Text description provided by the architects. The 80m2 loft should fit perfectly with the way of life of the client who is young and single. Another issue to be addressed was the fact that the property was rented. Considering these facts, we decided to design most of the furniture in the apartment, so that they could be reused in different ways elsewhere.

A-Hole Design: Subreddit Highlights Intentionally Frustrating Products & Ads

8 hours 59 min ago
[ By SA Rogers in Design & Products & Packaging. ]

There’s design that’s just plain crappy, and then there’s design that’s maliciously terrible because the creator just wanted you to suffer. They’re related, yet distinct, which explains the existence of two separate subreddits collecting all the worst design the internet has to offer, r/crappydesign and its highly specific offshoot, r/assholedesign.

Whether we’re talking about user experience, packaging or entire buildings, poor design is a whole lot more frustrating when we realize someone’s trying to trick us, shame us, cheat us or just delight in being a giant a-hole for reason.

Vil·la Urània. SUMO Arquitectes

11 hours 48 min ago

Fotografías: Aitor Estévez
Vil·la Urània es una pequeña residencia de finales del siglo XIX que fue hogar del reconocido astrónomo Josep Comas y Solà. La villa es uno de los últimos ejemplos urbanísticos que persisten de lo que fuera en su día la ciudad jardín del Farró, en el distrito de Sarrià-Sant Gervasi en Barcelona. La re-densificación del barrio dejó el edificio y el pequeño jardín circundante encajonado entre dos grandes medianeras.
El nuevo complejo de equipamientos asume el reto de dar una nueva vida al edificio y a los jardines existentes incorporándolo a un edificio de nueva construcción.
Un centro cívico, un casal infantil, una sala polivalente y una sala de exposiciones forman el programa del nuevo complejo de equipamientos.
La villa rehabilitada se convierte en un lugar de encuentro, un espacio diáfano polivalente equipado para realizar todo tipo de actividades propias de un equipamiento de este tipo.

Villa Cortaillod by Keller | Manufacturer references

11 hours 59 min ago

Spatial openness Located on the Lac de Neuchâtel, this single-family home was designed by the architectural office Andrea Pelati with a building volume of 1090 m³ and a usable area of 208 m². Nestled under the garden of the neighbouring building, the interior of the new building shows a view of an impressive landscape. Near-natural far-sightedness The new house lies halfway between the village and the vineyard of Cortaillod. It appears to grow out of the ground below the garden of a building from the 1950s. The new building is barely noticeable from the road. The design blends in with the surroundings, but marks its presence with the stairs set into the roof and arouses the observer's curiosity. Flowing room sequence In the interior a flowing room sequence takes one from the entrance hall through the house. The passageway to the bedrooms is inconspicuous, while the stairs down to the living room appear spacious and inviting. From the living area the view opens out onto the vin… continue

Building Blocks of Innovation: 11 Cutting Edge Materials Set to Shape the Future

18 April, 2018 - 19:00
[ By SA Rogers in Conceptual & Futuristic & Technology. ]

Architecture has looked much the same since early humans first began constructing their own shelter, but that could change soon with the introduction of new materials and technologies producing almost alien-like forms. Woven carbon fiber, ultra-strong but amazingly thin concrete, transparent wood and 3D-printed sandstone are among the innovations that could break free of the traditional constraints and result in a new era of lightweight, durable, versatile forms in all sorts of organic and mathematical shapes.
