Jungle House in São Paulo, Brazil by Studio mk27

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: Studio mk27

The project is located on the paulista shore in the region of the Rain Forest and the land has a mountainous topography with dense vegetation. The introduction of this house to this landscape has the objective of optimizing the connection between architecture and nature, privileging the view looking out to the ocean and the incidence of sunlight in the internal spaces.  Furthermore, the positioning of the house on the site obeyed the previously-open area in the vegetation.

House In Rua Do Paraíso, Portugal by fala atelier

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: fala atelier

A bourgeois 19th century single family house was to be divided into a series of identical studio apartments: four living spaces, some circulation areas and a private backyard. The project happens within a given system of constraints, aiming at an unexpected complexity, finding a certain interest within a very banal set of programs.

Castagnola in Lugano, Switzerland by HERZOG & DE MEURON

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: HERZOG & DE MEURON 

The well-preserved gardens of the 17th century Villa Favorita, lining the shores of Lake Lugano at the foot of Monte Bré, are of great historical significance. The 13 romanticist buildings situated in the gardens were erected between 1687 and 1932. Their historicizing style is characteristic of Ticino architecture and, in fact, generally of the villas on the lake shores of northern Italy. Originally, the Villa Favorita was a freestanding, single ensemble of buildings between Lugano and Castagnola. Today it is surrounded by modernist blocks of housing from the second half of the 20th century. This modern architecture, is also a typical Ticino style, that emerged in response to the appeal of the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland as a second home and a financial center.

Rehabilitation of Parque Hidalgo in León, Mexico by taller5 Arquitectos

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: taller5 Arquitectos

Public space is that territory of the city where multiple activities are generated so that different social groups can have a symbolic identification and thus promote the appropriation of space, since it is this dynamic that gives a true form of social integration, leaving aside the socioeconomic condition, idiosyncrasy, etc., and establishes us as equals.

The Farewells Court – Cemetery Renovation And Extension in Megliadino San Vitale, Italy by MIRCO SIMONATO ARCHITECT

Sunday, May 27th, 2018


he cemetery renovation and extension project resolves the problem of lack of intimacy during the procession: the funeral cortege used to pass through the provincial road, losing their moment of recollection due to the presence of the local traffic.

The new entrance is located on the southern side, in Via Cimitero (cemetery road), at the end of a tree-lined and calm boulevard. This arrangement makes the space fit the emotional status of the processions gathered for the final farewell.

Simplicity and ceremony. A white wall acts as a backdrop, with a canopy to protect the priest conducting the religious service.

The same space is also designed to be used for private prayers and meditation, as can be inferred by the presence of four benches shaded by four trees.

Bookshelf House in Yokohama, Japan by Shinsuke Fujii Architects

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: Shinsuke Fujii Architects 

By making the wall diagonal, a new easy-to-use bookshelf integrated with the building was born.  Because all the shelves of the bookshelf are inclined, children, women and old people can easily climb without a ladder, and books of high position can be easily taken out and put in. In addition books don’t collapse when an earthquake occurs.

Résidence à Stoneham in Canada by PARKA – Architecture & Design

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: PARKA – Architecture & Design

This residential project has been imagined with an intention to be integrated with the landscape and the site. Designed for a young and dynamic family, the project emerges both inside and outside, creating spaces for living in nature. The garden-level backyard and the large breakthroughs looking out on the surrounding forest was an inspiration to play on the perspectives and the context. The living areas overlooking the forest provides a feeling of living in the treetops. The structure enveloping the terrace adds privacy and perfectly frames the landscape.

NOON is an afterschool for children, where workshops, school counseling and a general stay are given. The project was developed based on a corporate identity, which was adapted to a pre-existing building with a limited budget because of being the first center to be executed; so the project is divided into 2 constructive stages, where the first one is summarized to strategic interventions that improve the functionality and the presence from the street, to the design of exterior and interior areas, and also to the design of furniture of selected spaces; so that together produce professionalism, security, order, creativity, fun and belonging sensations both in children, as in parents and the work team. The general objective was to achieve a space that generates real social and cognitive experiences (not virtual) in children.
