Monterrey 55 is a restoration and redevelopment project located in one of the most upcoming, upbeat, re–developing districts in Mexico City: La Colonia Roma. In the 19th century, Monterrey Av. used to be a tree decorated boulevard with majestic residences where the intellectual elite used to live. Unfortunately, due to the new urbanization practices of the late ’70s, Monterrey Avenue’s life changed drastically putting these old houses in jeopardy. This is where this project comes in.

The Forge Offices and Exhibition Space / Emrys Architects

August 14, 2019 Daniel Tapia 0

The Forge by Emrys Architects is a new headquarters and exhibition space for Craft Central, a charity promoting craftsmanship and providing affordable studio space for crafts professionals in London’s Isle of Dogs. The project has been conceived as a bold contemporary intervention within the historic Grade II listed former Millwall Ironworks – originally built in the mid-19th century at the zenith of the area’s shipbuilding activity. The project sees design and making reintroduced to the Isle of Dogs district, an area historically associated with the traditional industry currently dominated and characterized by larger, more commercially-focused firms.

Redfern Warehouse / Ian Moore Architects

August 13, 2019 Daniel Tapia 0

This adaptive reuse of a former warehouse has maintained the exterior almost untouched, with only a few new windows inserted into existing openings. This soft-touch has been extended to the interior, where original brick walls have been exposed and the large timber roof trusses highlighted as the starting point for the conversion to a family home. The brief called for a 4 bedroom home, with self-contained guest accommodation, a home office, to be used as an equine genetics laboratory and a large garage space to store a collection of classic sports cars.

King George House / Robeson Architects

August 11, 2019 Andreas Luco 0

This Grade-A State heritage listed workers cottage on the corner of George and King Streets, East Fremantle, provided an exciting base to create a modern family home.  The concept was to respect and highlight the existing cottage by distancing the bulk of the extension to the ROW, linking the two with an internal courtyard.  With a mixed-use zoning, the home is designed with a self-contained office and bedroom which can be leased in future should the owner decide to do so.  The highly polished introduced finishes of “Nero Marquina” marble, white oxide concrete flooring and glossed black timber lend a dramatic contrast to the raw and matte finishes of the cottage. An intentional contrast that references the original materials with an opposing finish.  The owners intend to use the nearby parks and cafes as extensions of their home, hence gardens are minimal and low maintenance.
