4 in 1 House in Murcia, Spain by Clavel Arquitectos

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: Clavel Arquitectos

The 4-in-1 house is located in a quiet residential area, at the top of a leafy hill in the outskirts of the city. From an architectural point of view, it is possible to distinguish the four ways of living, after which the house is named, since they are spatially and constructively qualified:

1. The leisure experience. The basement, lighted by patios and skylights, is the scene for game and amusement. Fun starts in the car park, where see the swimming pool can be seen from a “rear window”. The pavement, made out of stained stamped concrete, solves the contact between the house and the ground. This level, in the form of a zigzagging fissure across the plot, houses the vehicle access and the car park.

Article source: Picharchitects 

The building is located in a dense urban area with a poor road infrastructure and practically no open spaces. The old market was demolished, as its structure was completely obsolete. The new Multifunctional Building has the aim of re-using the place in a more intensive way.

Mediatheque in Carballo, Spain by Oscar Pedros Architects

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: Oscar Pedros Architects

“Thinking on a 21th. Century library -as a friend of mine would say-, is like wondering about a book´s cemetery”. At that point, all efforts must conciliate architectonic non-variable values as sequence, promenade and staying with immateriality brought by new technologies. There is no other solution than sharing jealously material space with virtuality to avoid Carballo´s newest building ending as book warehouse.

Boulder Retreat in Wyoming by Carney Logan Burke Architects

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: Carney Logan Burke Architects 

The Boulder Retreat is located adjacent to a ski resort in Wyoming. The owners’ program called for a modest but expandable residential program to be interpreted in an architectural language that is abstract rather than literal in referencing the ubiquitous “western log cabin”.

Veranda in Shanghai, China by tf Architecture + ppas

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: tf Architecture

According to an ambitious plan, the Jinshan Modern Agricultural Park, located on the southwestern outskirts of Shanghai, is being transformed into a suburban park with composite functions. Enhancement of the public space in the core area of the park is the pilot project for initiating this transformation. In the conception of design, the veranda, an essential element in traditional Chinese gardening, has been selected as the theme of the design. In the park, a veranda extending in the east–west direction links up several isolated agricultural tourism projects on the north side of the freeway. This veranda will be expanded farther westward and will pass through the eastern landscape mound to be integrated with other tourism projects towards the south via a pedestrian bridge. The landscape mound on the south side of the veranda will isolate the park from the noise and sight of the freeway, and the freeway-facing side of the park, together with the veranda, will form an extended earthscape, thereby ensuring high identifiability along the freeway line.

The Regional Council of Judea District in Beit Shemesh, Israel by YBGSNA

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: YBGSNA

Our proposal for the new Regional Council of Building of the District of Judea is based on a balance between our desire to insert a modest intervention in the landscape and a need to design a public building with a substantial formal presence. The relatively large lot (almost 20 dunam) and the modest program, led us to divide the areas into three building masses: a formal “cube” at the upper road with two wings at the lower road, embracing a public plaza.

PC House in Guadalajara, Mexico by Agraz Arquitectos

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos

In the search to create an architectural piece that comes from innovative forms and finds -in that quest- the paths to perpetuate this condition, Ricardo Agraz and Karina Castro combine efforts and imagination. The result is [ PC ] House, a dwelling based and tailor made for a family program that takes the land as the perfect frame for doing so: it takes the river’s length for self adaptation.

And once this natural environment is tamed, the structure is used to contain it within the house, entering the backyard towards the living room and dinning room.

Apartment in Poznan, Poland by PL.architekci

Friday, September 23rd, 2016

Article source: PL.architekci

The starting point in creating the interior was the investor’s collection of paintings, antique furniture and extensive library of books. The apartment was divided and furnished in order to expose these items, but in such a way that they do not compete and do not dominate the space. All the new furniture pieces are very minimalistic and free of any visible details. The books have been closed in double-sided bookcases, which also serve as separators of the communication area and they also contain a bio fireplace and a TV set. The kitchen was also designed in a minimalistic way and all the appliances have been hidden in closets.
