1770 in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

1770 is a bold, rustic beach house on a truly unique site on the edge of the Coral Sea. The east-facing house is conceived around a northerly courtyard (which sits in the lee of the wind) with transparent walls allowing panoramic views from all parts of the house. A rustic, raw material palette of stone, silvering timber and textured plaster speaks of the natural weathering that this place is all about.

Municipal Auditorium Of Lucena in Cordoba, Spain by MX_SI architectural studio

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: MX_SI architectural studio

The building project housing the Municipal Auditorium at Lucena recognizes the importance of the proximity to the river, the city’s exhibition centre and integration with the landscape as well as the extreme climatic conditions of the area.

The walk along the river provides a spatial sequence based on different gradients of open, semi-covered, covered and enclosed spaces. As a prelude, a large space or open forum is created for crowds to congregate at concerts and outdoor events.

Mont-Àgora in Barcelona, Spain by Pere Puig arquitecte, SLP

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: Pere Puig arquitecte, SLP

Santa Margarida de Montbui was a small municipality that the great immigration wave of the nineteen fifties and sixties turned into a dormitory town on the industrial outskirts of Barcelona.

In recent decades it has gradually acquired the basic services that it severely lacked: urbanisation of streets, health care facilities, schools, etc. Still missing though is a cultural centre capable of housing a library, conference room, auditorium and classrooms. In some way, this building represents the end of a trajectory from slum to city.

Gemdale Changshou Road in Shanghai, China by Aedas

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: Aedas

Designed by Andrew Bromberg at Aedas, Gemdale Changshou Road is located within the inner ring of Shanghai urban city, near the historic Changde Road with close proximity to two metro stations and a planned future green area in the residential zone on the south. The 45,000-square-metre project consists of an office tower and a retail podium. The project had an interesting challenge as a bridge between the low-rise, residential developments to the south and Changshou Road to the north.

Retoños House in Quito, Ecuador by ESEcolectivo

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: ESEcolectivo

The Retoños house belongs to a large extended family made up of several smaller families. The clients, Alvaro and María, wanted a house in which to bring together their 16 family members, including children and grandchildren. As a close-knit family, they get together very often. Until now, this took place in a small apartment in Quito, so they were looking for a quieter place far from the noise and drab environment of the city.

Salcedo Social Center in Galicia, Spain by Santos y Mera Arquitectos S.L.P.

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: Santos – Mera arquitectos

In a cluttered environment we propose a refuge, a wood in small forest cabin, a palisade that filters views but at the same time makes it very open, very permeable to the nearby environment and especially to the square and the adjacent green area a haven. The interior volume is modeled generating small courtyards, transitional spaces where shown the interior wood skin that only comes out in the big hole that crosses the fence to look out over the square giving continuity to the large multipurpose space, allowing incorporate outer space for outdoor activities. One of the courtyards, become larger and more permeable, and it serves like a space for access to the building “patín” mode of traditional houses in the area. The simplicity of volume, color and texture must be enough to convert the center into a small local and an urban reference, giving a friendly and easily recognizable image.

Buena Vista in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

Buena Vista challenges the idea of what a house looks like in a contemporary Brisbane suburb. The architectural idea centres around a brick and sheet metal industrial aesthetic that simultaneously references and subverts the local vernacular. The house embraces the courtyard plan which affords the occupants city views whilst allowing an intimate and private lifestyle.

The Craft Company in Cascais, Portugal by phdd arquitectos

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: phdd arquitectos

The Craft Company is a small shop in the historic center of Cascais, on two floors with about 40m2 each. Initially there were three “nicely” fitted.

The yarn store invites us to a journey in time, the meeting between the modern and the classic. That was the customer’s goal and was the principle for the development of the project.

Physical Therapy Clinic in Granada, Spain by CUAC Arquitectura

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Article source: CUAC Arquitectura 

Stretchers, hoola-hoops, wedges, rollers, bosus, Pilates balls of various sizes… It would be a shame to hide all the tools that allow for physiotherapy exercises to occur in a clinic that lacks technological machinery. If there is something that characterizes the commercial shop that previously stood on this site, is its exterior display, through the means of a façade opening. Continuing through it, in a passive way, its old exhibitionist framework and purpose.
