Glass House Mountains House in Maleny, Australia by Bark Design Architects

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

Article source: Bark Design Architects

Designed for expatriate Australian clients in international banking working in Bucharest, Romania, the ‘Glass House Mountain House’ in Maleny celebrates its site, perched on the edge of the remnant rim of the Glass House range, as well as the essence of its place – ‘sky and mountains’. Translated into a place of ‘glass and stone’ inextricably connected to its landscape it has qualities of being anchored, robust and earthbound as well as being transparent, light and floating.

Terre et Eau in Rigaud, Canada By BLOUIN TARDIF Architecture – Environnement

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

Article source: BLOUIN TARDIF Architecture – Environnement

The design of the residence had to meet three important challenges: architectural reconciliation of a Mexican inspiration in a Quebec context; exploration of a prototype house with predefined materials; and the objectives of LEED® Canada certification. The living spaces traverse, overlook, and gravitate around the patio, a large volume in which the effect of vegetation and a body of water is magnified through optimization of fenestration and the building’s orientation. The volumes have irregular contours to control sunlight and views; solar gain is maximized.

Corriente Alterna Visual Arts School in Miraflores, Lima, Peru by Barclay & Crousse

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

Article source: Barclay & Crousse

The extension of the Visual Arts School of Lima supposes a challenge in different issues:

The relationship between old and new.  The actual building is an architectural landmark, a very good example of neo-colonial architecture of the 1930’s  The addition should be respectful of the existing building but we considered it should also be a testimony for XXIst century architecture in Lima.

A house modeled after the city, The site for this project is located in a dense residential area on a slightly recessed plot extending away from the street. The client’s requirements were for a house that would ensure a degree of privacy while also remaining well-lit, comfortable and relaxed. In terms of privacy, we decided to create a space that would remain closed to the exterior while drawing attention to its surrounding conditions as design features, reflecting the external urban environment within it.

Casa Xonar in Silves, Algarve, Portugal by Studio ARTE

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Article source: Studio ARTE

There was a time when Silves was the capital of great Andalusia, conquered by the Moors and ruled  for centuries, traces of Islamic architecture can still be found in the city once named Xelb, Gharb Al-Anadalus.

The name given Casa Xonar has the meaning to rest, sleep and dream, it offers a perfect retreat in the centre of the old city of Silves. With echoes of this past, Xonar reflects its historical surroundings in the sharpest way, from its Islamic exterior of white washed design to its rooftop terraces and  hidden rooms, the concept of private lifestyle runs throughout.
