RAAS Jodhpur in India – The Lotus Praxis Initiative

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Article source: Studio Lotus

RAAS – Hand crafting a story for today

Set in the heart of the walled city of Jodhpur, Rajasthan, RAAS is a 1.5-acre property uniquely located at the base of the Mehrangarh Fort.

The brief was to create a luxury boutique hotel with 39 rooms in the context of the Old city quarter of Jodhpur. This has been translated into a project where there is a dialogue between the old and the new. Luxury was about being authentic both in terms materials and workmanship, and in providing visitors a tactile and sensual experience within the historical context of the old city of Jodhpur without aping the old.

EPR House by Luis Aldrete Arquitectos

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Article source: Luis Aldrete Arquitectos

The project responds to the morphology and topography of the field taking advantage the length of itself to place the house footprint and achieve more garden area and more cubic meters. So the exercise was to work the superposition of two volumes. The first is a steel basement that gives the impression of solidity and rootedness to the earth at the same time opens to the terrace and garden. The second is a box that has a finishing made from land and pigments to get a terracotta tone that breaks up to achieve the patios that seem to make incisions giving views and privacy inside.

International Social Housing Competition (VIVA) 1st Prize in Ceuta, Spain by IND [Inter National Design]

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Article source: IND [Inter National Design] 

The international competition on Vanguard Social Housing (VIVA) organized by the Spanish Ministry of Housing placed a high emphasis on the relationship of the new architecture with the urban environment under the slogan ‘We Make City’. Addressed to disadvantaged citizens and -as expected in most social housing projects- it had a tight budget. We decided to confront the tightness of the budget by taking advantage of the richness of the site complexity.
