DPS Apartments

The building’s design is an exploration based on the traditional housing complexes and typologies of del Valle neighborhood in Mexico City; an urban layout where the street blocks feature pan coupé corners that create broad intersections. As a response to this specific situation, the scheme and building incorporate a diagonal sequence of spaces that transition from the public realm of the street towards the intimacy of the interior and private terraces and gardens. Caption Inside the scheme, the apartments are organized in such a way that there is no “back apartment”. The latter is possible through the combination of single and duplex typologies that have a relation towards the interior patios and gardens but... En savoir plus

PUERTO BUILDING

Located on one of Valencia’s main avenues, connecting the city centre with the sea, the building occupies an awaiting plot of land with ideal conditions. A perfect rectangle, with its long sides facing 2 streets although with a very limited surface area of 200sqm.  Alejandro Gomez The program which wasn’t totally defined at the beginning, comes from the desire to respond to the plot’s ideal conditions and possibilities.  Alejandro Gomez The architectural intention that determined the layout tries to optimise the use of land and maximize the entry of light. Locating the access core in the middle divides the plot in two and minimises the common areas. Each half is divided again in two obtaining 4 units,... En savoir plus

Rauti-Huus, Zurich

Together with the neighbouring building at Albisriederstrasse 226, the commercial building designed by Rudolf Kuhn in 1947 forms an architectural ensemble whose consistent urban appearance forms a piece of Zurich’s industrial architecture. The subtle façade modulations, the rhythmic design of the stair towers and the large and bright entrance areas are typical of the late 1940s. Subsequent additions and extensions were removed and the four-storey concrete frame building was extended with a lightweight timber construction. Now appearing as a six-storey building, this testament to the post-war period is used today as a laboratory and office building on the first three floors. Starting on the third floor, the structure has been co... En savoir plus

Gudrunstraße

Fifty business apartments and six offices were constructed in a new building on an empty lot in Vienna. The first phase focused on supporting work for the necessary rededication. In further phases optimal light conditions were achieved by orienting all of the apartments facing South-East. Noise pollution was reduced by the same measure, since the orientation towards a more quiet side street acted as natural sound abatement. The building's facade is comprised of stacked traditional Viennese Schrebergardens (small, intmate garden communities), expressing a strong character in terms of urban development in a neighborhood characterized by predominantly commercial use.  En savoir plus

ALBERT APARTMENTS

The building is located in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. The building rising with 2-storey masses lying horizontally and the glass-covered floors between them, created a contrast with the vertical boxes that came out of the console opposite to the horizontal. The dynamic relationship formed by horizontal and vertical masses created a sense of movement in different directions in the structure. 5 vertical boxes in the building gave the building an architectural identity by making a console with a height of 3 floors. The commercial floors on the ground floor and 1st floor have defined the entrance area to the building with the shell extending to the boundary of the plot and have been decomposed in size from the upper apartment volumes.
