Acoustic Shells in Littlehampton, England by Flanagan Lawrence

 
August 13th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Flanagan Lawrence

Sited in a sunken garden beside the beach in Littlehampton, West Sussex, UK, these ‘Acoustic Shells’ act as a stage and shelter for the local community. Prompted by a desire to reinvigorate Littlehampton with its gentility of the early 20th century, the shells materially enhance the public open space of the adjacent greensward and satisfy an essential social need that is not provided elsewhere in the area.

The Itupeva House in Brazil, by Aresto Arquitetura

The house is basically organized in a large block in format with two floors.

The social sector was positioned on the lower floor, which features the living room, dining room, kitchen, home theater, utility room, guest toilet, laundry room, gourmet space and pool. On the ground floor are the garage, the warehouse, the entrance hall, the office and the three dormitories.
The local conditions were decisive for the solutions adopted in the project. The lot is located in the highest part of the condominium, which allowed the creation of large openings overlooking the natural landscape.

This privileged location also allowed a better use of ventilation and natural lighting. The large openings in opposite directions allow the control of the air currents inside the house.

Travelstart in Cape Town, Africa by Inhouse

Already nearing its second decade, Travelstart remains one of Africa’s leading online travel agencies and booking websites. Having recently relocated its Cape Town headquarters to a two-and-a-half-storey set of offices in Longkloof Studios, located just off the bustling hub that is Kloof Street; it is natural that the company should wish to set itself up in a working space that would reflect its efficiency and modernity. The initial interior design concept was inspired by the office featured in Nancy Meyers’ 2015 comedy film The Intern, upon which Travelstart’s CEO wished to model the new space. From there, Inhouse Director, Phillip Wyatt and Senior Designer, Chrismari Loubser, were delighted to help make the vision happen.

House In The Market in Seville, Spain by sol89

 
August 13th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: sol89 

The project arises from an emergency situation: a town hall execution order requires new owners of this 19th century home to intervene on it immediately to repair the pathologies detected by the technical inspection carried out some years before. The urgency and the limited budget conditioned the mode of intervention: the owners decided to start the work themselves. They demolished partitions, removed suspended ceiling and claddings walls, to get to know what the house could hide. In the process in which they move blindly, where to erase is needed more than to draw and where the project goes and comes back, they go slowly discovering latent house that was hidden, veiled under the guise of partitions, mortars and plasters. Along the way, they decide to remove damaged parts, recover blind holes which existed in another time and to give up surface in exchange for volume. They also opt to retain those rediscovered elements that narrate the history of that place assuming that time also builds. During the two-year renovation process, the needs of its owners change.
