“Los Álamos de Fuentecisneros” Block of 59 houses in Madrid, Spain by Otto Medem Arquitectura S.L.

Article source: Otto Medem Arquitectura S.L.

As the architect, from the begining of the project, I set out the following main goals:

Make the most of the characteristics of the terrain and enhance them by choosing the perfect orientation.

Design a set of housing complex that escapes from the everyday conventionalism of collective housing, and that is able to transmit and generate feelings. I want people to be overcome with emotion as soon as they enter the complex and feel the  beauty and harmony that each home provides, without sacrificing functionality.

Departamento Parque Reforma in Mexico City by Lopez Duplan Arquitectos

For some housing developments, showroom apartments must be done and the main challenge is the creation of a residential environment with all the necessary details to appeal to anyone. It is almost a dream comes true, a space that has to be design without a client, but it is exactly the opposite, it is a space that will be visited by many clients and the goal is to catch everybody’s eye and most specially to make them feel: “I want to live here”.

Open spaces are the main feature of this project located in Diana Reforma building to encourage communication and team work. In their previous location the areas were divided in too many spaces resulting in the lost of collaboration and synergies.

This architectural project was an interesting challenge because it was developed in two levels with narrow plants combined with large structural elements.

RF III APARTMENT in Lisboa, Portugal by Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

 
February 19th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Transformation of a 4 bedroom apartment into a 2 bedroom apartment, increasing this way its social areas .

The apartment was essentially developed along its length, structuring itself around a long corridor. However, thanks to two existing courtyards in the building it benefited from the entry of natural light in its inner part. The house was quite compartmentalized, and the rooms, with tiny areas, were mainly oriented to those courtyards. On the rear façade there used to be a very large and disqualified marquise devoted to storage and cleaning areas. It had only one complete bathroom.

Koban in Kumamoto, Japan by Klein Dytham architecture

Article source: Klein Dytham architecture 

Klein Dytham architecture’s Koban forms part of the celebrated Kumamoto Artpolis Program. The program was established in the late 1980s by Morihiro Hosokawa, then Governor of Kumamoto Prefecture but later Japan’s Prime Minister, to increase the quality of public architecture in the region. Arata Isosaki was appointed the program’s commissioner, and he matched architects with projects for new public buildings, either by direct appointment or by arranging design competitions. The program provided the fairly remote region with world-class architecture, including masterworks by such giants of the Japanese scene as Tadao Ando, Toyo Ito, Kazuyo Sejima, and Kazuo Shinohara.
