JORDI AND ÀFRICA’S HOME in Montuïri, Spain by TEd’A arquitectes

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Article source: TEd’A arquitectes

The house is located on a plot, not very large. This situation invites to compact the house on one side, continuing the alignment of the street façade while maximizing the patio with good solar exposure.

The house occupies a corner plot. For this reason, instead of adopting the usual uni-directional organization (street-patio), of houses between medians, the proposal is organized in two perpendicular directions. The house does not have a dominant direction. The house wants to look in all directions.

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Article source: G.G. RAINERI

The via Domodossola 25 condominium is located on a small urban lot, between two existing buildings. The city in which is placed the project, is a semi-suburban area that was mainly developed in the period between the two world wars; the buildings that characterize most of this part of city are mostly in the “novecento” style or Art Nouveau style (the Santorre school Santarosa, the faculty of physical education, the neighborhood between Racconigi road and Peschiera road).

“Kyoku” – Bridge House in Japan by ArchiBlur Lab

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Article source: ArchiBlur Lab

Weight can be felt, but does feeling have weight? The strength of thought in tugging out the tension at the threshold between matter and imagination, for creators, is to return to the nature of architecture and practice its uniquely creative energy.

This creator begins by developing three concepts relating to weight to describe and develop the materiality and spatial characteristics they present. These three starting points act between nature and artificiality, and provide feeling with different layers of weight sense.

Article source: Coppin Dockray Architecture & Design

Ansty Plum is an architecturally significant house and studio in rural Wiltshire that has undergone an impressive retrofit and a bold studio extension.

It is a gem, consisting of two eloquent and imaginative buildings, commissioned in the 1960’s and ‘70’s by Roger Rigby, a former partner in Ove Arup’s office. The first is a one-bedroom house, designed by David Levitt and the second, a studio and garage designed by Peter and Alison Smithson.

Heterojunctional Pavilion in Gyeonggi Province, Korea by URBAN PROJECT ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN STUDIO

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

Article source: URBAN PROJECT ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN STUDIO

This project considers the Gaon Lake Park in which the building is located as a significant contextual reference. The large park is sitting in the middle of a huge neighborhood with apartment complexes, two hours from Seoul metropolitan area. This unique type of construction is typical of Korean urban development—building and selling thousands of housing units at one time. Although this type of development contains potential negative side effects for the future, the landscape is more positively designed than the apartment complexes in preserving the natural wetland which is left as the original entity in the park.
