Lapa Building in LISBOA, PORTUGAL by João Tiago Aguiar, arquitectos

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

Article source:  João Tiago Aguiar, arquitectos

The Project is about the reconstruction of a building located in Lisbon’s historical city centre.

The existing building in an advanced degradation condition and lacking architectural quality was demolished and completely rebuilt, reshaping its compartmentalization, without distorting the memory of the environment in order to preserve the urban heritage of the neighbourhood, but guided by a contemporary intervention that marks the time of its execution.

NDBS in Paris, France by Atelier Zündel Cristea

Saturday, May 30th, 2015

Article source: Atelier Zündel Cristea

AZC’s project for Notre-Dame de Bon Secours had to manage two major issues. Firstly, it involved rebuilding within the urban fabric of the city by reshaping an occupied site in order to give it greater clarity and adapting it to today’s urban requirements. Secondly, the consideration of how to integrate vulnerable or aging populations into the city, and how this should be addressed architecturally.

Cockfight Coliseum Garden in Lima, Peru by 2.8x arquitectos

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

Article source: 2.8x arquitectos

The Project is born from the idea of recovering an old cockfight coliseum no longer in use, and changing  its purpose without transforming the original space and traces. The coliseum and the  cocks had a big sentimental value for the owners because of a family tradition. This is the reason why the project turned out into the creation of a memorial garden.

Visegrád town center development in Hungary by A+ Építész Stúdió (aplusarchitects)

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

Article source: A+ Építész Stúdió (aplusarchitects)

Visegrád, with its 1800 inhabitants, is considered to be the smallest town of Hungary. The development of the town center is a fine example for how the original exaggerating ideas were altered due to the economic crisis – besides its negative effects – and facilitated the birth of a sustainable development, satisfying the continuous needs of the local community and the temporary demands of tourism.

BAHAMAS HOUSE/HARBOUR ISLAND by Oppenheim Architecture+Design

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Article source: Oppenheim Architecture+Design

Harbour Island is a relaxed yet luxurious getaway perched in the surreal cerulean waters of the Atlantic edge of the Great Bahama bank. In this earnest and timeless place, the architecture for this private residence is conceived as simultaneously powerful, yet comfortable; primitive, yet innovative; casual, yet elegant; raw, yet refined. The result is a sensual and sensitive experience, reduced to its essence through the use of elemental forms and sincere materiality and detailing. The most dramatic view of the ocean is obtained towards the crest of the dunes, the location of this modest home.

DENSE CITY in Paris, France by Fresh Architectures

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

Article source: Fresh Architectures 

Our project has been designed as a unique object, both imposing and securing in comparison with the scale of the neighboring buildings. Its geometry makes it both streamlined and easy to locate. The same material has been chosen to cover the roof and the façades, which gives the building a monolithic and distinctive look. It has been treated in order to be a part of the existing urban environment. As an example, the tiles generate an interesting surface finish by producing both a mineral and monolithic effect. In addition, the glazed surface finish diminishes the deposits from the air pollution. The façades are designed to clean themselves naturally with the rain.
