INOUT house in San Jose, Costa Rica by Joan Puigcorbé

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

Article source: Joan Puigcorbé

This house establishes an uninterrupted ¨inside-outside¨ relationship; a sequence of layers between the open and the intermediary. Frontal boundaries are blurred by sheets of glass and vegetation, framed by two horizontal planes, floor and ceiling, where the full and the void are related via a series of matter, water, vegetation and sky. Lateral boundaries establish the ¨full-void¨ relationship via a series of solid materials that close transversal views.

Three level penthouse by Svetozar Andreev Architectural Studio

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

XVIII century building attic area renovation to three-level penthouse:

“The architect and interior designer Svetozar Andreev needed a lot of imagination skills when he saw the attic of the house he had to redesign. In the result, he turned a dirty attic with a leaky roof into a modern 3-level penthouse apartment. The powerful sunshine through the big rooftop windows fill the whole apartment with natural light. In an interior, besides furniture of well-known brands, the most part of subjects is created according to Svetozar Andreev’s sketches: the kitchen tables, systems of built-in furniture are made especially for this interior.The large terrace allows an owner to have a barbecue on an open air, and it is simple to admire historic center of the city without leaving own apartment.”

IJdock Housing by Zeinstra van Gelderen Architecten

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

Article source: Zeinstra van Gelderen Architecten

In the context of the IJdock complex, where the building volumes result from cutting sightlines out of a rectangular mass, we have merged the obvious associations with ships, rocks or the strange forms of building block in the traditional city into one building, without being too literal.

Renovation & extension of a holiday house in Villers-en- Fagne, Belgium by Dehullu Architecten

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

Article source: Dehullu Architecten

The quality of the existing dwelling consists not only of the building itself, but also of the surroundings and orientation.  On renovating the existing building the architects worked with local materials to stay as close as possible to the original design.  Logically the main living room was relocated in an extension oriented on the beautiful surroundings of the small and rural town of Villers-en-Fagne.  This extension was conceived  in a delicate and quite sober structure.  The living area is suspended between the two slabs of roof and floor.  The connection with the terrace and the green and hilly  surroundings is optimized for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

“Their houses are massive but light and not forceful and scholar. They are not humorous but spreading serenity. … We can openly turn to these buildings and we can bite of them as much as we want, our eyes can eat a lot and appetite of our imagination comes as well.”[i]

Waagenturm by Wilk-Salinas Architekten

Friday, June 5th, 2015

Article source: Wilk-Salinas Architekten 

The Waagenturm is a tower to control the access and weight of the trucks of the BRB, a Berlin-based company for the disposal and recycling of construction materials. In order to reduce the dimensions of the construction the stairs were planned as an exterior area, which covers in the ground floor almost the same space as the closed areas. It is attached to one of the narrow sides of the tower, which is supported by a single central pillar in order to avoid pillars on the corners. The three rooms are distributed in three levels and open to the outer spaces by means of big windows along the façade which also cover the corners. In the first level is the control room, the second level is the director’s office, and in the lower ground floor are the toilets, showers and storerooms. The materials used are the recycled concrete produced by the company, corten steel for the stairs and black profiles for the windows.
