Perched House in Melbourne, Australia by Rara Architecture

Article source: Rara Architecture

Perched House is a light extension at the rear of an inner city semi-detached Edwardian house that sweeps over your head.

The brief and site are common in inner-city Melbourne properties. Usually, because of the need to pack in as much space and storage as possible, the spaces are susceptible to becoming dark and feeling cramped. We decided to stick to the essentials and neatening up the layout to reduce dead space while playing with natural light to increase the drama and the effect – the space is in fact quite small, but no one would think so.

2073 Offices Building in Maracaibo, Venezuela by NMD NOMADAS

Article source: NMD NOMADAS

The existing building branches two very important and modern avenues of Maracaibo. The building cannot refrain from this responsibility; the current building is silent and unnoticed. That is why the renewal must make it the centerpiece of the whole urban piece that is not muted but clear; intervention strategies are directed precisely to recognize the building in the urban role and strengthen its relationship with the city.

Aresta House in Brasília, Brazil by BLOCO Arquitetos

 
June 8th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: BLOCO Arquitetos

The house is located in a residential area far away from the city center in Brasília. The weather in this part of Brazil is characterized by a thermal amplitude that causes the temperatures to be normally mild in the morning and either hot or very hot during the afternoons. The neighboring lots allows the buildings to be very close from each other, however, the view to the west; the one that is directly exposed to the afternoon sun, has unobstructed views towards the valley.

The Smile Shop Dental Polyclinic in Istanbul, Turkey by Slash Architects

Article source: Slash Architects

The asymmetrical panels starting from the outer facade and flowing into interior spaces creates a sense of canyon experience. Dental Polyclinic that is located in Maslak Uniq Istanbul Shopping Mall, creates a striking appearance with its unusual concept. Space is cracked open by the circulation and the waiting areas which creates the perception of depth in the project. he service and clinic usages are located around the 3 solid walls of the space leaving the mediocre center open for easy access. This also helps to be able to read the usages of the spaces behind by the frames that are sticking out of the walls of the canyon wall. The spaces behind the panels around circulation are totally white, clean and simple which creates a strong contrast between the interior and exterior of the clinic box spaces.

Tello House in Morelos, Mexico by PRODUCTORA

 
June 8th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: PRODUCTORA 

The program of this single-family dwelling is resolved in four staggered volumes each with a 5 x 5 meter footprint. The staggering occurs both in plan and cross-section, and responds to different conditions. The staggered plan responds to the integration into the project of an existing large tree on the site, and the positioning of a garage. The staggered cross-section corresponds to the slope of the site, forming connections between the different spaces that are set off from each other vertically. The double-height dining room functions as the home’s principal space, articulating the program by means of the central staircase that links all of the vertically staggered spaces.

QP Apartments in Sofia, Bulgaria by HAVE Architects

 
June 8th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: HAVE Architects 

The main objective of the project was to create something entirely different from the common residential buildings in Bulgaria, most of which are characterized as “recycled socialistic” panel blocks. There are two types of materials used on the façade – colored metal panels for the “golden shell” and dark tinted glass for the apartments. In between each apartment, there are curtains – some of them are from tinted glass and others from perforated stainless steel. Due to the strict technical parameters of the projected buildings, a big part of the construction is heavily monitored. The project “QP apartments” consists of three individual buildings with various types of housing options and parking on the ground level. The first building is called Q, which houses smaller apartments, while the other building named P, is bigger and includes luxurious penthouses. On the ground level of both apartment buildings, there is place for parking and recreational areas.
