Puerta Umbría High Speed Train Station in Huelva, Spain by Rafael de La-Hoz Arquitectos – Acciona Ingeniería

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

Article source: Rafael de La-Hoz Arquitectos – Acciona Ingeniería



“Possibly the project could be understood like a big horizontal altarpiece which lights up, protects and informs” – Rafael de La-Hoz.

We propose a Station that pretends to be a real Terminus Station. Consequently it is not a place just to pass through, but a place where the passengers change their rate of movement and where the city of Huelva introduces itself to the traveller as well as the place where the city sees him off.

Spring in Pantone 375C, Mas Rodó winery in Barcelona, Spain by Carles Sala from SALA FERUSIC Architects

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

Article source: Carles Sala from SALA FERUSIC Architects, Barcelona

The Mas Rodó winery consists of a refurbishment and transformation of an agricultural warehouse built in the seventies on top of an old Catalan cottage of the XVIII century, where the structure remained and the intervention focused on defining an image and conditioning the space for a contemporary wine production.

Over an original masonry skirting, the new wooden and steel façade redefines the volume of the building and takes comfort among nature and history. A system of double skin temperates the interior of the wine-producing room to optimize the control in must’s fermentation, as well as it minimizes the energy consumption; while the thickness of the old stone wall provides great humidity and temperature conditions for wine-aging. Two volumes brake the opacity of the building and relate the exterior and the interior, that is, the vineyard and the wine: the window of the tasting room in the south, over the fields, and the porche in the west, for the entrance for grape harvest. Covered in corten steel, both inject the interior with brightness and landscape through a spring-like Pantone 375C colour.

House in Kashiba, Japan by Naoko Horibe

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

Article source: Naoko Horibe

The clients for this project requested a bath from which they could gaze out on a courtyard. We planted a gsymbol treeh in the courtyard and designed the bathroom to look out over it. The courtyard brings light and breezes into the bathroom and kitchen/living/dining room while maintaining privacy for those inside. The exterior is a black box with square windows on the southern side. The windows provide an accent to the facade while also gently linking the exterior and interior of the house.
