Costa House in Almada, Portugal by Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Article source: Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

The house where our intervention took place consists of a villa located in the seaside resort city of Costa da Caparica. This is a specific and surgical intervention in a highly deteriorated villa from the seventies. Although the refurbishment seemed urgent the financial contention demanded that the substantial architectonic intervention was limited to the 1st floor, attic and terrace over the garage, the rest of the house being renovated in a simpler and more convenient way.

SG House in Rosà, Italy by Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Article source: Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin 

A detached house built on three levels and situated in a small rural village, in an agricultural context consisting of land planted with corn. The entrance opens directly onto the living area, through sliding windows overlooking the double height porch. The outdoor paving continues even inside the house, to emphasize the close relationship with the surrounding countryside. The project is based on the strong contrast between the outside of the house, more rustic and tied to local building traditions, and the interior, more contemporary, with smooth spaces arranged in succession, without interruption.

Applecross McCowan Residence in Perth, Australia by iredale pedersen hook

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Article source: iredale pedersen hook

Our clients desired a building that would endure time, evoke a sense of permanence and a sense of already existing on the site. Brick was the natural choice that immediately met this requirement.

The site sits on the edge of the Swan River with views to the city of Perth. The design creates an experiential connection to the meandering river, a fluid and dynamic body of water that has carved out mass forming a direct engagement with the occupant.

The Gate in Busan, Korea by Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Article source: Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

I was surprised twice when I first visited the Daekyoung Factory. The first surprise was the beautiful scenery of the mouth or the river of the Nakdong River, and the second surprise was that the beautiful scenery could not be seen at all from the factory complex. There were three buildings in the complex, with two buildings lined up on parallel lines, making a rectangular plaza. The plaza was busy, with many workers passing by. The third building was placed perpendicularly with the plaza, blocking the scenery towards the sea. I felt sorry for the factory workers, who are so close to the beautiful scenery, but could not even see it.

Choco Luce in Chuncheongnam-do, South Korea by studio_GAON

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Article source: studio_GAON

In Gongju city, Lucia’s husband Johan built a chocolatery and named it <Choco Luce> next to <Lucia’s Earth>, a space provided to study and consume tea.

The building is roofed with blue tiles and is situated adjacent from the fence and the garden of <Lucia’s Earth>. As a layer of cement was, with care, peeled off of pillars from an old Hanok (Korean traditional house) that was revived into the chocolatery, the <Choco Luce> yields rather a modern atmosphere comparatively to that of <Lucia’s Earth>’s traditional sentiment. Re-visitation, I believe, indeed is a glimpse of an aspect of constructing property and a part of building history.

“Structure as space designer”

Structure stops hiding behind the drawing and comes out to participate as the main character of the play.

Based on the structure performance, everything occurs. The stage combines different but simple lines, materials, forms and senses.
