House N in Noordwijk, Netherlands by Maxwan Architects + Urbanists

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Article source: Maxwan Architects + Urbanists

Built in 1938, this Noordwijk seaside villa was originally the holiday home of a concrete factory owner. Battered and blustered by the salty sea weather over the decades, the house was in need of renovation. Besides roof replacement and basement repairs, the bedrooms, bathrooms and windows were outdated and some spaces had grown too small for the clients’ requirements. Maxwan’s additions bring new distinctive features to the house, while respecting its original character.

Given the Customer’s request, we designed a Preliminary Study for adequacy, rehabilitation and construction of “School 2027” (Public-Private Partnership) for the District of Maianga in Angola’s capital Luanda. The school will be located on a flat terrain, with an area of about 5 square meters, given the proposed Program of Architectural Renovation of space. Following this proposal, we adopt as a basic premise the initial use of the central space not yet occupied for subsequent demolition of existing blocks, formerly, without interfering with the normal course of lessons.

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.
