Kiosks And Public Toilets in Ecatepec, Mexico by LANZA Atelier

Saturday, July 16th, 2016

Article source: LANZA Atelier

When commissioned to design public equipment along the bicycle track at Av. Central in Ecatepec, Estado de México, we saw an opportunity to achieve common spaces at a very low cost in an area that urgently needs qualified public infrastructure. Thus, we proposed three modules of baths and 13 pairs of kiosks intended to create a democratic urban fabric.

Blue Jay Way Residence in Los Angeles by McClean Design

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Article source: McClean Design .

This house is located on a spectacular lot above Sunset Strip with panoramic views of down town and west Los Angeles all the way to Santa Monica, the Pacific and Catalina Island. The design of the house maximizes access to the view such that all the main living spaces look out over it. The house is large almost 7000sf total and is divided in half by a water feature and a pool. Our client wanted a house designed around a long pool and this became the central design element of the project. It begins adjacent to the driveway as a water wall around which the entry sequence is wrapped. Upon ascending to the main level of the house, the water element becomes an ornamental pool before dropping into the spa below, after which it becomes a 75’-0” long lap pool the end of which is cantilevered over the slope into the view. The entry to the house is a glass bridge over the pool below. The master bedroom and study are located on one side of the pool, the living areas on the other. Below are several guestrooms, a media room and a four car garage. The living room and master bedroom are cantilevered over outdoor spaces below and appear to hover against the background of the city below. The palette of materials is soft contemporary with extensive use of concrete, wood and stone.

Loft Grandpa in Horto, Brazil by MEIUS Arquitetura

Thursday, May 5th, 2016

Article source: MEIUS Arquitetura 

The loft is located in the old garage / workshop residence built by Henricão own in the 50’s, located in the Garden neighborhood in BH.

The project arose from the need Grandpa Henricão (Henrique Fernando Tetzç) to have a new place to live with accessibility, as access to the inner area of the house happens for a very long ladder and Grandpa with its 92 years (20 / 04/1923) could not overcome all the steps in an easy way. And with that he went to rent part of the house where he lived to the nearby hospital.
