Cervantes Building in Zaragoza, Spain by saiz+renduelesARQUITECTOS

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Article source: saiz+renduelesARQUITECTOS

This residential building makes the most of a tiny space that enjoys a privileged location on a chamfered sidewalk street corner.

The public space takes the lead. The strong volumen of the building steps back on the corner to emphasize the main access.

Morrison House in Sydney, Australia by Chris Elliott Architects

Saturday, July 16th, 2016

Article source: Chris Elliott Architects

The concept for this house renovation is simple -­‐ a protected and private timber box sits on top of a glass box that dissolves the boundary between house and garden.

The rear of house was a collection of long, narrow, dismal, poky, dark rooms with no view or connection to the garden. There was one small spot of sun – on the back step.

Transformation In Pronda Road Civic 8 in Turin, Italy by G.G. RAINERI

Saturday, July 16th, 2016

Article source: G.G. RAINERI

The measure in question provided for the restructuring and change of use of an industrial building destination located at the center of a quadrilateral of residential buildings. The shed in which we intervened, was placed exactly in the middle of a block of the west area of ​​Turin, near the border with the town of Grugliasco (block between Via De Santis, Pronda road, via Cimone and via Postumia). This is a city area developed after the Second World War, and still partially in the developing; in fact, some of the block buildings have recently been constructued. The intervention  involved the reshaping of the existing building in order to make it habitable. Its location is ideal, since being on the block center of gravity has a right distance from the buildings to have no annoying visual interference; moreover the intervention took place in accordance with the neighbor (the road Pronda 8), which was planning to demolish the existing buildings low to build a new building on front street, leaving the right of way (existing) to enter the lot in object. The existing building has been, so, surrounded by green gardens, partly to other condos in part derived uncovering part of the building itself. The GFA, originally located on the ground floor of the building, was distributed between the new mezzanine and the remaining ground floor. The height of the cover is not changed, the outer walls were maintained in part as boundary walls in part as the walls of the new residence. The most difficult part of the design was to give the proportions of residential building to a building that was built to house production activities. The main elevations are divided by dormers and recesses that mark the number of homes fitted inside. Moreover, the tall, narrow windows (partially obscured by fixed shading) try to give new proportions to the main prospect. The inputs to housing are designed as common compasses. All shutters and entrances are made of silver-colored metal profiles, the shell is finished with “ISOCOPPO” Alubel light gray, and the facades are painted in colored earthenware (red mattonaceo).

Kaleidoscope in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam by CongSinh Architects

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

Article source: CongSinh Architects

The rapid urbanization in several Asian cities has dramatically reduced the living area per person. Especially in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City, most people, sometimes extended families, spend their lives in narrow and long tube houses where they live apart from nature and in dark and unventilated spaces.

Long tube houses for extended families have always been a complicated question for generations of Vietnamese architects.

Las Trancas House in Araucanía Region, Chile by CIA_ARQ

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

Article source: CIA_ARQ

The Las Trancas house is the first of a series of new constructions on this . It’s a starting point for the colonization of this property, located on the banks of lake Calafquen near Coñaripe. A virgin place which must be tamed.

For this first construction, the project’s logic had to be as fitting to local knowledge as possible, because due to the terrain’s characteristics and the difficulties of access, most of the materials, techniques and workmanship used would have to be local, presenting a somewhat technically atemporal construction.
