Alcoutins House in Lisboa, Portugal by Guedes Cruz Architects

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Guedes Cruz Architects 

The site is the plane where our projects become architecture.

It is on this that we build and what we see are the apparent forms, those which appear above this plane.

In the Alcoutins House the real form is that which has as a support a plane which is 3.5 metres below ground level. It is like a lake, where the volumes float or rest on the base, where we see only the part that appears above the waterline.

S House in Lima, Peru by domenack arquitectos

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: domenack arquitectos

The house is the result of dealing with three important variables: satisfying the functional needs of the family, adapting the design to a difficult sloping topography without resorting to complicate and expensive structures, and capturing the views towards a golf course despite the fact that the plot is not adjacent to it.

U.S. Land Port of Entry in Minnesota by Snow Kreilich Architects

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Snow Kreilich Architects

Project Overview

Located along the Minnesota-Canadian border the Warroad Land Port of Entry is a 40,108-square-foot facility that supports the mission-driven demands of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the federal agency responsible for securing the nation’s borders and promoting legal trade and travel. The facility is composed of three distinctly functioning buildings united by a continuous canopy that manages a complex set of operational issues including site circulation of commercial, private, and recreational vehicles and state-of-the-art vehicle inspections. The main building serves as the public interface, the officer work and training area and the secure holding cell area of the facility. The secondary building is used for enclosed vehicle inspections and houses the firing range. Finally, the commercial building allows for complete unloading and inspections of semi-trucks.

Bud Clark Commons in Portland, Oregon by Holst Architecture

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Holst Architecture

Project Overview

As a centerpiece of Portland’s Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness, Bud Clark Commons (BCC) represents a new approach to providing dignified housing and comprehensive services to help those experiencing homelessness. Funded by a combination of low-income housing tax credits, urban renewal funding, and HUD stimulus dollars, the project sets a new standard by combining permanent supportive housing and temporary shelter with a community resource center.

Located at the gateway to downtown Portland near historic Union Station, BCC sits between the Pearl District, an upper-income mixed-use neighborhood, and Old Town/Chinatown, a district undergoing an unprecedented level of redevelopment. The LEED Platinum project achieves a perceivable balance between the rigorous programmatic requirements of a coalition led by the City of Portland, a progressive design approach, and sustainable building practices.

The project’s mission is to provide a continuum of services to help transition homeless individuals toward stable, permanent living arrangements. The architecture helps achieve this goal in the expression of both form and function: a walk-in day center with public courtyard and access to services; a 90-bed temporary shelter; and a separate and secure entrance to 130 efficient, furnished studio apartments for homeless men or women seeking permanent housing with support services.

Nakano fireproof wooden House in Tokyo Prefecture, Japan by Masashi Ogihara Architect & Associates

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Masashi Ogihara Architect & Associates

A site is an area where a residence crowds in Tokyo.

Since restriction of the 7-meter minimum altitude had started, many houses of 3 stories were built and had been located in a line around the site.

Therefore, except the south side which a road connects, they were the conditions which cannot expect many taking in outside environment to an inside.
