Mr Lu Residence by Alfonsoideas Ltd

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Article source: Alfonsoideas Ltd

This is a 35 year old apartment that has total floor area of 86m2 including front and back balconies. It is a 3 bedroom unit and the ceiling height is only 2.4m which is not very high. . The space look rather small and tidy before the renovation , the idea was to open the public space and try to put all the storage in the decent space either against the wall or attach to the corner as if the space could look much cleaner. In order to make the space look bigger , the bedroom behind the living room was converted into a open study area which has very long study desk that can sit for 2 people at the same time. Using the brown tinted glass as the visual barrier to separate the study area and the living space, and yet it look much larger looking out from the study area.The TV wall cabinet extended twice longer so the living room can visually look bigger than before .

Duplex in Marseille, France by T3 Architecture

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

Article source: T3 Architecture

Complete refurbishment of this duplex in the center of Marseille by the french studio T3 Architecture. The existing flat suffered from a significant lack of light and its main rooms were constrained by the central staircase.

The architects completely released the heart of the apartment by removing the stairs and most of the partitions. The entrance of the flat now enjoys a generous double height volume that offers a visual communication between the different spaces of the two storeys.

CCF – Reforma Claudio Fuzaro in São Paulo, Brazil by GOAA

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

Article source: GOAA

The strategy to reorganize the program of this house, consisted in taking advantage of its unusual arrangement in order to create a new spatial sequence. The project focused on the transformation of the house facing the street and whose blind facade contained a graffiti made by a neighbor artist and valued by the client. The starting point was to remove all the existing informal constructions followed by the reorganization of the openings, doors and windows, seeking a more fluid integration between internal and external spaces. The adjustment of the courtyards levels created a more connected open space and made room to a rain water cistern, which required a reconfiguration of the residence´s water supply system. Two spatial operations complete the routing: the multiplication of the outdoor space by creating a rooftop terrace and connecting the kitchen to the outside area. The new program is contained within wooden volumes in order to make a clear distinction between the old and the new construction. These volumes are also visible from the street, announcing its internal reconfiguration and adjusting its scale to its surroundings morphology.

Quinta do Carvalheiro in São Francisco da Serra, Portugal by GSMM architetti

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

Article source: GSMM architetti 

Located in the Serra de Grandola, the plot is characterized by cork oaks and pines forest that dominates the accentuated slope of the landscape on a promontory facing west.

The settlement of the new construction is strictly related to the topography and the surrounding landscape. The compact shape that characterizes the house, aims to limit human intervention in the uncontaminated area. The spaces are organized in a single floor around a square patio that through transparent surfaces and lodges opens to the landscape.
