iGuzzini Illuminazione España Headquarters in Barcelona, Spain by MiAS ARCHITECTS

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

Article source: Josep Miàs – MiAS ARCHITECTS

Project description: Il Cielo iGuzzini does not belong to the ground on which it sits. Like a balloon, Leonidov’s aerostat, it will attempt to escape from this world, seeking a new sky.  It will describe the conditions of the light, natural and artificial, in its interior, it will refer to its origins, recognizing a geometric order, but above all it will want to speak to us of aspirations.

Moored to the ground, it belongs to this place, and to all other places.

Outrial House in Ksiazenice, Poland by KWKPromes

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

Article source: KWK Promes arch. Robert Konieczny

A green clearing surrounded by forest was the only context for the proposed small house. Hence the idea to “carve out” a piece of the grass-covered site, move it up and treat it as the roofing to arrange all the required functions underneath. When the whole was ready, the client came up with another request, to create some space for a small recording studio and a conservatory. The latter was obtained by linking the ground floor with the grassy roof through an “incision”  in the green plane and “bending” the incised fragment down, inside the building.
