Forest of Grid in Japan by YDS Architects

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: YDS Architects

This is a 6-story housing complex built in a shopping street. Life in an apartment is often isolated from the city nearby and loses public spaces.

We considered the meaning of ‘living together’, and tried to connect the housing with city by designing public spaces.

46 SOCIAL DWELLINGS FOR RENT AND STORES in Seville, Spain by gabriel verd arquitectos

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Article source: gabriel verd arquitectos

The project was built in an area of residential expansion in the outer suburb of Seville, in the south of Spain.

The small size of the plot and the high housing density that was required suggested a court-type solution. The patio played a key role as an area for social interaction and made it possible to achieve the objective of giving the 46 apartments (2 or 3 bedrooms) two prospects – on the inner courtyard and on the street.

The Ten at South Person in Raleigh, North Carolina by in situ studio

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Article source: in situ studio

The Ten at South Person was designed for a vacant site in downtown Raleigh. The project is a new housing format for Raleigh – modern, affordable, and possessing row house DNA. The design maximizes square footage at low cost, builds from defining characteristics of a surrounding historic district, and creates a healthy streetscape via stoops and the play of materials and relief on the street facade. The units sold in only six days at a price that was the least expensive per-square-foot housing offered in downtown in years. Despite its modern form, the complex is nestled comfortably within the neighborhood.

9 Subsidized Row Houses in Murcia, Spain by Mariano Molina and Sergio Carrillo

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Article source: Mariano Molina and Sergio Carrillo 

The project is located at a small village in the North area of the municipality of Lorca (Murcia), inhabited by some 150 people, and belongs to a plan developed by the city council to promote the permanence of young people at their hometowns. Designing a project with this purpose made us think, in the first place, about the idea of belonging to a roughly defined group- in this particular case the young people from Las Terreras- but expressing, in the second place, the individuality of each of its members.
