With respect to negotiations with the client and in order to create a maximal usable area, the design switched from an ordinary apartment block of two separate units to two separate triplex and duplex units, because the client was interested in level differences in one single unit.

An undeveloped sixty-foot wide parcel of land, extending three blocks is a result of two residential developments merging in the 1930’s. In time, houses were built on each end of the three blocks. Moretti’s house began with the purchase of one of these 60’ x 300’ lots, the only lot without an existing house.

Alexandria by Geometrium DSGN

The client wanted the apartment slightly bring back the idea of a yacht, but without the “gay and lifebuoys.” It was important to choose materials which are available in stores or which you should not wait long, and make the project on time because the customer need to change house (is better like this in english) as soon as possible .

Planning of the apartment is very successful, we almost did not change it, just removed the wall separating the kitchen area from the living room, replaced by a sliding partition the entire length of the opening in the cloakroom and moved the opening in the master’s bathroom and WC.

Kitchener Central Library in Canada by LGA Architectural Partners

 
November 2nd, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: LGA Architectural Partners 

Kitchener is one of Canada’s fastest-growing communities, catalyzed by its universities and high-tech industry. Built in 1962, the city’s Main Branch Public Library was not only showing the effects of everyday wear and tear, it had reached an age which its major systems and components needed replacement. The library was designed at a time when energy costs were low and awareness of greenhouse gas emissions did not exist. The librarians tasked LGA Architectural Partners to preserve and expand the original structure while making it sustainable, accessible and elegantly robust—a must for a building that serves 107,000 cardholders. They also asked that the building’s design support the transforming library mandate from “reading and researching” to “meeting, making and active learning”.

The Shadow Spaces in Delhi, India by RENESA ARCHITECTURE DESIGN INTERIORS

Death

Death is unknown and it is final. The rituals of death and the spaces they are conducted in, have a deep significance to the living as well as the dead. For it is through these rituals and these spaces that the rare intersection of life and death takes place, where the living are forced to encounter and contemplate the mortality and fragility of life while simultaneously putting them in touch with the sublime of the absolute. These spaces and rituals are thus, simultaneously for the living and dead, public yet intimately private and personal.
