Many masters of Russian cinema, from the introduction of  Lumière Brothers to Russia, then Vertov, Eisenstien, Tarkovsky and  Sokurov to name a few, have provided us with unimaginable vision of how our world can be seen from a different perspective.  Through their evolving art of cinema, not only do its visuals stimulate us but furthermore, our subconscious creates a deeper imagination to the contents we literally experience.  Cinema world allows us to explore the unknown territory that cannot be experienced in the reality.

Inside-out house in Mt. Washington, Los Angeles by Ramiro Diaz-Granados

Friday, June 10th, 2011

Article source: Ramiro Diaz-Granados

This project is for a new single family residence located in the Mt. Washington hills of Los Angeles. The property is a small (3,600 s.f.) descending lot with an approximately 2:1 slope facing slightly southwest and within the upper portion of a ravine. Diagonally to the west is a view of downtown and directly across lie a scattered array of houses on a similar slope. The area is characterized by tight winding streets with an eclectic range of houses fronting directly on them. Most of the structures are direct manifestations of the complicated zoning laws that govern the area; maximizing height restrictions, uncovered decks that extend 5 feet beyond the envelope,  skirts that extend all the way to the ground, etc. This results in a typology that seems more appropriate for the flats of L.A. and clearly signals the end of the possibility of the case-study experiments not so long ago.

Füleky Winery in Tokaj, Hungary by Építész Stúdió

Friday, June 10th, 2011

Article source: Építész Stúdió

In the historical center of the small Tokaj village, on a plot directly adjacent to a 15th century church, our task entailed the design of a winery that is to produce quality Tokaj wines. The basic concept underlying the building’s design was to build a new winery by making use of all valuable elements of the greatly remodeled, original stone building. Thus, the existing, traditionally laid stone walls had been integrated into the new building so as to result in a house that now displays these original elements. It has turned out only upon uncovering of the small house, i.e. after removal of layers of plaster, that beautiful stone walls had been hidden there for several hundred years. As a modern, dry-laid structure, the new facades of the building as well as its roof have been made of yellow-grey stone originating from nearby Mád. The stone panels on the roof are laid in a manner so as to recall the original tile-covered house, yet with the roof planes already implying a new and progressive mass.

Kanzlei Balkenhol in Buchen, Germany by Ecker Architekten

Law and Accounting Offices – House Balkenhol
This building is protected under historic preservation laws and was renovated as a professional leasing property for law offices and an accounting firm. Built on a massive plinth, two facades are adorned with elaborate sandstone decorations in the neo-classic style. Due to decades of vacancy and neglect, the bearing capacity of the floors no longer met code and the entire building, from the basement to the roof rafters, was gutted. The outer envelope was the only remnant of the original structure to remain intact.
