Hesiodo in Polanco, Mexico by Hierve

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

Article source: Hierve

The building stands on a small street in a residential neighborhood in Mexico City. Although it is located in a residential area, the street is very close to a busy commercial thoroughfare. This allows the building to be immersed in the peace and quiet of its street, and at the same time confront the urban alienation that pervades the commercial zone.

Article source: Maxwan

As part of a park competition in Kiev – Ukraine, Maxwan resolved a missing gap in the primary pedestrian path. The solution goes beyond merely creating a bridge. It strives to create a signature place, within the park. It avoids any of the assumed formal or structural gestures. By doing so, it creates an almost non-bridge.

  • Location: Kiev, Ukraine
  • Program: Bridge design

Lefevre Beach House Between Sand and Water

Conceived as the place where the arid Peruvian desert meets the Pacific Ocean, this beach house located at Punta Misterio 117 km. south of Lima, is an intervention where the integration of architecture and landscape was an important concern. Sand garden roofs act as the extension of the desert; lap and recreation pools connect the ocean with the house, while a glass box hangs from the structure symbolizing architecture between sand and water.
