NO.V.A PROJECT in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by STUDIO ARTHUR CASAS

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

Article source: STUDIO ARTHUR CASAS

Part of Italian group ENEL Brasil, aiming Rio’s 2016 Olympics and the challenges of energy and water supply in Brazil, started with the support of Rio’s universities and the city of Niteroi, the project N.O.V.A. (which stands for We Live Tomorrow Now, in Portuguese). It sought to seek alternatives to answer contemporary concerns on sustainability, flexibility and adaptation of architecture to present and future challenges. It is not about forging concepts for a theoretical future; on the contrary, the objective is to break the cliché of a house that never becomes reality and to propose concrete evolving schemes. Existing technologies and behavioral patterns guided the project and the engagement in bringing collective consciousness for problems requiring alternative social behaviors.

A research scientist with an eye for detail approached Studio VARA with a modest vision and a couple of basic practical needs:  First, transform a 1908 Noe Valley cottage– with a history of subpar alterations – into a cohesive modern dwelling.  Second, provide an enclosed garage in a neighborhood with tough parking.

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Article source: TWO IN A BOX – ARCHITEKTEN ZT GMBH

Student accommodation at Hagenberg – a studying and living environment of the highest quality. A new generation of student accommodation will open soon nearby Campus Hagenberg, Upper Austria. The TWO IN A BOX Architekten rely on prime quality. The concept of having separate showers, a communal fridge filled with food beyond expiry date or of sharing a 15 m2 big, early 80s style room with a room mate has been completely outdated.
