Folded house in Cas Capità, Marratxí by juana canet rossello

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: juana canet rossello

The site is located in a row housing development , close to the aerodrome and the village of Marratxi and not far from Palma. The area has a mainly residential character with very few premises on ground floor, from time to time a restaurant or a bar. The plot is a rectangular corner, that cannot be entirely occupied, on the contrary the construction needs to set back from the main street and pull forward from the other limit.

The main goal of the Project is to get the maximum space for parking, premises and dwelling as the main demand of the client and we achieved that also providing natural light to all the spaces and cross ventilation to the main ones and creating living and singular spaces in all the construction at different levels.

The strategies we followed are:

1_ The construction is lifted up from the road level.

By doing that, the ramp descending towards the garage ended up beeing shorter so we could get the maximum number of parking spaces and beeing able to provide natural light and ventilation to the garage.

2_ The construction is set back from the street and pull out from the back of the plot.

So the front of the plot remains open which becomes a public space and people can gain access to the premises which could be seen from the street. This difference in height makes the front court to be an in-between space.

The lateral limit of the plot is made by a single wall which also forms part of the enclosure of the premises, with a top part of “fenêtres en longueur” that separates conceptually the dwelling. Where this wall is passing by the courtyards it becomes more permeable.

The back of plot becomes a private courtyard that also incorporates skylights at the ground level to light the garage.

3_.The roofing of the house is folded up.

The program organization follows the logical use’s order in terms of public and private, so the higher you go the more private the space becomes.
The staircase which leeds to the upper level is placed by the party wall and is lighted from a skylight placed at the terrace level. We arrive at the center of the house.

At the interior of the house, the private spaces of the dwelling (bathrooms and bedrooms) are packed by the party wall, there are no corridors.

The roofing is folded up in order to achieve, at the one side a double height unique space to allocate the kitchen, living and dining area, and at the other one, enough height to acommodate a mezzanine which will allow to exit towards the terrace that has views to the Sierra de Tramuntana. The continuity of the roof is given by a window which becomes skylight.

In the main level of the housing a canopy area is created at the front area which will allow to have an external space designed to be protecting the big window with an external skin.

4_The scale of is worked out with the materials.

The external wall is cladded in slate stones as an independent element. Then the folded roofing is cladded in limestone mares. The front and the back of the dwelling is rendered at first level and at ground level has a glass and aluminium facade.

Apartment building complex in Germany by Ambrozoom3D

Friday, June 1st, 2012

Article source: Ambrozoom3D

The project was realized in summer 2011 for a media agency in Germany. As the architecture of the buildings, the brochure layout was clean, simple, minimalist but very elegant, contained only white, grey and a gold print colors, so the visualizations had to integrate perfectly into the design, maintaining the realistic look. Ambrozoom3D realized 8 perspectives (2 for each building, one bird eye and one general south view), and 24 floor plans for each apartment. The floor plans also had to be integrated into the brochure, therefor keeping a minimalist look, with few textures and each of them had to contain some decoration in gold.

Article source: BanG studio

In conjunction with their participation in American Express’ Partners in Preservation program, Congregation Beth Elohim in Brooklyn has commissioned BanG studio to design, fabricate, and erect an art installation inside the synagogue’s main sanctuary. The given theme of the piece is Jacob’s Ladder reflecting the synagogue’s special connection to the story.
In Genesis, Jacob stops for the night en route from the house of his father, Isaac to Paddan-aram. He dreams of a ladder set upon the earth and stretching to heaven. In his dream, angels ascend and descend the ladder. God appears to Jacob promising the land on which he sleeps to him and his descendants. When Jacob awakens he realizes that, “surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.”

Article source: Nabito Architects & Partners

The neighbourhood of Corso Lazio, in the city Of Frosinone, Italy, finally could enjoy its first public space , expected to be ready 35 years ago.

Sensational Garden represents the starting point of a big master-plan to renew and integrate the public spaces and the services to the housing neighbourhood. This lack of public spaces generate an absolute degrade of the entire area, and the neighbourhood has become an unsustainable dormitory. For this reason the project for the sensational garden amplify the idea of a relational space filling the social void with an explosive, playfull, sensorial and interactive intimate room, like a personal living room in a public realm. The garden is constantly in tension between artificial and natural elements.

The city of Turnhout intends to develop this plan area into an ’Innovatiepool voor Life Science en Global Care’ (Innovation pool for Life Science and Global Care). This not only involves research and innovative projects concerning care and living, but also new integrated residential care concepts and an overall high standard public space. Bureau B+B and B-architecten asked themselves how far Turnhout’s aspirations could be translated into a distinctive urban design structure, an identity for the ‘Innovatiepool’ and how could ‘Innovatiepool Turnhout’ be formed into a characteristic urban design typology and corresponding public space. There is a square at the middle of the ‘Innovatiepool’, the central meeting place for the area.
