Lucky Penny sits in the heart of Chapel Street, South Yarra – one of Melbourne’s most prominent fashion retail strips. The cafe commenced trading in mid-2014, after one of the owners found, by chance, a penny on the ground.

In a lot of 8.66 x 20.50 meters in Nicaragua Street , near the Armenia park , Palermo, city of Buenos Aires , Argentina , we were commissioned the renovation and extension of a house to turn it into a shop. After visiting the property, taking photographs and talking with the owners , we found that there were three very specific data on which we should work. First of all, the existing property, a one level “casa chorizo” (typology of house typical in the city) retaining much of its original architecture. The second one, the commercial program, clearly defined as a shop selling furniture, fabrics and decorative items. Finally, a company that wanted to make itself known and seeks to be recognized as a new shop in the neighborhood.

Villa G in Vilnius, Lithuania by Audrius Ambrasas Architects

 
February 1st, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Audrius Ambrasas Architects

The main architectural idea was provided by its siting in the Pavilniai Regional Park : the house has to dissolve in the landscape. Curved roofs all the way to the ground, and fluid forms extended by timber pergolas, are the most important architectural means achieving this effect. The building is designed on one level. Two boomerang shapes with pitched roofs combined with a shared common zone covered with a flat roof create its spatial expression. The utility zone is located in the northern part (a shed and garage, kitchen, storage room, boiler room, laundry). Four bedrooms and a bathroom face east. The common zone is located in the southwest. The dining-room, recreational and active zones are planned here. There is a terrace behind glass cases under the extended roof.

 Article source: Formosis building studio

Sylhet is a growing city. The city is expanding to the western part after the establishment of public university. The expansion has been boomed after the recent shifting of City Central Jail and Marine academy there. The area is commercializing very fast with time. To meet the growing demand of more built spaces, the land owners have been involved to develop infrastructures at that part of Sylhet city. Reputed architecture firm Formosis building studio has recently designed a commercial building at that sub-urban area at Temukhi. The building is located beside the way to Central Jail and Marine Academy. The building includes four large shops at ground floor and office spaces at first and second floor. The building has been designed in white outlook to create it as a striking sub-urban landmark within green surroundings.
