EE Jardim Maria Helena III in Sao Paulo, Brazil by +K ARCHITECTS / Keila Costa

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Article source: +K ARCHITECTS / Keila Costa

Jardim Maria Helena III is a Sao Paulo State School, located in the rural area of Barueri, a town in the Greater Sao Paulo metropolitan region. It provides Elementary, Middle and High education to approximately 525 students. The 2,41 acre lot where the 3.391 sqm school is located is a flat terrain surrounded by hills covered by the native Atlantic Forest. Taking these two basic features into consideration – the surrounding nature and the flatness of the lot – the project consists of two parallel two-storey buildings erected longitudinally across the flat terrain, with a large empty central space between them that opens on both sides to the surrounding hilly landscape.

Pegan Petkovšek National Gymnastics Centre in Ljubljana, Slovenia by Enota

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Article source: Enota

The National Gymnastics Centre Pegan Petkovšek is part of the comprehensive renovation of Svoboda Sports Park in Ljubljana. It is the first of the three sports halls that are to be built on the western edge of a belt between an access street on one side and a large greened park layout with sports grounds on the other. The building of the gymnastics centre is placed on the northernmost part of this belt. The northern and western edge of the building reference the building line regulated by the spatial acts, which also stipulate the greatest built ratio and the height of the building. The strict urbanistic regulations necessitate a very compact design that allows for little deviation.

House in Melides, Grândola, Portugal by Pedro Reis Arquitecto

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Article source: Pedro Reis

The house in Melides, on the southern Alentejo Coast, by Pedro Reis, represents the desire for a holiday house as a getaway from the bustle of a big city. The client made the unusual decision to have an architectural competition between three distinct ateliers, allowing a choice from a wider range of possible solutions. This winning proposal presents a reading of the “drama” of the natural countryside, building it on top of a steep hill relatively protected by the surrounding “rugged topography”.

Topographic House in Barcelona, Spain by MiAS ARCHITECTS

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Article source: MiAS ARCHITECTS

The house lays along its longitudinal axis: the view on the landscape, towards the sea, is —again— one of the most important values for the project, which unfolds itself and gets mixed with topography. The building is horizontal, elongated, sinuous, catching the landscape, moving delicately in order to obtain the best views, without shutting spaces.

Rio Olympic Port in Brazil by JDS Architects

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Article source: JDS Architects

When looking at the creation of any new neighbourhood we need to identify qualities and clarify what its identity and attractiveness will be both for the city and for its inhabitants. For Porto Olympico we want to bring a new life to the area by creating a development which is turned inside out. Rather than making a simple series of towers with all the life on the interior, we have made a project which is defined by a thousand parks, balconies, and plateau’s of life and vitality.

Sign System For Industrial Parks in Madrid, Spain by Brut Deluxe Architecture + Design

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Article source: Brut Deluxe Architecture + Design

The sign system for industrial parks totem de/dos has been conceived in order to guide visitors who are not familiar with the site visually to their destiny in clear and evident way. Therefore, the system employs two types of posts. The objective of the design of the first is to give a recognizable and distinctive image to all industrial parks of the city, to visualize and identify them from long distance and any angle of approximation and mark the main accesses. Once located the industrial district, the posts facilitate more detailed graphic information – a map of the area and business listings of all companies. This information is repeated on the smaller sized secondary posts located strategically in the interior of each industrial park.
