‘Vivarium’ – A Tractor Warehouse Turned Restaurant in Bangkok, Thailand by Hypothesis

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Vivarium, a restaurant designed by a young Thai design agency, Hypothesis, won this year’s INSIDE award in the bars and restaurants category. Announced at the INSIDE World Festival of Interiors in Singapore, the converted industrial warehouse in Bangkok demonstrates the firm’s novel technique of adaptive reuse as a strategy to preserve the project’s contextual history, to create dialectics between the ‘old’ and the ‘new’, and to minimize the project’s construction cost.

Renovation of Alan’s apartment in Barcelona, Spain by EO arquitectura

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: EO arquitectura

The project presents the renovation of an apartment located in a building on the ‘Eixample’ neighbourhood, Barcelona.

Originally, the apartment presented a decayed and dark image due to the excessive subdivided rooms. The patio is very narrow and it scarcely receives light. Except for the two rooms next to the main facade, the apartment was barely illuminated by natural light.

Team Living House in Tokyo, Japan by Masatoshi Hirai Architects Atelier

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: Masatoshi Hirai Architects Atelier

This is a renovation project of an apartment in downtown Tokyo. The client said unintentionally that they want to spend a brilliant time together nowhere else but in their house. Then I thought, “Indeed”. I always find that houses around us are way too far from the reality of each family life and communities, and they all look alike. It seems as if there were no identity in family life, which is ridiculous.

“Finca Feeling in Palma Palace” in Balearic Islands, Spain by Daniele Claudio Taddei Architect

Friday, June 17th, 2016

Article source: Daniele Claudio Taddei Architect

In the historic quarter of Calatrava in the centre of Palma old town buildings are full of history, but time and weather are also talking great toll, very often the palaces are in need of renovation.

And it is in this context that the top two floors of an historic building originating from the 17th century could be joined together with all the roofs creating terraces on 3 levels, taking advantage of the spectacular view of roof landscapes, the cathedral, several churches and the sea, and at the same time enjoying the very quiet green inner court, typical element of the palaces in the medieval city centre.

The reconversion of the Mining Site of Wallers-Arenberg is in the middle of the Agglomeration community “La Porte du Hainaut” which is, at the same time, initiating and owner of this project.

The wish to mobilize this site for a project emanates from several points:

St. Peter’s Renovation in ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA by Glasshouse Projects

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

Article source: Glasshouse Projects

A contempory double story extension clad in zinc boldly pushes the boundaries of this family home in the conservative Adelaide suburb of St Peter’s. Whilst the 5m hipped roof ensures reference to the front of the home, the extension proudly asserts itself over the sloping block, seamlessly connecting to an outdoor timber framed deck, pitched high over an infinity above ground pool. The overall result is a confident statement about modern architecture’s place in such a historic context- it can create a wonderful contrast, redefining our appreciation of ‘elegance’ itself.

J House in Kanagawa, Japan by Domino Architects

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

Article source: Domino Architects 

I renovated a room of an old Japanese apartment into a flat for new lifestyle by inserting several simple wooden boxy volumes.

The room is located in a boundary between an old town and a developing district around Tokyo. From this room on the top floor of the building, we see a scenery like Rear Window from Hitchcock below.
