G.C. House in Ovar, Portugal by Atelier d’Architecture | Lopes da Costa

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Article source: Atelier d’Architecture | Lopes da Costa

The arrival at the house is characterised by two exposed concrete walls which surround the building, both hiding and sheltering it. Access is established via a ramp covered by a canopy which extends from the house until the gate, set against an iron pillar. The house is essentially closed to the north and east, opening totally to the south and west in the direction of the sun, benefiting from a privileged relationship with the garden, patios and swimming pool.

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Article source: FORMA Design, Inc.

When the client hired FORMA for the addition of a private V.I.P. dining room for Paolo’s Restaurant in Reston, the mandate was to the point – ”I want a sexy room”. The challenge was wrapping a catering kitchen, bar, access to the existing kitchen and seating a maximum number of guests around the new space and making it all work.

Tree-Trunk Garden House in Hilversum, The Netherlands by Piet Hein Eek

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Article source: Piet Hein Eek

It sometimes happens that you are asked to produce something you have actually wanted to do for some time. A customer called and asked if we could build a log shack in his field, one that would be large enough to sit and write inside. I loved the idea from the start. Oddly enough, we’ve recently received quite a few questions about the log shack we produced years ago.

Plot 40 House in São Paulo, Brazil by Tacoa Arquitetos

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Article source: Tacoa Arquitetos

The São Roque residence was designed based on two constraints: it should take full advantage of the southern view of the lot with an average slope of twenty percent, and be a single-floor dwelling. As a site for the house and the immediate yard, a thirty by thirty meter area was leveled to a height of three meters below the highest point of the lot, based on a calculation of equal amounts of excavation and landfill, using retaining walls reinforced with geo-grids.
