Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Article source: Arhitektura d.o.o. 

The apartment is located in a newly built row house in Ljubljana.

Due to a smaller plot and greater density the houses were planned as two-storey living units. As a result there is a problem of small floor space.

Bikini 32 residence and office, Madrid in Spain by hollegha arquitectos

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Article source: hollegha arquitectos 

To make a building of 4.75m width and 13m length not look narrow might be impossible. Nevertheless, interiors were supposed to be spacious and generous. Time to rethink traditional systems! So we developed a façade concept that occupies only 18cm and offers perfect insulation for both cold and heat. Columns are visible in the interior.

The relation between in and out is very much perceptible in the whole building. Due to its proportions, you may see the sun rise and set without leaving the room.

The One Person’s House provides potential inhabitant with comfort of having the house, intimacy with nature, distance from neighbor and quite important feature nowadays, garage – for car, motorcycle or bike with storing space, for example for windsurf board with the sail. Everything depends form the owners character.

Black Box in Lyon, France by TECTONIQUES

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Article source: TECTONIQUES

The DI-VA house, whose name is a play on the owners’ names, occupies a previously empty space in the residential Croix-Rousse district of Lyon.

Given the narrowness of the frontage, and the fact that there is a building directly opposite, the architects decided to adopt a judo-type strategy. The house turns away from direct confrontation, and exploits chinks in the landscape in order to optimise the views and ambiances. Entirely prefabricated, it was constructed in less than a week. Its sudden appearance came as something of a surprise to the neighbours, whose reactions were mixed. But in spite of its uncompromising colour and form, the building does not express any aggressiveness. On the contrary, it takes its place quite harmoniously in the surrounding topology, with tranquillity and a considerable degree of discretion.

Single family house in Madrid, Spain by hollegha arquitectos

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Article source: hollegha arquitectos

Being used to the spacial restrictions typical for a city with high density like Madrid, a 1 800m2 (19 370 sqft) plot almost makes you feel lost when you first enter it. We found it extremely important to create a home that integrates the outdoor space and makes it liveable. The climate is very dry and hot in summer, on the other hand you can use terraces all over the year if they are a little protected against sun, wind and rain.
