ALUMINIUM HOUSE in MADRID, SPAIN by FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

A consolidated landscape surrounded by gardens with big trees within the metropolis of Madrid is the fortunate starting point of this house.

The piece, of metallic and horizontal nature, produces the effect of having just one storey. With its proportions and materiality it both contrasts and blends with the tall trees of its environment.

BARIN SKI RESORT in Tehran, Iran by RYRA Studio

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: RYRA Studio

This ten-storey resort is located near Shemshak ski resort, the second largest ski resort in Iran and in only half an hour drive from the capital. In 2008, client requested architects to redesign a ski resort, a cozy and warm place for young people to relax in after skiing out in extremely cold weather. When the architects were brought on board to design the project, the base build had already been completed .The main structure and ceiling had been built in a classic cube shape, but the architects felt the rectangular shape was alien to the naturally sloping mountain formation.

“Fun-ctional box” Duplex Apartment in Telaviv, Israel by The K.O.T Project Architects and planners

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: The K.O.T Project Architects and planners 

What happens at the junction of a design rich aesthetic from the 50s through the 70s and the “cleanliness” of current design? When  minimalist utilitarian carpentry meets crafted objects and Oriental inspiration? What sparks when urbanity and nature loving coalesced? This intersection of worlds is found in the newly designed  Nahalat Yitzhak apartment in Tel Aviv.

An der Achalm in Reutlingen, Germany by Alexander Brenner Architekten

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: Alexander Brenner Architekten

The location on a steep south-facing slope required an access to the house from the public road running below to the site situated about 12 metres higher. These conditions inspired the idea of embedding a mountain pass road into the site, which serves both as a drive and a footpath.

House in Ramat Gan, Israel by Ella Sahar Architecture & Interior Design

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: Ella Sahar Architecture & Interior Design 

In the cube-shaped family home there is a striking interplay between open and closed spaces, the private and public domain, and light and darkness. The origin of this harmonious duality lies in the starting point of the planning process – the cube. Structurally, the cube is closed and confined; but when fused with other cubes, a new, dynamic shape emerges.
