House Wago in Shizuoka, Japan by msd-office

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

Article source: msd-office

This residence stands in the suburbs of Hamamatsu, and was designed for a young couple with children. The building consists of a two stories high rectangular box with a meter deep balcony, which functions both as a semi-outdoor corridor connecting the rooms on the upper floor, and as a roof over the ground floor entrance porch and veranda. The 10m wide horizontal opening on the balcony wall made structurally free by use of cantilever, gives character to the outer appearance of the building. The building is situated on the northern side of an irregularly shaped land plot. In the double-height ceiling LDK, the large opening creates a sense of unity with the yard on the southern side, in addition to “borrowing” the forest on the south-western wide as part of the scenery. The open interior space was designed by extending dynamically both in the horizontal and the vertical direction.

Roof over the Walls of the Old Baños Church in Ecuador by BROWNMENESES

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

Article source: BROWNMENESES

BACKGROUND

In response to the need to recover Ecuador’s sites listed as cultural heritage, our professional services were hired by the Coordinating Ministry for Heritage and Culture in order to create an architectural design for a roof for the old church of the city of Baños. These sites constitute a key factor for local and regional development, as well as for that of the country in general.

The old church in Baños is located next to the current Municipality and dates from 1788. It was renovated after the earthquake of 1797, but it was finally reduced to ruins by another earthquake in 1949.
