SS Apartment in Sever do Vouga, Portugal by PAULO MARTINS ARQ & DESIGN

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

Article source: PAULO MARTINS ARQ & DESIGN 

This project refers to the redesigning of a T1 apartment (46 m2), located in attic flat of a 70’s building, situated in a privileged area of Sever do Vouga.

The social room of the building was firstly East facing while the cosy area was West facing. The main goal of the reconstruction was to change both social and cosy areas to the opposite side, allowing a better sun exposure which also made it possible to use the contiguous balcony.

It was also created a box inside the apartment, cleary distiguished with the usage of another colour, where other facilities, such as toilet, kitchen and machines, were placed.

Cantilever House in Seattle, Washington by ROBERT HUTCHISON ARCHITECTURE

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

Article source: ROBERT HUTCHISON ARCHITECTURE

The clients, both working professionals, lived in a small Seattle bungalow for fifteen years on a small site that overlooks Portage Bay and the University of Washington campus to the northeast. They loved the convenient location to the University and downtown Seattle, and the dynamic water views filled with rowing shells and sailboats. But the inefficient bungalow was cold in the winter and hot in the summer, had poor natural light, and suffered from significant water intrusion problems. The couple decided to construct a new house on the same property, one that would distill their urban lifestyle on an equally small footprint, yet that was specifically tailored to the qualities of the site. To assist in financing the project, they chose to devote a third of the available living area to a rentable mother-in-law apartment.
