Thong House in Saigon, Vietnam by NISHIZAWAARCHITECTS

Sunday, May 6th, 2018

Article source: NISHIZAWAARCHITECTS

“The perceived quality of life in buildings should come from the geometry and how that geometry connects to human beings”. It was the initial thought we had when being offered to design a row house in Phu My Hung, a new urban development area in the Southern Saigon. This project could be considered as another attempt to find a contemporary living manner in row house typology. The brief was to get rid of the way of living we used to have in common town house, where the staircase in the center along with the corridor to access spaces covered by four walls which isolate people inside his own world. The client is a nuclear family, consisted of the parents and two kids with the explicit wish to have a home fulfilled with natural elements while being able to improve the spiritual connection between each family member.

SKI home in Madesimo, Italy by ES arch enricoscaramelliniarchitetto

Sunday, May 6th, 2018

Article source: ES arch enricoscaramelliniarchitetto 

The development of the architectural project has determined the construction of a building that combines a unitary image with an articulated arrangement, determined by external factors (distances, constraints). The trend of the perimeter walls adapts to external constraints, the smallness of the land does not allow to define geometrically determined trends. Starting from the given perimeter, through a series of minor corrections, orientation corrections and consolidation of rotations, a plant has been determined that is repeated on the first floor, except for small differences. The articulated plant does not have the possibility to determine the course of the ridge on geometric bases. It is in terms of volume that there have been various trends in the ridge and the pitches, in order to create an elegantly articulated volume, without poignant elements.

The Place – Petit Palace Hotels in Madrid, Spain by Teresa Sapey Estudio de Arquitectura

Sunday, May 6th, 2018

Article source: Teresa Sapey Estudio de Arquitectura 

The Petit Palace Santa Barbara is located in an old palace in Alonso Martinez plaza, making it its own right in a surprising and captivating space in the heart of Madrid.

Given the characteristics of the building and its large courtyard, Teresa Sapey Studio projected a magical place to accompany the romantic spirit of the building. A wild garden but cozy at the same time, in which anyone would retreat from the city’s chaos. It was thought a complete renovati on to transform an old and dowdy wasted space in a reference point among the terraces of the capital. The first step was to color the walls, which would brought light and spaciousness to the box in which the courtyard is located. Many large plants and trees of different leaf were used to convert this space into a vegetable urban oasis. And finally, three different zones were created to provide various customer services; an outdoor dining area, a cocktail bar and the wider one, a rest area where you relax in front of the large fireplace. The furniture plays a very important role into the decoration, national furniture firms are combined with prestigious Italian brands to achieve the best contemporary design that keeps functionality and comfort in the same way. The touches that recall the design of Teresa Sapey are clearly recognizable in its entirety. From the walls painted in aquamarine green, a hydraulic tile designed ad hoc for the space or a light garland are touches that will make this terrace turn into one of the places to be in Madrid.

Sunday, May 6th, 2018

Article source: OLARQ OSVALDO LUPPI ARCHITECTS 

The existing house undergoes a significant transformation in order to clarify its layout.

The proposal presents a straight-lined design that enhances the idea of an abstract shape. The façade overlooking the street is a flat and opaque surface, while the one towards the sea is a double loggia.

From the entrance on the first floor one can reach the private zone and descend to the public areas on the ground floor.
