In 2011 the sons of Herminia took over the running of the family butcher’s shop. Located on the road 66 in Celrà, it has remained hidden from passing travellers, with only the local habitants shopping there. After years of hard work, the brothers decided to renovate their facilities to continue offering to their customers traditional meat and sausages.

The museum is designed to house objects of treasure, and is also a treasured object of fascination. It is an identifiable cultural icon, giving visitors a memorable experience on the traditional wisdoms as well as the appreciation of the cultural identity of the city.

Kindergarden in Chroscice in Polska, Poland by PORT

Article source: PORT

Children have a drive to be independent and do things on their own. This is a healthy part of normal child development. As children grow, they are able to do more and more tasks. Kids use their 5 senses to discover the world and shape their personality. They absorb surrounding, which affects concentration and harmonious development. Surrounding creates children’s reality, affect knowledge and encourage to develop certain skills. And through all of above makes them happy.

Anglesea beach house in Victoria Australian by ANDREW MAYNARD ARCHITECTS

Article source: ANDREW MAYNARD ARCHITECTS

More frequently holiday homes are becoming little more than transplanted suburban ugliness; the great Australian tradition of the ‘shack’ is in danger of being superseded by bloated mansions with four bathrooms and all the trappings of modern life.

Apartment Refurbishment in Santiago, Chile by enrique browne y arquitectos asociados

 
July 16th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: enrique browne y arquitectos asociados

The Project is the transformation of a 20 year old apartment in a historicist building. Since it´s located in the 6th floor, it has excellent views to a big green area to the west. The remodeling considered a different program from its original, plus a guest room. This and other reasons influenced in the desire of generating bigger and more integrated spaces. The possibilities of intervention were very restrictive because: a) It was a requirement to keep the exterior untouched; b) Almost all the walls were of structural reinforced concrete, and; c) the floor-ceiling height was very low.

Viravent, 112 flats in Cenon, France by Martin Duplantier Architectes

 
July 16th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Martin Duplantier Architectes

The burning issue in Metropolitan Bordeaux is a project of 50,000 housing units. Envisioned and designed to be a real estate opportunity, the overly dense development has created quite a controversy. The Viravent project proposes another paradigm. Built before the beginning of the 50,000 yet still comparable, given the shared design model (sited in the heart of town, but in a diffuse section without access to the ZAC), the Viravent project integrates into an existing urban fabric more than imposing upon it.
