ALV&NAT House in Madrid, Spain by ALT arquitectura

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Article source: ALT arquitectura

We are used to perform spectacular photographic reports retouched in photoshop to show a perfection, which is neither true, nor is attractive in my opinion. We focus on an architecture more intuitive and emotional than intellectual and rational, where raw sincerity of its construction. We try to generate emotions, derived from the configuration of space and form, use of materials, their textures, their relationship with nature and light.

Campeche Apartments in Mexico City, Mexico by Ambrosi I Etchegaray

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Article source: Ambrosi I Etchegaray

The site 15m wide by 25m deep is located in Campeche Street, inside Colonia Condesa. The project is comprised of four housing units overlapping each other, two of them with the public areas to the street and the other two to the rear of the property. The houses try to break the sense of depth in the site through courtyards and terraces in the front, middle and back of the property, to which all the spaces of the houses live; in this way each of them has an immediate extension to an outer space.

W Barcelona Hotel in Barcelona, Spain by Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Article source: Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura

The sea is always an enormous challenge for an architect. The Mediterranean Sea is the most unusual site. The infrastructure works started with the opening of the new mouth that effectively divides theBarcelonaharbour into two areas: small and big ships. The urban mission of the project is to provide an extension at the south point to the city waterfront. The project includes a public plaza opening to the sea, a marina and a landmark hotel, a wonderful icon for a cosmopolitan city.

Article source: TaAG Arquitectura

The client requested a residence in a private section of Zapopan for a family of four members. After the analysis of the program made, and as the family has teenager children, we conclude that the house had to have various levels of simultaneous interaction. With independent spaces that could eventually participate in the same event by joining each other to greater capacity for visitors.

Cabeço do Resto House in Madeira, Portugal by MSB Arquitectos

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Article source: MSB Arquitectos

The ground seems inappropriate for the building. With a very steep slope, which extends from south to north, the first impact is the extreme difficulty for the implementation of a house. the project provides an initial response to this setback, refusing to shape the land with retaining walls, and taking advantage of the slope to \”drop\” the program of the house and dividing the volume in two separate platforms, connected with a vertical element that binds these two moments.

Model Home Gallery in Seoul, South Korea by NADAAA

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Article source: NADAAA

In South Korea, the study, design, and sales of housing have developed into a discipline serving an ascendant middle class with amenities and technologies that are significantly sophisticated. The “model home gallery,” a nexus for consumerist desires and corporate strategy, not only contains sales offices with model homes, but also a variety of public amenities for the adjacent community. Art galleries, restaurants, cafés, auditorim, and other public open spaces foster favorable relationships with area residents, thus expanding the customer base and fueling the housing economy.
