Edge House by Mobius Architects

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Article source: Mobius Architects

The house owes its narration to a local anomaly – a slope plot with a view on the mountains surrounding Cracow is knifed through by an 8-meter lime rock.

The rock edge divides the plot into two levels, the lower one providing full privacy to the house owners, while the upper one – offering a panoramic view, as well as neighboring other buildings. It is an expression of the seemingly impossible – to build a house on the edge and to connect to plot parts to be able to use its potential to the fullest.

A mixed use building in Nancy, France by Anne DEMIANS

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Article source: Anne DEMIANS

Nancy, A Modern City for Over Three Centuries

Throughout the various periods of its urban development, Nancy’s vision always preceded its architectural commissions. The city suburbs were initially attributed to the original castle town, and in the eighteenth century, a message of unity was asserted at the annexation of Lorraine to the Kingdom of France. And this was an opportunity to highlight the ducal power around an exceptional architecture (classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site). At the beginning of the twentieth century, the architecture in Nancy successfully integrated the richness of the École de Nancy in its constructions, just as it was able to promote new ideas on building and construction in the footsteps of the architect and designer Jean Prouvé, who was also mayor of Nancy after the Liberation. This identity and legacy continues today with the reconquest of the riverbanks of the Meurthe: the city of the twenty-first century.

The House in Cassà, Spain by Ricard Galiana Nadal . arquitecte

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Article source: Ricard Galiana Nadal . arquitecte

“The House in Cassà project is a detached single-family house built in a new neighborhood in Cassà de la Selva (Girona). The house is situated in a plot with a small slope facing the south which is divided in two different levels. The upper level hosts the main rooms and swimming pool whereas the lower level accommodates the garden and the parking. The main rooms are distributed along a single floor divided in two concrete blocks –“night and day areas”– , with a double-height living room and a mezzanine creating a transparent space connecting both blocks. The two blocks offer the needed degree of privacy to each space while taking into consideration the private views, the street, the forest and the solar orientation. The northern backyard provides a pedestrian access in contact with the forest. The south porch-terrace faces the swimming pool.”
