CASA XS in Buenos Aires, Argentina by BAK Arquitectos

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Article source: BAK Arquitectos


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.

House 11×11 in Munich, Germany by Titus Bernhard Architekten (designed using ArchiCAD)

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

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.

This house, too, lies in the vineyard with a wonderful view of the Moselle. It is in part a masonry building with a visibly screwed oak façade; in part it has a load-bearing timber and glass façade. The building encloses an internal courtyard on three sides and is oriented to the northeast, towards the Moselle. There, too, a large pool of water was positioned, which can also be used as a swimming pool. A footbridge leads across this pool to the entrance to the house.

New home for Garage in Moscow in Moscow, Russia by OMA

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Article source: OMA


Now that preservation is increasingly important in our approach to existing cities, the period between the 1960s and 1980s is, worldwide, an exception. We can imagine saving Fin de Siècle, early Modernism, but the more anonymous and impersonal architecture that emerged after World War II has few fans and almost no defenders. That is why we were very happy to work on turning the almost-ruin of Vremena Goda into the new house for Garage. We were able, with our client and her team, to explore the qualities of generosity, dimension, openness, and transparency of the Soviet wreckage and fi nd new uses and interpretations for them; it also enabled us to avoid the exaggeration of standards and scale that is becoming an aspect of contemporary art spaces. – Rem Koolhaas
