experience different ways and spaces where you are.

Housing block in Valencia, Spain by García Floquet Arquitectos

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

Article source: García Floquet Arquitectos

The building is located on a corner plot in the periphery of the locality of Turís, in the boundary between the urban areas and agricultural fields. It is one of the first constructions of an extension of the rural center, which should accommodate nine homes, a commercial premise on the ground floor and parking in the basement. A monolithic element is proposed in this colonization of the territory, which defines the corner in a blunt way and is established as the first solid piece of reference for future buildings in a still undefined place.
