Family house in Punta Canide, Spain by Díaz y Díaz Arquitectos

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Article source: Díaz y Díaz Arquitectos

This detached house is located in Punta Canide, Oleiros, in the Bay, with stunning sea views. Due to this location, the building should respond to some very specific buildable constrains and setbacks, required by municipal regulations, as well as the morphology of the land itself, which required adapting to the slope of the plot, with a drop of nearly three metres. We also searched for the best orientation to promote the best views of the building sight.

Three materials are the absolute protagonists of this work, concrete, wood and glass.

Student Housing Campus Eindhoven University of Technology in Netherlands by Office Winhov + office haratori in collaboration with BDG Architecten Almere

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Article source: Office Winhov

Work began on building the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 1957 based on the urban development plan of S.J. van Embden. His design aimed at creating an idealised factory environment for technical research and study consisting of tall, modern buildings on stilts that were connected with one another and with the laboratories and workshops located in between them by means of aerial walkways. The plan followed the modern ideal of self-contained buildings in a continuous landscape. The rational structure in which the buildings followed a fixed grid pattern was expressed in the curtain walls of the first generation of buildings on the campus. A master plan for the reorganisation and expansion of the campus has been drawn up following the original design. It envisages the introduction of accommodation for students and researchers on the north side of the campus on the edge of the green brook valley of the Dommel.

Colégio dos plátanos in Sintra by murmuro

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Article source: murmuro

Colégio dos Plátanos is a school in Sintra which educates children from the age of 3 to 14; the project consists of the expansion and reorganization of the school. Having acquired a set of low quality buildings east of the existing school, the client intended to demolish them and expand the school complex eastwards, adding a series of new classrooms, complementary spaces and sport facilities. During the design phase the client changed course and decided to maintain the east buildings and commissioned a new construction of smaller scale, connecting the east and west buildings that had to be built in two phases, allowing for a reduced investment since our country was facing an economic crisis and on the verge of the troika intervention (IMF, EC, ECB). This decision also required the development of an intermediate structural solution and controlled demolitions in order not to interrupt the daily school operation; only with the conclusion of the second phase will the entire complex be fully articulated.

Ctrl+Green in Madrid Río, Spain by RuizEsquiroz + Marta Muñoz Arquitectos

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: RuizEsquiroz + Marta Muñoz Arquitectos 

Ctrl+Green is a renovation project of an industrial space, changing its use into an office/house in the vicinity of Madrid Río. The architectural strategies are based on duplication and saving, both energy and space. Firstly, we duplicate some architectural elements (the floor and the façade) creating active chambers. Secondly, and thanks to the first strategy, we save and store energy as well as multiple objects (mainly books, tools and furniture), clearing the way for the views of Madrid´s skyline.

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: Mariano Molina Iniesta 

When faced sometimes with the question “what kind of architecture are we up to?”, the most convincing answer is probably “the one that circumstances allow”. This is particularly true in the case of a refurbishment, in which preexistences, coupled with the program and the wishes of the client, leave little room for a purely speculative proposal.
