Casa Portobello in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil by Tripper Arquitetura

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Article source: Tripper Arquitetura 

The project starts from the interlocution between a topography that, concomitantly, shapes and is shaped by architecture. Conceived by the architect Marcelo Moura, from the Rio de Janeiro office Tripper Arquitetura, the residence is composed of a succession of overlapping plans, each one starting from the encounter with the ground to launch itself in cantilever, a fact that ends up establishing a double condition: The house is contiguous to the land, providing a perception of single-storey house on all floors, while the floors become slabs in suspension, that is, terraces in height. Through them, the architectural proposition approaches the tradition of the great Brazilian colonial house – the house surrounded by the generous porch. These solariums and balconies are the intermediation between the intimate spaces of the house and the exuberant natural landscape that surrounds it.

The LRF Apartment in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by Paula Martins Arquitetura, Interiores e Detalhamento

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

Article source: Paula Martins Arquitetura, Interiores e Detalhamento

This old four bedroom apartment has been completely remodelled according to the wishes of a family with two kids who enjoy entertaining friends in an informal atmosphere. To accomplish this family had one wall in the kitchen area demolished, and to make it easier to maintain covered most of the others in wallpaper. Wooden pieces of furniture in the living room provide an air of cosiness to the property, and the coffee table was specially made out of a unique wooden tree trunk, bringing some rusticity to the room. The wallpaper used in the kitchen, in a citric green stripe pattern, adds a nice contrast to the neutral colours in the other rooms. A mirror was placed on one of the walls in order to create the illusion of a bigger kitchen. Glass sliding doors add a sense of privacy when necessary.

The BWW Apartment in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by Paula Martins Arquitetura

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

Article source: Paula Martins Arquitetura

Located in a very nice area in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, this 260 square meter apartment has a complete view of the Guanabara’s Bay. It was purchased by a young couple and fully remodelled according to their wishes and desires. The interior was conceived to create a pleasant atmosphere, in accordance to the owners’ style. The new finishes and pieces of furniture are mostly white and their elegant and contemporary look adorn the room. The BWW apartment is a project that is considerate of the couple’s gatherings during the weekends. It would be perfect for anyone looking to create new dishes and to watch movies with family and friends. In order to make room for those activities, one of the bedrooms was demolished so that the living room could be enlarged. Since the owners also needed a spacious kitchen, it was removed one of its walls to make room for a black quartz table which plays a central role in the room.

Article source: Estudio Guto Requena

The Dancing Pavilion is Interactive Architecture created for the Olympic Park 2016.

Scattered sensors inside of the dance floor capture the beat of the music and the movement of people dancing, which activates the motors of the mirrors on the façade of the building. The result is a kinetic architecture that hypnotizes people, and transforms the space into the most exciting dance club of the 2016 Olympics.
