House in Monticelli Brusati in Brescia, Italy by Studio Artec

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

We like thinking about this house as a transposition on our territory of a Californian Case Study House of the 1950s and 60s. The structure is of course adapted to the local climate and landscape, but the spirit that generated this design is that of simplicity and of being self-confident with the place as it had been for those so famous houses.

Bahamas Villa by Marco Acerbis Studio

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

The villa is located at the centre of the garden allowing the building to naturally grow from the earth and to stand out like a beautiful tropical flower. The ground floor slab is suspended a foot off the ground allowing natural ventilation and cooling. The concrete mass of the slabs together with the swimming pool water are natural cooling elements that will absorb heat during the day providing a fresh and relaxing environment. The scheme provides for a very open yet protected floor arrangement allowing for a confortable inside outside living environment where boundaries are reduced to the minimum and enjoyment of an ever changing villa is enhanced to the maximum with balance and elegance.

House A in Osaka, Japan by Takeshi Hamada Architect

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

The location is Abeno-ward Osaka, JAPAN. Though it is a superb location just 10 minutes from Tennoji Station, it is in the downtown streets filled with traditional emotion, there are traditional  tenement houses, old houses and shops, just 1 block from the main street. I planned the house in the narrow vacant land for 56-square-meters in this area. The house is light and open, and the residents can enjoy their hobbies.

Piraeus Tower in Athens, Greece by Marco Acerbis Studio

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

2010 International Competition the ‘New Face of Pireus Tower’, The second highest tower in Athens

Simple ideas have often been the driving force for the evolution of human kind, like the idea of the sails that allowed Greek ships to cruise all over the Mediterranean sea. Today, in an era of complex energy problems we also need simple solutions to difficult problems. To provide a  new look to the tower we have to think more about the environment and the energy consumption that we would  spend to climatize a building.

A fragmented orchard in Kirchberg, Luxemburg by OKRA

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

Description of the project:

OKRA won the competition to design a public space between office buildings in the Gruenewald area of the Luxemburg city borough of Kirchberg. OKRA thought of how to give the fragmented neighbourhood a consistent identity of its own. As the area lacked a clear programme, OKRA chose to come up with their personal programme for an ‘urban orchard’. By planting apple and pear trees, OKRA has attempted to create cohesion between the scattered spaces and buildings. Thus the theme of the ‘edible city’ gives this public space its coherence. The urban orchard consists of many little orchards, each with its own atmosphere – but everywhere passers-by are invited to pick the fruit.
