Piedrabuena House in Ciudad Real, Spain by MUKA arquitectura

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

Article source: MUKA arquitectura

Ceramics, in Piedrabuena house, acquires many qualities as a relevant element in the house. The continuing presence of this material in the municipality and the low budget suggested a proposal able to re-read its more material condition. In a plot of two and a half meters of façade, the use of an embossed clay slab, put off the edges of the floor slabs, acts as if it were a ceramic curtain. A curtain that hides any reference to the domestic size of the gaps and proposes itself to unify the surrounding façades. The scale disappears and the proposal enhances the link between existing buildings. The alternate arrangement of the module part to rope and on edge draws a porous and vibrant lattice. Vibrant is the play of shadows cast and changing, and porous because it filters the direct light that penetrates to the interior of the house on the vertical glass cloth behind her.

X House in Warsaw, Poland by STOPROCENT Architekci

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

Article source: STOPROCENT Architekci

The X House was designed in rather extraordinary circumstances. Before any design work started, the client commissioned a series of talks/discussions on architecture with our team. During the meetings we discussed and analyzed many various houses from all around the world. The aim was, on one hand, to provide a wide context for the work, and on the other – to get to know better the needs of the client and his family. These architecture sessions allowed us to set the framework for the future house quite precisely. The X house is not only supposed to serve as a comfortable living space for the family of four, but also to allow each of the family members to pursue their individual passions. Therefore, on top of the regular scope of a single family house, the design needed to provide space for diving equipment, kites, surfboards, a quad, motorbikes, skiing equipment, bikes, rollerblades.

Londra Housing in Bucharest, Romania by ADN BA

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

Article source: ADN BA

The building occupies one of the few remaining lots in an old neighborhood of historical and architectural value in the central area of Bucharest.

The space-structure gives the urban presence of the proposed building a weight that counterbalances the extent of the glazed surfaces, while the retraction of the central span and the asymmetry of the cornice are aimed at dividing the house into two volumes closer to the neighboring scale.

BEI Function Space in Beijing, China by neri & hu

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Article source: neri & hu

Neri&Hu rehauls Opposite House’s BEI restaurant into “BEI Space” a multipurpose function room serving the increasing demand for meeting and event spaces in Beijing. While the typical function room in a hotel tends to be situated in dark enclosures with no natural light, the given site actually has an existing skylight. To fully utilize this asset, the design challenge becomes how to bring in as much light as possible to the space and how to subdue any sense of being underground. The resulting design concept, first, creates a landscape zone that is bathed in light, and second, inserts within it a luminous glass box.
