This 50-year-old house is located in a high density residence area, with the typical design of three-story townhouse that you see often in Taiwan. Main problems for this rectangular shaped house include poor daylighting, which is common for houses of this specific shape, and the close proximity to neighboring houses,which poses a privacy and security threat. Also, noises from nearby tourism attractions and night markets are a nuisance.

Consolidate two companies —that finally became one—in the same space and set the standards of how the company´s offices must be around the world is not an easy task. This is why attending the customer´s request and shaping their identity was an opportunity not to be wasted. How we did it? Incorporating in floors, walls and ceilings some details or references that we may find when we board a plane.

New Cebra-School in Aabybro, Denmark by CEBRA

Article source: CEBRA 

At CEBRA architecture we rethink architecture – also when we design schools. In Aabybro, Denmark, a new city school has just been inaugurated. A school that challenges the notion of architecture while at the same time reflecting the urban context.

“With Aabybro School the city is getting a new school inspired by its surrounding environment and where parts of the teaching can be performed outdoor regardless of the weather”, says founding partner and architect at CEBRA, Mikkel Frost. He further explains: “The city of Aabybro is identified by its church, town hall, sport facilities and residential area which mainly are made with pitched roof. Therefore, the pitched roof is the cornerstone of the school’s architectural expression. The pitched roof is brought to focus due to its distinctive shape and slanted eaves which give a unique appearance without being intrusive or alien to the area. It is a modern version of the pitched roof where the eaves ensures attractive outdoor spaces for education and play”.

Yojigen Poketto in Madrid, Spain by everyday life invents itself

 
January 2nd, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: everyday life invents itself 

A dual strategy is applied to this project:

Firstly, the floor plan arrangement is based on an L-shaped service band that integrates the access, wet areas, storage areas and leisure spaces. This frees up the main area, which opens up to the windows and balconies to create a brightly lit atmosphere. The intimate areas are therefore secluded and sheltered from view from the entrance.
