Dieguez Fridman reimagines Buenos Aires' typical "sausage houses"

Houses in the Argentinian capital traditionally have a "horizontal progression of spaces that go from the most public areas to the most intimate spaces", according to Dieguez Fridman co-founders Tristán Dieguez and Axel Fridman. These homes are often called "casas chorizo", or "sausage houses". They typically have a courtyard on one side and all other rooms set out in a narrow, sausage-like row along the property line, giving all rooms access to the patio. Dezeen. Bedrooms inside this barn conversion extension in the English countryside are defined by the peaks of a sawtooth roof, which Blee Halligan Architects added during the building's renovation.


The Five Acre Barn is home to a bed and breakfast, and is set between the Suffolk seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Thropness in the East Anglia area of England. The owners of the property previously lived in Peckham, south-east London, but sold their house to start a life in the countryside. After finding the old barn, the pair commissioned Blee Halligan Architects to transform it into a property that could become their home as well as serving as guest accommodation. "The client brief was for internal refurbishment of the existing barn, which would be converted to house a communal living space, open-plan kitchen and owner's accommodation," said the practice, which is based in London and the Caribbean island of Providenciales.

Bolling Municipal Building in Boston houses the Boston Public Schools (BPS) department and plays a central role in the reactivation of Roxbury’s Dudley square. As a testimony to the vision of the late Mayor Thomas M. Menino, the building stands proudly over Dudley Square. It was Menino who decided the City of Boston would develop the vital plot of land by consolidating 500 civil servants from the BPS into a new municipal office building for education, in conjunction with a community centre and retail space. The building’s second floor is home to the Roxbury Innovation Center, initiated by Mayor Martin J. Jérome Guéneau, Catherine Rannou, Pascal Léopold · THE STABLE · Divisare.

CLASS Cafe Buriram / Sake Architects

In the past couple of years, Buriram has seen the birth of many new architectural structures. Located on the main road that leads to the city center, Class Cafe occupies the once old and unused building and is now turning into a new destination of this northeastern city’s inhabitants. While the building’s capacity is sufficient to function a café, the architect thinks that idea of using air conditioning system with all the functional spaces may have caused the program’s ambience to be somewhat too homogenous.

Peter Zumthor's Therme Vals Through the Lens of Fernando Guerra.

Peter Zumthor's Therme Vals Through the Lens of Fernando Guerra

Built between 1993 and 1996, the building is part of the hotel complex in Vals. Constructed over a thermal spring, it serves the hotel guests, the local community and other visitors in search of the healing and relaxing properties of hot water. The design of the project arose from a restriction which prevented the construction of a building height that would damage the guests' views of the valley.

This led to one of the main design features of the building, with a facade and half of the building buried in the hill blending with the topography of the valley, and a flat green roof that combines with the sloping hill to create a continuous lawn.

This is a room for a continuous video projection, for the documentation of a monumental but fragile installation made by Christian Boltanski in the Atacama Desert. With two concentric cylinders and two tunnel-like extensions, this sculptural piece is meant to erode its own figure in order to re-enact an inner landscape. The radius of the smallest cylinder is, in fact, defined both by a fine-tuned equipment and by the precise distance of an observer immersed in the projected image.

Korean Curiosity: Is Seoul Experiencing a "Neo-Brutalist Revival"?

During his frequent travels to Seoul, Hong Kong- and Singapore-based photographer Raphael Olivier noticed a new trend taking the South Korean capital: a crop of geometric, concrete buildings of all genres. He calls the new style Neo-Brutalism, after the modernist movement that proliferated in the late 1950s to 1970s, in which raw concrete was meant to express a truth and honesty. Olivier's observation led him to capture the phenomenon in a personal photo series—a photographic treasure trove of these projects which, when taken as a whole, uncovers a cross-section of this trend in the city's architecture. The "Brutalist Revival" has been well documented over the past several years, but the phrase usually refers to a positive shift in our perception of the style, rather than a return to the actual construction of Brutalist buildings.

Olivier has his own theories about the growing prominence of Neo-Brutalism in Seoul. Gallery of See The Engineering Behind This Floating, Award-Winning Stone Helical Stair - 9. Wooden Living-Roof Built With Japanese Joinery Techniques Uses Zero Screws. Wooden Living-Roof Built With Japanese Joinery Techniques Uses Zero Screws A multidisciplinary design study by J.Roc Design, based in Boston, has developed a proposal using wood to restore value to an underused rooftop at the southern end of the city. In order to accommodate a series of different activities, which required a wide variety of furniture, and therefore a considerable reduction of space, a subtle treatment was made to the flat surface of the roof creating distinct spaces that could be used for sitting, resting and entertaining.

Description from the architects. Boston-based J.Roc Design has inserted a sculpted, modular roof deck into a historic Boston building using no screws or fasteners.

Krøyers Plads is a five-story housing project with a significant location in the centre of the Copenhagen harbour area designed by Danish architects Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects and COBE.

The award-winning and Nordic Eco-labelled project is now finished. The project is based on a hyper-democratic and contextual approach where folded roofs and architectural heaviness create a dialogue between old and new, and a modern, empathetic interpretation of the architectural uniqueness of the old Copenhagen warehouses.

Jim Olson’s reverence for nature and admiration of the site’s beauty is expressed in the design of his cabin located on Puget Sound and nestled amidst the towering fir trees of an ancient forest. What began as a 200-square- foot bunkhouse built in 1959 has morphed through subsequent remodels (in 1981, 1997, 2003 and 2014) into a modest weekend house.
