Value in Keeping

The 70-years old house was inherited from Owner’s aunt, who bought the original structure to teach Tea Ceremony. A new living quarter was added later to complete this wooden single-story building. It had been left as storage for years and was too damaged, yet Owner chose to keep the old characters, despite cost & time, than to build a new. Inspired by his wish, the renovation began not just to restore but rather to create a space where the old section merges into the new in a harmonious way. The “Koumori-An” house offers the concept of “Value in Keeping” which no new house can imitate.

Novell Ikebana in Neemrana, India by Design Forum International

 
November 25th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Design Forum International 

Novell Ikebana was planned as a housing development that would cater to the economic and mid-premium segment. It is located in the outskirts of NCR, right off NH8, near the Japanese industrial zone in Neemrana. It was conceived as a utilitarian and functionality-driven housing scheme that will set new benchmarks in housing design in the rapidly developing B-towns in North India. Yet, within the design, there are provisions, avenues, methods and expressions that allow for lifestyle and design to be incorporated artistically and tastefully.

1770 in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

 
November 25th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

1770 is a bold, rustic beach house on a truly unique site on the edge of the Coral Sea. The east-facing house is conceived around a northerly courtyard (which sits in the lee of the wind) with transparent walls allowing panoramic views from all parts of the house. A rustic, raw material palette of stone, silvering timber and textured plaster speaks of the natural weathering that this place is all about.

Municipal Auditorium Of Lucena in Cordoba, Spain by MX_SI architectural studio

Article source: MX_SI architectural studio

The building project housing the Municipal Auditorium at Lucena recognizes the importance of the proximity to the river, the city’s exhibition centre and integration with the landscape as well as the extreme climatic conditions of the area.

The walk along the river provides a spatial sequence based on different gradients of open, semi-covered, covered and enclosed spaces. As a prelude, a large space or open forum is created for crowds to congregate at concerts and outdoor events.

Mont-Àgora in Barcelona, Spain by Pere Puig arquitecte, SLP

 
November 24th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Pere Puig arquitecte, SLP

Santa Margarida de Montbui was a small municipality that the great immigration wave of the nineteen fifties and sixties turned into a dormitory town on the industrial outskirts of Barcelona.

In recent decades it has gradually acquired the basic services that it severely lacked: urbanisation of streets, health care facilities, schools, etc. Still missing though is a cultural centre capable of housing a library, conference room, auditorium and classrooms. In some way, this building represents the end of a trajectory from slum to city.

Retoños House in Quito, Ecuador by ESEcolectivo

Article source: ESEcolectivo

The Retoños house belongs to a large extended family made up of several smaller families. The clients, Alvaro and María, wanted a house in which to bring together their 16 family members, including children and grandchildren. As a close-knit family, they get together very often. Until now, this took place in a small apartment in Quito, so they were looking for a quieter place far from the noise and drab environment of the city.

Salcedo Social Center in Galicia, Spain by Santos y Mera Arquitectos S.L.P.

 
November 24th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Santos – Mera arquitectos

In a cluttered environment we propose a refuge, a wood in small forest cabin, a palisade that filters views but at the same time makes it very open, very permeable to the nearby environment and especially to the square and the adjacent green area a haven. The interior volume is modeled generating small courtyards, transitional spaces where shown the interior wood skin that only comes out in the big hole that crosses the fence to look out over the square giving continuity to the large multipurpose space, allowing incorporate outer space for outdoor activities. One of the courtyards, become larger and more permeable, and it serves like a space for access to the building “patín” mode of traditional houses in the area. The simplicity of volume, color and texture must be enough to convert the center into a small local and an urban reference, giving a friendly and easily recognizable image.
