AD Round Up: Mixed Use Part VII

All projects from December 2010 for our seventh selection of previously featured mixed use buildings. Check them all after the break.

Contemporaine / Perkins + Will Contemporaine is a 28-unit condominium building located on a corner lot in the River North area of urban Chicago.

Vallecas 48 / Auriens Arquitectura Vallecas 48 was the winner of a contest organized by the EMVS of Madrid. It contains 41 residential units, 41 commercial and storage space, and 42 parking spaces. The study decided to group homes in a single building with an L-shaped plan. The result is two bodies that are joined, one flies over the other and the road below, while the other volume falls behind forming what the architects called a “game of volumes.” (read more…)
