Villa Dolni Dobrouc in Dolni Dobrouc, Czech Republic by Alexandr Skalicky Architect designed with ArchiCAD

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

The basic idea of the design of the Villa is based on the layout of its internal rooms and on the work with the interior as a kind of “residential countryside”. The internal rooms and the immediate surroundings of the Villa form a “spatial zone” which runs through the Villa and its surroundings as a continuous line. The Villa is partly sung in the slope of a hill to form a large and flat entrance area in front of the house.  This area is the first “external” room of the Villa. It is here where the visual contact with the Villa actually begins. The space that begins in this place runs, with various modifications, through the whole house. Behind the entrance area, the “zone” enters the internal space of the Villa. The zone consists of two inside floors. From the entrance hall which is on the lower level, the “interconnected space” leads to the residential floor in the upper level via an open staircase and ends before the dining and living rooms.

Alemanys 5 in Girona, Spain by Anna Noguera Architect

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

The reform has been approached as a search for the most intrinsic characteristics of the actual construction, while the building is freed of additions, surface elements and recent reforms, interpreting the old elements not so much through an historical optic as through their architectural qualities.
