Osler House in Brasília, Brazil by studio mk27

 
March 18th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: studio mk27 

The site of the Osler House lies at the edge of Brasilia’s pilot plan, at the tip of one of Paranoá Lake estuaries.   The house is a poetic commentary on modern architecture, above all on Brazilian modernism, starting from a contemporary re-reading of the building materials and techniques.

Cowiche Canyon Kitchen and Ice Bar in Yakima, Washington by Graham Baba Architects

The first half of the 20th-century was a time of growth and dignity for downtown Yakima. Presidents Roosevelt and Taft visited the emerging agricultural center where the main street featured fountains, grand theaters, and stately, multi-story brick-and-masonry buildings. By mid-century, however, most of these structures had been demolished to make way for parking lots as businesses struggled to keep their downtown relevant and residents fled to the suburbs.

Cima House in Chihuahua, Mexico by Garza Iga Arquitectos

Article source: Garza Iga Arquitectos

Sustainable and smart; this house is one of opposites; breaching the gap between last century’s construction methods and next century’s technology and ideology.

Built with concrete, steel I beams, and wood; it resembles the classic architecture styles of Louis Kahn and Mies Van der Rohe but at the same time it incorporates a range of technological systems not available in their time. Water collection, treatment and reuse, and solar power technology are only some of those mentioned systems.

Three Gardens House in Al Funaitees, Kuwait by AGi architects

 
March 18th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: AGi architects 

It all started with a question:

Are you able to design an outside space that can be used 365 days a year?

For moderate climates such as the Spanish it seems quite simple, but in the case of an extreme weather like that of Kuwait it was necessary to think about new strategies. So we asked the client:

Could you live in an outer space located at different levels?

Could you classify your outdoor activities in evening and daytime actions, summer and winter events? 

These enquiries may be very difficult to answer for a Mediterranean family, but definitely not for those who are used to living in adverse weather conditions and who easily know what can -and cannot- be done during the summer outdoors.

Nonhyun Matryoshka is located in a residential area of four to five-story buildings, situated deep within Gangnam’s main street. Existing housing developments usually require closed boundaries to prevent an invasion of privacy. However, new neighbourhood living facilities desire demarcation in order to populate each domain with its own distinctive feaqtures, as these spaces are made up of many diverse programmes. As such, it has been planned to mark this duality.

Mediterranean Restaurant in Limassol, Cyprus by HappyANTS Interior Architecture and Design

Article source: HappyANTS Interior Architecture and Design

After the huge success the restaurant concept had in Nicosia and Larnaca, the time came for creating a similar restaurant in Limassol. The challenge here was to apply the same concept as in the other restaurants of the chain, in a space already used as a restaurant, covered with marble on the walls and wood everywhere else. We kept as much as possible, due to the fact that it was a low budget renovation, but refreshed and reused it, to match our concept. This project was in collaboration with interior designer Leonidas Leonidou.
