The new office building of the National Institute of Social Security (INSS – Instituto Nacional de la Seguridad Social) is situated in an area of urban development in northern Granada, where a great deal of construction activity is still taking place. With its angular shape, it almost completely covers the triangular plot. The representative new building, which is oriented towards the three surrounding streets, notably contributes towards shaping the newly created cityscape.

Tilt-Shift House in Los Angeles, CA by ANX / Aaron Neubert Architects, Inc.

Article source: ANX / Aaron Neubert Architects, Inc.

The project site for this 2,100 sf residence is a 3,750 sf ascending northwesterly facing parcel with panoramic views towards Los Angeles’ Silver Lake Hills and Reservoir. The residence is situated adjacent to multiple significant mid-century modern homes, including William Kesling’s Vanderpool and Wilson Houses, and the Allyn Morris cantilevered duplex. Due to the adjacency of these neighboring properties and the lack of natural open space available as a result of the limited size and extreme slope of the site, a series of plan shifts were generated to create numerous exterior living spaces within the volume of the residence.

Expo III MF Apartment in Lisbon, Portugal by João Tiago Aguiar, arquitectos

 
November 9th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Tiago Aguiar, arquitectos

The apartment in question is located in Parque das Nações area in a contemporary building.

Although having relatively spacious compartments it really didn’t properly exist a sense of unity between the parts of the apartment. The social area was too partitioned and the existence of different materials in a relatively small space generated a space with lack of fluidity. The stone in the entrance hall and living-room as well as the tiles in the kitchen and in the bathroom created a too dated and cold atmosphere. The idea was to unify as much as possible the atmosphere of the apartment in order to dilute its limits. This concept gained shape with the implementation of a single pavement in cement that would link all the spaces.

Briardene in Hampshire, England by OB Architecture

Article source: OB Architecture 

Briardene is a small development of 2 detached houses on the site of a former bungalow in the village of West Wellow in Hampshire.

Our developer client wanted to maximise the potential of the site with a sensitive but contemporary scheme that would find favour with the planning officers. Our challenge was to convince the local authority and neighbours alike that a net gain of one unit was acceptable on what is quite a restricted site.

House in Hamilton, Australia by Tato Architects

Intellect for Living in Semi-exterior Spaces that are Equivalent to interior

This residence is located in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, Australia. This region is home to the Queenslander — a traditional style of wooden stilted house complete with veranda. The characteristic veranda is an environmental interface for keeping sunlight off the buildings outer walls, and also serves to link residents to their city and community through acting as an entrance porch, and sometimes even a dining room or reception area for greeting guests. In Japan these roles used to be carried out by engawa loggias and earthen floors, but such spaces are now in the process of disappearing. People greatly value the type of lifestyle, which can take place in semi-outdoor spaces. I saw an example of this in a housing catalogue issued in 1939, in which indoor and semi-outdoor areas were displayed in different colors and both of their floor spaces noted down for readers.

The spirit and the personality of the owners influence in the design from the beginning til the end. A restless, rebel and non-conformist character induces that the design of the house adds experiences already lived and dreams up to live.

Headquarters Of Métropole Rouen Normandie in France by Jacques Ferrier Architecture

 
November 8th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Jacques Ferrier Architecture

The headquarters of Métropole Rouen Normandie is a unique, memorable and fitting image on the banks of the Seine in Rouen.

What makes it so unique is how the new building fits in with the surrounding landscape of Rouen. The building’s dynamic profile contrasts with the omnipresence of horizontal designs found along the major port, while its silhouette echoes the renovated industrial buildings on the right bank. The oblique shapes are reminiscent of the silhouettes of cranes and other objects in the port and the bows of the passing ships.
