Day-in-the-life: Living in an apartment with moving parts

Day-in-the-life: Living in an apartment with moving parts | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

The resident of a compact apartment in Madrid demonstrates how she can rearrange walls and pull furniture out of the ceiling in a movie by photographer and filmmaker Miguel de Guzmán. 

Designed by Spanish studio Elii Architects, the Didomestic apartment occupies the loft of an old building, so it was designed to make optimal use of space by creating flexible rooms that can be adapted for different activities.

The architects also added several fun elements to tailor the space to the resident's lifestyle; a hammock, playground swing and disco ball all fold down from the ceiling, while a folding surface serves as a cocktail bar or ironing board.

Would not this idea work for offices as well?

A Jungle Gym for City Sidewalks

A knotty lattice of colorful play-tubes is an intriguing use of a public space.


They say the city is an urban jungle. But an urban jungle gym? A\V Studio‘s new design for a spunky tubular playground at the foot of Morphosis’ Cooper Union New Academic Building proposes just that. "CMYPlay" is a knotty lattice of colorful play-tubes embedded in the ground floor of the Morphosis building, with crawl spaces wrapped around slanting columns and each other in a dense social thicket "befitting of Manhattan." The fanciful design is an appealing gesture and an intriguing use of what is virtually empty space.


An entry to the 3Dimensional Front,"CMYPlay" creates an interactive space outside the Milavec Hakimi Gallery at 41 Cooper Square. A\V Studio’s proposal "thickens" the facade by rehabilitating the underskirt area as an active social space within the local city fabric.

Burrowing visitors will (quite literally) run into strangers and colleagues alike, while the tops of the tubes can be street furniture. The clash of color and use of plastic are a pointed contrast to the details and surfaces of the Morphosis building. Also, the tubes could be recycled and sent to various playgrounds and schools to be re-used...

Cemetery complex by Andrea Dragoni contains plazas and artworks

Cemetery complex by Andrea Dragoni contains plazas and artworks | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Architect Andrea Dragoni has extended a cemetery in an Italian town by adding monumental stone walls with public plazas and artworks slotted in between.

Four equally sized courtyards are positioned at intervals between the walls. Italian artists Sauro Cardinali and Nicola Renzi created large site-specific artworks to occupy each one, plus large square skylights were added to frame views up to the sky.

These spaces were inspired by James Turrell's Skyspaces and are designed to be enjoyable public areas, independently from the cemetery, offering an opportunity to pause and reflect. These are cubic "squares of silence" having open ceilings that evoke windows open to the sky...
