In search of lost yard

Dictionaries are the books of forgotten words. Forgetful societies leave more words day by day to these forgotten books. Megalopolises are the cruel initiators of this forgetfulness. Alireza Behpour They fade joyful words in their daily commotion. Words like Garden, House, yard,... And We – the inevitable residents of these large cities- search these words in our everyday envies. In search of lost “Yard” Is a hopeful attempt to recall these “yards” which are lost among the municipal codes, parking ramps and the graey mass of buildings. Alireza Behpour While accepting the building codes and resuming the sustainable Architecture and Urbanism principles, we try to improve the fragile situation of the e... Mehr

19 Nassim Gallery

Inspired by Mid-Century Modern design, the Sales Gallery of 19 Nassim Gallery’s showcases a holistic approach in the architecture, interior and landscape, resulting in a bespoke and boutique space that reiterates the design methodology of the main development.

In a museum, which tends to exhibit the achievements of Iranian medicine science, using this concept through another language and expression is a logical option. Everything in the museum, even the design itself, is in service of presentin... Mehr

Harts Farm

With our Harts Farm project, we delved deep into the sites history, character and surrounding buildings, and noticed the strong farming past which is commonly associated with the area. Along with a barn influence, the proximity of the large neighbouring barn lead us to design a building which took a contemporary stance on a traditional form. Although contemporary in form, the proposal takes on a sensitive approach in order to respect the historic character of the area and the Grade II Listed status of Harts Farm Building.  The materials proposed also reference back to the existing agricultural buildings. Timber slats are orientated to represent traditional barns and along with a more poetic contemporary idea that they mimic the surrou... Mehr

Casa 27

Casa 27 is situated on a spacious plot with a privileged view, it stretches away to the eat, across the intense green, slowly downward as it plunges into the Alvor estuary and its many different tides.  © Fernando Guerra / FG+SG The idea was to choose a natural, textured material for the cladding at the base. A vivid material with some volume, to blend with the surrounding landscaped garden, but also to offer greater lightness to the smooth plastered volume, which are the blank canvas and the backcloth of the house. © Fernando Guerra / FG+SG A very rich chromatic material was chosen for Casa 27, which conveys the force of the soil and ages with integrity: Santa Catarina solid bricks, made artisanally, set into ran...

Nixon House

Nixon house is a 4 bedroom property which has been cleverly designed to resemble a collection of modernised barns. To achieve this, the 3 wings of the building have been organised in an offset arrangement. The orientation of the buildings have been calculated to maximise views and solar gain. Their almost perpendicular configuration breaks up the massing and makes the property appear smaller. In addition this creates partially enclosed courtyard spaces at both the front and rear of the property. Traditional and natural materials such as flint and timber have been proposed to clad the exterior facades, which respectfully integrates the building into the natural environment. Solar shading has been added to prevent over heating and direct s... Mehr

Berufliche Schulen Rheingau

Sanierungsstau. An einer Schule, wo Flüssiges das Thema ist. Selbst das Bauen wird hier Schule machen! Wir durften sehen, was wir vielerorts sehen: veraltete Schulgebäude, ein Sanierungsstau, wie ihn nicht nur die Beruflichen Schulen im Rheingau zu spüren bekamen. Und: Platzmangel, dazu Interessen von Drittnutzern. Caption Restrukturierung, Abbruch, Neubau und endlich eine eigene SporthalleWas wir geschaffen haben: einen Gebäudekomplex aus insgesamt 5 Bauteilen. Komplex waren hier auch die Raum- und Nutzungsanforderungen, die wir in entsprechende Räumlichkeiten übertragen haben. Da gibt es Labore, Ausbildungsküchen, Werkstätten, Aufenthaltsräume, eine Aula, die Verwaltung, zudem durch einen... Mehr

Plaza San Pedro renovation

 Plaza San Pedro, in Villaverde del Río, is located outside the southern edge of the historic center and is crossed by one of the pedestrian arteries that articulate the urban fabric, Avenida de Santa Teresa. It joins two important areas: the historic center and the San Sebastián neighbourhood, the first major expansion of Villaverde del Río during the 20th century. This site offers unbeatable potential as a meeting point for citizens. Manolo Espaliú The previous configuration of the square, its architectural barriers and the existing building, made it difficult to use, leaving it underused, residual and, ultimately, lifeless. Due to the mutations of the urban plot, the municipal food market, a buildin... Mehr

KL House

In the middle of bustling Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur House is a place of retreat from the city. The landscape, architecture and interiors keep the environment, culture and climate of the site well into consideration throughout the design process. Each component of the design is broken down to volume, line and plane, maintaining inspiration from classical architecture and design.     The Kuala Lumpur House is a sequence of both interior and exterior spaces, informed by light, material and the clarity of structure. The façade of the residence is nothing other than structured and aligned. The rigidness of the architecture is contrasted with the materials and the proportions that clad building and wrap around the landscape. T... Mehr

mini break (show)room

From a brutal environment to a multi-functional oasis Inside a plastic processing plant, a space once intended only to accommodate industrial materials was redefined to be flexible and multi-functional: a comfortable area where workers can rest during the busy workday and a dedicated showroom for clients and visitors. Francesca Perani The project provides a reinterpretation of the main floor of a mezzanine located in an 800 sqm plastic processing factory and identified by an industrial structure undergoing rigid steel frames. A minuscule 19 sqm environment is able to disconnect users from the intense noise of machinery and the cold technical lighting of the factory and reconnect with themself through a warmer dedicated space.
