Sundsvall Theater in Sundsvall, Sweden by François Blanciak Architect

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Article source: François Blanciak Architect

In order to emphasize the public nature of the art center, the project presents itself as a series of cuts of an original spherical volume that are tilted to allow pedestrians to cross freely through the public space upon which the building sits. In addition to distinguishing the various programmatic elements of the project, this translation movement follows and connects to an existing public building axis.

House 101 in Barcelona, Spain by H Arquitectes

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Article source: H Arquitectes

Even though the regulations allowed to build ground floor and two floors, the first great decision was to compact the program in two only floors. Thus, the zone shares the ground floor by day with the parking lot that incorporates into the functional program of the house. The second decision was to place the main courtyard in the corner in such a way that the relationship between the living room and the kitchen is produced throw it.. The program of rooms concentrates in the upper floor where one turns up another courtyard that, together with the skylights, allows distributing the pieces without the need for opening up directly in street. The house becomes opaque in the limits, but it expands in its inside.

Article source: BAK Arquitectos

Site

Mar Azul is a seaside resort 400 km south of Buenos Aires, with an extensive beach of dunes and lush virgin forest of conifers. The land is part of the forest has the distinction of being very narrow and long and having a surface slope almost 5 meters before the baseline. From that point the dune has a sharp depression of low vegetation cover (acacia) but no pines. So looking from the lot to that area, conifers of the terrain is clear cut in this very special evening when the sun is going down and horizontally through the trees. This uniqueness makes this undoubtedly the most privileged view.

Article source: Titus Bernhard Architekten

The idea behind House 11 x 11 was to design an apparently compact house of homogenous materials, with a low external surface but as large a usable area as possible, a house that serves a family as an inhabitable sculpture and shows its exterior as an image of the inner organization.
