This project is to create a gallery and office-living space for a landscape architect by renovating a rental property of two-story wooden building located at a short distance from central part of Gifu city by Nagara River. Since this is a rental property, the renovation is focused on finishing of wall, floor, and ceiling rather than changing plan or section plans to create a space. The first floor will be the gallery and the second floor will be the office-living space.

UV house in Italy by OASI architects

Article source: OASI architects

UV house is an project for a young couple, conversion of an old industrial building into a modern urban villa.

The client asked to create a new floor for bedrooms inside the shape of the actual building. Our aim was to preserve the power of the void that space suggested to us.

The concept was simple: a floating slab set into the existing walls that keeps the huge void under it. We made it in concrete.

Modica, like other historical centers of the Val di Noto, owes its special urban configuration to the uncommon nature of the area, combined with the various phenomena of human activity. Many of the homes found in the old part of town are attached homes, and are often an extension to the ancient caves, inhabited since prehistoric times.

Collective housing in Torre Baró, Spain by Josep Miàs

 
December 24th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Josep Miàs

Topographically, the plot, with a pentagonal shape, is in the middle of a slope. In order to take advantage of this situation, the owners suggested a programme of an underground parking, commercial facilities on the ground floor and housing on the upper levels. The project is surrounded by other housing buildings, so it is, in fact, in the middle.
