OLVIA

OLVIA is located on a plot of special relevance for the neighborhood of Bellavista in Quito, Ecuador since it’s on the main access street and has a prominent slope that helps to enhance the position of the building in its surroundings.

To provide a correct solution and avoid the creation of walls as enclosures, the volume that was proposed opens up to the public space as it descends along the perimeter of the property. JAG Studio In this strategy, the pedestrian access was located in the highest point of the lot, and the ac... Más

Achilles

An unlikely design for 12 homes. B-too has developed a concept in Almere for affordable social housing on a plot where only high-rise buildings seemed the solution. The study shows that this way of living is a good social solution to allow elderly and young working people to live in their familiar surroundings. Image Courtesy B-too   Unexpected On a location, slated for 12 residences, where high-rise seemed the only option, we designed something unexpected. Using round shapes and internal gardens, the amount of area these homes occupy is limited, a positive aspect in this restricted space. It allows for close placement without compromising privacy. The circular design provides the flexibility to position each home at a unique... Más

CASA ACERBIS

"Typological hybridization" is the theme that characterizes this project, which on one hand, completes the historical building curtain of the street on the square, reinterpreting the traditional elements of the typical architecture of the historic center of Albino, while on the other hand, it transforms into a villa with a garden on the inner courtyard. Marcello Mariana Marcello Mariana Marcello Mariana Albino is a small town where everyone knows each other, and we have often discussed with our clients the beauty of living in the square, of going out on foot and meeting friends and being able to have a coffee at the corner bar, but also of being able to stay isolated and protected in a villa that opens onto a private interna...
