STONE HOUSE BY THE SEA in Sardinia by Parisotto+Fomenton Architetti

 
January 25th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Parisotto+Fomenton Architetti

The house is located on the east coast of Sardinia, facing the islands of Tavolara and Molara.

The main objective of the projects (both the renovation of the existing part and the building of the new wing of a holiday house for a family) above all was to set a dialogue with the natural context, so peculiar and to remove everything that did not belong to the place. We, as architects, wanted to take the best out of traditional materials in a very contemporary way which is our recognizable mark.

MullenLowe in Winston-Salem, North Carolina by TPG Architecture

After a successful teaming for the design of their Boston headquarters, MullenLowe engaged TPG Architecture to design its new office in Winston-Salem, NC: a 37,500 square foot space in the city’s newly developed Wake Forest Innovation Quarter. The office design was an opportunity to create a strong communications touchpoint expressing MullenLowe’s identity as a “challenger” in the advertising industry, a scrappy do-everything ad firm with a global reach.

Finishes and furniture were inspired by the raw space; the free form boxes are clad in plywood and dark-gray painted sheetrock, while the chair colors were sampled from the peeling paint on the concrete walls, Image Courtesy © Eric Laignel

The LRF Apartment in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by Paula Martins Arquitetura, Interiores e Detalhamento

 
January 25th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Paula Martins Arquitetura, Interiores e Detalhamento

This old four bedroom apartment has been completely remodelled according to the wishes of a family with two kids who enjoy entertaining friends in an informal atmosphere. To accomplish this family had one wall in the kitchen area demolished, and to make it easier to maintain covered most of the others in wallpaper. Wooden pieces of furniture in the living room provide an air of cosiness to the property, and the coffee table was specially made out of a unique wooden tree trunk, bringing some rusticity to the room. The wallpaper used in the kitchen, in a citric green stripe pattern, adds a nice contrast to the neutral colours in the other rooms. A mirror was placed on one of the walls in order to create the illusion of a bigger kitchen. Glass sliding doors add a sense of privacy when necessary.

little_BIG house in Cleveland, Ohio by robert maschke ARCHITECTS

 
January 24th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: robert maschke ARCHITECTS

The little_BIG house is located in Cleveland, Ohio’s historic Little Italy neighborhood, known for its rich culture and artisanal background. The husband and wife client, both industrial designers, commissioned the project to create a studio for their work and a home to raise a growing family. The residence is located on a dense and constrained urban street away from the idyllic neighborhood center. The site is narrow and bound by three “shot gun” homes to the North, a retaining wall to the East, and a multi story condominium to the South. A former open framed steel warehouse, now used as a covered surface parking structure, is to the west, obstructing views from the site. The imposition of these structures help to inform the design approach.

Hospice Villa Sclopis in Torino, Italy by architetto Michele De Lucchi S.r.l.

 
January 24th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: architetto Michele De Lucchi S.r.l.

The eighteenth century villa owned by the Sclopis family, in Salerano Canavese, was used after World War 2 as an orphange, and later as a higher educational institute. The brief was to convert the complex into an assisted residence for terminal cancer and Alzheimer patients. The project restored the family villa and substituted the adjacent reinforced concrete volume with a new, steel-framed structure to accommodate a hospice. Internal floor heights were adapted to those of the older building, so as to eliminate differences of level and facilitate horizontal circulation. A centrally located stretcher-bearing lift integrates the vertical communications to provide quick service to all rooms. The complex was equipped with new heating, plumbing and electrical systems and medical gas supplies. The service units were re-allocated to the ground floor, the communal areas to the first, and the guest rooms to the upper levels. Wooden brise-soleils screen the glazed fronts of the hospice to soften light entering the rooms and to mitigate the impact of the new construction on the surrounding period architecture. The brise-soleil system is extended to the copper cladding of a neighbouring pavilion, internally reorganised to house the Alzheimer patients’ day centre.
