Mid-Town Triplex in Ontario, Canada by Studio JCI

Saturday, February 21st, 2015

Article source: Studio JCI

The Mid-Town Triplex is an example of urban intensification in an established Toronto neighborhood, providing the Clients with both a principle residence and high value income suites that add to the quality and variety of rental options in the city.  The triplex comprises a basement 1-bedroom unit, a ground floor two-bedroom unit, and a 2300sf, two-storey, 3-bedroom unit for the homeowners. The existing two-storey, brick structure is one of many similar houses in the neighborhood, with a pitched roof and raised front porch with steps.  Sensitivity to surrounding context is a key consideration in the design – existing brick is reused and restored while articulating the additions and incisions in the façade with clean, rectangular volumes.  This juxtaposition clearly highlights new from old while maintaining the cadence of the streetscape. At the ground level, a canopy integrates the separate entries to each unit, creating a singular address for the house. The Clients believe that the good design and quality finishes specified by the architect resulted in higher value – confirmed upon the quick rental of the rental suites above market appraisal.

Civic Center in Ciutat Meridiana, Barcelona by JC Bonham

Article source: JC Bonham

We where asked to conceive a building that contained a public civic center as well as emergency residences.

The facility is located in the midpoint between a school area and a public service zone. The building attempts to occupy the maximum surface possible in order to create a inner public square, since the surrounding neighborhoods are lacking of one.

Villa Escargot in Chiba, Japan by Takeshi Hirobe Architects

Friday, February 13th, 2015

Article source: Takeshi Hirobe Architects

How to “wall in” a space for people? I become more conscious about this question when designing a building in an environment that faces nature, rather than one in a residential area. Therefore, since my first visit to the site, I had been thinking that the building itself should stand robustly and independently.

Residential Building HGH in Steyregg, Upper Austria by [tp3] architekten ZT GmbH

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

Article source: [tp3] architekten ZT GmbH 

The exceptional property with its existing topography as well as the views towards the city of Linz and the industrial area of Voest were starting points for the design of this project. The idea was not to adjust the surrounding terrain to the house but to insert the building into the existing landscape.

Residential building in Staines, UK by Architects of Invention

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Article source: Architects of Invention

The building is seven stories high with descending terraces at the front, which offer views towards the river from the internally situated apartments. While the building is foremost designated as residential, part of the ground floor is occupied with space for retail. The building’s round shape creates public spaces on the ground floor – opening to the north–east between the Strata House and the new development and also from the south-east corner on the embankment by the bridge.
