Caminha Apartment in Portugal by Tiago do Vale Architects

A Graphical Refurbishment by the Sea

Built in the 80’s, this apartment was in dire need of refurbishment. Both its infrastructures and organization were dated, so the intention was to make the most of its potentialities while bringing its living experience to contemporary standards.

With just over 400 ft2 (40 m2) of surface, this small apartment by the sea was unwelcoming due to a choice of darker materials, 30 years of intense use and a not particularly qualified compartmentation (though in tune with its time).

Located in New York’s Little Italy, Karma’s office was transformed by design studio FormNation into a modern space that combines Dutch and American design influences and provides transparency, communication and work-life balances for the employees.

Karma’s design brief was short, but clear: Design a space with 40 desks, ample break out areas, a war room, communal lunch space for 40, that fits the brand, and they had to move in there in 4 weeks.

House expansion in Zugló, Hungary by batlab architects

 
November 8th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: batlab architects

We first met our customers (Anikó and Bálint) in the summer of 2013 who wanted to expand their home due to their growing family. Our task was to build a whole new storey  and a ground floor terrace after removing the hip roof. The family has outlined their requirements for the rooms, however we were given a free hand in the design and appearance.

There was enough time for planning, the customers spent a lot of time mulling over their new home, and we have also redesigned the house multiple times. While one week we thought that something is a good solution, the other week we thought the opposite.

Primary School Doren A in Austria by Cukrowicz Nachbaur Architekten ZT GmbH

 
November 8th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Cukrowicz Nachbaur Architekten ZT GmbH

Doren’s primary school is located on a steep slope in the centre of the village, alongside the church, rectory and town hall. The building also houses a sports hall and preschool. The five storey concrete building explores themes of rotation and the overlaying of multiple layers in horizontal and vertical. A spatial game is created by the shifting orientations as one moves from layer to layer and floor to floor. The external layer of the walls acts structurally, complemented by floor-to-ceiling beams spanning within the building’s depth. One large opening in each beam allows horizontal circulation from layer to layer. The concrete primary structure is legible and tangible from both inside and outside the school building. All non-structural elements are finished in untreated, native Silver Fir. The timber has been worked differently depending on its purpose: the walls planed smooth, the floors finely sawn. The palette for the new school has been distilled to two materials, one structural and one non-structural: concrete and timber. The new public square in front of the school serves both as a playground during breaks and the centre of social and civic life in the village.
