Av.Roma Apartment in Lisboa, Portugal by Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Article source: Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

The apartment was too compartmentalized in the social areas.

There was only one common bathroom, since the other was conditioned to the maid’s room, only accessible from the kitchen.

The main idea was to bring together living-room, entrance hall and kitchen in an uninterrupted space, giving access to other compartments through a single indoor hall. The elimination of the maid’s room also enabled increasing the kitchen and the reorganization of the bathrooms.

In the 20th century the city management started to reconstruct the city centre twice but the reconstruction has never been finished.

Finally the reconstruction was finished a few years ago: we started to work on it in 2008 and it was finished in 2014.

You can see a long street in the city centre, on the one side of the street there is the old part of the city centre and on the other side there is a 20 storey building with the shopping center, which was built in 1970.

RESIDENTIAL SAN MATEO in Lorca, Spain by ESTUDIO DE ARQUITECTURA NAOS / MCEA | ARQUITECTOS

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

Article source: ESTUDIO DE ARQUITECTURA NAOS / MCEA | ARQUITECTOS

The old Residential San Mateo was one of the most emblematic buildings of the city of Lorca for its special conception with an open central space to Juan Carlos I Avenue. In July 2011, the construction was completely demolished due to the earthquake of 11 May. In October 2011, the Residential Owners’ Association issued a call of design proposals to select the most suitable project for the reconstruction of their houses. In the terms of the competition, the projects design was made conditional on compliance with the ownership structure of the original construction, so that each owner could recover the position that had previously occupied within the building as a whole.

Casa Tabares de Cala in Canary Islands, Spain by Alejandro Beautell, architect

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Article source: Alejandro Beautell, architect

The renovated single family house is located in the historical city center of La Laguna, Tenerife, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Priori to the renovation, the house was ruined due to the abandonment which it had suffered for decades.

It is a traditional patio-house with a structure of massive walls covered by a wooden structure made of Canarian pine called tea. Its composition is simple and its strictly simetric facade still shows the dignity of an old house of the 18th  century. During the course of years the house had been transformed, enlarged, and sometimes damaged.
