Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

Article source: RAULINO SILVA ARQUITECTO, UNIPESSOAL LDA 

Vila do Conde apartment is on the 3rd floor of an 80’s building not very qualified in the design and finishing materials, which is a duplex by the use of the attic area.

The project intentions were to reorganize the spaces, renovate the finishing materials and define a new environment with the furniture design.

Facing South, the living room and the kitchen share an open space with access to the balcony. Facing North, one of the rooms was transformed into an office space and the other remained as the main bedroom.

El Establo in Alajuela, Costa Rica by Plup! Studio Costa Rica

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

Article source: Plup! Studio Costa Rica

Located in a rural area in the outskirts of San Jose, is [El Establo]. A project that was thought to have a very honest relationship with both its natural and constructed context. The concept of the project stems from the structures for the stables, very common in the area that regularly has horse’s establishments.

A relatively warm zone throughout the year motivated us to implement climate conditioning strategies such as long overhangs and cross ventilation, typical of tropical architecture. The area, although it is 20 km from San Jose, has conditions closer to the dry tropical forest.

The Stealth Building in New York City by Work Architecture Company

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018

Article source: Work Architecture Company

This residential development consists of a complete gut renovation and new construction behind one of New York’s most beautiful and oldest cast-iron facades. It required a careful approach to the blending of contemporary architecture with historic preservation. New York City’s Landmarks Commission required any rooftop addition to be invisible. The building, however, is located on a highly-visible corner with a low, two-story building across the street. This meant that the building’s roof was visible from almost three blocks away.

Article source: RSAI, RS Arquitectura 

The relation between a building and its immediate context is a constant and ever present factor in architectural design. Sometimes you go for mimicry, integrating into the building the geometry and materials as a respectful nod to the surroundings.
