NIIT University Dining Hall Extension project is a seemingly modest 7000sq ft expansion of the existing campus dining facility caching to around 370 students. However, the buildings pivotal location in the master plan, as well as, the act of negotiating the shift in the landform, offered an opportunity to create a multilayered insertion. Set in the hot, arid outpost of Neemrana district, the project also set out to achieve a contemporary yet sustainable expression and one that reinforces a sense of community.

Casa Los Diamantes in Guatemala City by Lavagnino Arquitectos

 
September 9th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Lavagnino Arquitectos

The design process for Casa Los Diamantes can be interpreted as a response to its context, the site proposed a certain orientation and form in order to gain more space and enjoy the forest view. It was our interest to combine the aesthetic lines and details of the colonial style with a contemporary space distribution. The house is organized from circular and double height foyer, communicating both stories and providing natural lighting and ventilation. To emphasize this space as the buildings core, the floor was accentuated with a floral pattern and integrated to the interior garden that provides light to the second story. We used white in all the surfaces to maintain the purity of the shapes, emphasizing details with granite and wood (walnut). As a result, the house responds to its formal predisposition without compromising the interior space and creating a dialogue between the architecture and its surroundings.

Single Family House Correnteza 21 in Lisbon, Portugal by Humberto Conde, Arq.

Article source: Humberto Conde, Arq. 

This intervention seeks to maintain only the two main existing facades of the building, at North and East, given the high degree of deterioration of the overall volume. Although the existing building is not a remarkable architectural example and with construction quality, contributes to the cohesion of the urban image of the set to which it belongs, so the maintenance of facades allow the continuity of the dialogue between the building and the context in which it operates.
