Beach House in Palillos Beach, Peru by Vertice Arquitectos

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Article source: Vertice Arquitectos

The project develops on an irregular shaped terrain inside a difficult area, but with a privileged view to the sea in the lot E-3 from “Palillos” beach, at the south of Lima. Taking advantage of the lot slope, the project is propose as a volume set worked with different materials and textures in three levels that work together as a unit, obtaining several space relations between the interior and the outside. Without forgetting the most important requests asked by the client: the sea view must be from the most of the rooms, the more important space will be the social area, and finally independence and tranquility from the private area.

Museo del Acero Horno3 in Monterrey, Mexico by Surfacedesign Inc. + Harari arquitectos

Project Statement

A team of international designers collaborated to transform a decommissioned blast furnace and a brownfield site into a modern history museum dedicated to the region’s rich history of steel production. Borrowing from materials endemic to the site, innovative landscape design weaves together with modern architecture to usher an old relic into the 21st century. Environmentally sensitive technologies — such as green roofs and a storm water collection system — offer a new approach to the landscape while respecting the original context.

Conde Two Houses in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Estudio HMA

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Article source: Estudio HMA

From the beginning this project had to answer to two different voices, or two customers. Both required the same amount of square meters for their future homes. Perhaps the greatest achievement of this project was understanding how to complete the entire buildable volume equally for both owners without them losing the ability to access almost all of the lot size in width and length. The strategy chosen for this purpose was to criss cross the meters that corresponded to each of them so that both units rotated through the axis of the central courtyard in a centrifuge-like manner. To criss cross both properties it was decided to use stairs that functioned  as sleeve-like bridges connecting both units.

A Small School in The Grand Paris By Hubert & Roy Architectes Et Associés

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Article source: Hubert & Roy Architectes Et Associés

The school at Le Bourget is modelled after its changing neighbourhood, an area facing the landscape of Grand Paris, connected to the city by green “corridors”, and brought near Paris thanks to its nearby train station. Just like a vertebrate organism slipping into the fragmented plot, the school is designed based on a structure entirely made out of timber, digitized and optimized, prefabricated in a workshop-factory and mounted in a few months by two craftsmen. This structure, including structural frames every 1.50 m, is covered with a green roof for water retention and thermal mass. Elevations of the structure are cladded with glass and aluminium panels aligned on the 1.50 m frame to frame distance. Therefore, the aluminium envelope is only 4 mm thick and the insulation fits within the thickness of the structure.

Article source: Architektu biuras G.Natkevicius ir partneriai

This is the first crematorium in Lithuania. The idea to build a crematorium was born in the interwar period, but at that time only furnace to reduce medical waste in Kaunas hospital was built. Increasing cremation traditions Lithunians use cremation services in Latvia and Poland. To make a path for the first crematorium in Lithuania wasn’t easy. Despite the big enthusiasm, the catholic mind and political hypocrisy, the lack and imperfections of environmental and other laws were overcome only in 2011. The owners of Kedainiai crematorium, doctor and environmentalist, showed the strength.

House on Gelukstraat in Ghent, Belgium by Dierendocnkblancke Architecten

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Article source: Dierendocnkblancke Architecten

A very small plot in the centre of ghent. The client wants an extension of his house that borders the building plot, and an apartment to rent. On the ground floor we provide an atelier connected through a small courtyard with the owner’s house and entrance to the parent apartment. Given the very limited surface, circulation is minimized by placing the stairs to the upper floor in the living space. To maximize as much as possible the useful surface of the apartment, a very thin cladding is opted. So the whole volume is covered with a 2mm thick PVC-film.

Article source: Paul Burnham Architect Pty Ltd

The Cottesloe House is a new family residence located close to the very popular Cottesloe Beach in Perth, Western Australia. The site is a long narrow north facing beach side property with excellent views from the upper level. The raised natural features of the site allowed the basement garage to be effectively set at street level allowing for elevated ground floor level and first floor level. The upper level has been lifted to the maximum height permitted under the local planning scheme to take the best advantage of the outstanding panoramic view potential.
