In the Bazillion apartment, YCL Studio has drawn a clear line between the day and the night program of this pied-à-terre for two, while simultaneously blurring the conventional division between the ‘wet’ and the ‘dry’ part of a dwelling. The compact apartment, which comprises 45 square meters, is essentially one open space divided into two by a single, ceramic-clad wall. The dwelling is located in a new residential building in the Old Town of Vilnius and has been commissioned by a frequent traveller, who uses it for short stays in the capital of Lithuania.

The client has drawn a life where children can run, family communicates each other and communicates with their neighbors, but there are clear limits of the apartments. The most characteristic feature of a book house resembling a book is the bookcase where all books on the bench can be stacked. It had always been the client’s dream to have a house full of books on the one side of the wall. The living room have turned into a study room, and the bookshelves was made on the entire wall with a high floor. The window between the bookshelves was created to relieve the tightness of the walls and the front of the bookshelves became a center of communication where the whole family can gather and spend time. The kitchen is placed facing the bookshelf so that it can communicate with the family in the living room at any time. After closing the sliding door installed in the kitchen, the living room becomes a space like a cafe and becomes a guest room for the neighbors as well as the family. The book house has lots of spaces to read like a book, as ‘The bookcase of the wisdom’, built by using the 9m ceiling height that can be seen at the entrance, ‘Balcony of Romeo and Juliet’, connects between the brother and sister’s rooms on the second floor and ‘Bridge of the never ending story’, which is the nickname of the stiarcase that looks like leading to the sky. These spaces gathered to make the house that open inside and outside, top and bottom unimpededly and coexist.

Hostal Ritoque in Región de Valparaíso, Chile by HSU·RUDOLPHY arquitectos

 
May 4th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: HSU·RUDOLPHY arquitectos

In our society we customarily perceive architecture as a luxury, understanding luxury as something valuable and at the same time scarce. We agree with the first component of the definition, but with respect to the second point, we as architects have probably not been persistent enough to build a better quality environment, nor inside or outside the Centres. Now if we define luxury as Bruno Munari does, we realize that, in general, high-level architectural production is associated with improper use of costly materials, which produce an equality gap to the extent that the benefits of good design can only be taken advantage of by those that can afford it.

House of Switzerland Pavilion emerges with the celebration of the seventy years of diplomatic relations between Switzerland and Mexico, Dellekamp Arquitectos began to work on the project without a defined program and site, so a modular system was designed based on a triangular grid that allows adaptation to different locations and changing needs of the program, which allowed transformations during the design process. This adaptability feature allows it to be itinerant and a location to multiple sites without damaging the environment.
