M2 House in Bozen (BZ), Italy by monovolume architecture+design

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Article source: monovolume architecture+design

The project M2 at Bozen-Moritzing is a Klimahouse. A which hosts two accommodations on separate floors. Because of his punctuated facade in the north and the east it seems closed to the access road. The plastered basement serves as pedestal for the smaller upper floor, which is covered by cladding sheets. To the garden – towards the south and the west – the house opens because of a generous glass façade.

Ami_bar in Milano, Bicocca, Italy by Gianluca Milesi Architecture

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Article source: Gianluca Milesi Architecture

There was the need for the place, a bar and restaurant location, to be, at the same time, a flexible space and an easily recognizable site reflecting a precise, strong and unique image. These inputs generated the concept of the project: one “consistent and closed in itself” structure at the same time articulated in order to satisfy the different and flexible functions.

El Caserón in Zaragoza, Spain by G///bang architectural

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Article source: G///bang architectural 

The family. – A couple and a seven year old boy plus a dog. Old but with a great retirement. They christened the house “El Caserón”. They lived renting and they decided to pawn their savings in buying a lot that included an insultingly tasteless house, in my opinion. I decided not to demolish the house, with the family’s permission. We tried to avoid mediocrity looking for the best in the worst.

Article source: G///bang architectural 

The task involved the creation of a cultural space for three types of activities: The leisure center for children up to 14 years, the center for cultural activities, and the multipurpose space. The urban space where the cultural center was to be located was a small lot in Plaza Miguel Aso, which according to the urban plan of the city, only allowed construction on the ground floor, with height up to the roof slab level, not exceeding the height of the ground floors of the surrounding buildings.

Montfullà House in Montfullà, Girona, Spain by Hidalgo Hartmann

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Article source: Hidalgo Hartmann

We find ourselves on a horizontal ground, a corner plot raised on two large slopes like a vantage point from which to enjoy superb views towards the agricultural plain that stretches at his feet until reaching Salt and the city of Girona. It is thus an exceptional setting that claims for an intervention that recognizes the attributes of the site and put them in value. We placed a silent, hermetic volume that emerges from the site and adopts the original profile of the hill, like a fortress that visually dominate the landscape. The volume encloses itself from the outside and is protected from the mediocre constructions that surround it by using the broken geometry of two thick walls.

Nakagawa Office Extension in Nara city, Japan by Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Article source: Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects

This project is for an addition to the former premises of a company that we had built a new building for 2 years ago. With almost no changes to the original, the addition is structurally separated, with the washroom, kitchen, entrance and stairs and main circulation of the building now provided by the addition. In order to preserve the amount of parking and stay within the building footprint limitation, the building has a shallow plan of 2x20m allowing for the conversion to be completed within the allowable budget and time frame. This is architecture of the ‘facade’.
