Primary Care Center in L’Aldea, Spain by Josep Camps & Olga Felip

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Article source: Josep Camps & Olga Felip

The Rambla Catalunya is the nexus avenue of connection and growth of l’Aldea. Parallel to this avenue is the City Council Street, the station and the various public spaces like the Via Verde hiking trail, that generates a second umbilical cord for the site. Various roads that lead to the Delta cross this axis, like the Ligallo Carvallo Street. The roads, or ligallos, are circulation axes that define a spatial fabric of farms of the Ebro River delta. The site is located at the junction of one of the ligallos road and a new street, product of the current urban planning. At this point, two spatial fabrics are superimposed, the traditional fabric of the rice farms and the fabric of urban abstraction.

Family House Libochovany – extension in Czech Republic by 3+1 architekti

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

Article source: 3+1 architekti

We are asking how to adapt a hundred years old  and only little maintained house to everyday needs of a modern family (small floor space, technology and materials not functional anymore, lacking sanitary facilities …). At the same time we do not want to break or violate soft, sensitive links and layerings created here over the time, as these generate a strong character of this place – magical (and familiar) atmosphere.

Residence in Kifissia, Greece by Tense Architecture Network

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

Article source: Tense Architecture Network

The residence’s plot is small and an adjacent building almost blocks the southern sun. The main part of the field should remain free and become the residence itself: an austere prism, centrally supported, hovers above the liberated ground. At first, an area was defined: a cubic shell of plants creates a limit for the house. In order to reside, ones withdraws in. Three metallic columns support a net of inox ropes where plants have already started to climb in order to generate a volume equally important to the house’s prisms.

Edifici sul fiume Oglio in Brescia, Italy by dep studio

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

Article source: dep studio

The project involved two buildings along the Oglio river separated by a rectangular courtyard. The main building is on three storeys above ground and one below, the other on two storeys above ground. Right from the start, the aim of the restoration was to simplify the appearance of a building that had undergone a series of rather haphazard conversions over the course of time.
