Social Housing in Palma by RipollTizon

RipollTizon designed the building for low income families in Palma de Mallorca's Pere Garau neighbourhood. It contains 18 apartments, ranging between 35 and 68 square metres, and includes a mixture of one, two and three bedroom apartments. The corner block forms a six-storey tower, but drops down to three storeys on one side to meet the height of surrounding buildings. "The result is a solid column with excavated voids where the openings are presented as scenes stacked upon each other," said architect Pablo Garcia. The building is divided into two different halves - separating apartments for rent from those for sale. The apartments have simple interiors, with white walls and tiled floors, plus each one has its own private balcony. The building replaces a former block of courtyard houses.

Nice Architects shaped the balconies in accordance with the sun's trajectory across the facade of the four-storey North Star Apartments building, which is located in Senec, a small town outside of Bratislava. The architects were tasked with creating social housing situated on a busy street that would be visually appealing but came at a low cost - €500 Euros per square metre. "The goal was to enrich this locality and create an iconic, easy to remember and original building, as an opposite to the patchy and chaotic surrounding development," said architect Tomas Zacek. 15240_10154506612170603_555502502968063951_n.

CAAN Architecten creates a stacked office building

Property developer Hectaar asked CAAN Architecten to design its new offices on a small site next to a busy crossroads, which was formerly occupied by a petrol station. According to the architects, the stacked arrangement of the three storeys is a response to the diverse architecture surrounding the site, including townhouses that abut the street and detached homes set back behind gardens. The cantilevered volumes also help to break up what could otherwise have been a rigid corner by projecting out in different directions to strengthen the building's relationship with the perpendicular roads.
