Woodland Residences in Austin, TX by Derrington Building Studio

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

Article source: Derrington Building Studio

WDLD_Project Description

Woodland is a small residential community nestled among a grove of large trees in a neighborhood that is just minutes outside of downtown Austin, Texas.  The development started with a simple program of four houses, but quickly became complex through the site’s general conditions and restrictions. Unusual property lines, a steep bluff, and an abundance of old-growth trees squeezed the buildable area for the project. This, in turn, presented privacy and view concerns given the close proximity of each house to the surrounding trees, as well as one other. Along with these issues, permitting violations from a previous owner had to be overcome.

In working with a limited budget and economical materials, we placed extra attention on massing and fenestration. This particular house is 850 square feet of living space and includes two bedrooms and one and half baths. Simplicity of form with dynamic elements and limited use of color creates an impactful form without being overly dramatic. , Image Courtesy © Craig Washburn

With the aim of displaying six real size bathrooms we decided to design each of them inspired to a human type – the family, the intellectual couple, the ecologist couple, the designer, the manger, the fashion addict – thus creating the conditions to imagine and represent taste and inclinations of the owner/s.

Campo Viejo Winery – Juan Alcorta Winery in Logroño, Spain by Ignacio Quemada Architects

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

Article source: Ignacio Quemada Architects

The Campo Viejo Winery lies on a plateau on the River Ebro valley, the Rad de Santa Cruz, which is covered by 37 hectares of undulating vineyards with marvellous views in all directions.  The programme is split into two parts, which means that the visiting area is located on the vineyard, château-like, whereas the winery, which covers a surface area of 45,000 m², cannot conceivably be sited on the hill, but is built into it, like a work of land art, and is concealed from the vineyard.
