The work was about projecting a familiar dwelling of a conventional programming, destined to a couple with two children, in a typical residential area of the Madrid mountain range, an environment without qualification.
In this sense we decided to give a recognizable piece to this disorganized, or better said heterogeneous, area of suburbia without any architectural interest.
As Moreno Galván wrote: “Buildings are created with a particular purpose. But architecture is made from a situation, an understanding of things, an image of the world.”
A show flat in the new modern complex Situla, situated next to the main train station in Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia, designed by GAO architects.
Gao architects designed the interior of the flat, based upon a story of living an urban, dynamic and creative life in the core of the city. We associated the urban lyrics, colourfulness and liveliness of the passing trains with a sort of rough design of certain lofts which can imitate the modern way of living with its fusion of different decorative elements. They can reflect a very artistic way of living due to the choice of materials.
MXMA Architecture & Design is inspired by the foliage of Montreal’s Lafontaine Park in this metamorphosis of a duplex interior to create an innovative living space with abundant wood surfaces.
Located in the heart of Montreal’s Plateau-Mont-Royal borough, facing Lafontaine Park, this turn-of-the-20th-century duplex recently underwent a major interior transformation. The project, realized by MXMA Architecture and Design, was inspired by the park’s abundant foliage.
In the vast rural fields south of Montreal, a new residence takes root. Like a fieldstone unveiled amongst the furrows of a ploughed field, a stratified monolith of slate emerges from the earth. Eroded, sculpted and fragmented by time and the forces of nature, this mineral formation becomes the pedestal upon which new life is anchored.
Carrillo Arquitectos | Forma y Espacio (CA|FE) is a Ofiice of architecture in design as an integral part of functional and rational aesthetics. CA|FE operates within the fields of architecture, urban planning, interior design, landscape design, product design, research and development.
CA|FE present a project of 14 townhouses, located in Los Molinos de Getafe (Madrid), 4-bedroom apartments divided into two levels: ground floor and first floor. This housing model shares the same organization with a constructed area of 146 m2.
The highest value of the plot is a wonderful view stretching out. The idea was for the house to become its framework that crops it. The most appropriate building turned out to be a fully open on mountain landscape one-storey building, which gives the same view to all of the interiors.
The rooftop extension containing multi-level apartments is divided into private and public areas based on the concept of green filter areas, roof folding an views. Starting out from the gridlines of the existing windows the roof shape shifts according to the inner functions and the urban context.
The focal point of the project is a concrete waffle shaped roof, which sits aloft the new living area. Its pre-fabricated peaks and troughs create trenches for rooftop planting, softening the volume, establishing a connection with the leafy surroundings and creating pleasing views from the floors above. From the garden, the roof trenches are out of sight, giving the immediate effect of a simple concrete slab, which contrasts with the texture of the original building.
The ring out of this valley is not changed, it’s the same silent which someone heard long ago, long before your passing.
Nothing ever happens here. But if you have patience when you stopping, you can understand how the atmosphere you breathe in this place is ancient, it’s chimes in ethereal way. It’s the architecture who is talking about this.
You can see, towards valley, the bell tower and the historic tower and between them the castle walls. The space between them has something pleasantly melancholy.
Ruta 40 is a workspace characterised by a strong home-like feeling. The design meets the need for a space for informal interaction as well as a welcoming place to work. The office was created in a light-filled mansard, previously used as a residential flat. Every space has its own precise function. The living room became a comfortable lounge, the kitchen, which is hidden in the lounge, can host up to two work stations, the bathroom is like a tiny spa, with a bench for relaxing and enjoying the view laid out on the walls, and the two bedrooms were transformed into warm, welcoming offices.
