The Upper Room in Washington, DC by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Article source: Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Located in the upper room of an ambiguous row house along a typical street within the anonymous grid of a Washington DC neighborhood, the aspiration is a micro-expression of modern space and life as spectacle. The program takes a 650 square foot floor space and designs a master bedroom suite including bed area, closet, reading nook, and bathroom. To do this, all interior walls were removed to free this turn-of-the-century home’s compartmentalized space.

For Pharmacophore: Architectural Placebo, a design-dance installation at the Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York in December 2011, Harrison Atelier (HAt) designed a pharmaceutical-cultural landscape which included a network of polyurethane inflatables lodged within a glazed and steel seating structure recalling both pharmaceutical company facade and medical waiting room. The audience sat within this framework, apposed to the back-lit glass and resting against the inflatables.

Facing Saint Peter in Rome, Italy by arch. Angelo Luigi Tartaglia

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: arch. Angelo Luigi Tartaglia

Rome – Beyond the glass is Rome, the songs and postcards. There is the atmosphere and the irresistible charm of the capital, is its urban rhythm and then there are the buildings. The context of the setting of this house is the Umbertine quarter of Prati, near the Vatican. The setting planimetric is stiff, typical of the dwellings in this area: entrance, corridor, culminating at the end of the kitchen and the bedroom. In one of these buildings Colavita family lives, better known, especially in the United States, such as “lords of the oil.” “We are a mature couple” – said with a slight smile the owner – and both me and my husband wanted to end up in a home intimate and reassuring that it was neither too much nor too contemporary classic.

Article source: BGD Architects

Situated on an exclusive residential street, the owner purchased this waterfront property with the view to engage an architect to create their dream home. The home was designed for a family of four with the brief to achieve ideal spaces for work, rest and play. The internal planning required a clever balance to achieve a house of private spaces with maximised outlooks to the Surfers Paradise skyline.  Corten steel screens wrap the first floor bedrooms providing a veil for the bedroom spaces facing the river and the road.

Villa B in Blankenheim, Germany by Schneider+Schumacher

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: Schneider+Schumacher

In 2010, an architectural and landscape limited competition was launched by the municipality of Blankenheim, together with the Regionale 2010 Agentur. It resulted in schneider+schumacher winning first prize with their finely judged answer to the competition brief. This asked for suggestions as to how the former Roman manor – the Villa Rustica – might once again be made visible to the public. Taking up this challenge as their point of departure, the architects have now enhanced the Eifel region with a decidedly sculptural, walk-in installation.
