G-ROC in Barcelona, Spain by Nook Architects

Just when we thought that we had closed a cycle which CASA ROC, TWIN HOUSE, and ROC CUBE, one of the old apartments on the same building became vacant ahead of what was expected, so G-ROC became our fourth intervention on the building.  With three similar interventions finished, it was easy to identify a common denominator in terms of solutions, therefore defining and strengthening the distinguishing traits of this assignment.

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates

For FRAME, a low cost and short construction period were realized by substituting regular wooden frameworks for exposed concrete with FRP (fiber-reinforced plastic) that can be converted.

This house, with a studio for a husband who is a fashion photographer, is located in an area with flooding risks from torrential rains. Therefore, the entrance level is raised by 800 mm. The studio level on the first floor is lowered to maintain the ceiling height.

Casa Gallardo in Mexico DF, Mexico by AT103

Located in one of the most important historical areas in Mexico City, on a narrow site (7.00 x 25.00 meters) that has an entrance to another site at the end, this house responds to the specific characteristics and legal constrains of its milieu.

After different volumetric studies, one on solar impact determined that the house be transformed from one with a single-line body into an S-shaped one. The S shape allowed for the permeable area of the house to be distributed between two patios; it also generated, at the same time, an open area and light and ventilation inlets.

The headquarters of the unified building institutions of the province of Perugia (Centro Edile per la Sicurezza e la Formazione and Cassa Edile) acts as a connecting element within its very heterogeneous semi-peripheral urban context, both typologically and figuratively. This is characterized by a combination of the macroscopic scale, represented by warehouses and shopping structures, and the microscopic one, represented by detached dwellings.
