Acrobatic Arts Center in Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile by DX Arquitectos

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

Article source: DX Arquitectos

From the architect. The first mission of the Acrobatic Arts Center building was placed in the city as a container of culture, in which the citizen forms an essential part of it. it is in this relation where the building is completed.

The proposal is based on the communion of two architectural elements which support activities to develop and allow the solution to problems and intentions raised: A first element is the platform that seeks to tie the city, outside, with the existing topography. This platform allows citizens to connect with the building inside.

Haus Dolomitenblick in Sexten, Italy by Plasma Studio

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

Article source: Plasma Studio

The building is located on a hillside in the Dolomites, at the end of a residential area.

The volume has been developed mainly from its pragmatic functional request to host 6 independent apartments with one common circulation: through a cut that marks the main access and the division of the units the volume is splitted into 2 halves. Besides its functional meaning this incision becomes the main defining element of the building: from the cut at either side a strip unfolds that forms the balustrade of a generous covered balcony and ends into the surrounding topography. Following the steep natural hillside with each floor the strips and the façade jump back.
