Arc Village Studio in Lam Tin, Hong Kong by SIM-PLEX DESIGN STUDIO

Friday, July 20th, 2018

Article source: SIM-PLEX DESIGN STUDIO

Sim-Plex has transformed a 606 sq. flat in Hong Kong into combined living & working studio with a clustered of arc frame and round-corner cabinetry to form a village- like communion.

Client inspiration – As described by the client, the situation is very bad in the past. The working room is enclosed, isolated and fenced off from the living room without any sunlight. The client is an IT self-employer and he complained that the previous spacial arrangement make him lack of communication with his family members. Moreover, all the paper documents were exposed and look messy. The living room is full of debris and look untidy. ” Fluidity, openness, brightness and tidiness” as suggested by Sim-Plex to client, are the wordings which would be achieved in this project.

100 Norfolk in New York by ODA

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

Article source: ODA

Beyond an acute awareness of elements such as context and the needs of its community, ODA New York’s brand DNA is earmarked, in particular, by a special dexterity with—or even mastery of—the city’s byzantine zoning code; a kind of sixth sense for navigating the various restrictions and regulations in a way that enables ODA to consistently challenge architectural convention. That zoning facility is on full display in the brand’s latest multifamily masterstroke. Indeed, located on NYC’s lower east side, 100 Norfolk quite literally turns convention on its head.

58 Public Housing Torresolo in Vizcaya, Spain by IDOM

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

Article source: IDOM

The 58 subsidized dwellings developed by Sukia are located on the edge of a hillside in the municipality of Leioa, therefore having great visibility in the surroundings. The Masterplan defined a base that would occupy the garages level. This plinth would then support, as if it were a podium, four blocks which, also dictated by the council, would have the same materials as the façade. Two of these blocks make up the development we are dealing with.

TLI House in Tuscany, Italy by ARCHITETTURA MATASSONI

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

Article source: ARCHITETTURA MATASSONI 

To think about different spaces in which to do different activities in different moments of the day is a mechanical mental form inherited by modern industrial culture.

Architecture has to get past and to unhinge this rigid manner to conceive life spaces.

This is the main effort for the renovation of a flat, contained inside an early-seventies block of apartments, despite its small size!

House Set On The Valley Floor in California by ATELIER JØRGENSEN

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

Article source: ATELIER JØRGENSEN

Set within the vineyards and close to the center of town, the site for the house is a large plot of land dotted with full grown trees and vineyards.

The project consists of two houses connected with glass. Each house is protected from a busy road with two ‘L’ Shaped walls – one is stone and one is cedar. A number of pieces behind these walls are arranged together around courtyards and terraces. In turn giving rise to a sequence of individual gardens, each with their own individual ambience – gardens set among other limitless gardens. A system of slender spaces act like paths connecting the gardens, courtyards, and interior spaces, each embracing and respecting the landscape.

MALEO Residence in Lombok, Indonesia by Mitchel Squires & Associates Limited

Thursday, July 12th, 2018

Article source: Mitchel Squires & Associates Limited

The front and back facades on the first story are solid, providing covered exterior space while maintaining the volume’s geometric purity. A public-private transition is created at the villa entry, and continues down at ground floor level. Seen from outside, the solid-void composition can clearly be read. A long transparent façade encloses the open living space – the “void” – and two closed stone blocks at both ends mark the “solid” private spaces.
