Amidst the urban residential potpourri of South Delhi, with apartments and plotted developments occupying and maximizing literally every square footage of space available, Botanica attempts to create a landmark development within the contemporary residential building typology by creating spacious, high-on-luxury, three-side open apartments in the heart of Delhi. Through its scale, massing and materiality, Botanica aims to create a distinguished architectural character, conceiving an identity for itself as a boutique bio-luxury development, whilst providing spacious and functionally efficient environs for its residents.

Article source: align 

Designers align have worked with Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons on Omeara, an exciting new 350-capacity live music venue, bar and performance space in Flat Iron Square in London’s Borough, which has now opened its doors to the public.

‘I’ve been playing and putting on shows in London for my entire adult life.’ Ben Lovett commented. ‘Without the grass-roots music venues in this city, the band and I simply wouldn’t have achieved what we have, so I have a lot to be grateful for. Over the last few years, London has lost so many of its brilliant music establishments and I want to do what I can to try and reverse that decline.’

Reconstruction of the interior of a house in Domžale, Slovenia

The house in Domžale was originally built in the 90’s. Therefore the interior before the renovation reflected trends of that era. The lifestyle and design guidelines have changed a lot since then and the clients felt the urge to make functional and aesthetic changes.

House M in Möhlin, Switzerland by Jan Skuratowski Architektur

 
March 1st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Jan Skuratowski Architektur

The new single-family house was designed as a separate residential unit and can hold its own next to the existing building from the 80s. It is situated on a partly raised plateau in the south-eastern part of the property. The two buildings differ in their roof design and thus emphasize their autonomy. At the same time, the new building paraphrases the existing building’s design: by its polygonal ground plan, which follows the hill’s shape, and expressive cantilevered floors. Wood was used a material to contrast the rather heavy sand-lime brick of the existing structure. Hierarchically, the new building is supposed to subordinate to the existing building and is therefore set slightly to the rear of the site. The new structure appears like a pavilion and, thanks to the flat roof, has a large accessible roof terrace that expands the small plot effectively. The greening of the roofs is intended to give the new building an animated character and link it with nature and the hill.

Trolley Five in Alberta, Canada by Modern Office of Design + Architecture

 
March 1st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Modern Office of Design + Architecture

Our design for the 17Th Avenue Brewery began with a study of the commercial typologies along 17th Avenue SW. Despite the fact that this corridor is one of Calgary’s most visited destinations, it was apparent that there was very little if any interaction between the building frontages and the street.

Lissen House in Castilleja de la Cuesta (Sevilla), Spain by Studio Wet

 
February 28th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio Wet 

“We carried out the expansion of a detached house, in an urban environment with a city model already closed years ago, a legally protected atmosphere, a building remaining in the plot that customers are willing to exhaust but always under the premise of a budget Limited and with reasonable programmatic requirements.We also add the derivations of the urban regulations -separation to boundaries and maximum fund- and the technological limitations in the local construction.To our methodology we call it critical pragmatism.Through it a project is built Of the tangible thing that always evaluates as contingencies indispensable, never assigning them the name of renunciation.In the end, contingencies become one, its construction.With
our proposal we respect the existing building by action (enlargement is done with a language Totally different) and omission (without transforming the volume or its appearance.) We have also found in the reverberation of the curved motives a vehicle for the visual coherence of the proposal, both for us in the process and for the client in the constructed. The curve as an expression of what is added to the existing building, both internally and externally.

And the result is a slowly developed and slowly built project. Too slowly, we are aware that this is also a luxury, especially for us, and that model of work is bound to disappear.
