Rosa F. Keller Library & Community Center in New Orleans, Louisiana by Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

This New Orleans neighborhood library is comprised of two buildings joined together with the intention that they function as a whole. One building is a historically significant bungalow built as a residence in 1917, sited prominently on the corner of South Broad Street and Napoleon Avenue. The other building, built in 1993 specifically to function as a library, was home to the main reading room and stock areas. Both buildings were severely flooded by levee breaks attributed to Hurricane Katrina. The bungalow was salvaged and raised for future flood prevention, but the modern addition was deemed necessary for replacement by the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA).

Abitare il sottotetto in Milan, Italy by Studio Arcadia Ego

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Article source: Studio Arcadia Ego

The design solution for the apartment started from the need to modify the original project that included the execution of a partition wall in front of the entrance; this wall delimited the area deputed to food preparation closed by sliding glass doors and furniture provided with angular. This solution, however, prevented a rational distribution of the residence, having an area of 30 square meters, could contain only a small table and a sofa. The project, planned to greatly reduce the wall of the kitchen until it becomes a shoulder retaining wall system of open living space which becomes a distinctive design element.

The building is fitted in the plot towards the buildable boundary enclosing itself in a half moon shape and focusing all the rooms towards the sea.

ICEBERG by RIZOMA Architetture

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Article source: RIZOMA Architetture

ICEBERG is an ideal set for a new and innovative hairdressing shop. The shop is located next to coffee shops and commercial spaces so the external brise-soleil, which create the internal privacy, become the main theme of the project. A white wave that from the facade enters in the shop and becomes a wallpaper and modifies the interior space. The interior design reminds a seascape “post-ice-age”.
