Loft Grandpa in Horto, Brazil by MEIUS Arquitetura

 
May 5th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: MEIUS Arquitetura 

The loft is located in the old garage / workshop residence built by Henricão own in the 50’s, located in the Garden neighborhood in BH.

The project arose from the need Grandpa Henricão (Henrique Fernando Tetzç) to have a new place to live with accessibility, as access to the inner area of the house happens for a very long ladder and Grandpa with its 92 years (20 / 04/1923) could not overcome all the steps in an easy way. And with that he went to rent part of the house where he lived to the nearby hospital.

Renewed Classic Eichler in Sunnyvale, California by Klopf Architecture

Klopf Architecture, Growsgreen Landscape Design, and Flegel’s Construction partnered to bring this mid-century atrium Eichler home up to 21st century standards. One owner’s mother grew up in an Eichler, which gave them a deeper appreciation for the style of the home (that same mother is also responsible for the Eichler quilt in the master bedroom photo). They loved Eichlers, so while they wanted the house to work better for their family and provide a little more elbow room, they also dreamed of living in a colorful warm mid-century modern home with natural wood like the original Eichlers. They entrusted Klopf Architecture to respectfully expand and update the home, while still keeping it “classic”. The Klopf team helped them open up the kitchen, dining, and living spaces into one flowing great room, expand the master suite, replace the kitchen and bathrooms, and provide additional features like an office and powder room, all while maintaining the mid-century modern style of this Silicon Valley home.

House in Litoral Alentejano by aires mateus

 
May 4th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: aires mateus 

The program includes four houses and a water tank. The water tank will be a square of whitewashed plaster where a pool is found and a line draws the shower.  The placement of the several houses will be decided by each owner.  The first house is a square. The living room is disposed around a courtyard that provides indirect lighting. Secondary compartments inhabit the interior of thick walls that form the central living room.  These areas, compressed by a lifted ground and a lowered ceiling, become spaces which group to limit and define the “exterior volume,” emphasizing it as the main space of the house.

SAN JERÓNIMO 17 in Granada, Spain by CUAC ARQUITECURA

 
May 4th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: CUAC ARQUITECURA

Saint Jerome 17 is a workspace, an office that brings together concepts and materials displaced within a local situated in the historic center of Granada. Marked by the presence of a strong structure made of brick walls 60 cm. wide and wooden floors from the late nineteenth century, this place is a palimpsest of successive interventions to wich we adhere us with recycled elements: a series of shuttering wood pieces is used for the creation of a channeling-cabinet infrastructure for network cabling and storage of books or models; six wooden doors, some metal shutters and pieces of glass saved from its demolition with several metal profiles from the refurbishment of a house in Granada are assembled for the formation of new holes. Even the plasterboard fragments left without starting by the previous tenant are connected and transformed into a new infrastructure for electricity and lighting. A 4×1 meters high door taken from our old studio is finally transferred as a cornerstone. Saint Jerome 17 is a project born of opportunity, made of what we find in the place, with the movement of materials from previous works or even with the discovery of unexpected historic contiguities. It is possible to make visible this dynamic, as well as reveal their different strata, mapping and modeling each brick, her wounds, dignifying its heritage presence as part of a continuous history of overlapping elements that we incorporate both minimizing energy invested as our presence.
