TMOLO House in Asturias, Spain by PYO arquitectos

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

Article source: PYO arquitectos

Before its conversion, the farmhouse was untouched for over five decades and needed a complete renovation to be adapted for contemporary needs. There were two construction sites: the main house and a stable. The main house was in a very bad condition, overgrown with vegetation, and numerous repairs had to be made to make it livable. The stone and timber structure of the stable was significantly deteriorated and most of the walls had to be replaced.

Terraced-House Renovation in Schaerbeek, Belgium by Edouard Brunet + François Martens

Friday, November 20th, 2015

Article source: Edouard Brunet + François Martens

Taking into account the city’s urban tissue, the project is the renovation of a Brussels typical terraced-house. Originally inhabited by a single family, the house appeared too big and difficult to take care of after the children grew up and left. The owner of the house then decided to sell the last two floors to a friend, in order for him to convert them into his own appartement.

The project for the insurance office is thought as a set design space.
The rectangular space is defined by the customized walls with the work called “ geometric abstract “ made by the Italian artist Rashid Uri:  “…an infinite number of freehand traced lines on paper set up the background for the two monochromatic oil paintings.  36 photocopied drawings with a definite framework has been fixed generating a text: an abstract idiom which its punctuation is given by the painting…”

Renovation and expansion of BLKB Arlesheim in Switzerland by Nissen Wentzlaff Architekten

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

Article source: Nissen Wentzlaff Architekten

The property is located in the historical heart of the municipality of Arlesheim. The plan was to renovate the existing building from the 1970s and add on a small extension. The main reason behind the building work was the decision to move the bank’s entrance to the north-east side onto Bachweg. In doing so, the existing arcade features had to be retained. The two-storey passageway creates a spacious entrance to the bank and is flooded with light. The new construction was deliberately rotated outward slightly from the building lines of the façade.

House 2B in Skopje, Macedonia by BetimZeqiri + BekirAdemi [BINA]

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Article source: BetimZeqiri + BekirAdemi

The house is situated near the historic district of the Municipality of Chair in theCity of Skopje, between the Old Bazaar and Skopje’sFortress. It isone of four houses in a row,situated in an intense urban context. The house was built in the 60s of the last century,with modest and clear modernistic appearance. Unfortunately, it was in a devastated condition. The four houses were built all at once, with a common constructive system,which meant that any physical intervention was extremely complicated. However, with carefullyassorted methods, it was possible to reanimate the house without causing any damage for the neighbors.
