M3・KG in Tokyo, Japan by MOUNT FUJI ARCHITECTS STUDIO

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Article source: MOUNT FUJI ARCHITECTS STUDIO

“dialogue” between the old and the new “substance” 
This is a house to be built in Tokyo, for a movie producer couple.
This architecture is consisted by combining L-shaped blocks of reinforced concrete and sequential frames of box-shaped engineer-wood. We put bedrooms, film archive and galley in solid concrete part for security, and living room in engineer-wood part for openness. 
As material that consist an open space that is 6m in height, 5.5m in width, 14m in depth, we choose thin engineer-wood (38mmx287mm).
Main theme for this architecture is to bring out a sense of mass and material, which were denied by modern architecture which pursued “white, flat wall” as a style.
We intentionally left the wood grain of mold on the surface of concrete, and choose textured stones and irons.
It goes without saying that a house is a relaxing place. A house like a white-cube, surrounded by flat, white walls everywhere, gives a person very abstract image.
But that image could only be sensed when we use intellective part of our brain. 
The problem is that we’re not all-intellective-creature. For the people like this client, who do enough intellectual labor on a daily basis, white-cube would only bring sense of fatigue.
The role of architecture, especially the ones for living, is to soothe the sensory side of people, not to stimulate the intellectual side. That’s my take.
Sure, intellectual living would have got some meaning as a fashion at the time when modern architecture was born.
However, now that it became a part of everyday life, its identity has been lost.
We have to examine whether our approach is rational or not every time we build architecture.

Duplex & the City in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Architects

Equivalent to the brownstones of New York, this interwar duplex is a humane scale solution to housing in the Sydney city fringes.

Shoulder to shoulder with other apartment buildings, the original 1920s two-storey flats were transformed into a four storey block with a basement carpark and cellar, a ground floor garden apartment and a two-storey penthouse.

The scissor balconies of the back elevation are angled to offer side views while maintaining the building’s rear alignment with the neighbouring properties. The Council thought but resisted the tempation to emacitate the elevation by cutting it back to a flat façade.

The architecture of the House 28 is an extension of the arid and lush landscape from the Cerrado Biome. A family that sought tranquility and connection with nature commissioned this urban refuge located 10 minutes away from the national congress of Brasilia.

The area of 7000 m2 enabled to spread 850m2 of construction on the ground. Gardens permeate the volumetry and generous windows of wood and glass connect the interior to the landscape.

Moradia Gafanha da Boavista in Portugal by Arch. Adalberto Dias

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Article source: Arch. Adalberto Dias

The plot in Gafanha da Boavista is narrow and long.

The program was interesting and not vulgar for a single family dwelling.

The clients, young couple formed in the Nordic countries, had a different concept of life and another notion of family structure and their relationships.

Three spaces and a corridor, in three volumes, was the concept of the project.

K5 Urban Apartments in Oslo, Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter AS

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter AS

The project is sited in an urban block that remains a rare example of the intimate blend of housing and small-scale industry typical of the nineteenth century. The new structure was designed with special appreciation of these environs. The apartments have differing housing typologies of simplex and duplex units, and they benefit from a study of the interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces. The building’s design is characterized by a distinct architectonic form with functional solutions, thoughtful details, and contemporary overall expression.

Villa Meijendel in Wassenaar, Netherlands by VVKH architecten

Friday, January 6th, 2017

Article source: VVKH architecten

House in dune landscape

A dense forest opens to a dune valley. Sunlight casts shadows of branches and leaves against tree trunks. In the distance, a golfer walks through the empty surreal landscape. This unique environment – trees, light and dunes – influences the design of “villa Meijendel” in such a way as if it has sculpted the house.

Generator Rome in Rome, Italy by DesignAgency

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Article source: DesignAgency

Generator Rome is only a short walk from the Colosseum and Termini Station, in the Esquilino neighbourhood – one of the oldest areas in the city. The property reinvigorates an elegant 20th century residence on Via Principe Amedeo. Its surroundings include cinematic streetscapes, leading to picturesque squares, churches, parks and a vast array of bars, cafés and pizzerias, as well as authentic local markets.

DesignAgency took its inspiration from the distinctive flavours of this diverse and historic neighbourhood, as well as the Italian culture and the Roman trade routes that have left their marks on this area to create a vibrant and welcoming environment with subtle ethnic flair.

A Studio in Bassano del Grappa, Italy by Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Article source: Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin 

The studio was designed starting from the conviction that the rooms were to be designed as boxes, composed in turn by sides and surfaces, evocative from a figurative point of view. Two coloured backdrops were in fact made with shades of blue and sage green, on the other side a wall-moodboard with the notes and suggestions of the projects which are work in process. The presence of the old stone portal was resolved by keeping the traces of the old paint, as opposed to the perfection of the bottom of the wall.The old Venetian floorings and the geometric fishbone pattern of the wooden parquet were preserved and enhanced.The furniture arrangement was designed keeping in mind the functional distances and movements in the studio, with a division between the functional and the more operative spaces and the formal  reception rooms.
