Casa C in Milan, Italy by Francesco Librizzi Studio

 
September 17th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Francesco Librizzi Studio

A very small apartment within a very “Milanese” building dated 1900. Two rooms plus a bath room, characterized by a narrow footprint compared to the quite high ceiling. Windows, doors, and above all the floor tiles, had finishes and materials survived to another century: something precious to save as a resource for the new inhabitants of this space.

Shangri-La in Sydney, New South Wales by Remote Controlled Lighting

Article source: Remote Controlled Lighting 

The Director DR8 MK2, RCL’s next generation remote controlled luminaire, features a compact design that is ideally suited to the ceiling troughs of the Grand Ballroom. Special snoots fitted to the luminaires help to reduce glare and direct the light. Both the DR7 and DR8 spotlights can be focused wireless using a simple handheld remote controller from floor level, bypassing the need for mechanical lifts or long ladders. This reduces set up time and avoids the costs and dangers typically associated with manual adjustment.

Spectator Group’s Headquarters Office Building in Zagreb, Croatia by Studio Up

 
September 17th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio Up

Introductory Notes – this project’s task was transforming an existing project (reconstruction of a building accidentally found on a lot) for the Spectator Group’s Headquarters. When the project began, a building site was opened and excavation and construction pit protection works commenced, what defined the project’s character from the start. The previously designed reinforced-concrete frame system was kept, while the modifications within the construction system are tied to the staircase’s cores. The idea/work methodology was to essentially keep the constructive element’s state of design while keeping the construction interventions to a minimum.

HOSTEL GOLLY±BOSSY in Split, Croatia by STUDIO UP

 
September 16th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: STUDIO UP 

The “Savo” building, located in the Split city center core, was turned into a shopping mall at the beginning of this century and, by a guerrilla action in 2010, was transformed into a hostel in 100 days. Public communications – escalators, panoramic elevator and the staircase were kept, and shopping spaces were partitioned by a system of walls that contain everything necessary – beds, lavatories, showers and toilets. An urban metropolitan character as well as a continuance of the public realm within a historical membrane were performed.

Polimen House in Biscay, Spain by COLL-BARREU ARQUITECTOS

 
September 16th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: COLL-BARREU ARQUITECTOS

The building accommodates the central Public Safety services for a one million people urban area.

The ground on which the building sits was unstable. It was uncertain. It is the result of having quickly filled an open mine, with pits up to 50 m deep, which formed a cavernous place in its physical reality and its memory.

Carroll House in Venice, California by Dimster Architecture 

 
September 16th, 2014 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Chibi Moku 

This renovation of a single family home in the historic Venice Canals presented the opportunity to reimagine the house. The ground floor was reorganized to an open plan, allowing all rooms access to the view and outdoor spaces. A new wood deck fronting the canals includes an open fire pit and custom benches and planters. The deck and ground floor at the same elevation, serving to extend the living room space to the outdoors, accessible through a triple sliding glass door. The upstairs bedrooms are remote and quiet, with the master bedroom enjoying a private deck also overlooking the canals. In re-organizing the floor plan, a new stair was designed, cantilevering from a wall with no apparent structure, further emphasized by the suspended glass guardrail. The home captures the distinct character of the canal district and its unique personality.
