Casa Siena in Sitges, Spain by Guillem Carrera

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

Article source: Guillem Carrera

The site is located in an urban residential low density area surrounded by natural green areas near the sea. A large part of this sector is composed of plots with significant slopes.

The observation of the site and immediate surroundings and distant highlighted that most of the houses that were built or being built in the area followed the same premise: place it in the top of plot – filling the land where the buildings are located, through the widest possible cross-volume, leaving the rest of the site as a garden with difficult use and difficult relationship with the living spaces. Resulting in a disproportionately large number of houses, that are not integrated with the environment.

Kreinbacher Champagne Cellars in Somló, Hungary by Ekler Architect

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

Article source: Ekler Architect 

The champagne making facility is the twin brother of the winery and appears as if it were carved out of the latter’s hill. While different in character, their structures and interiors have much in common. The vegetation covered, reinforced concrete roof of the champagne cellar and its dark grey walls also evoke shapes created by geological forces; the sections and the facades resemble tectonic faults. Its volume creates the impression of freshly rising from the ground. Fermentation takes place underground, processing and administrative work on the ground floor. The large, wide office area overlooks the yard of the plant, while the spacious professional tasting room turns towards the north, offering a view of the hill.

Lodging Building in Somlóvásárhely, Hungary by Ekler Architect

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Article source: Ekler Architect 

The building, the last element of the Somló complex, employs the same tried and tested architectural solutions as the adjacent buildings: it is a hill-house with a concrete structure and basaltic colours. The rooms face southeast and southwest, overlooking the fabulous foothills of Bakony as they extend towards Lake Balaton. Rows of vines run immediately outside the building. The communal spaces have large, north-facing windows that open on to the winery and the mountain, and flank a cosy row of terraces that remain cool even in the summer.

Figueras Polo Stables in La Pampa, Argentina by Estudio Ramos

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Article source: Estudio Ramos

This project is located in a distinctive region of Argentina known as “La Pampa”. Pampa is an indigenous word meaning “plains” or “flatland”. Along with its mild climate and fertile soils, the area is ideal for agriculture. When traveling through this area, there is an overwhelming feeling of a never-ending horizontality. The horizon, as in middle of the ocean, becomes a very strong element. The poet Atahualpa Yupanqui refers to the landscape of The Pampas as “serene and pensive”. This project, with its pronounced horizontalism and simplicity of elements, attempts to make a reference to all of these themes.

Article source: stpmj

Stratum House seeks a new way of concrete casting method simulating a geologic formation. Concrete works in a combination of cement, water and aggregate. Cement is mixed with water to form a paste, and its properties are strengthened together with aggregates. These pastes wrap and fill aggregates of various sizes and become hardened. The project started with a curiosity of concrete composition, its casting process, and reaction on the results from testing the changes of its constituents.

Kyomachi House in Shiga, Japan by HEARTH ARCHITECTS

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Article source: HEARTH ARCHITECTS

This house is located along old streetscape in “Minakuchi-juku”, which is one of Fifty-three stages of the Tokaido.  Although, it was consolidated during the Edo Period. The community road and the space are narrow, so it’s impossible to make large space between the road and the house, and it’s difficult to build a house in the southeast in spite of the corner location in the northeast, which is good site location. So, I arranged inner garden in southeast. In doing so, I not only solved the problem point concerning the ground, but also made rich living climate.
