RETREAT PAVILION in Santiago, Penafiel by FRANCISCO PORTUGAL E GOMES

 
June 24th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: FRANCISCO PORTUGAL E GOMES

The project anticipates the rearrangement of an already existent construction annexed to a small house, in a refuge pavilion with 50 m².

The implanting of the new building follows the limits of this existent construction in the west side, recycling small stone. The opposite side is rebuilt, realigned and, reusing the granite header from the best walls, is created an uncovered yard that serves as entrance and, at the same time, decompresses the proximity with the neighbouring house. This reconstructed element melts itself with the new construction interlinking the granite wall with horizontal slate plates of 3 cm in thickness placed in small stone cubes making a continuous grate that draws the building.

RESTAURANT + TEA HOUSE in Oporto, Portugal by FRANCISCO PORTUGAL E GOMES

 
June 24th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: FRANCISCO PORTUGAL E GOMES

This work is located in the granite peak of Antas in the south side facing the valley of Campanhã. The toponymy evokes that in this place megalithic funerary monuments (Dolmens) will have existed, but this is one of the areas of Oporto city that more suffered with the successive transformations of the last decades, as, to point out, the construction of the new Dragon Stadium, inserted in the Detail Plan of Antas (1999-2003) and the construction of the road junction of Via de Cintura Interna / Antas, which occurred in the 80s of the XX century. This last process resulted in the demolition of the northern half of the Vasques de Mesquita Street and in the southern half only a part where the work is located resisted.

Simple brief: I want to live in a small house on a small plot at a reasonable price. Budget was fixed at € 75.000. I am still remembering last summer on the countryside. Could we recycle the typology, morphology, even decor of Slovakian rural architecture?

Roll House in Milyang-si, Gyeongsangnam-do, Korea by Moon Hoon

 
June 24th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Moon Hoon

A young married couple who were both teachers approached me with an amazing plot of land. It was long, like a sword, adjoined with a long street to its side. The proportion was dramatic and therefore something that added to the appeal of the project, and the shape of the site itself breathed a vital energy into the building.

CINEMAS ALESIA in Paris, France by MANUELLE GAUTRAND ARCHITECTURE

 
June 21st, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: MANUELLE GAUTRAND ARCHITECTURE

In 2011, the Gaumont-Pathé group decided to restructure the existing building to improve the quality of its cinemas, as well as to properly address the needs and greeting of customers. The general objective of the group is to progressively renew the image of its movie theaters, often very urban and installed on magnificent sites but suffering from a sometimes dated image.

The goal is to make them into beautiful cultural spaces, lively in daytime as much as nighttime and flexible enough so that they can host a diversified program, mixing Film with other cultural events: the image of the Movie Theater in the City must be totally renewed.
