Fernando Abbott 866 in Porto Alegre, Brazil by Arquitetura Nacional

 
March 7th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Arquitetura Nacional

The building is located in the city of Porto Alegre. The traditional neighborhood is going through a transition process – the old houses are given way to small and medium sized buildings. The site is located on a corner with a very interesting view of the city and the airport. However, being at a high altitude level, it is strongly influenced by the municipality laws.

Japi House in São Paulo, Brazil by Aresto Arquitetura

Article source: Aresto Arquitetura

The terrain of 1347 square meters located in the city of Cajamar is inserted in one of the regions of greater natural diversity of the state of São Paulo, the region of the Japi mountain range.

The surrounding Atlantic Forest reveals an enormous natural complexity with the abundance of species, forms and colors, exposing a system in balance and very delicate. Thus, the conceptual motivation of the project was to represent this stability through the balanced composition of two blocks with divergent directions, colors and textures, but with identical formats.

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

 
March 7th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: 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.
