The Bromptons in London, UK by Roselind Wilson Design

 
September 30th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Roselind Wilson Design

Roselind Wilson Design was appointed to refurbish, including interior architecture, interior design and project manage a 2209 square foot, three-bedroom, three-bathroom duplex apartment on the second and third floors of The Bromptons. The brief was to transform the existing apartment into a secondary residence for the client. Marrying the exquisite architectural detail with the interior architecture of the apartment, we ensured it was up to date in terms of technology, whilst clearly reflecting the personality of the client in order to create a space that felt unequivocally like a home away from home.

KAPKAR/ SF-P7S in Lent, Netherlands by Studio Frank Havermans

 
September 30th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio Frank Havermans

This pavilion KAPKAR.SF-P7S is designed and built for a temporary Building Lab (BOUWLAB) organised by Stichting Fabrikaat. This foundation, based in the city of Nijmegen in the east of the Netherlands is specialised in organizing temporary place making projects. This summer they erected a small settlement along the new shaped river bank on the north side of the city to focus on alternative ways of building and living in a more self organised way and show it to a broader public. This client asked me to design a low budget pavilion meant to program discussions, forums, meetings, small scale exhibitions, lectures and other cultural events during the period of BOUWLAB. Specific wishes were that the pavilion should have a striking appearance, be demountable and transportable to their future location, project ‘GRID” in Nijmegen, that it would provide space for 50 people, and that enough daylight would enter the building. Another wish was that I should collaborate with a MCT, a new company that developed a clever building system called KNØP.

Duplex in Marseille, France by T3 Architecture

Article source: T3 Architecture

Complete refurbishment of this duplex in the center of Marseille by the french studio T3 Architecture. The existing flat suffered from a significant lack of light and its main rooms were constrained by the central staircase.

The architects completely released the heart of the apartment by removing the stairs and most of the partitions. The entrance of the flat now enjoys a generous double height volume that offers a visual communication between the different spaces of the two storeys.

Designed in 1970 by the acclaimed Turkish architect Professor Nezih Eldem, the apartment building is situated amidst the Sultan Ayse Woods in the much sought after district of Bebek.

A clear representative of its era, every apartment has been placed on different elevations on each and every floor. Hence creating a considerably spacious environment whilst preserving an affinity with the human scale.

CCF – Reforma Claudio Fuzaro in São Paulo, Brazil by GOAA

 
September 29th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: GOAA

The strategy to reorganize the program of this house, consisted in taking advantage of its unusual arrangement in order to create a new spatial sequence. The project focused on the transformation of the house facing the street and whose blind facade contained a graffiti made by a neighbor artist and valued by the client. The starting point was to remove all the existing informal constructions followed by the reorganization of the openings, doors and windows, seeking a more fluid integration between internal and external spaces. The adjustment of the courtyards levels created a more connected open space and made room to a rain water cistern, which required a reconfiguration of the residence´s water supply system. Two spatial operations complete the routing: the multiplication of the outdoor space by creating a rooftop terrace and connecting the kitchen to the outside area. The new program is contained within wooden volumes in order to make a clear distinction between the old and the new construction. These volumes are also visible from the street, announcing its internal reconfiguration and adjusting its scale to its surroundings morphology.

Virgen del Carmen Bar in Alicante, Spain by Estudio Arn Arquitectos

Sometimes the fact of building is just about erasing layers. This is the basis of the project for the refurbishment of the “Posito Pesquero”. How to rediscover the inner architecture has been hidden for years.

What initially was meant to be the repair of some humidity and filtrations, turned out to be the full rehabilitation of this historical building, which dates to 1860, to its original value.
