Pharmacy Don Bosco in Madrid, Spain by Héctor Fernández Elorza

 
June 18th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Héctor Fernández Elorza 

Carlos, the client told me: “the aim is, essentially, to make a simple pharmacy with a nice economic façade with personality and that it won’t give many problems with graffiti”.

The interior was painted white -so were the wooden shelves- and  some thin fluorescent tube fixtures were placed in line hanged from the ceiling with thin wires.

L’Architecture est dans le Pré in Vendée, France by Claas architectes

 
June 18th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Claas architectes

Some projects are more particular than others, so when my brother asked me to design his house, the personal stakes were great. As a young farmer his financial supports are limited, but he has regular opportunities to build and maintain buildings on the farm. In most cases, they are made of metal fabrics delivered in kit. This know-how combined with its working time flexibility  allowed to conceive the project in self-construction.

The Roof House in Copenhagen, Denmark by Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture

 
June 18th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture

Natural light is an essential element when you build in the Nordic countries. Indirect light has a beautiful cold blue color that reminds you of the proximity to the ocean. The low sun from south adds a warmer yellow light to the spectrum. The Roof House is designed to catch both indirect and direct sunlight at the same time and turn in into an ever-changing experience when walking through the sequence of rooms.

A perforated wall circumferes the house and creates different grades of privacy and windless outdoor spaces. The house is crowned by a roof of sloped surfaces towards all four corners of the world.

Challenge

The challenge was extreme: What to do with an urban space which is 10 x 90 metres in area, with minimal sunlight and a requirement of 200 bicycle parking places? This strip of city floor should give pedestrians (and cyclists!) a pleasant experience and, at the same time, provide a suitable entrance to the commercial areas on ground floor level
