Parissy in Paris, France by Malka Architecture

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Article source: Malka Architecture

PARIS + ISSY = PARISSY

As infrastructures inhabit and even dominate today’s cities, it is time to accept and give them value. While composed of a poetic vocabulary of sinuous curves and evoking the picturesque, infrastructures have been dedicated to the automobile. Why not offer the richness of this language to pedestrians? Why not organize an open dialectic between vehicles and pedestrians?

The sum of abandoned roads, a non-place with a degraded identity, the site is a territory in mutation, with formidable potential owing to its constituent elements; but it requires transformation in order to construct a strong identity.

Engel Residence in Scottsdale, Arizona by 180 Degrees

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Article source: 180 Degrees

Seeking a desert haven, the Engel’s relocated to Scottsdale several years ago from the East Coast. After purchasing a residence built in the late 80’s, an extensive renovation and addition was in order. As the house doubles as the Engel’s office and design studio, the addition includes a gallery and art studio that wraps around a large existing mesquite tree. The tree provides shading for the large expanses of glazing incorporated into the design.

House 20 in Melbourne, Australia by Jolson Architecture

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Article source: Jolson Architecture

House 20 presents a series of blades cantilevering over a bronze wall; pushing and pulling. A grassy knoll rises out of the earth below, being drawn up towards the jostling blades, and partially veiling the building’s elevation and under croft from the street’s vantage point. Below this point of arrival and shelter the offset rhythm and warmth of the bronze wall reveals itself.

TEMPORARY JOINT VENTURE

RAFAEL DE LA-HOZ ARQUITECTOS – ACCIONA INGENIERIA

“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.
