Expo III MF Apartment in Lisbon, Portugal by João Tiago Aguiar, arquitectos

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

Article source: Tiago Aguiar, arquitectos

The apartment in question is located in Parque das Nações area in a contemporary building.

Although having relatively spacious compartments it really didn’t properly exist a sense of unity between the parts of the apartment. The social area was too partitioned and the existence of different materials in a relatively small space generated a space with lack of fluidity. The stone in the entrance hall and living-room as well as the tiles in the kitchen and in the bathroom created a too dated and cold atmosphere. The idea was to unify as much as possible the atmosphere of the apartment in order to dilute its limits. This concept gained shape with the implementation of a single pavement in cement that would link all the spaces.

Cross Street Bankstown in Australia by Tony Owen Partners

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Article source: Tony Owen Partners 

Bankstown Gardens is a 9 storey signature apartment development consisting of 54 units, in a landscaped garden setting.

The building is located on a prominent corner in Sydney’s Bankstown. The building is curved at the corner to reinforce the corner and present as a gateway in the streetscape. The dynamic design utilises a framework of sun control fins to create an exciting frieze on the façade. The diagonal geometry articulates the façade whilst allowing for large expanses of glazing and external planter devices. The transparency of this material is juxtaposed with the lightness of the white screens to create a vibrant and light façade.

Fighting House in Seoul, South Korea by studio_suspicion

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Article source: studio_suspicion

Sageun-dong in Seoul is a topographically isolated village. The southeast side of the village is surrounded by Cheonggyecheon stream and Hanyang University, while the north side is surrounded by the adjacent hill. The Saguendong-gil road that leads to the back gate of Hanyang University serves as the access way to the village, and yet pedestrian access to the village is difficult in many ways since the uphill path is very steep. Unlike any other neighborhoods in Seoul, the unique atmosphere of Sangeun-dong resulted from such isolated topography.​

Paddock House in Hampshire, England by OB Architecture

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Article source: OB Architecture

Paddock House was formerly a charming New Forest house whose character had been consumed by a series of unsympathetic modern extensions. It had been left unloved for a number of years and had fallen into a rather tired state; and its poor condition was sadly highlighted by the beautiful paddock setting which surrounded the house.

Dr. Schär Offices in Burgstall, Italy by monovolume architecture + design

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Article source: monovolume architecture + design

The company of the Dr. Schär AG is located in the southern part of the commercial area of Burgstall. Because of the steady growth of the company also the space requirement increases and therefore the existing administration block has been extended. Due to the limited base area the building was conceived on three floors. The characteristic of the design of the new part of the building is the sophisticated, restrained and linear architecture. The glass facades create a new light and clear look of the building and also of the whole company. The sun protection is made of slanting glass falkes, it is aimed at a kind of double façade.

The visible Attica panels of the ceiling are covered with white tiles, the flat roofs are designed as green roofs.
