Firehouse in Palma de Mallorca, Spain by Jordi Herrero Campo Arquitecto

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Jordi Herrero Campo Arquitecto

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ENVIRONMENT

In judo, virtuosity is achieved by profiting from the power of the contrary in our benefit. The plot is located beside a highway. In this position is usual to generate some type of protective parameter which separates us from it. Here, instead of rejecting this particular situation, we collect it in our profit, as in judo.

Taliesin Mod.Fab by Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Victor Sidy

The Taliesin Mod.Fab is an example of simple, elegant, and sustainable living. The one-bedroom, 600-square-foot prototype residence relies on panelized construction to allow for speed and economy on site or in a factory. It can be connected to utilities or be \”unplugged,\” relying on low-consumption fixtures, rainwater harvesting, greywater re-use, natural ventilation, solar orientation, and photovoltaics to reduce energy and water use. The structure is dimensioned and engineered to be transportable via roadway.

Skate Park House in Shibuya, Tokyo by Level Architects

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Level Architects

The owners of this house, a young married couple, made a special request in regards to the design of their house, located in a quiet residential neighborhood in Shibuya ward. They wanted both a skateboard park and a piano rehearsal room to reflect their own individual interests.
There was no need for a car park on the site, so to take advantage of space a private entrance courtyard was designed. The sliding glass panels of the first floor open up onto this enclosed area and allows for the workshop and studio to expand outwards. The studio has a skateboard bowl imbedded into the floor with multiple angles for plenty of different interaction.

Montrose Feature in Bishopscourt, South Africa by SAOTA

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: SAOTA

High on the ridge of Bishopscourt in Cape Town, this unique site resulted from the demolition of an existing house. The site was divided by the existing driveway, which rose steeply from the end of the cul-de-sac below. The new building’s form, perched as it is in a commanding position, was perceived from the outset to be a pavilion overlooking the lawns and the forested valley below.

McGeever Building Rehabilitation Isla Vista in California by Acme Architecture

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Keith Rivera, AIA

This rehabilitation of a modest 1960’s commercial building brings new life to a neglected structure in this coastal college town adjacent to the University of California Santa Barbara. Facade improvements included new fiber cement cladding inspired by retail barcodes and energy efficient storefronts with irregularly patterned mullions. Along the sidewalk raised outdoor dining patios were created with metal enclosures that mimic the storefronts. Inside, mechanical systems were updated along with and access for the disabled. Now the open facades entice passerby while the outdoor dining activities and rhythmic patterns of the new facade enliven the downtown streetscape.
