Twin-Bricks by Atelier TEKUTO

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: Atelier TEKUTO 

This house consists of two family units for the client and his parents and five rental apartment units.

The family block, made of reinforced concrete structure, is located in front while the apartment block, made of steel structure, is located in the back. Exterior walls of the apartment block are made of glass blocks with ALC (autoclaved lightweight concrete) panels used in some parts for seismic reinforcement. The family block is made of reinforced concrete. Lightness and heaviness of the two blocks create a sharp contrast on the site and the same applies to the interior spaces, reflecting different life styles of each of the residents.

Education Center for the University of Cordoba in Spain by Rafael de La-Hoz

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: Rafael de La-Hoz

Cubic form and zero gravity, the Vial-Norte UCO building is the result of the combination of massive volumes with light spaces.

Located in a trapezoid-shape plot, as part of Renfe 2 Masterplan – one of the urban extensions of Cordoba, (Spain), the building seems dramatically weightless, highlighted by the emphasis on the contrast of the façades: glass and concrete.

Ming House in Monterrey, Mexico by LGZ Taller de arquitectura

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: LGZ Taller de arquitectura

The design of the house generates a perception of spaciousness well above the square meters of actual construction. Each one of the generated spaces follow the priority of extending the sight lines: the long entrance corridor that elongates through a linear garden outside; the long stairs that links the second level with the first one and continues towards the length of the swimming pool; every distributing zone visually reaching a perspective of the inner patio.

32 houses in Poitiers, France by Sarl Lanoire & Courrian

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: Sarl Lanoire & Courrian

Urban project

We wished to create a cluster of houses that is both a privacy area and a smoothed porous space, either from the outside or from the inside of the block.

A service road irrigates the hearth of the cluster. It is marked out on both sides by vegetated areas.

The project is a hybrid space, between a square and a garden.

Gardélegui Family dwelling in Álava, Spain by Roberto Ercilla Arquitectura

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: Roberto Ercilla Arquitectura

The old buildings dotted across the Llanada, or plain, of Alava, which make up small village communities, are rather like large warehouses used for a number of purposes: family home, cattle barn, etc.

On the whole, these constructions are very simple in shape, being heavy, with a double sloping roof and small windows.

House # 1.130 in Madrid, Spain by estudio.entresitio

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: estudio.entresitio

This is a single-family house, but quite a large one, something over 5 hundred square meters, site is narrow and long and sloped towards south.

Two different schemes superimposed one on top the other; a longitudinal one, based on spatial forking, and the one underneath, based on a hand fingers like configuration. As a result, it is a fractured mass, ruled by the rhythm of the roof structure.

“Hair salon surrounding a big table”

It is a plan of the hair salon in Moriyama-shi, Shiga.

We design not unusual hair salon which is often located in urban areas, but local adhesion type hair salon into which neighboring people go in spite of themselves and was homely and open to town.

Hustadvika Tools in Norway by Rever & Drage Architects

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: Rever & Drage Architects

This small but multifunctional building was designed and constructed, both as an answer to the clients need for a wind-and-rain shelter at their outdoor summer house-piazza, and as a combined tool-shed and special-occasion-sleep-under-the-stars-facility. A complex program for a modest building, making way for double-functional elements and architectural ambiguity.

The site at the utmost north-western-coast of Norway, presented it with some harsh and always changing weather conditions including a daily spray of salt water.

Tous Office in Mexico City, Mexico by Grupo Arquitech

Friday, July 4th, 2014

Article source: Grupo Arquitech

Located in the north of Mexico City, these offices were conceptualized as a central glass patio that wraps a command element, created by natural wood brackets that surround the curved glass containing the office public uses. This item works as a focal point, as seen from any point and relates each of the parts of the office.

The lighting becomes an ornamental and dominant element. Merged with wood and glass, reflects a modern elegant and natural environment in all its rooms.
