Waterfront Palazzo Eleven Years On in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Like a good wine good houses age well, improving with the passing of the years.  When compared to the original photographs, taken by Richard Glover in 2004 http://luigirosselli.com/residential/coolong-road , the recent reshoot of this waterfront palazzo shows how the lush Will Danger designed garden has become part of the architecture and how gracefully the building has aged, all the finishes are still fresh and faultless.

The project  located at Robregordo´s cemetery, in Madrid´s mountain range,  satisfies the need of a new adition.

The access to the cemetery, since its last intervention, does not have any cover place to wait for the arrival of neither coffin or ashes. The preexisting access consists in three main elements: the gate of entrance,  the perimetral wall made of irregular granite blocks  as a limit between  outside and inside, and two cypresses symmetrically placed at the entrance to the cemetery.

Villa SSK in Chiba, Japan by Takeshi Hirobe Architects

 
June 1st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Takeshi Hirobe Architects 

This architecture is intended to link the beautiful ocean spreading in front and the rocky mountain behind. Requests from the client are living-dining room with kitchen, bathroom with the ocean view, guest room and spare room that can be used as garage. Courtyard is provided, being surrounded by the main quarter, guest room and spare room. It has multiple functions; it serves as a reflecting pool when filled with water; is used as a dog yard; and also becomes exterior living room extended from the interior. It creates an appropriate distance between the main quarter and spare room, yet at the same time maintains the visual axis from the ocean to the mountain while blocking the view from the street. The structure that links the ocean and the mountain is supported by space truss-arch structure and LVL panel wall structure. Here tunnel-like succession of the wooden frames is realized, without installing support walls in the direction perpendicular to the main axis.

CAMPO DE FIORI HOUSE in Rome by Mohamed Keilani Architects

 
June 1st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Mohamed Keilani Architects

The apartment, located in one of the most historic areas of Rome, is on the third floor of a small building near Via Giulia in Rome. The design was based from the beginning on the valorization of the hall, the wooden beams, brick walls, characteristic features of Roman history, that had been hidden by the various processes that have occurred over the years. I have discover them and combined with the use of natural and warm materials, with a stylish contemporary furniture and with a particular lighting design which was specially developed with the Lebanese society PSLAB. The custom furniture is another important skill in the project, I wanted as much as possible to disguise everyday objects (dining table, chairs or TV using a special mirror designed specifically for the client) in order to make it more minimal space, a Roman antique container adequate for contemporary furnishings, a neon sign and artwork including point out the abstract sculpture of Keilani Salah and \”Studio sul movimento\” by Danilo Bucchi.

The refurbishment of the Hegel Street apartment in Polanco, Mexico City, started with the idea that interior design should faithfully reflect the user’s lifestyle.

A Barn House in the Countryside in Eelde, The Netherlands by aatvos

 
June 1st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: aatvos

Background

The task of conceiving a private home in the countryside south of Eelde in the North of the Netherlands raises the question as to how far the existing typology is suitable, without resorting to historicizing architecture. This local typology is strongly determined by the simple Drenthe barn: straightforward, at a right angle to the road axis, centered in the countryside, without a privacy layer, functional, a single construction layer with roof. Farms fitting this description have already existed for centuries.

Artificial Snow Cave Emergency Shelter in Parche, Nepal by Margot Krasojević Architects

 
May 31st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com

The hut offers a snowdrift frame made from weighted carbon fibre mesh, this contoured landscape mimics the surrounding vertiginous precipices and landscapes, the carbon fibre snowscape creates an artificial snow cave which can be burrowed into and around enabling climbers to inhabit the excavated structure in a similar way to a snow cave. The composite carbon frame catches the snowdrift using snow as an insulating material, as it is a mesh structure pockets of rooms can be carved into the build up of snow as well as air vents to help air circulation, it is possible to further insulate the structure by digging a small pit deeper into one part of the cave floor to provide a place for the coldest air to gather, away from the occupants, the entrance may be partially blocked with chunks of snow to deflect wind and retain heat.
