Smallfry in Adelaide, Australia by Sans-Arc Studio

 
September 29th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

The project

The brief called for a takeaway seafood bar, serving the 9-to-5 office worker for lunch and dinner, directly to the street and to a small dine-in crowd. The client knew that he wanted ‘something different’, something that would stand out against other venues in the area and unlike other typical seafood bars. The small site needed to work at maximum efficiency, with a service point to the street key to the operation of the business. The front of house space is divided into two – a sterile and clean service side; and a textural, inviting space for customers. The venue is casual, but refined, considered and unique. Efficient back of house operation and service to the street was prioritised. The kitchen layout was designed in close collaboration with the client and chef to ensure maximum efficiency throughout prep, cooking and service to the interior and street.

Black to light in Barcelona, Spain by Susanna Cots Interior Design

Weightless concrete. Steeled glass. Cubes that levitate and take part in the social and family life of this home where sharing is the leitmotif that pervades the design. Space imbued with light that accentuates the solidity of black, the colour that forges an infinite alliance with white.

Skycrown Terraces in Austin, Texas by Bercy Chen Studio

 
September 29th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Chen Studio

Sky Crown Terraces are two identical and adjacent houses designed and built by Bercy Chen Studio in Austin, Texas. The monolithic form, courtyards, and habitable flat roofs evoke the vernacular of the American Southwest interpreted by Modernism. Inspired by the sculpture of Michael Heizer, Eduardo Chillida, and Jorge Yazpik, the strategy of volumetric subtraction enhances the materiality of the basic conception of the houses as stucco boxes crowned by steel panels. The consequentiality of the vernacular together with the elegance of orthogonal abstraction clad in nakedly simple materials do nothing to distract from the peculiar delights of the understated landscape and raw climate of the Texas Hill Country.

House Komoro in Japan by KASA ARCHITECTS

 
September 29th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: KASA ARCHITECTS

This is a one-storey residential house for a family of four―a couple and two children―and is built in Komoro City, Nagano Prefecture. With views of Mount Asama to the north and the Yatsugatake Mountains far south, I planned a simple one-storey house with a shed roof and an open space in the south side. This property of about 450 ㎡ is in the shape of a flagpole, where the pole part accounts for 80 ㎡. I decided to start with the plan for the environment―the placement and arrangement of the building and the design of the environment for the remaining 370 ㎡. I thought about how to achieve a design for people’s lives to flourish as they interact with the site, carefully identifying each factor individually, such as the flow of movement to the grandparents’ house located next door, handling the cold down wind from Mount Asama, preserving the view on the south side of the Yatsugatake Mountains in the distance, the connection to the outside of the property, the flow of air, etc. Then, by creating a configuration akin to a courtyard by arranging the building in an L-shape and arranging trees on the other side that had a slope to create a lush environment as well as a flow of movement to the grandparents’ house, I aimed to create an environment connected to real nature where families could connect.

Rehabilitation of a Traditional Housing in Moscoso, Spain by LIQE arquitectura

 
September 28th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source:  LIQE arquitectura 

Usually a project involves creating something out of nothing; but sometimes, as in this case, it is about strengthening something that was already there.

A long stone building, with a powerful balcony facing the valley, to the north. An elevated shed leaning on a warped and also excessively long wood beam, with three facades made out of stone and one out of wood, to the south. The Cruceiro Grande, where three religious processions become one, is out on the street, to the east. And an impressive Hórreo supported in stone beams under which one enters the garden, to the west. And then, in the centre: the “eira“, the work yard, sheltered from the wind, the main focus of everything around it.
