Montemor House / Brasil Arquitetura

September 17, 2021 Susanna Moreira 0

Three rammed earth walls made of different colored earths define, organize and structure this house. With different heights they define the occupation of the lot in all directions from a small triangular central courtyard resulting from the intersection of these three walls; organize the spaces of daily life in their basic functions (kitchen and services, living and living and bedrooms); and conceptually and physically structure the coverage of the three volumes resulting from their deployment on the ground.

The YPY 1731 building houses a collective housing complex of eleven units located in the San Martin district. The work is located in a typical block of purely residential use in the Province of Buenos Aires. The building takes the neighborhood scale in its front and quiet part, generating a large west-facing patio, solving various common brick planes from screens, to generate gradients that respond to the different uses, private, semi-public and public of the program.

Building C3 / Peter Besley

September 17, 2021 Andreas Luco 0

I designed this building as one of a cluster of 16 buildings by various architects at the Design District, in North Greenwich. The building provides naturally lit and vented floor space for the creative industries, and includes a double-height bar/restaurant at ground floor which spills out to the main square. The ribbed white elevations are undulating, playing with the light and form. Internally the curves allow people to be part of an open plan space but also nestle into a “bay”, complete with views into the narrow lanes and courtyards of the District.
