A 1970s house in Mexico City was converted by EZEQUIELFARCA architecture & design into a contemporary family home with a bold look. The Barrancas House was planned using expectation, surprise and attention to details as the three main coordinates: “We took advantage of the location of the house that has views towards the woods so we installed floor to ceiling windows so that natural elements from the exterior such as natural light, views to the woods become part of the interior without compromising the comfort and intimacy of the inhabitants”, explained the project developers.

Integrating the exterior with the interior was achieved by using materials such as marble, stone, wood, together with neutral tones. The tour of the residence is filled with unexpected treats: “Discovering the house through the hallways, leads to multi-functional unpredictable spaces achieved through movable screen walls , hidden doors, bay windows that open entirely, furniture designed especially for each space, automatic lightening system, for each need of the inhabitants.” Sustainable elements of the residence include green roof, green walls, an automatized water saving system, as well as a solar energy system.

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
