A former Lisbon dock’s warehouse is to be converted in several lofts. The apartments will have different and personalized characteristics . Interior partitions in exposed concrete will separate the diverse units.
In this loft a series of elements are added to the relatively neutral existing shell, punctuating and ordering space: A stair / bookcase, a fireplace and a wood coated central volume, which contains all services, facilities and several retractable elements, enabling to control the degree of partitioning of space, depending on the needs at each moment. Circulation takes place all the way around the said central volume.

The chapel of rest for the Steinfeld cemetery is designed in the form of two curving formwork elements made of reinforced concrete and appearing as two carefully receptive hands. It is the centrepiece of the redesigned Cemetery Centre which was begun by the municipal parish of Graz under episcopal vicar Dr Heinrich Schnuderl, continued by Christian Leibnitz, the new municipal parish provost, and finally built to a design by Hofrichter-Ritter Architects in 2011.

The expo pavilion is a complex problem of displaying the future of technology, culture, and life with today’s capabilities. To take a look forward and to examine not only what is on display but the aperture that holds that promise of a better city, better life. In the long tradition of Expo innovations, the Shadow Pavilion pushes today’s ideas of formation and structure to the next step; by looking at complex organizations and the integration of the two ideas.

The conception of an architecture pavilion that is universal, timeless and spaceless shouldn’t be connected with the idea of conceiving a meaningless construction. Instead, an architecture pavilion that intent to be contemporary should be a construction that pursuit the architecture itself. Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa says that the renewal of an art, whatever it may be, means rediscovering its deepest essence, and that architecture is a direct expression of the existence, of the human presence in the world.

At the streets Syggrou and Valaoritou takes place a new urban transformation of the city of Thessaloniki, Greece. The old small industry shops are converted to coffee-bars, pubs, alternative restaurants…
The area combines the old with the new, the alternative with the common. And, basically, ‘cheap’ entertainment..
A new place was created there, a coffee-bar, in a building that is said to be the oldest in the town of Thessaloniki. It was built at the end of the 19th century, and was the private house of the famous merchant ‘Allatini’, known as such since 1926.

At the higher level is the house. The metal cantilever looks for lagoon views Its undulations talk to Pampulha. The built volume mixes structures: Steel, concrete, wood complement each other defining supports, closures and roofs. The internal integration of the coexistence space connects to the exterior bringing inward the idea and the distance of the Belo Horizonte’s edge.

Why do healthcare spaces have to be cold spaces?
This has been the underlying question since the beginning of our proposal. In fact there are several activities that go on in a clinical space, some regarding actual medical treatments and others related with social and reception areas. Although one might consider the treatment areas to be central in a dental clinic, this project aims to reinforce the social and humane side of healthcare facilities, by proposing two distinct and opposite environments: the clinic space and the social space. The first is a rigorous, hygienic and professional space, mainly in white materials, that aspires to provide confidence and serenity to the patient. The second is a space for meeting, relaxing and comfort, a way to distance the patient from the clinical mindset.
