Our studio were excited to take on such an interesting project in the Fishing Village of Ferragudo, Portugal.  The historic center of Ferragudo is an extremely sensitive area to work in and we believed that our intervention should be balanced harmonious and above all integrate with the surrounding architecture and history.

BONAMPAK 77 in Cancún quintana roo, Mexico by SOSTUDIO / Sergio Orduña Architects

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Article source: SOSTUDIO / Sergio Orduña Architects

The BONAMPAK 77 project involves the building of commercial premises and offices on a plot of land located in Cancun´s most up and coming area. The building is divided up asymmetrically by a cube covered with red aluminum panels and slotted into place from the front of the building towards the back to create a space for elevators and the bridges linking up the two sections. The cube contains a triple-height space which is the very heart of the project and dominates the view of the hotel zone and the Caribbean.

HOUSE ON THE CLIFF in Alicante, Spain by FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Article source: FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

We like the virtue of architecture which makes possible constructing a house on air, walking on water…

An abrupt plot of land overlooking the sea, where what is best is to do nothing. It invites to stay.

A piece that respects the land’s natural contour is set in it.

holiday home in Vitznau, Switzerland by Lischer Partner Architekten Planer

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Article source: Lischer Partner Architekten Planer

The clients’ desire was to live in a timber house. However, the challenging geology, the exceptional hillside location and the existing environment prompted us to design a solid construction in which the hard shell of the concrete facade encases and protects the soft core of the timber house. The prefabricated timber frame cassettes were erected, sealed and insulated on site and clad with single skin concrete. The timber construction stands as ‘a house in a house’. In combination with the concrete shell, it was possible to optimise its load bearing dimensions as it does not have to resist any shear forces.

BES pavilion in Ha Tinh, Vietnam by H&P Architects

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Article source: H&P Architects

BES pavilion is a service space for an open community, focusing on the aspects of art and culture. Located in the central Ha Tinh city, BES (Bamboo + Earth + Stone) is set up from local materials and traditional building methods which based on the idea of centralizing the users.

The building’s users will have a great chance to approach and to be educated from the functions and effects of the building toward the nature and local community.The best way to learn is to do it! Joining in the building process to create their own specific space is an effective practicing condition. The solutions of the pavilion’s design themselves become some useful lesions: Aerodynamics (ventilation), Physics (light diffusion), Biology (photosynthesis, planting)…Those will help to direct the users’ behaviors in the future – for a greener living environment.

AA HOUSE in Almería, Spain by MVN Arquitectos

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Article source: MVN Arquitectos

Up in the light, abandoned the heart, is delivered. Collected. Finally lulled and without penalty. Hosts In the light where no one suffers violence, because it has gotten there, in that light, without and even force any door without opening it, without going through lintels of light and shadow, without effort and without protection. “ María Zambrano, Notes of a method.

The AA Home project arose from the need to build a site able to create a meaningful place. “So the house does not destroy this sense of peace that I had the first time I looked at the horizon from this hill, and to protect it” they asked us.

Hakko Kyoto by Osamu Morishita Architects & Associates

The internet age. This description is already obsolete. This age is passing quickly. The cloud computing world is now.

When wandering about in the cloud of information, things are not recognized clearly for what they are as each bit of information is not clearly defined in either its characteristic or identity. In the cloud computing world, we can know “IT” without actually touching anything real. If we type a keyword in any search engine, we get the information we want quickly. Sports car, British car, SUV, Jaguar, Land Rover, and so on. In the clouds, we have already discovered what we need to know about the goods we desire to purchase. But they are not yet physical, just virtual.

Nuovi spazi espositivi Fondazione Cini onlus by Cattaruzza e Millosevich Architetti Associati

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Article source: Cattaruzza e Millosevich Architetti Associati

The new exhibition spaces for Fondazione Cini onlus, stem from the restoration of a building of the early nineteenth century, designed for a bonded warehouse, deeply changed by a heavy work of reclaim in 1954, functional to its reuse as a boarding school.
The works in 1954 lead to an obvious conflict with the original set-up:
