The beginning condition for this house is born from the trapezoidal shape of the plot, located in a residential area. The vegetation is a dense element of edge. That is the reason why the house is proposed like a volume where focusing views becomes specially important.

OFFICE OFF in Burgenland, Austria by heri&salli

Friday, August 8th, 2014

Article source: heri&salli

The architect’s office heri & salli from Vienna designed in Burgenland/Austria on behalf of the façade design company “FOB-face of buildings” a new office building made of wood.

Though normally a place dedicated to “work”, from the beginning the concept of quality of life and leisure culture took a mayor part in the planning. The traditional aspect of “going to work” therefore has received minor consideration.

SOROCABA HOUSE in Sao Paulo, Brazil by Estudio BRA Arquitetura

Friday, August 8th, 2014

Article source: Estudio BRA Arquitetura

Located in a residential neighborhood in Sorocaba City, 80km from Sao Paulo, Brazil, the horizon has been marked by the shape of this contemporary house.

Composed of two overlapping volumes, the house derives from the intention to release the largest possible area for living spaces and provide fluidity between the spaces. The upper volume was designed bigger than the lower one, because of that half of the house seems to float on the ground and provides shadow and a relaxing space on the yard.

Beast in Austin, USA by Specht Harpman

Friday, August 8th, 2014

Article source: Specht Harpman

This project involved the renovation and adaptive re-use of an existing single-story brick building in downtown Austin.  The structure, built in the 1920’s, housed a wide variety of tenancies through the years, from a mom-and pop grocery store to leasing offices for new downtown condominiums.  The current owner, a creative company involved with film production, was on an extremely limited budget, and wanted to re-use as much of what existed as possible while making something that was uniquely “Austin” in character.
