Fuli Garment Factory Renovation / genarchitects

July 24, 2021 Yu Xin Li 0

Located on Fengcheng road in Yangpu district of Shanghai, the former Fuli Garment Factory, which was founded in 1985, is still running when we first came to the site. The workers were busy as usual, occasionally reminding us not to take photos of them. It was not the first time that the factory was renovated. Like every old building, changes took place as owners and users shift, gradually blurring the simplicity of the original space. After we cleaned up the ceilings, the temporary canopies, odds, and ends, the bones of the old building slowly appeared.

NAN Residence / FOF Studio

July 23, 2021 Alexandria Bramley 0

This is an interior refurbishment of a ground floor flat in Bermondsey, London— a grade II-listed, former paper mill, and tannery. The warehouse consists of several original features such as timber beams, brick walls, cast-iron columns, and cast-iron pivoting windows. A young couple had lived in the flat for a year and decided it was time to renovate their home. Their main criteria were simple— to make their home a brighter space, and to have a larger kitchen with a central island.

House in Amares / Luís Peixoto

July 12, 2021 Valeria Silva 0

Casa em Amares results from the rehabilitation and expansion of an ancient country house, dating back to the 18th century, located in a low-density residential area interspersed with agricultural and forested land, close to Serra do Gerês. The project’s main challenges resulted from the need to adapt the existing construction to contemporary housing standards and demands, without compromising the formal and temporal coherence of the ensemble. The proposal is thus divided into two volumes, of which autonomous expressions result from their specific temporal circumstances. This duality also reflects itself at a functional level, through distinct notions of domestic space that coexistent and articulated in the same house.
