America Apartment in Porto Alegre, Brazil by 0E1 ARQUITETOS

Monday, January 29th, 2018

Article source: 0E1 ARQUITETOS 

The America apartment was designed as a residence for a couple. The project sought to create a smooth transition providing the greatest possible integration between social-use and private-use environments. In order to achieve this, two main strategies were used: division of social and private functions in different floors and use of structures and furniture that provide flexibility and lightness in the division of spaces. In addition to the unconventional space organization, the client requested the use of residential automation technologies. In this way, the design challenge was established, which consisted in allying spaces and technology in a harmonic and discrete way.

[Gol]Khaneh in Alborz, Iran by SHABOFFICE

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

Article source: SHABOFFICE

[GOL]KHANEH is located on the outskirts of the city of Karaj, about 60km west of Tehran. It is designed and built as a vacation home for a family of 6.

Two adjacent but separate plots – each about 5000 square meters – form the site for this project. One of the plots was thick with old fruit trees while the other, adjacent to a noisy street with a chaotic line of low-rise residential buildings, was dry and barely had any trees because of a previous fire. Therefore, the plot with few trees and vegetation was chosen as the building site and creating a buffer to maximize privacy and limit views and noise transfer from the neighbouring street to the site quickly became a priority in design.

YOU+International Youth Community in Shenzhen, China by office project

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

Article source: office project

Under the trend of “no real estate speculation”, the urban leasing industry has ushered in a period of great transformation. From renting a room to a good house to a desired lifestyle, people’s understanding of life in the city will gradually rise to a new more valued one. As to the proposition that urban culture will become the lifestyle itself, we try to explore the future through a series of research-based residential design practices. Through the “Piston Room”, we discussed the time utilization of the Beijing ant tribe’s apartment space. Through the “Capsule Home”, we’ve thought about the possibility of new space in the city’s extreme collection capsules. In 2016, we had a chance to systematically explore the “living organism” of a complete city, which gave birth to the ” Home on the Roof ” of Shenzhen Yuanzheng industrial park.
