Article source: STUDIO GUILHERME TORRES

Since the architects has been contacted to rebuild a classic-style residence in a traditional neighborhood of Sao Paulo, it was decided for a simple renovation of finishings to attend the desires of a young new resident. As soon as works began, the need for a complex intervention including repairs in the whole roofs, it took the Architects to consider structural reinforcements, frames exchanges and construction of new elements – a process that lasted almost two years.

Aqwa Corporate in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by Foster + Partners

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

Article source: Foster + Partners

The Aqwa Corporate Project is a Class A commercial office development along the waterfront in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, strategically located at the heart of the Porto Maravilha urban regeneration district. Situated within a landfill zone dating back to the 20th Century, the project is part of an extensive land reclamation in the historic port area of the city. Throughout its history, the area has been integral to the city’s development, and is where choro and samba music was born. The site is also close to the port region of Rio, which has been isolated for many years by the raised ‘Perimetral’ highway. As part of the masterplan, a portion of this route has been demolished, reintegrating the port – which still receives thousands of visitors every year – with the rest of the area. It will also restore parks, squares and other public spaces throughout the district, while rationalising the traffic flow and introducing new retail, commercial and civic spaces to create a vibrant district in the heart of Rio.

Pasqua House in São Paulo, Brazil by studio mk27

Wednesday, July 4th, 2018

Article source: studio mk27

Pasqua House is a single-family country house.

A leafy boulevard of flamboyant trees (also known as royal poincianas) that seasonally dye one side of the lot with intense red was of great importance to define the architectural design approach. A 27-meter-long hollow brick wall, made of precast concrete panels painted white, delimits this side of the plot and poetically integrates the interior and the exterior. The concrete hollow brick has become the trademark of this project. At the same time it provides privacy without blocking off the landscape, it brings different emotions throughout the day with the different shapes of light and shadows it creates on the floor as the sun changes direction, and the passing of time is clearly marked by the light that enters with different intensities. The hollow brick wall also creates a subtle relationship between the lot and the street, allowing the users to enjoy the external spaces either from the living room or the internal patio.

White House in São Paulo, Brazil by studio mk27

Wednesday, June 20th, 2018

Article source: Studio mk27 

Comfort and building maintenance throughout the years are two fundamental aspects for houses built in tropical areas next to the sea, where the high temperatures and the effect of the sea air determine the extreme local conditions. The White House project, located on a beautiful Brazilian beach, on the northern coast of São Paulo, made these questions as determinant to organize the plan and for the selection of materials to be used.

CR House in São José dos Campos, Brazil by Obra Arquitetos

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

Article source: Obra Arquitetos

The main request of the couple was to make a house with roof and great offer of external area. We proposed a large sloping roof in metal structure and L-shaped installation, where the yard turned into a large lawn fully integrated with the internal space. The large frames allow the total opening of the spaces on the ground floor by diluting the boundaries between the interior and exterior. Still on the ground floor there is a service and kitchen core that does not have access to the central lawn.
