What we enjoyed the most when doing a project in which we are able to intervene an old building, is the great opportunity to transform it for a new useful life. The project for the restaurant El Presidio Casa Bon gave us for raw material a nineteenth century mansion in Culiacan, Sinaloa, in the northern part of Mexico.

The Quest in Swanage, England by Ström Architects

 
February 23rd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Ström Architects 

“The Quest” is a private house in Swanage (UK); it is a new-build home replacing an ageing bungalow that had been on the site since 1917.

The clients wanted a house for their retirement, but with a keen interest in design and a love of abstract and modern art, it needed to eschew the usual trappings of staid, retirement home design.

Article source: COMAS-PONT ARQUITECTES SLP

All the rehabilitation services for people with mental illness are grouped in this building composed by the repetition of a 6m wide spatial module.  An economic and energy-sustainable constructions system, the domestic scale and the warmth of the interior spaces added to the closed relationship between building and nature makes it a HEALTHY BUILDING.

The building is located next to the main health centers of the city (Vic), surrounded by a park on the outskirts, and its program is basically developed on a ground floor to facilitate the mobility of its users.

VILLA BRAECKMAN-STAELS and GARDEN COTTAGE in Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium by De Smet Vermeulen architecten

PASTORAL MEMORIES, revisited

The opposition between cities and countryside in Flanders has increasingly become a mental rather than a physical one. A long-standing anti-urban policy has led to a thorough contamination – i.e. urbanization – of the Flemish countryside. Multiple networks connect locations irrespective of their urban or rural status, enabling ever more frequent movements, eroding physical boundaries, merging it all into a semi-urban pattern we call the Nebular City. Inside this Nebular City, rurality has become less a fact than a choice, less a self-evident tradition than a mental construction. It is the architect’s task to design this mental construction.

Article source: JJA / Bespoke Architecture

The simple Hong Kong brick-and-mortar shop which opened in 2013, has been described by DestinAsian magazine as a “1950s American diner”, where the “pink-neon logo” and the “retro-tiled floor” suggests a Hong Kong style cafe where “Wong Kar-Wai meets Grease.” It is from this basis that designer, James JJ Acuna of JJA / Bespoke Architecture formulated the basis of their second global location, at the 72 Courtyard complex in Bangkok.

Beates in Barcelona, Spain by Nook Architects with Byn Studio

The architectural refurbishment of this commercial ground floor space was conditioned for the needs of its new use, a design studio and concept store in what had been for the past few decades an archive and educational space.

The commercial space is located on the ground floor of a residential building built in the year 1900 in Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella, the Old Quarter.  The building’s entry and central staircase, which is ventilated through an adjacent patio, is accessed directly from a square.  This results in a U-shaped ground floor that wraps around the patio and central staircase.

FB Office in Lisbon, Portugal by WAATAA_we are all together around architecture

 
February 22nd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: WAATAA_we are all together around architecture

The office is materialized from the transformation of two independent commercial space in a single physically connected one. Apparently in an unnatural way, the resulting unified space is re-divided in three with distinct identities. Two different work spaces in opposite sides and a transition passage that regulates the hierarchical and functional relation between them.

Upon the unveiling of the brand new 1120 sq.ft space housing the Elephant Grounds Coffee flagship in Hong Kong’s chic Star Street Precinct, the project, a work by JJA / Bespoke Architecture, immediately transformed the character of its own site and surrounding neighbourhood, through the passive performance of the design’s warm timber-based materials with an emphasis on spatial transparency through indoor-outdoor oriented planning.
