Pastoral Center of Moscavide in Portugal by Plano Humano Arquitectos

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Article source: Plano Humano Arquitectos 

From the need to serve multiple functions, the Pastoral Center of Moscavide is composed by a set of facilities that include catechesis rooms, funeral chapels, and the parish residence, and these needs.

The close proximity and connection with the Church of Santo António of Moscavide, a building undergoing classification as a property of national interest, provided premises for dialogue and framing. The two buildings stand out as landmarks of two eras that, although different, complement each other as reference points in the community.

The scheme included working around an existing slab & steel structure. With minor modifications to the structure, and some small extensions to the portal steel frames, we were able to create open, light filled spaces with private bedroom pods each having private deck and garden areas.

Haus S in Bolzano, Italy by bergmeisterwolf architekten

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Article source: bergmeisterwolf architekten 

five vacation apartments, connected by the base (garage), are twisted around a shared courtyard. house s aims to be one with the site, the landscape, and the village. following the houses of the neighborhood, the traditional materials of stone and wood are used: natural stone for the base and quartered logs for the façade. the house, placed on an incline, follows local topography only breaking at edges in the terrain. the house outgrows and yet grows into the landscape at the same time – a twist. the house’s position along a street results in a sort of yard in the back part with a vista towards a clearing – a natural recreation area. the upper part of the building, made of wood, lies on the stone base. its height and movement complies with the surrounding rooftops. however, it allows for free vistas between the rooftops of the neighboring houses, revealing wide-open views of the landscape. the result is a sort of movement, a dynamic that includes the neighboring houses without them being the main focus.

Article source: Rena Sakellaridou & Morpho Papanikolaou, SPARCH

We recycle ideas, architectural concepts, structures, buildings, materials. We experiment with hybrids that step out from what exists and are transformed through new programs. How do you transform the former paper factory in Marzabotto into a place for culture, development and innovation? How do you recycle this old industrial plant into new life and uses? How do you give the Green Academy strong presence?

The Shadow House in Mumbai, India by Samira Rathod Design Associates

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Article source: Samira Rathod Design Associates

Set on the foothills of Maharashtra in Alibaug, far away from the busy city life of Mumbai. The plot was a dry barren piece of parched earth. When I first saw it, there were two lonely trees; a view of the hills in the distance and dry fields all the way to the sky, all around.

In that scorching heat, there was only one desire- to be lulled back into that familiar dark, cold, calmness.
