Article source: BudCud 

“We are home at last. Don’t stop, don’t wait. What can you do? Help!” Those words, proclaimed by famous actors and other participants of public life, could be heard from TV sets in the time of the Tadeusz Mazowiecki government. This phrase served as the motto for the 8th edition of the annual Warsaw Under Construction festival organized by the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and the Museum of Warsaw with guest curators from Architecture Institute from Cracow.

Wooden Family House in the Village in Dobříš, Czech Republic by Mimosa Architects

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

Article source: BoysPlayNice

The house is located in the colony of weekend cottages near a game preserve, which colony consists of small sized quaint houses, each of them being built according the taste and skill of its individual owner. The houses, mostly “non-kissed by architecture”, pay tribute to individual owner’s capriciousness and improvisation.

As to its shape our house seems, a little, a kind of freak, too. Its forms were motivated by the wish of its future occupiers to have an unusual, environmentally soft house (“no box”) built of natural materials.

Prazeres Building in Lisbon, Portugal by Aurora Arquitectos

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: Aurora Arquitectos

Can one house contain another two?

There is a question that is repeated frequently when intervening in an apartment building. In order to have a garden, one needs to renounce the view. In turn, to have the view it means to choose one of the last floors, usually far from where the garden is.

The Alves da Veiga project aimed to reconvert an old typography, built in the nineteenth century and abandoned for decades, in a set of six apartments, maintaining all the structure and spatial concept of preexistence.
