The Project is located in Convento (Chone) a rural area in the Ecuadorian coast, in an overwhelming natural environment where the presence of large forest of bamboo, a small creek running in front of the field and two rainforest mountains that surround the plot, became the perfect scenario to be potentiated through the project and generate the required relation between the owners and the landscape.

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

Article source: SO Architecture

HSM family house was built in kibbutz Yehiam, where Oded Rozenkier, one of the owners of SO Architecture grew up as a child.

This is a one of three houses built by SO Architecture side by side in kibbutz Yehiam. The house was built with a limited budget, using simple building materials in its base – concrete, wood and local stone. It’s a house of delicate and well thought architectural touches, unique perspectives, putting to use the calm beauty of the given lot which includes a moderate slope and a view towards a natural oak forest.

The Abu Dhabi Commercial and Cultural Expo Center by Michael Arellanes II

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

Article source: Michael Arellanes II

The method and means of tectonic principles that govern the dispersion of mass and surface in the project proposal are subject to folding and overlapping of curved tectonic bodies. These tectonic and massing arrangements are intended to create paths of intersection and to architecturally express a forward movement projected toward the sea. The architectural formation is governed by articulation of space for the purpose of international expositions and cultural showcases. Retail and entertainment are also integrated as part of the seascape dynamic Expo Center. As the multi-massed complex is a dispersion of activates ranging from shopping, dining, expositions, and yacht clubs, it transforms the edge of Abu Dhabi into an iconic sea formation. Iconic architectural expressions within the proposal are articulated in the sail composition of being in flight at the precipice of the sea. The flowing sail architectural node within the complex becomes the epicenter of the showcase functions while enhancing the viewing, dining, and entertainment experience.

Fujigaoka T in Kanagawa, Japan by ChikaraOhno / sinato

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

Article source: ChikaraOhno / sinato

This project is a home for a family of three in one unit of a twenty-six year old apartment building.

Although the previous ceiling height was a uniform 2450mm, after checking the structural drawings we realized that the existing height was the minimum required due to the placement of a services pit above, with the slab actually much higher in places, so we proceeded in planning the layout considering this height.
