Casa dos Pátios. Pedro Ferreira

9 hours 17 minutes ago


Fotografía: João Morgado
Situado en Rua Santo Ildefonso (calle), Porto, el proyecto Casa dos Pátios es una rehabilitación de un edificio del siglo XVIII.
A lo largo de su historia, el edificio, que había sido utilizado para uso comercial y viviendas, sirivó después como escuela, luego fue abandonado y en la actualidad se encontraba en estado de pre-ruina.
El diseño creó un conjunto de apartamentos y tiendas, manteniendo toda la estructura y el concepto espacial de la preexistencia. Aunque desde el exterior solo parece tener dos pisos, el edificio original presenta una estructura de cuatro pisos habitables en su interior.

Good Lock: 15 Kool Key Cutting Shops & Signs

14 hours 27 minutes ago
[ By Steve in Architecture & Cities & Urbanism. ]

Key cutting shops may be circling the retail store drain but their doom isn’t quite locked in, as these 15 classic key cutting shops and signs illustrate.

Key cutters occupy a cluttered end of the retail spectrum… no one has, is or will make a living on key cutting alone. As such, key cutting gets lumped in with other “orphan” services like shoe repair. It’s hardly a battle of equals, however, and for some reason shop owners feel the need to state and re-state their ability to cut keys… are their aged customers hard of hearing AND seeing?

Text description provided by the architects. There are forty-one oaks within this Portola Valley lot. They lie within the boundaries, dotting the rolling hills and shading the ground with their canopy. The clients, a couple retired from corporate careers and now immersed in their passion for photography, wanted the home to feel like a continuation of the landscape; they hired Field Architecture, a firm with a long history of designing homes that act in conversation with their site.

Text description provided by the architects. The LEED Gold–certified Sechelt Water Resource Centre (SWRC) rethinks traditional municipal wastewater treatment by creating a transparent space in the residential heart of Sechelt that engages the public in meaningful ways. Instead of sequestering this essential service behind a locked chain-link fence, the facility reveals mechanical and biological systems that clean wastewater, encouraging the public to witness their role in the hydrological cycle. The Centre captures resources (biosolids, heat, and water) for industry, parks, and agriculture.

How to Calculate Spiral Staircase Dimensions and Designs

23 hours 27 minutes ago
© Matheus Pereira © Matheus Pereira

Spiral staircases save valuable square meters because they occupy a much smaller area than a conventional staircase. With daring shapes and diverse configurations, they can also be iconic objects in projects. However, the design of these staircases requires careful attention so that you can prevent an uncomfortable or dangerous outcome. Although BIM software simplifies this process, it's always important to understand the restrictions and the underlying concepts.

Spiral staircases can adopt different structural configurations. The most common ones have a circular format with a central mast from which the steps are fixed.

For this design, three main factors must be taken into account:

  • How high must the staircase rise vertically? (Distance between floors)
  • What is its angle of rotation?
  • What is its diameter?
