Mirante House in São Paulo, Brazil by FGMF

 
October 27th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: FGMF

Since first studies, the site determined the residence’s conception logic. Some site characteristics are especially remarkable: wide lot with slightly variable width and sharp slope. In its north end there’s a beautiful view of the artificial lake. The neighbors’ houses provoke shade and a feeling of lack of privacy on both sides of the site’s highest area.

Skylight Tower in La Défense, Paris by Louis Paillard architect & urban planner

 
October 27th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Paillard architect & urban planner

“The opportunity to build apartments at La Défense remains a rare one. All the more so an apartment tower (top floor at 50 m). In fact, some thirty years have passed since the building of the last one. The district of La Défense, willed into existence by General de Gaulle to show the world of the 1960s that France was entering into the modern world of finance and business (the famous “Trente Glorieuses” or thirty-year post-war boom), is a curious above-ground urban mixture, an artificial island, veritable realm of “corporate architecture” punctuated by multitude of high-rise office towers, business centers, rather hollow official monuments, shopping centers and a few public housing complexes, the whole placed atop an immense, windswept concrete slab and irrigated from below by a labyrinth of vehicular arteries, railway tunnels among other piped networks.

L’Autre Vie in Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium by Juma architects

 
October 27th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: JUMA architects

JUMA was asked to accommodate a restaurant in an Art Deco house. Although the exterior suggests otherwise, there were only a few elements that were worth saving in the interior. Only the monumental wooden staircase with a beautifully coloured stained-glass window above it, reflect the grandeur that this property once offered. First a number of walls were taken down to create larger spaces. An opening was created from the entrance hall to the kitchen so that visitors have a direct view of chef Maxence Sys at work.

HSB Kvillebäcken in Sweden by KJELLGREN KAMINSKY ARCHITECTURE

 
October 26th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: KJELLGREN KAMINSKY ARCHITECTURE

Östra Kvillebäcken is designed as a dense and vibrant neighbourhood with a strong focus on sustainability. Therefore, it is a Miljöbyggnad Silver certified neighborhood. Our buildings find inspiration in the inner city and its urban qualities. Artistic decoration related to the location and material treatment gives the buildings their own contemporary identity. The Housing estate forms a green oasis with islands of activity. There are natural meeting places with different themes along the pathway that leads visitors through the neighborhood. The communal hall is a place for celebration, overnight stay or meetings. Adjacent to this room is also a communal facility in the yard with laundry area and space for socializing. The homes are generally space efficient with few awkward spaces. In the design, we have worked with basic architectural qualities: axiality, room connection and views-through.
