Our proposal’s aim is to make the people an active part of the building’s life, by exploring it, by being seen and by simply coming together, breeding a sense of tolerance, awareness, identity and mutual respect.

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.

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

Article source: Andrew Trotter 

Masseria Moroseta: a white stone farmhouse standing proudly on the ridge with views across the olive trees to the sea.

Built using traditional techniques and local materials, the modern architecture is influenced by masserie (farmhouses) of the past. Set in five hectares of olive groves with trees up to 500 years old, Masseria Moroseta is an enclave of pared-down relaxation and rural simplicity.

House of Prayer in Litomyšl, Czech Republic by Fránek Architects and MMcité Design

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

Article source: Fránek Architects and MMcité Design

Construqta – sophisticated beauty of concrete

We enjoy referencing basic construction elements in our designs. Moreover, when you want to design a concrete-made piece of urban furniture, especially if it has to be light, a trussed beam is the right inspiration to opt for. Its maximum strength with minimum materials used spells efficiency. The material used is Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) and it has little to do with traditional concrete. In addition, it is quite expense so achieving aforementioned efficiency was not easy for us. The design’s form is rather restrained engineering-wise and austere but to fine-tune its functional properties took month to accomplish – a lot longer than we originally anticipated. Finally, we can rejoice. The monumental, almost three metres high piece of high-grade concrete shows its grace from afar. When observed closely, its intriguing and sophisticated geometrical lines come into play.
