ESCARPMENT HOUSE in Albuquerque, New Mexico by Sam Sterling

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Article source: Sam Sterling

Sited above Albuquerque’s Petroglyph National Monument, the Escarpment House is a visually porous version of the classic New Mexican courtyard typology. The house’s spatial sequence is a progression through outdoor spaces – from an entry court though a glazed interior courtyard to the Sandia View Patio.

Conversion of the “Casa grande” Pavilion of Psychiatric Hospital into a Psychogeriatrical Pavilion. 2002. 1st prize (Finalized work) Constructed surface: 4.437 m².

The project is based on the idea of reclaiming the original volume of the building by eliminating the existing additions at both ends. By using the initial construction as a starting point, two new constructions have been added to the ground floor and thus solve the proposed program in the most comprehensive way possible.

EPR-House by Luis Aldrete Architects

The project responds to the morphology and topography of the field taking advantage the length of itself to place the house footprint and achieve more garden area and more cubic meters. So the exercise was to work the superposition of two volumes. The first is a steel basement that gives the impression of solidity and rootedness to the earth at the same time opens to the terrace and garden. The second is a box that has a finishing made from land and pigments to get a terracotta tone that breaks up to achieve the patios that seem to make incisions giving views and privacy inside.

Villa Frenay in Lelystad, The Netherlands by 70F Architecture

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Article source: 70F Architecture

The commission (March 2008) consisted of a detached house with outbuildings on a plot in villa park ‘de Noordzoom’ in Lelystad, at the foot of the Enkhuizen – Lelystad dike. The family wanted, like many others, light, air and space.

The house is a one-story bungalow, while the site asked for a response to “living at the water.” The latter is accomplished by making a veranda along the entire length of the building (south), at the most important rooms of the house; from bedroom, to wardrobe, to the master bathroom, to hobby room to the kitchen and finally to the dining- and around the corner the living room. Along this line, there is a transition from water to veranda, to completely glass facade, with doors behind which all mentioned areas are.

City Tower in Cheongna, Korea by Gianluca Milesi Architecture

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Article source: Gianluca Milesi Architecture

In the City Tower competition in Cheongna, Korea, was asked to design an high rise building in a city of future development. Our principal idea for this project has been to concentrate and organize an urban complex node in an unique building and a center of attraction. Our intention has been to formalize this main concept through a consistent architectural structure with a form that respects its consistency in every part, still taking different shapes in order to host the different functions of the project program.

Zac Claude Bernard in Paris, France by Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Article source: Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes

The building is part of a recently developed area in the North of Paris (19th district). The main façade – south – faces an urban boulevard – Boulevard Mac Donald. The new tram way under construction will serve the area in a few months. Next to the housing, a school group, offices and facilities have been built.

The main volume of the housing is 10 stories high and measures 45 x 32 m. A small patio lights up naturally the center. Shops situated on the ground floor and offices on the 1st floor complete the building. All apartments are double oriented and a generously outdoor space – balcony, roof, terrace or loggia – are provided for each apartment. The outdoor spaces enlarge naturally the living rooms and dining area. The loggias are about 10 m2; their dimension allows the comfortable placement of a table.
