Article source: Alventosa Morell Arquitectes 

Memory

This building has been designed after the request, of two sisters, for a bioclimatic house where to live together and independent at the same time. So the project focuses on these clients’ needs.

The building plot enjoys views over the Collserola mount, and it is on a uniform and deep pitch, (30%).

Residence in Paderborn, Germany by Architekten Wannenmacher +Möller GmbH

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Article source: Architekten Wannenmacher +Möller GmbH

The House for a family with a child was completed in 2010 and is located on a busy street in a residential area of the Central German city of Paderborn. In accordance with the predominant development in this area (existing development of the environment), the one-and-a-half storey building has a gabled roof, thereby deliberately integrating typologically into the existing neighbourhood. The House is accessed over a gravel-covered introverted courtyard, which is closed off from the adjacent road by a concrete wall. Also the garage is accessed through the courtyard. It was designed in a way that it merges with the house and is barely noticeable.

The Clinic in Shanghai, China by Hcreates

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015

Article source: Hcreates

The Clinic – by International Rehabilitation Specialists. The first of its kind in Shanghai, The Clinic, is a wellness, and rehabilitation center focusing on each person’s individual needs. The design aims to create an interior that overturns ones idea of the “sterile white walled” hospital environment. Raw materials of concrete, rustic wood, textured glass and industrial lighting have been used to create an intimate boutique style to the common spaces and treatment rooms. The minimalistic and natural finishes give suggestion to a spa interior to instill a feeling of relaxation and healing.

SRK in Meguro, Tokyo by ARTechnic architects

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

Article source: ARTechnic architects

By expanding and adjusting the existing land condition and nature within, I have attempted to create a space which provides dwelling as like a part of the nature.

The shape has been finalized rationally and organically in the forming process of dealing with the site condition and requested function. Not only the result of the form being organic, by paying attention to the organic matter of the planning process, the process itself perhaps produced the organic space.

House and studio in Orlandia, Brazil by Spbr arquitetos

Friday, September 18th, 2015

Article source: Spbr arquitetos

A proper balance as a goal

Two activities: live and work. Its two corresponding spaces, house and studio, have been shaped historically, as two quite clear architectonic typologies.

Our first goal to this project was to combine both in a single small building, firstly keeping their programmatic independence and secondly achieving a proper balance in the whole [not a house with a studio appended, neither a studio with an added house].

It means, we would like to integrate both programs in such a way that both could live together with no conflicts. The studio should not be disturbed when the house is empty. In the same way, the house should not be degraded by an uninhabited studio.
