Casa Pau & Rocío. NUA arquitectures

16 January, 2018 - 01:10

Pau y Rocío son una pareja de jóvenes que, recién cumplidos los 30, se embarcan en la aventura de construirse su propia casa. 
Esta es una pequeña casa pensada para ellos, dimensionada y contenida, en continua transformación y pensada a largo plazo. La escasez de recursos provoca la permanente inconclusión de la obra, que se irá completando con el tiempo… este carácter de indeterminación exige un proyecto de código abierto, receptivo al cambio. Hoy cumple con las exigencias de la pareja, pero ¿y mañana?

Luci d'artista by Migliore+Servetto Architects | Installations

16 January, 2018 - 01:00

The installation designed by Migliore+Servetto Architects for the grattacielo Intesa Sanpaolo in Turin to mark the occasion of “Luci d’artista” is a dynamic work in which light and reflections expand, turning it into a pulsating organism. The work was switched on for the first time on 20 November and is articulated as two elements shaped on the basis of the “alpha” symbol. The repetition of this age-old character, which is charged with many positive elements and refers back to the origin of everything, generates a spiral movement shifting from the interior to the exterior of the skyscraper. Inside the greenhouse, the heart of the grattacielo, a wave of colours that are very sensitive to changes in the light invades the space, reaching heights of up to 16 m. Thanks to an innovative technology, 100 light scales act like frames in a stop motion to create an iridescent vortex, which is brought to life and made to shimmer by the brightness emanated by the object itself, in dialogue wi… continue

Burrito Loco by Formafatal | Restaurant interiors

16 January, 2018 - 01:00

Burrito Loco is a fast food network focused on Mexican cuisine, which has a long tradition in Prague. The investor has requested studio Formafatal to design interior for this fast food chain, which would be characteristic for all new establishments. The assignment was to transfer the theme of Mexican cuisine to the design of the interior and to apply these elements to a variety of spaces that investors will gradually rent. <b>The concept of the interior (colors and symbols):</b> Mexico is full of colors. A distinctive feature is variety and glamour. We have kept the same materials and elements in the design of the individual branches but we have chosen different color combinations for each of them. The color palette of the cladding of the corrugated sheet metal, the paintings, the ceramic tiles and also on the chairs is changing. We have intentionally replaced the characteristic Mexican tiles by monochrome tiles and we have brought the touch of Mexico through some symbols typica… continue

Liquid pavilion by depa architects | Museums

16 January, 2018 - 01:00

The pavilion uses both the Museum building and the Serralves Park as its raw material, each one in a different scale. Firstly, the pavilion’s design establishes an indirect relationship with the Museum building. The pavilion’s design is a polygon extracted from the Museum’s layout, corresponding to one of its characteristic spaces — the bow window — whose classic hexagonal matrix is repeated and emerges at various times throughout the Park, both in the pavements and the landscape features. The concave polygonal configuration of this layout provides the perfect base for a projection space. Secondly, the extracted polygon, once implanted in the Park and with its original context altered, including the transformation of its shape and materiality, becomes something new and detaches itself from its original source. In this second stage, the pavilion approaches the Park, establishing an affinity with its textures and finding its own materiality. It is implanted on top of the lake, wh… continue

15 January, 2018 - 20:00
[ By SA Rogers in Architecture & Houses & Residential. ]

Shouldn’t the settings of temporary artist residencies be just as creative as the art produced there? These structures include communal houses, remote huts, mobile studios, inhabitable billboards, rooftop apartments and entire inns full of creatives from various disciplines, providing an inspirational setting, lots of daylight and an optimal place to work. In effect, they’re like collaborations between the architects who designed them and the artists who dwell there for a brief period of time.
