House in Litoral Alentejano by aires mateus

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

Article source: aires mateus 

The program includes four houses and a water tank. The water tank will be a square of whitewashed plaster where a pool is found and a line draws the shower.  The placement of the several houses will be decided by each owner.  The first house is a square. The living room is disposed around a courtyard that provides indirect lighting. Secondary compartments inhabit the interior of thick walls that form the central living room.  These areas, compressed by a lifted ground and a lowered ceiling, become spaces which group to limit and define the “exterior volume,” emphasizing it as the main space of the house.

SAN JERÓNIMO 17 in Granada, Spain by CUAC ARQUITECURA

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

Article source: CUAC ARQUITECURA

Saint Jerome 17 is a workspace, an office that brings together concepts and materials displaced within a local situated in the historic center of Granada. Marked by the presence of a strong structure made of brick walls 60 cm. wide and wooden floors from the late nineteenth century, this place is a palimpsest of successive interventions to wich we adhere us with recycled elements: a series of shuttering wood pieces is used for the creation of a channeling-cabinet infrastructure for network cabling and storage of books or models; six wooden doors, some metal shutters and pieces of glass saved from its demolition with several metal profiles from the refurbishment of a house in Granada are assembled for the formation of new holes. Even the plasterboard fragments left without starting by the previous tenant are connected and transformed into a new infrastructure for electricity and lighting. A 4×1 meters high door taken from our old studio is finally transferred as a cornerstone. Saint Jerome 17 is a project born of opportunity, made of what we find in the place, with the movement of materials from previous works or even with the discovery of unexpected historic contiguities. It is possible to make visible this dynamic, as well as reveal their different strata, mapping and modeling each brick, her wounds, dignifying its heritage presence as part of a continuous history of overlapping elements that we incorporate both minimizing energy invested as our presence.

JC CARRIERE THEATER in Montpellier, France by A+Architecture

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

Article source: A+Architecture

The Domaine of O, departmental domain of art and culture, is an exceptional place that combines history and modernity, nature and culture. Before anything else it is a place shaped by History that maintains its finery to the South of the site, its beautiful flowerbeds and its original plant species, a testimony of history, that of the famous “folies héraultaises”. At no point was it about contemplating a glorious past, keeping it and simply fixing it. On the contrary we envisionned a place turned towards the future, and what better way to testify our confidence in the future than building a cultural facility of this kind?

Woodland is near the River Yar and lies within the Causeway Conservation Area. The site was purchased by a retired couple who have made the island their home. Although anxious to preserve the character of the Causeway they wanted to replace an existing timber cottage with a more open dwelling and a new garden.
