LONDON – ENFIELD


A residential building in North London.
Todays special.- The building has been freshly constructed.

No google and no other searching engine can find this building in any directory bacause the pictures have been taken in our architectural office and not published so far.

You can see the building is very, very simple but you can not deny it has that something that x factor that
defines good architecture.

The entrance fronton resambles th Grand arch in Paris, but here you can see it in a much softer  incarnation, and the architect did not commit a suiside.

The architect who I know personally, wanted to introduce to the building as little ornament as possible .
To sum up,  it  was a quick project, not much effort put to it but the effect is really tremendous.
Well done, Mr.N 😉

DUBLIN – RANELAGH STREET- CLOSER TOWARDS THE CITY


Another building worth of our attention, located only few hundred meeters away from the preliminary school , on the same street.


Flat aluminium roofs, nice and smooth finish of a render and a very cubistic shapes.
The building consists of many parts that prefectly play together giving the very contemporary character.
Obviously the same material scheme as for the other building has been used: timber, smooth sand cement render, and a natural stone.
Big openings, colouristic contrast between the building parts, effect of “looking at the opening through another opening”. Very interesting manipulation with blocks of building , makes the whole design fresh and unusualy beautyfull and sometimes I wished I had designed this building.That about sums up my relation to the building.

 

DUBLIN, RANELAGH STREET- PRELIMINARY SCHOOL


Dublin – Very interesting place to live in, especially in the end of the last decade .


I was one of those lucky ones to live there for a few years and experience the unbelievable possibilities of having big money invested in  building process.


Very often buildings were constructed of very good quality, and well finished materials, also you could notice an interesting trend in architecture and design generally to use materials of natural origin, more often then it was happening in previous years.


The presented building is a preliminary school located  in Dublin, on Ranelagh Street .

 

It is kept in a small , very human scale and one can feel a freshness of ideas and a friendly enviroment very the priority to the designer.

Thanks to the use of natural materials, timber framed windows and doors, timber cladding, natural stone, smothed and polished concrete panels, lead flashings and roof coverings make the building looking contemporary and give it a very noble character.
 
 

The attention to details and thoughtfull and fresh use of composition , calls for a special appreciation.
