The regeneration of the Park Hill estate is a collaboration between developers Urban Splash, Sheffield City Council, Great Places Housing Group, English Heritage and the Homes and Communities Agency with architects Hawkins\Brown and Studio Egret West and landscape architects Grant Associates. The original scheme, comprising 995 flats on a 32-acre estate, dates from 1957-61 and was designed by Jack Lynn and Ivor Smith working with J. L. Womersley of Sheffield Corporation City Architectʼs Department. The building celebrates its 50th anniversary with the unveiling of the four show apartments in one of the siteʼs four blocks.

Regard authentique p3 - Immeuble villa caché - ampuqàm. Page précédente Cas d'étude 2 : L'immeuble villa de Le CorbusierConstruction commémorative d’un projet théorique.
Contexte initial : Né en 1922, ce projet théorique, jamais réalisé d’immeubles-villas est une composante importante des recherches de Le Corbusier et son cousin Pierre Jeanneret sur la superposition des logements et le jumelage des maisons verticales. Immaginé en 1922 pour le salon d’Automne, ce projet lui sert d’abord de maillon pour compléter une démonstration qui articule sa maison Citrohan. Le Corbusier et Pierre Jeanneret travaillent alors à l’élaboration d’un plan type standardisé, qui serait le résultat de différentes transformations de l’habitat en série mais aussi de la machine à habiter dans le monde de la consommation.
Valeur historique : Le projet théorique de l'immeuble villa fait preuve d'une grande innovation spatiale et architecturale. Drawings - Rue de Meaux Housing - Rpf. Models - Rue de Meaux Housing - Rpf.

Beirut Residential Building / ACCENT DESIGN GROUP. Adjacent to a central transportation artery for the city of Beirut, and situated at the nexus of two urban fabrics, this design negotiates issues of scale, unit diversity, views and zoning regulations.
Stacked glass boxes emerge from a massing, which is positioned to maximize buildable area. Cantilevering balconies and terraces take their cue from the character of the old urban fabric while creating a vertical neighborhood rich with panoramic views of the downtown, the city and the sea. Shading louvres provide relief from abundant east and west sunlight while creating zones of outdoor privacy and facilitating a green screen. Located at the edge of development and demarcation, the project blurs lines while innovating on the Beirut high-rise typology.

Zaha Hadid Unveils Community-Oriented Housing Project In Monterrey. Zaha Hadid Architects have unveiled their first project in Mexico, a residential development in Monterrey. The country’s third-largest city, Monterrey is a rapidly growing and increasingly important manufacturing and technology center. The project, named “Esfera City Center,” is located to the southwest of Monterrey in the Huajuco Canyon, where it will provide crucial homes in a rapidly expanding part of the city.
Consisting of 981 units from single-person lofts to four-bedroom apartments totaling 137,000 square meters, the design rejects the original brief from the client which called for 12 residential towers, instead opting for a series of long, low-rise blocks which surround a public park, bringing a community focus to the design.
More images and information about the Esfera City Center project after the break. The design responds to its location in the Huajuco Canyon by arranging apartments to reduce solar loads and capture the prevailing winds and cool the buildings’ interiors. NT24 / Aflo Arquitectos.

Guedes Cruz Architects — Alcabideche Social Complex. © Ricardo Oliveira Alves . Published on April 08, 2014. Portugal is not a Mediterranean country, but the fact that it has been conquered by people from the south, Romans and Arabs, has left us with a southern culture and life style, where there is a balance between privacy and life in society. The Alcabideche Social Complex is a housing complex promoted by the Fundação Social do Quadro Bancário (Social Foundation for the Banking Sector), of high quality in terms of construction and landscape, which aims to help to fill a gap in the elderly support system.
Located in the metropolitan area of Lisbon, next to what was a clandestine urban area and rural fields, with a total construction area of approximately 10.000 m2, the Social Complex of Alcabideche aims to reconstitute a Mediterranean life style in which the outdoor spaces of streets, plazas and gardens are like an extension of the house itself. The roofs of the housing units also have other functions. . © Guedes Cruz Architects .
