House in Miramar, Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal by e|348 arquitectura

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Article source: e|348 arquitectura 

It is a building consisting of two distinct adjacent and interrelated volumes, the housing itself – consisting of two storeys plus a penthouse – and a garage.

Although the volume, apparently, is being treated as a solid monolith, it is fully traversed, with vertical and horizontal voids, with the purpose of creating strong visual relations with its contiguous exterior spaces, and allowing the light to enter through the entire house.

In Vatsu, which is the Indian precursor of Fengshui, a large road passing in front of a building is a sign of its prosperity. The site of the new Gurgaon 66 sector is thus priceless, with highways passing on both sides. It will therefore be dedicated to luxury! The program is above all a luxury commercial center dedicated to world-renowned brands, stores, cinemas, and restaurants. There are also office spaces and a hotel with residence services.

Cruise Ship Terminal in the Port in Seville, Spain by ARQUITECTOS HOMBRE DE PIEDRA & buró4

Monday, April 28th, 2014

Article source: ARQUITECTOS HOMBRE DE PIEDRA & buró4

The Port of Seville needed a new Cruise Ship Terminal with a flexible character, multipurpose, extendable, easily removable and even movable. This would permit to accomodate the unpredictable number of passengers in the port and it would not limit the possibilities of the urban-port valuable space of the Muelle de las Delicias. Re-using shipping containers was proposed. On the other hand, the place, near the historic centre, was claiming an object of architectural quality to dialogue with its urban environment.

Alcoutins House in Lisboa, Portugal by Guedes Cruz Architects

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Guedes Cruz Architects 

The site is the plane where our projects become architecture.

It is on this that we build and what we see are the apparent forms, those which appear above this plane.

In the Alcoutins House the real form is that which has as a support a plane which is 3.5 metres below ground level. It is like a lake, where the volumes float or rest on the base, where we see only the part that appears above the waterline.
