Wednesday, December 14th, 2016

Article source: B.L.U.E. Architecture Studio 

Renovation of tenements in Nanluoguxiang. The small house is the home of three generations, five people. We don’t want the intimate feeling in this family disappear, and to create individual space for every member at the same time. Therefore, the basic concept is to provide each person a relative private living space, but to keep the opportunity of interpersonal communicating in details.

Condo Hôtel de Ville in Québec, Canada by ACDF Architecture

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: ACDF Architecture

The Hôtel-de-Ville Residence is a multifamily residential project in the Plateau Mont-Royal district of Montreal. This historic workers neighbourhood offers a variety of architectural richness, including the extensive use of traditional red clay brick. The project consolidates a block corner with an existing twostorey building through the construction of a new three-storey building that cantilevers over the existing volume. The project is distinguished by creating unity and cohesion between a patrimonial building and contemporary architecture, through a simple stripped-down language. For ACDF Architecture, the Hôtelde- Ville Residence was an opportunity to reflect on the expression of contemporary urban architecture.

MP House in Sesma, Spain by alcolea+tárrago arquitectos

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: alcolea+tárrago arquitectos

The commission began in a private competition, in which our office was selected not by a particular project, but by the attitude showed to the clients to build a maximum house with a very small budget in a plot with a very sharp slope. And not least, the involvement and commitment, perhaps beyond any logical reason, to propose successive approximations to the project (up to five preliminary projects and a full executive project with its visa) before the final solution.

Jaegersborg Watertower in Klampenborg, Denmark by Dorte Mandrup Architects ApS

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: Dorte Mandrup Architects ApS

Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter ApS won in 2004 the competition to convert Jægersborg Water Tower into a mixeduse building. On the upper floors, student housing units mark the perimeter of the existing structure. Each unit is expressed by a protruding crystal-like add-on that brings daylight into the apartment, and offers unobstructed views to the surrounding landscape. Together, the crystals and the communal balconies add both a human scale, and a new sculptural layer, that emphasizes the landmark character of the tower. The lower floors are inhabited by a youth center, and contain several large multipurpose rooms. A combination of tall windows and colored panels create a varied pattern that surrounds the youth center. Large garage-style doors on the ground floor open up to extend the active indoor space into the outdoor playground.

Scenario’s House in London, England by Scenario Architecture

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: Scenario Architecture

This house was a chance to be our own clients. It was purchased with the intention of completely renovating, extending and adapting it to the scenarios of our own family life. It presented us with the opportunity to ‘practice what we preach’ to its fullest expression and create the scenario house. The main design challenge was finding a way of connecting the front part of the house, which originally had two separate Victorian reception rooms with the basement level, a full floor height below, both physically and visually, in order to create a sense of single and connected open living and kitchen spaces.
