The White Elephant (Elefante Blanco in Spanish) was an abandoned building, originally intended in 1923 to be the biggest hospital in Latin America. The structure, unfinished since the cease of works in 1955 and in ruins without the possibility of recovery and functionalization, was located in the Commune 8 inside Ciudad Oculta in Villa Lugano, Buenos Aires, near the intersection of Avenues Eva Perón and Piedra Buena. After several studies, it was established to demolish the existing structure and to develop a project for the New Headquarters of the Ministry of Human Development and Habitat alongside new recreational public spaces.

A tiny farm cottage is ment to be come into an occasional appartment through a complete rehabilitation. In this small intervention crystallizes an attitude that seeks to identify rural morphologies and join them at the rate of development of this environment. Urban planning instruments can often endanger these morphologies, leading to the destruction of sometimes secular constructions by increasing building rights.

This House Never Ends / Steffen Welsch Architects

April 12, 2021 Valeria Silva 0

Nestled in a heritage protected inner-city suburb of Melbourne this is a home with a sense of discovery. Designing a family home can be a complex venture: a house should be functional, environmentally sensitive, affordable and a good fit into the neighbourhood. A home should provide shelter with a sense of space that is your own; it should be light filled and warm. This determines siting, layout, room proportions and the articulation of the building fabric through openings, materials and details.

Sabará Apartment / Felipe Rodrigues Arquitetura

April 12, 2021 Andreas Luco 0

Following an analysis of the existing unit and client demands, the project’s primary focus was on the property’s main social areas. By observing the apartment’s original plant, we found a pressing need to unify the living room and dining room, which were partially compartmentalized. The kitchen’s layout was also questionable, presenting evident issues in proportion and circulation. As in a game of logic, with few movements of the dividing lines, the resulting space turned out to be very interesting. The premises of the project were therefore defined.
