NURSERY in Nagykovácsi, Hungary by Földes és Társai Építésziroda

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Article source: Földes és Társai Építésziroda

During the design phase we strived to preserve the scales of the village. We chose the archetypical form of rural houses. Small independent pavilions were the bases of our spatial system which envelopes all three functions: a nursery, health visitor centre and a surgery. Shifting the volumes opened a small piazzetta at the entrance and intimate internal spaces were also formed which all present different exterior qualities. The volumes are interconnected via short glazed passageways.

DOM in Tours, France by Edouard Brunet Architecte

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

Article source: Edouard Brunet Architecte 

Located in the city centre of Tours (France) the project consists in transforming the interiors of a typical post- World War II flat. The rather unpretentious and small flat has been revamped in order to maximise the sensation of space and give it more soul.

Context:

The flat’s surface equals 65 m2 and the external structure has been kept untouched. The existing building was built with basic materials, hence the medium quality. The heating / water and electricity conduits are visible. Since it was built, the flat has not been redesigned or transformed: the flat is partitioned, as it is usually the case for flats from this period.

Bilateral House in Toronto, Canada by Audax

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

Article source: v2com

“Bilateral house is characterized by its two unique façades. The main façade is heritage while the rear is distinctly modern. At first glance, each side appears to be different, however upon a closer look you begin to understand how they are related,” says Gianpiero Pugliese, Principal of Audax.

The homeowners of Bilateral House are a married couple with three girls. They purchased a lot with a 116-year-old Period Revival home in a mature picturesque neighbourhood in the city. As avid collectors of contemporary art and vintage furniture, they wanted to build a modern gallery-inspired home with high ceilings to display their collections artfully. However shortly after purchasing their property, the house was designated as Heritage and could not be demolished.

House of the Acacia in Colombia by David Macias – Arquitectura & Urbanismo

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

Article source: David Macias – Arquitectura & Urbanismo 

Facing the majesty of an old native tree, as a pre-existence on the land to be built, this was the perfect excuse to generate the design of the house. In the middle of the lot and with the natural traces of the passage of time, this natural element was the great actor in the middle of a difficult but important decision, to rescue it and recover its splendor. Decision that led to the architectural design to revolve around it, taking advantage of its virtue as a generator of shadow, helping the home to provide self-regulation and climatic comfort on warm days. The shade, an important aspect for a recreational house in warm weather, was generated by eaves in front, looking for the perfect orientation to minimize the direct impacts of the sun. However, the shadows generated by the same architectural design through its eaves were sufficient for the control of the private areas, reason why and thinking in the best implantation for the house it was decided to isolate the architectural volume towards one of the boundaries, Respecting in a natural way the land adjacent to the tree keeping its roots intact. This decision allowed to generate a center of activity where the main actor becomes the tree and the shadow that it projects, allowing to design a large perimeter terrace, outdoor spaces and recreation that take life under the old native tree.

The House in Forte dei Marmi in Lucca, Italy by FABBRICANOVE Architetti

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

Article source: FABBRICANOVE Architetti

The House in Forte dei Marmi, a work of architectural office FABBRICANOVE, releases a landscape that in the past was place where explosive materials were produced, then military ones, then it was reclaimed as an agricultural land, then it was marked by the concrete of the highway.

Located between the coast and the Apuane Alps, the villa amazes with its distinct and clear features, through which the respect to the particular allocation can be recognized, where the touristic vocation contributed to the development of the place. In the chaos and in the planning approximation of big part of the contemporary Italian construction, the formula to highlight one virtuous example is simplicity.
