Projecto Homem in Braga, Portugal by Cerejeira Fontes Architects

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

Article source: Cerejeira Fontes Architects 

On the  highest  point  in  the  city  of  Braga the  different temporal  strata of the city can be seen. This is the location to construct the building, connected to this visual memory. The connection  of the present occurs in the courtyards of the building, the location of social activity at the center, the repetition extends into the city’s areas of activities. These connections are registered non-explicitly in the subtraction of masses form the construction  of the building, extending it to the city squares, main streets, buildings and landscape. There is a formal  and social relationship  between  the city and the  building.  A project  for  the  rehabilitating people with  problems  with  substance abuse assumes the  same fragmented   relationship   of  city  life  at  your  feet.  The organization  of  the  architectural   elements, regardless  of the   different   functions   that   compose  the   program,   it provides a formal response for each individual space and is revealed as a tool to transforming it into a piece of the city. The building  consists of  two  platforms  which  fall  within several   blocks   seemingly   independent,  creating   two courtyards:  one facing the  city and the  other  an interior courtyard.

Clea House in San Diego, California by Nakhshab Development & Design, Inc.

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

Article source: Nakhshab Development & Design, Inc.

Designed, engineered and built by boutique San Diego firm Nakhshab Development & Design (NDD), the LEED Gold-certified Clea House, although just minutes from downtown San Diego, is set on a serene Mission Hills canyon slope. This mid-century modern-inspired single family home complements its surroundings and preserves the existing site terrain with a seamless cantilever design.  Elegantly perched on a three-story access column that encases an elevator, a stairway and one “bonus” room per floor, the nearly 4,000 square-foot Clea House functions primarily as a single-level residence in which large open rooms and outdoor spaces flow together with nature prominently on display throughout the home.

TRIBECA NEW YORK N. MOORE STREET DUPLEX by Barker Freeman Design Office

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office 

In this project, two apartments on the 10th and 11th floors of a condo conversion in Tribeca were combined vertically to create a duplex that functioned like a house, with breathtaking north- and east-facing views of the midtown skyline. The owners’ original apartment on the 11th floor became an open living room/kitchen/dining room space with a separate office and family room. The material palette is light and reflective with a variety of neutral textures inserted as focal points. High-gloss lacquered kitchen cabinets reflect the northern light and views into the space. The maple floors throughout were bleached to bring them out as a light textured ground to unify the living spaces. At the entry, two walls at right angles were painted a steel gray to provide depth and focus to the living space. At the stair, a double-height wall of rough-cut tile provides visual interest and sectional continuity between the floors. The stairs were conceived as floating horizontal planes captured between glass surfaces and supported along a center steel spinal stringer. The landing incorporates a bench that perfectly frames a view of the Empire State Building through the adjacent window. The lower level was partitioned off to maximize functionality and privacy. The bathrooms are grouped against the building core, and the central hallway leads to an eggplant-hued plane that redirects the path toward the master suite on one side and a light-filled corner playroom on the other, from which the two children’s bedrooms can be accessed.
