River Safari by DP ARCHITECTS

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

Article source: DP ARCHITECTS

While a modern metropolis such as Singapore offers many amenities and conveniences, there are times when people seek respite from urban life and a chance to interact with nature. River Safari is the first and only river-themed wildlife park in Asia, hosting Southeast Asia’s largest panda exhibit and the world’s largest freshwater aquarium. It is not just a collection of wildlife exhibits, butblends the animal habitats into a natural setting – immersing guests and animals in the same landscape. It allows people to observehow animals live in the wild and to establish an open, authentic connection with the animals, yet offering the same safety benefits of a more traditional enclosure.

Saturday, September 7th, 2013

Located on the edge of the coastal escarpment south of Sydney, the site enjoys beautiful views of rolling green hills and a distant panorama to the sea. The clients brief sought a new country residence with private guest accommodation and large entertaining areas. A microclimate of heavy rains, strong winds and western sun had to be addressed, coupled with the need for the new works to sit comfortably within the established character of a complex of existing buildings.

House in Mosteiro, PORTUGAL by Arquitectos Matos

Saturday, September 7th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectos Matos

The site is located on the outskirts of Santa Maria da Feira, surrounded by a diffuse and changing landscape.

The concept of the project comes from the combined interpretation of the functional program of a single-family house with the specific premises of the clients, as from the study of the characteristics of the lot and its surroundings and morphological conditions.

The house is organized in a single floor around a central courtyard, facing South and West, protected from the street on the North side.
