House in Mouraria, Portugal by José Andrade Rocha

 
March 8th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: José Andrade Rocha

This house in the historic neighbourhood of Mouraria, Lisbon, suffered many transformations over the years that compartmentalised the space. The relation with the street was under explored and the connections between social and private areas were ambiguous.
The intervention aimed to open the social area to the street, uniting the living room and the kitchen in a gesture that occupies the whole extension of the façade, protecting the bedrooms and allowing serenity or agitation in distinct moments.

CRICOTEKA. Museum of Tadeusz Kantor in Kraków, Poland by WIZJA Sp. z o.o.

Any time I manage to make something genuinely new, it is made of well-known elements of surrounding reality. It fascinates me as a kind of perversion, kind of unauthorized, unacceptable operation and I think it is the only way to find something truly isolated in art.

Pace Gallery’s 510 West 25th Street property is a one-story 4,000 sf conversion of a derelict automotive garage into a sleek, minimal art gallery. With twenty-foot ceilings and four new skylights, HS2/Bill Katz Studios created a large exhibition space with plentiful but controlled diffuse daylight.

The first European store of the design brand Zens Lifestyle is situated on one of Amsterdam’s oldest canals and opened its doors November 2014. In this showroom of 32 square meters Zens presents its minimalist dishes and glassware, such as bowls, carafes, mugs as well as coffee and tea sets. SchilderScholte architects have created this delicate shrine-like interior to reflect the quality and design within the collection of this Asian brand. The interior is a synergy of local design methodology with oriental accents. From the outset of the project the architects looked at the differences in culture and used them as a design premise.

Article source: Zaigas Gailes Birojs 

The reconstruction project of the wooden school building was initiated by Europa Nostra foundation in 2001. The purpose of the project was to draw public attention to preservation of neglected wooden architecture heritage by developing an example which would reveal the unique qualities of Riga’s wooden buildings and show contemporary way to their renovation. It was possible to start the reconstruction work only ten years later when European Regional Development Fund financed the project.

Beatrix College Tilburg in Netherlands by architecten|en|en

Ambition
The assignment was the realization of a new building for the VMBO- school as part of the existing Beatrix College in Tilburg. With the population prognosis of the municipality in mind, the new building possibly had to be removed after 15 years, but the life span had to be as large as 40 years. Therefore the budget was based on temporary housing. The combined design- and building time was limited to one year and the existing buildings had to be able to function during construction. Key elements of the Beatrix College for this construction were: exploitation and maintenance with a sustainable and above all healthy school.

Bordered by rue des Orteaux, rue de Fontarabie, and the Passage Fréquel, the Fréquel-Fontarabie block is the last stage of the development of the mixed development zone of the la Réunion neighborhood. This effort has sought to reduce the visible level of in-habitability, build new housing, value existing resources, and design nearby public facilities in an effort to create quality public spaces. The project to build thirty housing units has pursued a dual goal: to reconstruct the older urban fabric through small interventions within an overall framework of sustainable development.
