Villa Agava in Casablanca, Morocco by Driss Kettani Architecte

 
March 7th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Driss Kettani Architecte 

This house is projected on a north-south oriented plot and features a blind façade on the street while being largely open on the side and the back with the south oriented garden.

The plan “silhouette” is the consequence of the urban rules and the need to perfectly fit with the adjoining house on the east.

PLICO at the Flatiron in Oklahoma City by Elliott + Associates Architects

Built in 1924 by C.F. Meadors and originally the Como Hotel, this historic blond brick flatiron stood vacant and boarded up for 27 years.  We have been waiting for 20 years for the opportunity to bring this corner to its full potential.  We believe this corner should be the site of an enduring building, a lantern at the east gateway to downtown Oklahoma City.

The project includes the renovation of the two-level flatiron building and the construction of a modern, yet complimentary rooftop addition.

skinnySCAR in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by Gwendolyn Huisman & Marijn Boterman

 
March 7th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Gwendolyn Huisman & Marijn Boterman  

The skinnySCAR project of architect couple Gwendolyn Huisman and Marijn Boterman shows how forgotten empty spaces in the city can be used. Each city has neglected spaces like this, that are unused and underrated. These gaps can be upgraded to complete the urban fabric, while giving it a boost and creating possibilities for new forms of urban living for the adventurous ones. As young designers, Gwendolyn and Marijn are not limited by design traditions and conventions, and they saw the potential and challenge of a narrow gap with extreme proportions in an old Rotterdam neighborhood. In 2012 the process to convince the landowners to sell the narrow plot started, so they could develop it into their own home. After a short construction period of only 4 months in 2015/2016, the contractor left them an unfinished structure. They’ve been finishing the entire interior themselves since then and their design ideas are becoming manifest.

Sensory order in Barcelona, Spain by Susanna Cots

 
March 7th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Susanna Cots

In her new project, Sensory order, Susanna Cots breaks the taboos to create a space far from the conventional: a metaphor that goes from disorder to order through design, materials and a white and organic palette, the latter being the interior designer’s distinctive signature.

Minimally invasive design for a dental clinic

Interior designer Susanna Cots has been able to create an atmosphere of calm in a dental clinic by projecting a space in which the volumes, the sturdiness of solid wood and the unexpected presence of Nature in the form of vertical gardens, welcome patients to a world far from the traditional dentist.

The restoration and transformation for the former Kas Bank building will rejuvenate this national monument converting it into a five-star W hotel. The building, originally designed by F.W.M.

HOUSE FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER in Bretagne, France by studio razavi architecture

 
March 7th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: studio razavi architecture

The defining concept for this house, commissioned by a photographer as both his summer house and studio, was based on developed facade studies which define a simple and smooth building skin varied in height and punctured by openings.

Two volumes define the main living & work spaces, both converge to the North corner freeing up as much space as possible on this small lot and turning all window openings to face South and West. The main space is compressed at the entry and releases up towards the landscape, the fan shaped plan gradually provides more floor area, volume and light. The second volume is exclusively dedicated to the owner’s studio. All rooms and bathrooms are reduced to a bare minimum and provide maximum surface area to living and work spaces.
