Pisek city forest administration in Czech Republic by Huť architektury Martin Rajniš s.r.o.

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

Article source: Huť architektury Martin Rajniš s.r.o.

The administration of the forest of the town of Pisek held a competition for a new operational building on a beautiful site at the edge of the forest; sloping to the south, it has a splendid view. Our foresters’ lodge is a box sliced in half by the hallway and its charm lies in the way that all of the outer layers of the building are wrapped around it: the linear winter gardens and the slanting shade-awnings. The interface between architecture and nature is a few steps wide, from an interior space surrounded by several layers you fi nd your way to the exterior. The structure also has several layers: the classic form of the box is supplemented with the wooden framing structure that supports the awnings. Down below, at the village, is an oasting-house (a building where ears of grain are left to dry to release the seeds) and we had the idea of making for this little house a kind of sister, a geometrically faithful copy in the form of a lumber stack, and that it could be the forest’s information centre.

BALINT HOUSE in VALENCIA, SPAIN by FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

Article source:  FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

A privileged place within a golf course near to Valencia is the starting point of this project.

The proposal is drawn with elliptical traces which contain the program and maximize the possibilities of local urban law by minimizing the volumetric impact on the site. Thus, a piece with a continuous façade that seems to lodge only one floor is set on the site. The aerodynamic visuals of it guide the eye towards the deepness of the neighbouring landscape.

PODERE NAVIGLIANO in Italy by Ciclostile Arctettura

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

Article source: Ciclostile Architettura

Podere Navigliano is an antique tuscan farmhouse in the heart of Sienese Clays where nature and history are the undisputed protagonists. This project is the evolution of thought Smallness which characterized all previous projects of the office.

In this case especially the materials but also the attention to the historical context and the environment are at the heart of the project; the reinterpretation of traditional elements has allowed to find a new language, a new aesthetic inseparably linked to the tradition.
