Bosques 05 in Mexico City, Mexico by Ezequiel Farca

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Article source: Ezequiel Farca

Apartment Bosques 05 is a single-level apartment located within a high-end district of Mexico City. Ezequiel Farca reconfigured the space and transformed its impact on the family with an entirely new palette of colors, materials, and lighting.

A central hallway welcomes visitors, while diverting attention away from private bedroom areas. Farca installed wood paneling on several walls to strategically warm the space, and to introduce the richness of natural material to the inner core of the home. An automatic lighting system allows the family to preset a variety of lighting schemes with the push of a button.

L House in Hirafu in Niseko, Japan by Florian Busch Architects

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Article source: Florian Busch Architects

The L House in Hirafu is a private holiday residence in Niseko, Hokkaido. Following the escarpment that defined the topography in prehistoric times, the site is a steep slope with un-compromised views of Mount Yotei. Despite being located not far from the House on the Slopes, the ground conditions here vary so drastically that excavating the mountain would lead to massive reinforced retaining walls and hence a prohibitive increase in cost. In response to such constraints and in order to exploit the site’s view, we proposed a house in the trees.

Pedras Salgadas Eco-Resort in Portugal by RA Architectural & Design Studio

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Article source: RA Architectural & Design Studio

The new Eco-resort of Parque de Pedras Salgadas, Portugal, consists of a set of seven small houses in perfect harmony with the surrounding outstanding nature.

Designed in a modular prefabrication system but flexible to adapt to the specific places within the park, these houses result in several different combinations of the same three modules (entrance/bathing – living – sleeping) creating different morphologies and different dialogues with the surrounding nature, wisely occupying the empty spaces between the trunksof large trees and, at the same time, allowing each home to be unique, special and worth visiting.
